Street Fighter V had a rocky launch, but despite that, it is still one of the biggest fighting games out there. At this year’s North American Regional Finals of the Capcom Cup, it was announced that the game would be getting even bigger. Capcom will release a new version of Street Fighter V, dubbed the Champion Edition version, on Feb. 14, 2020.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will include all 34 stages and over 200 costumes that have been introduced since Street Fighter V launched in 2016. It also includes new V-Skills for every single character. Fighting Chance, Pro Tour DLC, and collaboration costumes will not be included in this package.
As always, all game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. In fact, all-new V-Skills are being added for each character and, along with a new balance update, will be available for free to current players in December. All DLC characters can still be purchased separately. They can also be earned free-of-charge by completing various in-game challenges and receiving Fight Money.
Champion Edition also marks the return of Gill, a master of both Pyrokinesis and Cryokinesis who is able to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance. All of his heavy normal attacks, and all but one of his special moves, have an elemental alignment. When Gill throws out a fierce punch, it’ll be engulfed in flames, and when he uses a standing roundhouse, it’ll hit opponents with a frozen force.
This edition will be available for $29.99. Current owners of Street Fighter V can buy an upgrade kit, available on PS4 and PC for $24.99, at an earlier date. Gill, who was teased at the end of “A Shadow Falls” story mode, will be included in the package. If you don’t want to wait until February, you can also pick him up starting next month for $5.99 or 100,000 in Fight Money.
