'Street Fighter V' (ALL) Champion Edition Reveals ​​​​​New Characters, Stages and More - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 5, 2020 @ 11:26 a.m. PDT

Street Fighter V is the latest installment in the fighting franchise, adding new fighters, several new locations, and cross-platform play.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Champion Edition adds each character, stage and other content that released after Arcade Edition and will include all launch content coming to this new version. In total, this robust edition of Street Fighter V features 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes. Fighters can battle their way through a variety of exciting single-player and multi-player modes designed for players of all skill levels, including Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Team Battle, Ranked Match, Casual Match and more.

Champion Edition also heralds the return of Gill, the leader of the Secret Society and the end boss of the Street Fighter III series. Gill is a master of both pyrokinesis and cryokinesis, allowing him to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance). Typically plotting behind the scenes, Gill is now ready to reveal himself to the world, as he sets out to fulfill the prophecy that the Secret Society has coveted since ancient times.

Capcom revealed new details on the characters, stages and other content coming to the fifth and final season of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.

Announced by the Street Fighter V development team, Dan, Rose, Oro, Akira and one yet-to-be revealed character will be joining the hard-hitting roster. These newly-confirmed characters are currently in production, so additional details and in-progress images and gameplay footage will be shared in the months ahead as these new characters take form.

Dan (Winter 2020)

A mainstay from the Street Fighter Alpha series and last appearing in Street Fighter IV, Dan Hibiki will be bringing his (over) confidence and iconic “Taunt” to Street Fighter V. A training partner of Ryu and Ken, Dan considers himself well-equipped to “school” other players with his unique Saikyo-ryu (“Strongest Style”) fighting style.

Rose (Spring 2021)

Rose is a fortune telling fan-favorite character who also previously starred in the Alpha series and Street Fighter IV. Using her tarot cards, Rose will arrive armed with a variety of unique special moves and plans to channel all of her Soul Power energy into Street Fighter V.

Oro (Summer 2021)

Last appearing in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Oro is an ancient martial arts master who exists as an immortal hermit. He restricts one of his arms from use in order to give his opponents an advantage, but that won’t stop Oro from being one of the most well-trained and powerful fighters in Street Fighter V.

Akira (Summer 2021)

First introduced in Capcom’s 1997 fighting game Rival Schools: United by Fate, Akira Kazama is preparing to make her Street Fighter debut. As an acquaintance of Sakura, Akira has previous ties to the Street Fighter universe and is gearing up to bring her biker style look and clever gimmicks to Street Fighter V.

Final Character (TBA)

Release timing: Fall 2021

In addition to these five new characters coming to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, over 30 new costumes and four new stages are also being planned, including a Rose stage (Spring 2021), Akira stage (Summer 2021) and two new Capcom Pro Tour stages arriving in Winter 2020 and Fall 2021.

A new battle mechanic and new battle balance adjustments will be available in Winter 2020 as free updates to all players, adding even more gameplay enhancements and depth to the game’s combat system.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Champion Edition adds each character, stage and other content that released after Arcade Edition and through the launch of this new version. In total, this robust edition of Street Fighter V features 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes.

Both the full version and upgrade kit of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition are currently on sale for 25% off on PS4 (digital only) and on Steam (digital only). The digital upgrade kit offers current owners of any version of Street Fighter V instant access to all unowned Champion Edition content. For new players, a free trial featuring all 40 characters is underway on PS4 and Steam and all versions of the Street Fighter V base game are currently 60% off.

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 game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all DLC characters remain earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Certain additional content can only be acquired using Fight Money, which can be earned through normal gameplay.
