Earlier today, Capcom announced Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition was coming out at the beginning of 2018.
According to a brief trailer (above) for the game, it will contain all of Season 1 and 2 DLC characters, including Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, and all new V-Triggers. According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, the V-Triggers are a new, secondary one added to each character that will be chosen pre-match.
Perhaps the greatest news out of all of this is the fact that Arcade Mode will be a free update for anyone who already owns Street Fighter V. For this who have yet to take the plunge, the game will set them back $39.99.
More on the game below:
First off, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2 – there’s still one more character that we’ll be announcing 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.
As previously stated, Arcade Mode will be present, but this isn’t your cookie cutter version. 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.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Mode is set to release for the PlayStation 4 on January 16.
