by Rainier on April 16, 2019 @ 9:11 p.m. PDT

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will include everything from the original release of SFV, along with the addition of brand new gameplay content, which will be free to existing players.

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. More details on the new modes and features, including the new User Interface, will be shared at a later date.

This new version will include everything from the original release of Street Fighter V, along with the addition of brand new gameplay-related content including Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, new V-Trigger moves, Gallery, a completely redesigned User Interface and more.

Current Street Fighter V players will also receive all of this new content for free via an in-game update when Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition releases.

In addition to the Street Fighter V main game, the following content will be included in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition:

  • Arcade Mode
  • Extra Battle Mode
  • New V-trigger moves
  • Gallery
  • New User Interface
  • Season 1 DLC characters
  • Season 2 DLC characters

Content not available for free to current Street Fighter V players, but can be accessed using earned Fight Money or purchased in-game currency. For purchasers of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, this content will be redeemable via a download code token.

Curious about Street Fighter V but haven’t gotten your feet wet yet? Well now is your chance as we’re hosting a free trial, beginning April 23 at 1pm PT (download begins at 9am PT) / April 24 at 12am UTC and running through May 5 PT / May 6 at 5pm UTC. For the free trial on PS4, a PlayStation Plus subscription is not required to download and play offline, but it is required to play online. For PC users, the Steam client is required for the trial. All the initial content from the original Street Fighter V and the modes introduced in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition are included for free during this time.

DLC Characters Unlocked – All 16 original characters included with the game are playable in the free trial, including classics like Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, M. Bison and more! As a bonus, four fan-favorite DLC characters will be available for free during this trial: Akuma, Blanka, Juri and Menat! These four characters will only be available in Ranked, Casual, Battle Lounge, Training, and Challenges.

For those of you who already own Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition but have not yet acquired Akuma, Blanka, Juri or Menat, these four characters will be unlocked to you during the free trial period as well. If you decide to purchase any of these characters during the trial, you keep any progress made with each character. 

Arcade – Introduced in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, this mode allows you to relive the past main entries in the series. If you’re able to defeat all the computer-controlled opponents under various conditions, you can unlock over 200 unique illustrations from multiple artists which can be viewed in the Gallery.

Versus – Play against another local player or against the computer with different difficulty levels.

Challenges – Learn how to use each character in Demonstrations and Trials or see how long you can fight in Survival Mode.

Training – Practice against a dummy AI as you test out set-ups, combos and get used to a character without the pressure of a real match.

If you have friends or family who have always wanted to try Street Fighter V, let them know this is their chance!

Breath of Fire II Extra Battle Content

What do Falke from Street Fighter V and Katt from Breath of Fire II have in common? From May 10 to June 7 in Extra Battle Mode, Capcom is teaming up these two heroines for a crossover costume featuring the beloved role-playing classic originally published in 1994. Both Falke and Katt expertly wield staves in battle, and both know guys named Ryu (different dudes) – what match could be more perfect?

Additionally, you can obtain the Breath of Fire II background music during this time in Extra Battle Mode, which will also be available May 10 through June 7! 

M. Bison’s Classic costume returns to Fighting Chance

For those who missed out on M. Bison’s more traditional look last November, obtain a Fantasy Fortune Reading and pay Menat a visit – you might just unlock M. Bison’s Classic costume! Try your luck between April 23 and June 15 when M. Bison’s Classic costume returns to Fighting Chance.
