Capcom has announced Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for release for PS4 and PC on January 16th, 2018 for $39.99 United States dollars. Owners of the current game won't be left out; they'll receive access to all of Arcade Edition's new stuff via a free update.

The updated version will be available digitally and physically in North America and Europe for a recommended retail price of $39.99.

The DLC characters from seasons 1 and 2 included in this edition are Alex, Balrog, Guile, Ibuki, Juri, Urien, Abigail, Akuma, Ed, Kolin, Menat, and one final combatant from season 2 who is yet to be revealed. Those who don't now have Street Fighter V can purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, and it will include everything we mentioned above. Over time, Capcom has added everything from new characters to a comprehensive story mode to the game.

Elsewhere, the fighting game community can expect a redesigned user interface and other improvements in the visual department. Complete all four challenges each month and receive a special premium costume exclusive to this mode. It also introduces a second V-Trigger for all characters.

There's no cover art at present, but we do learn about the new Arcade mode.

"DLC characters in Street Fighter V [are] earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called fight money".

Players will be able to get their hands on the game starting January 16, 2018.

One of those mistakes is that for no reason that anyone can understand the original version of the game didn't ship with an arcade mode, and even after fan uproar Capcom refused to add one.

"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". Dividing the game's player base is never a good thing, and it's great to hear that that won't be happening with this new version.
