The legendary fighter’s latest entry will get an upgrade on January 16 next year and the best part is that new gameplay-related content will be free for all Street Fighter V owners.
Senior Social Media Specialist Capcom Andy Wong said as the name suggested, the latest edition included the highly-requested Arcade Mode, but it also included much much more! If you’ve been spectating on the sidelines or waiting for the right moment to join the fight, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
Watching your childhood heroes just in its trailer is a surreal. The new edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2 – there’s still one more character will be announced very soon.
“In order to introduce more variety in each match, all characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose before the match begins! It’s time to see what else your main character is capable of. We’ll be rolling out more details in the future,” said Andy Wong.
“Being the #1 requested addition to Street Fighter V, we’re making sure it’ll be an experience rather than just a mode. As it’s our 30th anniversary year, we wanted to add even more to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition! Extra Battle Mode, V-Trigger moves, Gallery, and a UI design overhaul are among the features we can’t wait to show you in the future. There’s a lot of information to share with each of these new additions, so keep an eye out as we approach January,” he said.
The initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything mentioned above.
