(Update) Well, there’s an Amazon listing for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Slated for January 2018

[Update: Confirmed! Capcom has noted that it’ll be arriving on PC and PS4 on January 16, 2018. It’ll sport an arcade mode, extra battle mode, V-triggers, a gallery, both seasons of DLC (if you buy the new version, otherwise you have to unlock/buy them), and a new UI.]

One of the more persistent rumors in the fighting game scene was that Capcom would eventually release an expanded edition of Street Fighter V as they’ve done in series past. Although they’ve pushed Street Fighter V‘s new business model of setting a platform to build content on, many still expected an eventual “Turbo” edition. I mean, it’s Street Fighter after all. 

Well, now there’s an Amazon listing for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. According to the listing the new release includes: 

  • Arcade mode – choose from six different paths themed after classic Street Fighter games
  • Gallery – unlock hundreds of illustrations as you play through arcade mode
  • Extra battle – complete timed challenges to obtain exclusive costumes throughout 2018
  • New v-triggers – each character will have two v-triggers, adding even more depth to the combat system
  • New visuals – the user interface is being redesigned with new Color schemes, revised menus and exciting pre-and-post-fight effects

There are no pricing details as of yet, but it does have a release date listing of January 16, 2018. Also, it seems it’ll still be only for PlayStation 4 and PC (though admittedly the wording avoids a hard confirmation on this) as the rest of the description states: 

Current players of Street Fighter V and future owners of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be placed into the same player pool, with PlayStation 4 and PC cross-platform play continuing to unite fans into a unified player base. The initial Street Fighter V purchase is still the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up-to-date version of the title. All of the post launch gameplay content, such as the DLC characters in Street Fighter V, is earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called fight money. For those who just can’t wait to unlock each piece of new content, content can also be obtained instantly using purchased in-game currency.

Would you purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition? What price will it have to be?
