Capcom reveals Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for PS4, PC


Capcom is gonna Capcom not matter what. And while it may not be “Super Street Fighter V Turbo Champion Edition”, we are indeed getting Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, which sounds more or less like what we’d expect from what sounds like a complete edition release.

Scheduled to launch on January 16th for the PS4 and PC, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will feature the original Street Fighter V and all the season pass DLC characters, plus a new Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, new V-Trigger moves, a Gallery and even a redesigned UI, for only $39.99.  Current SFV players will receive the update too, minus the DLC.

See the trailer and screens/art below! Feel free to pre-order it from Amazon already too.

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, an updated version of the latest game in the hit fighting series that will release exclusively for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC on January 16, 2018. This new version will include everything from the original release of Street Fighter V, along with the addition of brand new gameplay-related content including Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, new V-Trigger moves, Gallery, a completely redesigned User Interface and more. Current Street Fighter V players will also receive all of this new content for free via an in-game update when Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition releases. In North America and Europe, the new version will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and as a digital download on Windows PC for $39.99 MSRP. For European pricing, please check with local retailers.

In addition to the Street Fighter V main game, the following content will be included in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition:

  • Arcade Mode
  • Extra Battle Mode
  • New V-trigger moves
  • Gallery
  • New User Interface
  • Season 1 DLC characters*
  • Season 2 DLC characters*

*Content not available for free to current Street Fighter V players, but can be accessed using earned Fight Money or purchased in-game currency. For purchasers of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, this content will be redeemable via a download code token.

In the upcoming Arcade Mode, players can reminisce in the Street Fighter series history as they celebrate the last 30 years of the multi-million selling franchise. Choose from six different paths and compete in matches against CPU opponents to reveal unique endings based on player performance. In Extra Battle Mode, a new series of time exclusive challenges will be available for players to use their Fight Money for the chance to receive an exclusive premium outfit each month. Complete all four challenges each month and receive a special premium costume exclusive to this mode. With extra challenges being added and more unannounced content on the way, Street Fighter V will continue to deliver new and refreshed content on a regular basis throughout 2018 and beyond. More details on the new modes and features, including the new User Interface, will be shared at a later date.

Current players of Street Fighter V and future owners of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be placed into the same player pool, with PS4 and PC cross-platform play continuing to unite fans into a unified player base. The initial Street Fighter V purchase is still the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up-to-date version of the title. All of the post launch gameplay content, such as the DLC characters in Street Fighter V, is earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who just can’t wait to unlock each piece of new content, content can also be obtained instantly using purchased in-game currency.

Season 2 of the 2017 Character Pass and DLC content for Street Fighter V continues until the end of the year, with one final character still to be announced and released, along with a host of additional costumes. Stay tuned to the official Street Fighter channels for all of the latest news.
