Street Fighter V - will this be a new beginning for the game?
"With extra challenges being added and more unannounced content on the way, Street Fighter V will continue to deliver new and refreshed content on a regular basis throughout 2018 and beyond", Capcom said. We have much more to share on each of these modes and more content to reveal in the future! Additionally, every character in the game will be augmented with a second V-Trigger, which is a huge change.
The Amazon page does not list a release date, but this is looking more and more likely at this point.
The highlighted features confirm the arrival of the long-awaited arcade mode, which will feature six different paths themed after classic installments in the franchise.
