Capcom today announced that Street Fighter V: Champion Edition (order here), the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game, will release on February 14, 2020 for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Gill will also make his angelic return to the series joining the roster for Champion Edition and available to current Street Fighter V players beginning in December 2019.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. 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. In total, this edition features 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes. Fighters can battle their way through a variety of single-player and multi-player modes designed for players of all skill levels, including Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Team Battle, Ranked Match, Casual Match and more.
Champion Edition also heralds the return of Gill, the leader of the Secret Society and the end boss of the Street Fighter III series. Gill is a master of both pyrokinesis and cryokinesis, allowing him to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance). Typically plotting behind the scenes, Gill is now ready to reveal himself to the world, as he sets out to fulfill the prophecy that the Secret Society has coveted since ancient times. Gill will be added to the Street Fighter V roster as part of Street Fighter: Champion Edition in February 2020 or he can be acquired separately starting in December 2019 for MSRP $5.99 / £4.99 / €5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and as a digital download on Steam for MSRP $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99 beginning on February 14, 2020.

The initial Street Fighter V purchase is still the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up-to-date version of the title. All game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all DLC 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.
