Street Fighter 5 beta update reveals new alt costumes, including Officer Chun-Li

New duds for the World Warriors

Capcom released an update for the ongoing Street Fighter 5 beta this week that secretly contained a fresh batch of previously unseen character costumes, including a long overdue police uniform for Interpol's Chun-Li, seen above.

Street Fighter 5 players managed to datamine those costumes from the updated beta files and eventually get them working in the game.

Other Street Fighter 5 characters also got new alternate costumes, players discovered, namely Bison, Cammy, Laura, Rainbow Mika, Rashid and Zangief. (Mika and Zangief are getting matching wrestling outfits, it seems.) You can see some of those costumes in action — including the previously revealed pre-order incentive costumes — in a gameplay video below.

For a more detailed look at some of the still-unannounced costumes, check out this gallery on Imgur. The screenshots from Reddit user rkappasvoice show off Birdie, Cammy and Karin's new costumes (sadly, there appears to be no cure for Cammy's deadly allergy to pants).

And for a look at another new Street Fighter 5 costume that's getting a lot of attention, here's a high resolution gallery of Laura's new alt outfit, which borders ever-so-slightly on NSFW.
