Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced; Releases in 2018

Capcom recently revealed Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, adding the much-requested arcade mode to the game as well as a few bonuses.

The announcement came via an announcement on Sony’s PlayStation Blog. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will feature all 28 characters in the original Street Fighter V version from Season 1 and 2. Not only that, each character will receive a second V-Trigger that you can assign to your respective character before the match begins. The most noticeable addition to this new version, as the name suggests, is the much-requested Arcade mode. However, Capcom put their own touch to the mode, adding an Extra Battle mode, Gallery and a UI design overhaul.

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 Edition releases for PS4 on January 17, 2018. Make sure to check out the accompanied trailer below:
