Capcom has announced a new version of Street Fight V that brings together all the DLC along with the return of an old enemy to the roster.
If you’ve been looking for a reason to pick up Street Fighter V, or been waiting on it’s roster to fill out more completely, then your time is nearly here. This morning Capcom has announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will arrive on February 14, 2020. For only $30 you’ll get 40 characters, 34 different stages, and hundreds of costume.
Even better, another classic character will be joining the roster: Gill. The leader of the Secret Society will join the fight as part of the Champion Edition. If you already have the game, however, you’ll be able to pick up Gill separately next month (so you won’t have to wait long):
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 or 100,000 Fight Money.
