Super Street Fighter IV gets its new batch of DLC costumes, Sagat gets a wig

Looks like it’s time once again for Street Fighter fans to dust off their wallets and get some new threads for the characters. Capcom has announced a new batch of costumes, and as before, they’re pretty hit or miss. A lot are pretty good, while others are true “What were they thinking?” moments. Check out this video for a quick glimpse of all the new costumes in action and then we'll have a quick chat and discuss which ones are "fierce" and which ones come up "short". Now that's comedy.

 

 

The Best:


M. Bison

At first you may see this Bison costume and be like “Ehh, he looks goofy” well you’re missing the fact that this costume is a direct tribute to the classic Gundam villain Char Aznable. Makes more sense now right? I also like to think that in his personal time Bison is secretly a Gundam fan who’s into cosplay.

 

Rufus

Rufus is a disgusting blob no matter what he’s wearing, but it’s good finally seeing him wearing something a little less bizarre. Tapping into his biker back story, Rufus is looking like the classic fat American Harley fan, covered in too tight leather with his ass crack hanging out. The tribute to his girlfriend Candy on the back is a nice touch. It’s in-character and well executed, essential parts of a good costume. 

 

Balrog

Given his miserable "cornrows and diamond gloves" costume from the last set, this dapper Mad Men-esque throwback outfit is a nice change of pace. Looks like Balrog might actually have a shot at Dudley's "King of Class" crown.

 

Chun Li

It’s been requested since the first alternate costumes were announced, so it’s nice to see Chun-Li’s sporty Alpha costume finally making an appearance. Looks like Chun-Li might be sporting some Adidias Sambas there too, nice choice!

 

Adon

An interesting choice for Adon that draws heavily on classic Thai design and patterns. It might be a bit too wacky for some, but it’s colorful, bold, character appropriate, and the pointy shoulder pads match his swooping hair very well.

    Uh,fellows,I do believe there is a typo right inyour catch line. "Big Touch Guys"? Is that really what you meant to say? Yes, they do reach out to touch someone with their mits, but that still seems like an odd turn of phrase. New GamesRadar lingo? Ryu's dock worker costume may not be so great, but at least they didn't go for the lazy shredded gi route this time. Goku wore that look out in the Dragon Ball Z Budokai games. On the flip-side: Cammy covered from head to toe in a a Lin from Breath of Fire-Dragon Quarter meets Cat Woman style costume? Madness. Vega/Bison/Dictator's would be perfect if they threw in a mask,though. Putting in Char's Zaku would turn Super Street Fighter 4 into Steel Battalion or CyberBots, so that wouldn't be reasonable to hope for.

    Young man, I think you're being a bit harshly opinionated on these designs.

    The Gou Hibiki outfit is worth the $4 alone for me.

    It's about damn time that they brought back Chun-Li's Alpha costume! It's just too legendary. Some of the others are embarassingly bad. I think that Ryu's is actually somewhat traditional Japanese in a way, since that costume is similar to what Japanese men wear in parades for festivals. Sagat and Rufus made me laugh for 5 minutes straight.

    Alpha Chun-li for the win!

    I usually play Ibuki, and I'm not sure how I feel about hers... but it doesn't matter, because I feel that the costumes are a little overpriced. I do find the Cammy catwoman one interesting, all of her alternate costumes have been pretty cool.

    Can't. Watch. Video....on. iPod. Want to see costumes. Can't. listernemarine feel unsatisfied.

    @ventanger I refuse to bow to Capcom's obvious cheesecake ploy!
  • ChrisCultista - September 23, 2010 9:10 p.m.

    Yes, but does Chun-Li get bigger thighs? Thats the important part.
  • ventanger - September 23, 2010 9:10 p.m.

    No mention of the Cammy Cat Costume? Thought you'd have plenty to say about that.
  • BudokaZ - September 23, 2010 8:55 p.m.

    Char Bison. Capcom has decided to merge two of my favourite things together. SIEG SHADALOO
  • GamesRadarMichaelGrimm - September 23, 2010 8:55 p.m.

    @infernox Dudley's got a new costume, you can check it in the vid. Didn't have time to comment on every single one sadly.
  • infernox - September 23, 2010 8:43 p.m.

    no new dudley costumes? balrog does look cool in that costume but dudley is just too classy.
  • paganpoet - September 23, 2010 8:42 p.m.

    Cammy's new catwoman look is kind of bizarre...not sure how I feel about it yet. She's my go-to Street Fighter, and I was not so fond of her M. Bison costume from the last set of costumes.
  • Ampatent - September 23, 2010 8:38 p.m.

    Not so sure about the opinions on Ryu and Rufus, I think Ryu's doorag look is awesome. I do kind of agree with Sagat, while I would have preferred a new style, I still think it's neat to see "young" Sagat. Adon, though, is totally badass.
  • donutman7 - September 23, 2010 8:27 p.m.

    Prob gonna pick up rog just to get that costume on
