Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition was released on January 16th, 2018. This update adds several new features not available in the original, including an arcade mode and new v trigger abilities for all characters. A new bonus game was also added, featuring 2P from the original Final Fight. The bonus game has players destroying barrels, and you've got 2P to help you out to do it -but you can also hit him if you aren't careful! To complete the bonus game you need to destroy all twenty of the barrels.

When the game was announced, Capcom also revealed the season 3 characters, one of which is Cody! He's got a new look, and has become the Mayor of Metro City. Whilst he's out of jail, he's still getting into fights, and has a mix of his Final Fight moves along with some brand new attacks. His story mode has him trying to get used to his new job, with help from Marlowe, who previously aided Haggar in his Mayor duties. Cody struggles to come to terms with his responsibilities, and gets into a fight with Abigail as soon as he sees him. He later meets Zeku, and fights him as well.


Owners of the standard Street Fighter V get the new content for free via a patch. There is also a disc release, which includes all of the new content along with the season 1 and season 2 characters, however, these are provided via DLC codes. So you'll need to buy a new copy of the game rather than used, at least if you want the extra characters. This game is available on Playstation 4 and PC.
