To add a bit of spice to its highly popular fighting video game, "Street Fighter 5," Capcom has now announced some brand new post-release content that will be coming to players next week. Among the new content that will be added will be a remastered version of the original Thailand stage that was found in "Street Fighter 2."

Capcom initially made the announcement at the company's WonderCon 2017 panel in Anaheim, California. Following up on the announcement, the company published a new post on the Capcom Unity website that detailed the different content that will be coming to the game.

Staying true to the original

The Thailand stage, which was originally featured in "Street Fighter 2," will be quite familiar to fans of the franchise.

The stage itself was originally home to the game's end boss, M. Bison, although other characters such as Sagat were also featured in the particular stage.

Capcom announced that they will be staying true to the overall design of the stage and will simply be improving it using the new game's engine. Different aspects of the stage, including the intricate bell and statues, will reportedly be recreated in great detail, according to the developer. The game's iconic theme music will also be included, which may possibly be edited to have a more modern tone.

Scrapped night stage

In the post, the developer revealed that they were actually experimenting with a night time version of the Thailand stage. The company even posted concept art of the planned night version of the Thailand stage, complete with lit candles in the background.

However, the company chose to scrap the idea as they simply wanted to stick to the original concept as much as possible.

Cool new costumes

Aside from the new Thailand stage, Capcom has also announced a number of brand new school-themed costumes for Ryu, Junri, and Chun-Li that will be released with the remastered stage on #April 25. Chun-Li will be getting an honor student costume, while Juri gets a gothic style short skirt uniform. Ryu, on the other hand, will be getting a "Bancho" look, which is a typical student delinquent gang leader in Japan. The costumes and the stage will be available to purchase for $3.99 each. The stage can also be purchased for 70,000 Fight Money, which is the game's in-game currency. Capcom didn't really clarify in its post whether the costumes could also be bought with in-game currency.
