Capcom Announces Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

The backlash was enough to prompt Capcom to commit to "completeness" in future releases a few months later, and while the newly-announced Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition probably isn't a directly result of that pledge, it does fit its promise rather nicely. If you've been spectating from the sidelines or are waiting for a reason to join the fight, now is the time! Players that have yet to take the plunge can pick the game up for $39.99 on PC and PlayStation 4.

What's Included: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will include everything from the original Street Fighter V release, plus all Season 1 and 2 Character Pass content, which includes 12 playable characters and 12 premium costumes. Introducing a new V-Trigger (which is basically a super-powered move) could significantly change Street Fighter V's playstyle.

Capcom's bad luck with leaks continues, although this time it's Amazon who is at fault. The first mode was the most sought mode that all of the fans wanted for this game. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be adding a couple of new modes including the long awaited Arcade mode everyone requested after finding out there was no single player options besides survival mode. You'll fight against AI opponents along "six different paths", each with their own unique ending.

If the listing is to be believed, this new edition of the game will be free for all current Street Fighter V players and is expected to release on January 16, 2018. Other than that, the title gets a completely redesigned user interface and a new gallery of illustrations.

This is all to say that while Street Fighter V certainly wasn't a bad outing for the series, there were certainly elements of the game's development and launch that could have gone better.
