40 Characters, 34 Stages, 200+ Costumes Action-Packed Into New Knockout Edition

 

LONDON – 18th November 2019 – It’s time to fight like a champion and rule the ring! Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game will release on 14th February 2020 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC. Also announced today, Gill makes his angelic return to the series joining the roster for Champion Edition and available to current Street Fighter V players beginning in December 2019. New trailers for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and Gill are available to download from the Capcom press center now.

 

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition 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. Champion Edition adds each character, stage and other content that released after Arcade Edition and will include all launch content coming to this new version. In total, this robust edition of Street Fighter V features 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.

 

Champion Edition also heralds the return of Gill, the leader of the Secret Society and the end boss of the Street Fighter™ III series. Gill is a master of both pyrokinesis and cryokinesis, allowing him to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance). Typically plotting behind the scenes, Gill 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 be added to the Street Fighter V roster as part of Street Fighter: Champion Edition in February 2020 or he can be acquired separately starting in December 2019 for MSRP $5.99 / £4.99 / €5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

 

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation®4 and as a digital download on Steam for MSRP $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99 beginning on 14th February 2020. Beginning 18th November, current owners of any version of Street Fighter V can purchase MSRP $24.99 / £19.99 / €24.99 Upgrade Kit, which offers instant access to all unowned Champion Edition content as it becomes available leading up to the 14th February release.

 

The initial Street Fighter V purchase is still the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up-to-date version of the title. All game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all DLC characters remain earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Certain additional content can only be acquired using Fight Money, which can be earned through normal gameplay.
