Capcom Unity Post:
Prepare yourselves, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is coming out on January 16, 2018! If you've been spectating from the sidelines or are waiting for a reason to join the fight, now is the time! In addition to the highly-requested Arcade Mode, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition contains a bounty of new features you'll want to check out. Let's get to it!
From the beginning, we promised that you'll only need to purchase the original Street Fighter V, which we're sticking to. All the new gameplay-related content – Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, a second V-Trigger, the Gallery, and more – will be available as part of a free in-game update for current players! Those who don't currently have Street Fighter V can purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, and it will include everything we mentioned above.

I guess we'll get more info at NYCC. Also, it's nice to see Rashid & Menat get highlighted (given their popularity).

I also noticed quite a few new stages in the background.

didn't they say they wouldn't be releasing new versions of the game? or has that plan just gone by the wayside
Clearly someone didn't watch the video or read the description.

They said there wouldn't be mandatory paid updates. All the gameplay stuff in AE are coming to existing owners for free.

I would say the OP should include this description but people are gonna drive by shit post anyway and not read so...yeah.

"There is never going to be a Turbo or Ultra release."

Of course not because the are calling it Arcade Edition. ;)

This looks like a worthwhile package though if you have not jumped in yet.

Trailer is a little underwhelming. But, the new intro cinematic (which is what I assume this is) is definitely an improvement. I'm excited for new V-triggers but I hope that isn't the only gameplay addition we get.

Wow, only $40. Might be worth the purchase for me. I only bought the Season 1 characters & got Akuma with fight money. Season 2 pass is $30. If it comes all of the costumes & stages, then I'll just buy the Arcade Edition.

This was such a no-brainer move by Capcom and they deserve props for adding more than just a standard arcade mode. Providing all the new content as a free update is icing in the cake. Aside from the turbulent launch, their handling of SFV has been pretty damn good.

This is a great way to get new players to purchase SFV. Good move Capcom. Wondering if this was a backup plan for MvCI doing badly or if it was planned for this fiscal year all along.

Since SFV was already out, it'll be part of Capcom's catalog sales and not new skus, so it really won't help bolster the sales for MvCI. Hoping MonHon World is up to snuff...Capcom doesn't want to take a hit on that one.
