The new version includes all content from the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition minus some costumes.

This version of the game, which releases on 14th February 2020, will house 40 characters (including the newly revealed Gill), 34 stages, and over 200 costumes for all your favourite combatants. New arrivals in the Champion Edition include the fighter Gill, who was revealed today, and V-Skill II, which Capcom says will provide "more options and depth to the combat system".

Rule the ring with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game!

This updated version will include all existing content from Street Fighter 5 and Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition with the exception of the game's Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes, and Capcom Pro Tour downloadable content.

However, even after that first revision, Capcom kept plugging away at its prize fighter, adding a bunch of new characters and costumes and stages.

Capcom announced a new updated version of Street Fighter V with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition for PS4 and PC.

And here's a brief blurb for Gill if you have missed Street Fighter III and aren't familiar with him.

As with every update, the game mode additions and balance updates are free to owners of any Street Fighter 5 version. All DLC characters can still be purchased separately or earned free-of-charge by completing various in-game challenges and receiving Fight Money. For those who can't wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. The Fighting Chance, Capcom Pro Tour, and Brand Collaboration costumes will not be included.

This month, you'll be able to purchase some festive DLC that gives you a new stage and Christmas costumes for G, Lucia and Poison. The slim content at launch has slowly been added to over the years, with the Arcade Edition re-release an attempt to make amends for the shaky start.

A third edition of Street Fighter 5 is due out next year-judging by its predecessor it might not be the last.
