CAPCOM Street Fighter 5 Arcaded Edition LEAKED features new modes new moves and more

Today Capcom officially announced the Arcade Edition of the popular game, and it includes a slew of new content.

According to a brief trailer (above) for the game, it will contain all of Season 1 and 2 DLC characters, including Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, and all new V-Triggers. While all of the new features will be added to the original Street Fighter 5 for free, the Arcade Edition will also come with codes to unlock all Season 1 and 2 DLC characters.

Verizon reveals Yahoo data breach affected all 3 billion accounts
All 3 billion Yahoo user accounts were compromised during a 2013 data breach, the company announced today. Verizon revised the number of breached accounts to three billion after receiving new information.

The updated version will be available digitally and physically in North America and Europe for a recommended retail price of $39.99.

However, if existing players of the game want to access the bonus DLC characters, they'll have to complete in-game challenges and use the in-game currency Fight Money to access them. It's the only game in the series that hasn't had an arcade machine - Street Fighter IV, believe it or not, launched in the arcades before hitting home consoles.

All morning flights to and from Srinagar airport were cancelled in view of them, officials said. The old airfield, being manned by the Indian Air Force , is also located in the area.

If you already own the original Street Fighter V, there's no need to worry.

The biggest news here is that the Arcade Edition is bringing new V-triggers for all characters, upping the number of available V-triggers two for each one. A new mode that will allow players to go against a couple of characters all at once may also be coming to the game. This same release date was also mentioned by the previously reported listing, which means that it is probably not a placeholder.

While Street Fighter V has its early adopters, there are a chunk of folks that have not picked up the latest iteration of the franchise. Taito stated that they have no current plans to release the game into arcades. After struggling at launch due to server issues and a perceived lack of content, Capcom has instead stuck by the game and continued to add more and evolve the experience through updates.
