Capcom is no stranger to releasing multiple versions of Street Fighter. Now, Capcom is set to release a new version of Street Fighter V next year. The new version will be dubbed the Champion Edition.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will release in February 14, 2020 for PC and Playstation 4. The update will come with 40 characters, 34 stages, and over 200 costumes. There will be new V-Skills for every character, as well as a balance update. The new edition will also include any DLC released between now and February. However, the Champion Edition will not include the Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes, and Capcom Pro Tour DLC.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will also include new fighter Gill, who hails from Street Fighter 3. Gill will release in December for all existing players, and will be a part of the Champion Edition. Gill will cost current players $5.99, or 100,000 Fight Money. Also releasing is the Sun Chase Moon stage. It will cost gamers $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money.

Those who own the base version of Street Fighter V or the Arcade Edition will be able to update to the Champion Edition for $24.99. The Champion Edition on its own will cost gamers $29.99. Those who do not upgrade will still receive any game mode additions, and balance changes for free. This includes the new V-Skills for every character.

Street Fighter V will be receiving holiday DLC later this month. New festive outfits will release for G, Poison, and Lucia will release on November 18th for $3.99. The new Holly Jolly Beatdown stage, which gives Abigail's auto shop a winter makeover, will also be released for $1.99, or 40,000 Fight Money. From November 22nd through December 20th, players will be able to earn the Monster Hunter-themed Nergigante costume for Blanka in Extra Battle mode.
