Street Fighter V is now about a couple of years old since its first release and is now available on the PlayStation 4 and on PC. Its predecessors came into arcades, and this version did not follow the way. But things has changed when Capcom and Taito have announced at TGS 2018 that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is on its way to the arcade in Japan.
This has been made possible due to the publisher officially paired up with Square Enix. The arcade edition will be based on the currently available ‘Street Fighter V: Arcade Version’ on the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game.
This will include all of the characters introduced into the game and some fresh like Sagat and Cody. This incoming release features a USB-supported new arcade cabinet, wherein the players can either choose to use the built-in controllers or plug their own preferred controllers.
This game can be possibly released in 2019 at the EVO 2019 event that will be held in Japan, but there is no confirmed release date yet. This update is expected to rival the famous arcade games including Dragon Ball FighterZ that is making its way too.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be tested on different arcades from October 5 through 7 across Japan. Here is the list of the locations:
- Taito Station Shinjuku Minamiguchi Game World in Tokyo
- Round One Fukuoka Tenjin in Fukuoka
- Sega Namba Avion in Osaka
- Plaza Capcom Kichijoji in Tokyo
- Nagoya Leisurelan Sasashima in Nagoya
We have no clue for the release in the US yet, but we may expect that it will expand its distribution to an expanded reach of locations like on Round One and Buster because these places are full of the latest fighting games. Even though we have a lot of questions on might yet to be answered, this game is worth our wait as we can expect that it will be available for us too.
