Update: Whoomp, there it is!

As we assumed, this edition includes all 28 characters as well as the new modes. For those of you who already own Street Fighter V, these gameplay additions will either be included in a future update or unlockable via fight money.

Original Story: 

The listing for Street Fighter V Arcade Edition appeared today, specifically for Playstation 4. It’s apparently set to drop January 16, 2018.

There are no images within the listing and it’s ‘currently unavailable’ but it does have a product description.

As far as descriptions go, it’s fairly standard. It references the ‘Arcade Mode’, with 6 different paths modelled after classic Street Fighter games, the ‘Gallery’ which includes hundreds of illustrations and ‘Extra Battles’ which are timed challenges that reward exclusive content throughout next year.

If the listing is to be believed, each character will have new v-triggers, adding ‘more depth to the combat system’. Improved visuals are also being implemented, meaning new colour schemes, revised menus and extra fight effects.

In welcome news, current Street Fighter V owners and future players of Street Fighter V Arcade Edition will all be placed into the same player pool. With this and the combination of PS4/PC cross-platform play, Capcom is keen not to split the player base at all, which seems sensible.

While Street Fighter V Arcade Edition will come complete with all of the new bells and whistles, Street Fighter V players will still be able to earn the future content through the earned in-game currency, fight money.

This is the first updated version of Street Fighter V made available since its release in 2016. Capcom is no stranger to repackaging games, Street Fighter IV saw several different versions including an Arcade Edition and an Ultra Edition, which steadily bundled new characters, costumes and stages.

SFV is also the first game in the series to not have an arcade machine counterpart. While this edition could just be a cool subtitle, it’d be weird to have a Street Fighter V Arcade Edition and no actual machine. We’re sure that time will tell when this is officially announced.

Street Fighter V is available on Playstation 4 and PC.

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s Retry Wording Has Been Updated in a Subtle Manner

Despite the numerous praises players have showered upon Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, there is one particular aspect of the game that has garnered nothing but criticism: the perplexing wording of its retry screen, which players encounter when facing a Game Over. Fortunately, the developers have discreetly resolved this issue in the game’s latest patch. They have fixed the Platinum Trophy progression, resulting in a slightly less confusing experience for players.

If you don’t possess exceptional combat abilities, chances are you’ve come across the game’s notorious four options: “Retry from Current Battle, Retry from This Battle, Retry from Before Battle, or Resume.”. As an avid gamer, I must admit that I’ve experienced the frustration of losing precious time due to my own foolish mistake. In this particular instance, I found myself engrossed in fine-tuning my matrix and equipping my party, only to have it all go to waste when I encountered a formidable enemy. To compound my error, I made the ill-advised decision to retry the battle, resulting in an hour of agonizing repetition. Lesson learned!

The “Retry from This Battle” option has become a source of frustration for players who are struggling with the game’s final boss encounter, leading to a significant number of rage-quits. Without giving away any surprises, opting for that choice after being defeated would result in players being sent back to the beginning of the final boss encounter, needlessly forcing them to forfeit approximately an hour’s worth of hard-earned progress in battle.

After the update, players now have the option to select “Retry from the Current Phase” instead of “Retry from Before the Current Battle.”. It’s worth noting that this change is only slightly improved. It’s rather disappointing that the screen is overly convoluted, which may lead to players feeling frustrated. While it’s better late than never, we can’t help but wonder if this issue will persist in the future.
