Both BCRF costumes for Chun-Li and Ryu will be available globally in versions PS4 and Steam from Street Fighter V for a limited time starting October 12, 2021 and ending November 12, 2021. The costumes will be offered individually, each for $ 5.99 USD or both together for $ 9.99 USD, with all proceeds received going to breast cancer research.

Breast cancer

Every 14 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Globally, breast cancer causes the highest number of cancer-related deaths among women – with an estimated 685,000 women this year alone. But thanks to research, progress is possible. In the US, breast cancer deaths have declined 40 percent since BCRF was founded.

"This year, breast cancer has become the most common cancer worldwide, affecting 2.3 million people," said BCRF President and CEO, Myra Library. “The need for better and more effective treatments has never been greater. We appreciate the opportunity to highlight this critical need through Capcom's broad reach. Through this partnership, we are prepared to make a direct and tangible impact on advancing life-saving science – together.”

Capcom will disclose the total amount of your donation after the end of the campaign.
