Champion Edition adds each character, stage, and other content that released after Arcade Edition and will include all launch content coming to this new version. Fighters can battle their way through a variety of exciting single-player and multiplayer modes designed for players of all skill levels, including Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Team Battle, Ranked Match, Casual Match, and more. If you haven’t yet hit the streets, this is the perfect time to join the fight. 40 characters, 34 stages, over 200 costumes—all action-packed into one knockout edition! READY? FIGHT!

All game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all downloadable content characters remain earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Certain additional content can only be acquired using Fight Money, which can be earned through normal gameplay.
