The new school uniform DLC for "Street Fighter 5" was first seen during the E3 2017 event and they are scheduled to launch on June 27 and each costume is worth $3,99 USD, EventHubs reported.

R.Mika's school uniform outfit deviates from her normal wrestling attire in "Street Fighter 5." She lets her hair down in this alternate outfit and dons a traditional sailor-style school uniform that can be seen in Japan. She also comes equip with fly accessories such as her thick-rim glasses and friendship bracelet.

Taking a page out of "Rival Schools" character Kyosuke Kagami's book, Charlie Nash comes dressed in a white gakuran uniform. His uniform also features a hall monitor's sash.

Lastly, Ibuki's new alternate sees her wearing her traditional fuka school uniform witha red scarf, which pays tribute to fellow Capcom ninja, Strider Hiryu.

In other news, Capcom and Bandai Namco Entertainment entered a new business partnership in order to improve "Street Fighter 5's" online matchmaking feature.

One of "Street Fighter 5's" biggest problems has been the its online experience, from its net code to its matchmaking. "Tekken 7" on the other hand, has one of the best online experiences since its launch and seeing as the sequel gives off a well receive online treatment, a strategic partnership between the two companies makes sense, PvP Live reported.

The partnership between Capcom and Bandai Namco is also hinted to revive the crossover sequel, "Tekken X Street Fighter." Bandai Namco stopped development of the game due to "Tekken" producer Katsuhiro Harada not wanting to split the "Tekken" and "Street Fighter" communities.

"Tekken X Street Fighter" is still currently on hold and Harada added that timing for the game is not right. When asked if players can still expect the game to be out at some point, Harada stated that releasing the second crossover will be fitting when everybody has forgotten about, and it would have the most impact, marketing-wise. As such, the development team should not expect the game to be released anytime soon.

Harada added that "Tekken X Street Fighter" will be possible depending on the success of "Tekken 7" and Capcom's "Street Fighter 5" in terms of sales.

"Street Fighter 5" is currently available on the PS4 and PC platforms.
