And here it is, the official announcement of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. As the Amazon leak suggested earlier today, the reworked package will feature an Arcade Mode as well as a bunch of other improvements and additions. It also includes all of the Season 1 and Season 2 characters. Arcade Edition launches on the 16th January, 2018 for $39.99.

The good news is that all of this new stuff (excluding the DLC characters) will be free to those of you who already own the game -- all you'll have to do is download an update and you'll be sorted. Hurrah!


As previously rumoured, the Arcade Mode will be presented in a number of different formats based on past Street Fighter titles. It'll be accompanied by a gallery and a complete user interface overhaul. Additionally, every character in the game will be augmented with a second V-Trigger, which is a huge change.

You can catch your first glimpse of Arcade Edition in the reveal trailer that we've embedded above. Will you be reforging your fists early next year? Don't mess up your inputs in the comments section below.
