Darkstalkers Costumes Coming to Street Fighter V on April 3rd
Capcom announced that starting April 3, the Khaibit Costume for Menat, Lilith Costume for Juri, and Donovan Costume for Urien from Street fighter V will be available for purchase for MSRP $3.99 each on PlayStation and Steam. These three sinister costumes are inspired by characters from Capcom’s own Darkstalkers series, a fighting game series set in a horror universe featuring characters inspired by various monsters.
Check out some screenshots of the Darkstalkers costumes in Street Fighter V:
“Khaibit Costume (Menat) – Darkstalkers fans may be wondering what a Khaibit is as it’s not the name of any playable character. If you guessed it draws inspiration from the mummy Anakaris, you’d be correct!
The Khaibit first appeared in Darkstalkers 3 as Anakaris’ partner who can be seen in certain animations, especially during Pharaoh Decoration. Later, Khaibit became a secret character in Capcom Fighting Jam Midnight Bliss.
Lilith Costume (Juri) – A portion of energy that was split from Morrigan by Belial and sealed. After 300 years, the separated energy formed another consciousness called Lilith. Being a cheerful succubus, Lilith’s goal was to reunite with Morrigan in order to continue her existence.
Donovan Costume (Urien) – Donovan Baine is half-vampire and half-human. Following a horrific event, which caused his vampire side to take control and drink the blood of everyone in his village, he devoted himself to Buddhism. In the Darkstalkers series, he travels with a little girl called Anita, who wields mysterious supernatural powers.
Both Juri and Urien are available in the Season 1 Character Pass while Menat is available in the Season 2 Character Pass. All three characters can also be purchased individually for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. If any of the Character Passes or individual characters are purchased with real money, you’ll automatically receive their Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 and Default Costume colors 3-10 unlocked!
Prepare for the incoming mummy, succubus, and vampire madness when these Darkstalkers costumes appear on April 3!”
