Capcom's not content to just mine its past with Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Today at the Capcom Cup 2017 tournament, Capcom showed two new trailers regarding the future of Street Fighter 5. The first was the opening cinematic for the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, which ended with the full roster of six characters coming to the game for Season 3.
Sagat and Blanka are back from their Street Fighter 2 purgatory, Sakura returns from the days of Street Fighter Alpha, and Cody is still dealing with jail after his Final Fight days. The last two characters, Falke and G, are new. Falke appears in the cinematic next to Ed, tying her firmly to M. Bison's Shadowloo organization. Nothing is known about G, though the trailer recalls facets of Uncle Sam.
The second trailer was for Sakura, showing off her basic gameplay and V-Trigger moves. The other characters didn't get the same spotlight, but that's because Sakura will be the first out of the gate, launching with Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition on January 16, 2018. She'll launch with a new stage outside her home and three additional costumes.
If you're new to the series, Arcade Edition is a great entry package. For $39.99, players get Street Fighter 5 with all of the improvements Capcom has added since launch, including the new Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, a brand-new UI, and all of the Season 1 and 2 DLC characters.
If you've already jumped in on SF5, Arcade Edition will come as a free upgrade, but without the additional characters. The Character Passes for Season 1 and Season 2 currently cost $19.99 and $29.99 respectively, so it's actually cheaper just to buy Arcade Edition if you haven't already purchased them. I'd expect the Season 3 Character Pass to also retail for $29.99. Otherwise, you can still earn each character with in-game Fight Money.
And no, the game isn't coming to Xbox One or Switch yet.
