Game company Capcom has had a bit on their shoulders with the upcoming Capcom Cup 2018 happening in December. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t allowed to enjoy themselves with a few new cosmetics and looks for their hit title Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. And over on their official Street Fighter twitter account, they’ve been having a couple of days of new skins, both in time for the wintery holiday season, as well as the 2018 tournament.
Their first set of skins was announced on the Street Fighter twitter a day ago, showing off the four new holiday-themed skins for Cody, Sakura, Blanka, and Falke, as well as the new holiday themes sets and maps that match:
Cody on the streets is frightful, but Sakura is delightful.
Since Falke has learned to let go, Blanka glows, Blanka glows, Blanka glows!

The little video shows off their introduction walk-ins in the festive cosmetics as well as how the cosmetics look when they’re fighting. Falke has the extra step of having a candy cane as her new weapon instead of the traditional one she has in her regular skin. Each new cosmetic comes with it own fun little twist on the holidays, and it gets players into the spirit.
The second tweet revealed some new cosmetics that are a little less festive, but perhaps a bit more cross-over.

Resident Evil meets Street Fighter is finally something that’s happening within the Capcom universe. These aren’t the actual Resident Evil characters taking the place of Cammy, Urien, and Kolin, but rather they just happened to steal Jill Valentine’s, Wesker’s, and Ada Wong’s clothes.
With these skins announced to day, there has been a bit of a rather comedic take on Cammy wearing Jill Valentine’s clothes from the first Resident Evil game. This is the first time Cammy’s wearing pants:
YOU GAVE CAMMY PANTS. THIS NEVER HAPPENS
