Street Fighter 5’s bringing back Vega’s classic cage match stage

The pulled Thailand stage will also return

Street Fighter 2

Street Fighter 5 will bring back a classic Street Fighter 2 stage next week as part of a substantial update for the game. Vega’s cage fighting stage, named Flamenco Tavern, is coming to Street Fighter 5 as downloadable content on May 30.

And yes, Vega can still climb the cage.

Flamenco Tavern will cost $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money, Street Fighter 5’s in-game currency. Street Fighter 5 players will also be able to once again purchase the Thailand stage, which was pulled shortly after its initial release due to “unintentional religious references” contained within the stage’s music. The Thailand stage will return May 30 with new background music. It too costs $3.99 or 70,000 in Fight Money.

May 30 will also see the release of Street Fighter 5’s newest character, Ed. He’ll go for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

Finally, an update for Capcom Fighters Network will also roll out next week. The CFN revamp will include updates to Street Fighter 5’s rage quit penalty system, reduced loading times, matchmaking improvements, a friend management system and more. Capcom will give players 50,000 Fight Money if they sign into CFN between May 30 and June 13 to try it out.

More details about next week’s Street Fighter 5 update are available at Capcom Unity.
