Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition plays at its core the same as the original Street Fighter V, but with various quality of life improvements and additional modes that were either heavily requested or announced, but never released.
It will most likely see balance changes since it overlaps with the possible beginning of Season 3.
With the release of Arcade Mode, it is currently unknown what has become of Survival Mode, it has either been removed from the game or has been moved to “Challenges”.
|Name||Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition|
New UI: The general UI has seen various visual changes. The main menu now sports a yellow and gold palette as opposed to black and blue. The character select screen has been revamped to accommodate for extra fighters. The background of the select screen has been changed from a globe to a gold arena. The UI while in fights has also gotten gold plating and the Critical Art and V-Trigger meters have been changed and text has black borders.
Second V-Triggers: Every returning character has received second V-Triggers that can be selectable on the character select screen.
Bonus Stage: A bonus stage is available. The player is tasked with breaking twenty barrels as they plummet into the center of the screen from conveyer belts above. The player will also have “help” from a computer-controlled character who will keep the barrels in the center using his own move set. Final Fight enemy character Two P appears as a CPU opponent. ModesEdit
Arcade Mode: The standard arcade mode that is seen in other Street Fighter games. In this installment, there are six modes that can be played in that represent each major game of the franchise: Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter IV, and Street Fighter V. Each one contains returning fighters sectioned into the games that they first appeared in. There are over 200 arcade endings featuring illustrations from various artists (players can head into the Gallery to find out the unlock condition for each ending). The endings range from simply completing a path to getting a “Perfect” on the bonus stage. Extra Battle Mode: Time exclusive challenges that allow players to fight NPCs from A Shadow Falls in order to gain premium exclusive costumes.
Gallery: A library of artwork for Street Fighter V, such as concept art and the arcade mode endings.
Team Battle Mode: A returning mode from Ultra Street Fighter IV. A heavily customize-able mode where numerous characters in two teams are queued up in various fights and each fighter are eliminated in a queue until one team’s fighters are all eliminated. Once a fighter is eliminated from one side, the next fighter in that team line-up fights the character that eliminated the first fighter.
At launch, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition includes all 28 characters from the original version of the game, including all the Season 1 and 2 DLC fighters. Players who buy the retail version will get the DLC fighters for free via download code, but players who download Arcade Edition as a free update for the original game will still have to pay for them. The Season 3 DLC will become available for the first time with this version, which will include four frequent veterans and two new fighters, bringing the roster total to 34 fighters.
