Street Fighter V: Champion Edition launches on PS4 next February

New version collects 40 characters, 34 stages, 200+ costumes, and also marks the return of Street Fighter III boss Gill

Get ready to rule the ring with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition! This action-packed new version was just announced for PS4 and 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.

It also includes each character, stage and costume that released after Arcade Edition and that will release with Champion Edition. With 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes, Champion Edition is the most robust version of Street Fighter V yet!

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 for MSRP £24.99 / €29.99 beginning on 14th February, 2020. For current owners of any version of Street Fighter V, an Upgrade Kit for MSRP £19.99 / €24.99 grants you instant access to all available Champion Edition content as it becomes available leading up to the launch date.

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 (V-Skill II) 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 or earned free-of-charge by completing various in-game challenges and receiving Fight Money.

Gill

Champion Edition also heralds the return of Gill, a master of both Pyrokinesis and Cryokinesis who is able to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance).

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 lets fly with a standing roundhouse, it’ll hit opponents with a frozen force.

Gill is ready to reveal himself to the world as part of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition on 14th February, 2020 or he can be acquired separately starting in December for MSRP £4.99 / €5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

Happy holidays and enjoy the street fights!

Is this £24.99 for a version of the game that a lot of people have spent a money on a ton of it’s DLC? And to upgrade to this one there’s £5 discount off the standard price?

And are all these things unlocked without Fight Money? Cos the FM really killed the fun in the current SFV. So hard to even make much at all especially since I rarely find players online and when I do it’s been someone so far away the fight’s been laggy as heck so I’ve been stuck with half the content unable to be used cos the only other option to the FM is real cash and I can’t afford all that. I really enjoy the game itself, I just feel I been priced out of most the extra stuff due to micro transactions . Ultra SFIV felt a better value purchase overall even though I prefer SFV’s play and graphic style.

I assume the more appropriate title would be Street Fighter V: Rip-Off Edition. Back then, I bought the waaay overpriced (half finished) release version, I will not pay another € 24.99 for sure. Laughable.

To be fair, I saw this a little with SFIV. Thats why I’ve not bought V yet.

I’m a Fan, but fan of my money more.

Nice, guess I might buy this. I’m a fairly casual fighting gamer these days and pretty much been waiting for a nice SF5 budget re-release since the SF5 launch.

Link to the Upgrade pack?

Why don,t they just re-release as a full price game with a large amount of new Content Characters Stages bonus Stages plus Content from all previous versions Despite it still has horrible overtones form the Original game released back in 2016.

Sadly to say this has been the worst entry in the Street fighter series

Well you clearly haven’t played all the SF series….

Have you played Street Fighter EX3 or the Movie game?

I suppose one small bonus is that they’ve finally stopped making you buy the entire game again for 2 new characters. Now if Arc System Works would do the same.

Ok i upgraded and man, all that now ‘purchased’ content. :O Loads of stuff i didn’t have before, characters, stages, colours, profiles… . I mean, now i feel bad for the people who paid for a ton of the content and must have spent at least a couple hundred pounds. But i’mma gonna spend the next hour or so playing with my new stuffs. :)

This why there are eleven mortal Kombat games to Street fighter’s five.

It’s mainly because SF’s creators count using random words instead of just numbers and don’t really understand how sequels work.

Mortal Kombats “11” is a bit odd, as for some reason they count random non canon crossover games.

I guess if SF did the same they’d be up to like “15”?? (Street Fighter, II, III, VI, V, Alpha 1, 2, 3, Ex, Ex2, Ex3, Xmen vs, Marvel SH vs, vs Tatsunoko, vs Tekken, not including all the games that added 2-4+ new characters but weren’t sequels)

to be fair the Alpha and EX series are spin-offs and different enough from the core series to have their own numeration. It’s not like how Microsoft number their Xbox consoles. :P

Was about to buy it (regular version for cca. €12) but when I saw how many thing (fighters and costumes) is missing, no thanks!

Regular version is missing all that stuff. Upgrade kit gives you 99% of all the stuff so it’s a good deal if you have the main game already or else wait til Febuary for the Champion Edition (which pretty much is the regular game with the Upgrade kit included) for £24.99. I’m really happy with the upgrade kit. Loads more characters and costumes and stuff I didn’t have before. :)
