Capcom have once again proved what good eggs they are and have announced a new charity drive with Street Fighter V
In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Street Fighter V is teaming up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the largest private funders of breast cancer research in the world, to offer all-new themed costumes for playable characters Chun-Li and Ryu. These special edition pink hued charity costumes are designed to bring more awareness and support for breast cancer research. The two BCRF costumes for Chun-Li and Ryu will be available globally in the PS4 and Steam versions of Street Fighter V for a limited time, beginning on Oct. 12, 2021 and ending on Nov. 12, 2021. The costumes will be offered individually each or both together, with all proceeds received going to breast cancer research.
Every 14 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Globally, breast cancer causes the greatest 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 U.S., deaths from breast cancer has declined by 40 percent since BCRF was founded.
About the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF)
Breast cancer is a complex disease with no simple solution. Research is the key to stopping it in its tracks. Founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world. We invest in the best minds in science—from those investigating prevention to metastasis—and foster cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our approach accelerates the entire field and moves us closer to the answers we urgently need. We can’t stop now. Join us in fuelling the world’s most promising research.
So basically, nice one Capcom. Keep doing what you do.
