With the release of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition next month, a lot of changes are coming to the Capcom fighter, including changes to Fight Money. A new mode will be available at Arcade Edition’s release, named the Extra Mode, will update the game’s challenges to have you spend Fight Money in an attempt to complete challenges and earn special costumes. Also, some other modes will lose the ability to earn Fight Money in them, but other methods will let you earn the currency faster.

Andy Wong provides more information on the Capcom Blog:

HOW DOES EXTRA BATTLE WORK?

Every month, there will be at least one Crossover Costume up for grabs, which can only be obtained by playing Extra Battle mode with Fight Money. Here’s the flow of how to go about getting these exclusive costumes:

  • Each Crossover Costume requires you to complete four challenges that take place over the span of a month – one challenge per week.
  • Each time you attempt one of these challenges, you must spend 2,500 Fight Money, In other words, if you successfully complete each of the weekly challenges in one go, you can get that Extra Battle Costume for 10,000 FM!
  • Once you complete all four challenges, the Crossover Costume for that month is yours!
  • These challenges are time exclusive, so make sure to log in each week to complete them, especially if you have your eyes on that month’s Crossover Costume.

CHANGE IN WAYS TO EARN FIGHT MONEY

Beginning January 16, modes that offered one-time finite batches of Fight Money will no longer do so. This includes Character Stories, the General Story (A Shadow Falls), Trials, Survival, and Demonstrations – if you haven’t completed these modes yet, there’s still a few weeks left to do so before the changes occur in January!

If you’re a new player worried about getting enough Fight Money to get the Crossover Costumes, you still gain experience points from all modes except for the General Story. You receive Fight Money each time a character gains a level, and playing through each Character Story is a great way to quickly gain experience points for each character. Do this for all 28 characters and you’ll be the proud owner of at least 200,000 Fight Money. Combine this amount with Fight Money earned through online battles and recurring Targets and you’ll have plenty to use for Extra Battle Mode, additional characters and costumes!
