Capcom announced at the Tokyo Game Show 2018 event on Sunday that it will release the Street Fighter V game in arcades in Japan in 2019. Taito is working with Capcom on the arcade version. Location testing will be from October 5-7 in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka. The arcade version will be based on the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition upgraded version of the game. Arcade terminals will include USB ports so players can plug in their own controllers.
Street Fighter V is the latest entry in the Street Fighter fighting game franchise. The game contains new features, such as V-Reversal moves, and a special V-Trigger mode. The game shipped in February 2016 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam).
The Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition game is a free downloadable upgrade for the game that launched in January. The updated game is also available to purchase separately. The upgrade includes Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, more V-Trigger moves, Gallery, and a UI design overhaul.
The game launched with a core of 16 playable characters, including: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie, Vega, Karin Kanzuki, Necalli, Rainbow Mika, Zangief, Laura, Rashid, Dhalsim, and F.A.N.G. CAPCOM also released Alex, Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri, Urien, Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, Menat, Zeku, Blanka, Sakura, Falke, and Cody as post-release downloadable characters. Capcom released the game's free "A Shadow Falls" story expansion DLC in July 2016.
