Capcom has released a new Street Fighter 5 stage for players to duke it out on. The stage is called “Skies of Honor” and is tied to Rashid. The two fighters work through their issues on the wing of an airborne airplane, making it the most dynamic stage available in the game.
It’s a cool stage but it could cause some problems for those that play competitively, as the moving background is a bit of a distraction. It may be that the stage is banned in high-profile tournaments, as the Kanzuki Beach stage is.
Of course, the new stage also includes fresh background music, which sounds like it uses elements of Rashid’s existing theme. Unfortunately, there is no one shouting “Ra-Shiiiii-Do” over the music, which is a shame really. Check the stage out in the video above, courtesy of the SFV Mods Street Fighter V Mods YouTube account.
Skies of Honor is available now for either 70,000 Fight Money or $3.99.
On November 7, Capcom announced Akuma will be the next character to join Street Fighter 5. A teaser video shown during the event also revealed another new stage. This one is a rainy backdrop with a dilapidated temple in the distance.
Akuma will be playable at PlayStation Experience, which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center on December 3 and 4. Capcom has not yet announced a release date for Akuma.
