In the video (above) tweeted out by the Street Fighter Twitter account, we get a great look at some of the characters coming to the third season of Street Fighter V, including some sweet new moves from them. For those who don’t know, the six character pass will go live on January 16, 2018, and will include Sakura, Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat.
For more on Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, here’s more information on the arcade mode:
Each path stays true to the characters present in the respective series. For example, you can only select Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Akuma, Laura, Urien, Alex, Kolin, and Ibuki in Street Fighter III’s Arcade path – Sean is represented through Laura while Kolin appears briefly in Gill’s intro.
You’ll find that after every battle, you have a choice on who to fight next, opening up the possibilities of a higher score if you’re confident in defeating the more difficult match ahead of you. Each month, Arcade Mode points are added up, and the player with the highest score will gain a unique Title!
Capcom also confirmed that bonus stages will also appear in the arcade mode. In it, players will have to break 20 barrels that are launched on-screen. There’ll also be over 200 different arcade endings to be unlocked. The unlock condition for each can be seen in the gallery mode, and they range “from simply completing a path to getting a “Perfect” on the bonus stage.”
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is set to release for the PlayStation 4 on January 16.
