Street Fighter V: Champion Edition Announced, Adds Gill As A DLC Fighter


Capcom announced a new updated version of Street Fighter V with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition for PS4 and PC. It’ll be available physically  starting February 14, 2020.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will go for $29.99 for the physical version when it releases this February, but players with Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition can get the Upgrade Kit now for $24.99.  Champion Edition is basically an all-in-one pack that includes all content from the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition minus some costumes. There are plans to add more later through free updates, including new V-Skills and new gameplay improvements, and more depth to the combat system.

Check out a new trailer with more details from Capcom below:

Rule the ring with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game! This all-new knockout edition includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and adds each character, stage and costume that released after Arcade Edition and will release with Champion Edition. In total: 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. In addition to the main game and the included characters, stages and costumes, new V-Skills for each character and a balance update will be released, adding new gameplay improvements and more depth to the combat system. READY? FIGHT!

Here’s a gameplay trailer for new fighter Gill from Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike:

Gill, a master of both pyrokinesis and cryokinesis, is able to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance). Typically plotting behind the scenes, he 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.

Gill will arrive to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition in December 2019. A second character was also announced for the new version but has yet to be revealed.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition releases for PlayStation 4 and PC on February 14, 2020.
