Capcom has announced that Street Fighter V is set to have a major update that will release early next year.
The Arcade Edition update will include new gameplay modes like a new Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, a new Gallery, and a redesigned UI. Additionally, the Arcade Edition will come packed with all 28 characters including one more that hasn’t been revealed yet. Each character will also receive a 2nd V-Trigger, a super ability that depletes a player’s entire V-Guage.
Capcom promises that more content will be revealed as the release approaches. Players who already own a copy of the original version of Street Fighter V will also gain these updates for free. What will not be for free for existing owners is all of the characters in both Season Passes. Players with original copies will still need to purchase the Season Passes to have access.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will launch on PS4 and Steam on January 16th, 2018.
