    Capcom, 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 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. Content will be redeemable via download code token for purchasers of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

    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.

    Didn't Capcom say they didn't want to release a bunch of different versions of Streer Fighter this time around?

    Was it always called the "Playstation 4 computer entertaiment system"? Sounds like something my grandpa woulda said.

    Cross platform is a huge plus. I like that current sfV owners get the new versions updates for free.

    Yes they said that, I even quoted it last February:

    "SFV
    should be seen as a service and not a single stand alone title. A title that will be constantly tweaked, changed and updated for the duration of its lifetime. What is offered on day one will more than likely be unrecognizable within a year or two and Capcom have stated that the base game is all you will ever need to buy."

    This is a free update though if you own SFV so I don't really understand this release. Sounds like they are just trying to get people talking about the new stuff.

    I'll wait for the buggy un-functional Playstation 5 port with a VR 3D Hadoken mode and with customizable changeable color mustache pallets.

    About time, I held off because of no Arcade mode. Tekken 7 will suffice for the time being before this is released.

    You still get to use the same sfv disc you always have.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Sony helped capcom fund street fighter v. It wouldn't exist without them so that's why it's exclusive.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    This release is mainly due to street fighter v having an actual arcade release, like an arcade machine version of the game coming out.

    True but in the long run if you decide to buy street fighter v arcade edition used, it will be just like buying the original version of street fighter v because capcom thought it was a good idea to have street fighter v arcade edition owners get all the characters via a download code instead of just having all the characters on the actual disc which would screw people over who buys the game used.

    Content (which means characters in this case) will be redeemable via download code token for purchasers of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.
