Exclusive: First pics of Super SFIV Classic Costume pack

The follow-up to one of last year’s highest-rated games is still over a month away, but Capcom’s not wasting any time shoveling the hype train full of much-deserved coal. The past couple of months have seen new fighters announced with regularity (SFIII’s Dudley, Ibuki and Makoto being the most recent), and today we’ve got the first shots of a swanky pre-order bonus – the “Super Classic Costume” pack, starring Blanka, Guile, Gen, Fei Long and Dhalsim.

Above: Fei “not Bruce Lee” Long in a sweet-ass Kato costume. Look it up!

Capcom’s Unity blog has the full details, along with direct links to Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop. If you’re not big on pre-orders, the costume pack is a timed exclusive, meaning it’ll eventually become available to everyone. However, you’ll probably end up paying for the pack at that point, and who wants to buy what was once free?

Above: Guile’s ballistic vest should protect from bullets, but what about fireballs, electricity and DNA-stealing bosses?

Above: Dhalsim ditches his crinkly rags and skull necklace for this charming new uniform

    Whats up with the lame follow up they're doing? It seems to me all the shit they're adding could have been done in a DLC....

    If your disagreement is that we shouldn't have to BUY them, I'm with you--it should be free. Alternate outfits add much-needed spice to fighting games. No one wants to see their favorite character in the same tired outfit time after time...after time.

    I really don't get it. Why would people buy new costumes for a fighting game? My only guess is that this kind downloadable exclusive is great for stores. They don't have to stock exclusives like figurines, t-shirts, or art books. You know, cool stuff.
