Capcom has announced Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Slated to arrive on January 16 next year, the game will feature new modes, and the first two seasons of downloadable characters.
In addition to new modes – Arcade, and Extra Battle Mode – the game will add new V-Triggers. It will also feature a “completely redesigned user interface.”
Here’s the rundown of both new modes from the developer (via Polygon):
In the upcoming Arcade Mode, players can reminisce in the Street Fighter series history as they celebrate the last 30 years of the multi-million selling franchise. Choose from six different paths and compete in matches against CPU opponents to reveal unique endings based on player performance. In Extra Battle Mode, a new series of time exclusive challenges will be available for players to use their Fight Money for the chance to receive an exclusive premium outfit each month. Complete all four challenges each month and receive a special premium costume exclusive to this mode. With extra challenges being added and more unannounced content on the way, Street Fighter V will continue to deliver new and refreshed content on a regular basis throughout 2018 and beyond.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be sold as a standalone product at a reduced price. Existing owners of the base game will see the new modes and UI improvements, but not the DLC characters. We’ll keep you updated when New Zealand pricing becomes available.
