Capcom has unveiled another batch of DLC costumes for Street Fighter V. A set of Christmas-themed outfits will be added to the game next week, just in time for the holiday season, and they'll be accompanied by a set of retro costumes that same day.

A total of 10 DLC costumes will be released next week, four of which are holiday-themed outfits for Kolin, Alex, Cammy, and Menat. Alex's new outfit has him don a Santa hat and coat, while both Cammy and Menat's costumes feature cat ears. You can check them out in the gallery below.

Alongside the holiday costumes, Capcom is also releasing a set nostalgia costumes for Karin, Birdie, Balrog, and Chun-Li. Karin sports the outfit she wore in Street Fighter Alpha 3; Balrog dons the attire he wore as a boss in Street Fighter II; and Birdie and Chun-Li's new outfits are inspired by the ones each character wore in Street Fighter Alpha. Chun-Li also gets an additional pair of combat costumes. You can see all of them below.

All 10 of the new DLC costumes will be available on PS4 and PC via Steam beginning on November 29. You can purchase each of the outfits individually for $4. Capcom is also bringing back last year's holiday costumes for Juri, Laura, Zangief, Karin, Ken, and R. Mika, as well as the Frosty Boulevard stage. Those outfits can also be purchased individually or as part of the 2016 Holiday Pack, which will be available for 50% off.

Can someone please count how many costumes Chun-Li alone has at this point?

What do you guys think about DLC costumes? Are they justified payment or just cash-grab? I know on PC I can use mods but I also would like to support Street Fighter V.

@nefphlegm: They're the reason I don't buy Capcom fighting games new anymore. I wait until I can get everything on a good enough sale that it will all add up to approximately the $60 that the game was new.

@NaturallyEvil: I understand how you feel. When SFIV was out I got a bundled costume for Evil Ryu... and that was it... it threw in a few other costumes for other characters I wasn't even using... maybe for like a buck or two. I feel that if I wait though they'll already be working on the new street fighter. I guess it's kinda me just wanting to jump on the bandwagon and seasonal costumes can look pretty awesome.

@nefphlegm: Are you serious?! At 4$ each, what do you think?

@marcsmashing: Yeah, you're right for just one costume that is quite expensive. I wish DLC didn't have to be so pricey. I'll admit I paid $15 bucks on a DLC costume for League of Legends but at the time I enjoyed the game so much it was nothing ya know?

@nefphlegm: Most of them do look cool. I am also more likely to buy DLC if it is a game where the devs keep adding things and I want to support them, like Path Of Exile. It helps if the base game is cheap or free.
