What in the world is going on with this Monster Hunter costume for Blanka?

That’s ... nice ...

The “Nergigante” alternate skin for Blanka in Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition, which depicts the bestial fighter as a dragon from Capcom’s Monster Hunter series.
Uh ... what?

The latest crossover costume for Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition comes from Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise and … hmmm … I don’t know ‘bout that.

The look somehow expects us to see Blanka costumed as the giant dragon Nergigante. Fearsome and bestial for sure, but what in the world is going on here?

Here is a good reply:

This getup is coming Nov. 22 and will be available until Dec. 20. Presumably, one will acquire it by the usual method of completing unlock missions, begun with Fight Money.

The current timed alternate costume available in SF5AE is Poison’s Lady outfit from Devil May Cry 4. Players have another two weeks to pick up her look.
