It’s taken a good couple of years, but Street Fighter V is finally becoming the game it was always supposed to be with its upcoming Arcade Edition update. In addition to the previously revealed arcade ladder modes, Capcom’s also confirmed that the title will be getting a Team Battle option, allowing multiple members of its eclectic cast to duke it out.
The feature sounds pretty fleshed out, allowing you to toggle between various customisation options, like whether you want a winner stays on format or individual rounds. You can also choose how health recovery works, and whether gauge gain carries over between battles. And yes, of course, you can play against friends or the CPU, which shouldn’t need spelling out but you never can be sure with this series these days.
Remember, if you already own Street Fighter V then you’ll get access to all of the new modes for free, so this is shaping up to be a pretty meaty update all things told. Alternatively, you’ll be able to pick up Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on the PlayStation Store or at retail, and you’ll get immediate access to all Season 1 and Season 2 characters for your troubles.
