The Street Fighter V: Champion Edition was announced by Capcom back in November 2019. This would be the latest version of the game, giving people almost everything from Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, with only the Capcom Pro Tour, Fighting Chance, and collaborative costumes and DLC left out. It would also include both Gill and Seth as playable characters.

Street Fighter V first appeared back in February 2016 as a PlayStation 4 and PC exclusive. In January 2018, the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition appeared and added Arcade and Extra Battle modes, more V-Triggers for fighters, and the season one and two DLC characters Abigail, Akuma, Alex, Balrog, Ed, Guile, Ibuki, Juri, Kolin, Menat, Urien, and Zeku.

Update: Yoshinori Ono, Street Fighter V‘s producer, has confirmed that a Nintendo Switch version of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is not in the works. He sent out the following tweet. EB Games Canada has also deleted its tweet about the game.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is definitely coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC on February 14, 2020.
