Capcom released a few skins for some of their most popular Street Fighter characters in order to help out charity that fights against cancer.

Cancer Awareness Month is getting special attention from Capcom via Street Fighter V as the company is teaming up with Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The foundation is the biggest private funder of breast cancer research in the world and Capcom's participation will be done through two dedicated outfits.

Ryu and Chun Li are getting pink outfits, seen on the image above, which will be sold as DLC. The goal here is twofold with the first objective being to raise awareness through the skins that are painted in the well-recognised colour related to fighting breast cancer.

Besides the support and raising awareness, SFV will also have a more tangible impact in this partnership since all the proceeds from selling the two outfits between October 12 and November 12, 2021, will go to BCRF. The skins will be available globally in the PS4 and Steam version of Street Fighter V between the two aforementioned dates. 

Capcom will eventually disclose the full sum that will be donated to BCRF, which will mostly depend on how many players purchase the skins. If the sales go poorly, the company has sort of a failsafe because the minimum donation to BCRF will be $25,000 even if the revenue from sales ends up being lower than that.
