Exclusive: First pics of Super SFIV Classic Costume pack

The follow-up to one of last year’s highest-rated games (opens in new tab)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.

Capcom’s Unity blog (opens in new tab)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?
