Earlier today, Capcom put out a statement saying Street Fighter V is getting a massive update and a re-release titled Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. The arcade edition is slated to release January 16, 2018, and will contain the highly request Arcade Mode, all 28 characters, including the ones from Season 1 and Season 2 DLC. Not only that, each character will have access to a second V-Trigger allowing players to get more out of their characters than before. Personally, I’ve been a lifelong fan of the Street Fighter series and I’m dying to get my hands on my mains and see what’s now possible.
Capcom wrote: “As it’s our 30th anniversary year, we wanted to celebrate by making sure Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition contained a plethora of new content. True to its name, Arcade Mode is coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and will be an experience ripe with nostalgia. Furthermore, we’re adding in Extra Battle Mode, a Gallery, and completely redesigning the UI to amplify the epic quality of this new version. We have much more to share on each of these modes and more content to reveal in the future!”
Not only that but owners of Street Fighter V will be receiving a free update with everything that arcade mode contains. If you’re new to the series you can pick up a physical copy or digitally download Street Fighter V: Arcade mode for PS4 and PC on January 16, 2018, and has an MSRP of $39.99.
