Street Fighter V: Champion Edition Announced - Gill Joins Roster Next Month!

The Grand Finals wasn’t the only hype moment at this year’s North America Regional Finals, as we also announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition! This action-packed new version 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. It also includes each character, stage and costume that released after Arcade Edition and will release for Champion Edition. That’s 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes, making Champion Edition the most stacked version of Street Fighter V yet! Read on for more info on Champion Edition, Gill and the new November content!

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and as a digital download on Steam for MSRP $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 beginning on February 14, 2020. Anyone who pre-orders Champion Edition in North America (other territories may vary) will receive a fierce-looking new costume color for each character. For current owners of any version of Street Fighter V, there’s also a handy Upgrade Kit for MSRP $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99  that grants you instant access to all available Champion Edition content as it becomes available leading up to the launch date.

As always, all game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. In fact, all-new V-Skills (V-Skill 2) are being added for each character and, along with a new balance update, will be available for free to current players next month. All DLC characters can still be purchased separately or earned free-of-charge by completing various in-game challenges and receiving Fight Money.

 

Gill

Now, on a more angelic note, Champion Edition heralds the return of Gill, the leader of the Secret Society and the end boss of the Street Fighter III series. Anyone who finished SFV ’s “A Shadow Falls” story mode will remember the final sequence where Gill was shown to be plotting behind the scenes. Gill is now ready to reveal himself to the world, as he sets out to fulfil 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 V: Champion Edition in February 2020 or can be acquired separately starting in December for MSRP $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

Gill is a master of both Pyrokinesis and Cryokinesis, being able to control fire and ice with perfect elemental balance (hence his outward appearance). All his heavy normal attacks, and all but one of his special moves, have an elemental alignment. When Gill throws out a fierce punch, it’ll be engulfed in flames, and when he lets fly with a standing roundhouse, it’ll hit opponents with a frozen force. But these hot and cold flashes aren’t just for show. They also form the cornerstone of Gill’s unique mechanic – Retribution (bet you’re glad we didn’t say Resurrection).

V-Skill 1 – Divine Comet
Depending on which V-Trigger is selected, Divine Comet will summon either an ice or fire-based projectile. If this missile hits the opponent, they’ll be afflicted with either a flaming aura that slowly reduces grey life or a frozen veil that stops their stun gauge from recovering. If Gill then hits the opponent with an elementally opposed strike, the word “Retribution” appears on screen and the rules get rewritten. His overhead causes a hard knockdown, his standing fierce punch leaves him at plus 10 on hit and he gets more opportunities for juggles and air resets.

V-Skill 2 – Blocking
Blocking can be performed against mid/high attacks or low to deflect the opponent’s attack. It’s effective against strikes and projectiles and it can also be rapidly chained into itself for those “Moment #37” opportunities.

V-Trigger 1 – Primal Fire
Primal Fire powers up Gill’s fire-based special attacks, causing them to set the opponent on fire without having to spend any bar on their EX versions. It also unlocks two additional flaming attacks. Burn Storm is a burning tempest that can be cancelled from most of Gill’s normal attacks and Flame Javelin is a fast moving projectile that strikes the ground like a mini meteorite.

V-Trigger 2 – Ice of Doom
Ice of Doom is the arctic opposite of Primal Fire, in that it buffs Gill’s ice-based specials. It also unlocks two additional moves that are less spicy and more icy. Tree of Frost is a frozen pillar of spikes that rapidly grows from Gill’s outstretched palm. If it strikes the opponent while they’re in a burning state, the Retribution effect will cause a wall bounce. Delay Freeze Lance sets a frosty trap on the ground that functions like a proximity mine. Should the opponent be careless enough to trigger it without blocking, the ensuing detonation will freeze them in place and leave them open for an unabridged combo.

“Sun Chase Moon” Stage

In keeping with their namesake, the Secret Society have hidden bases spread across the globe. The new Sun Chase Moon stage houses one such base, looking suspiciously similar to the spiralling structure shown during Urien’s ending in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. On one side of the stage, the sun looms intently with fierce beams of light, while on the other, the moon hangs in the sky with seemingly perpetual twilight. The structure in the middle also lights up with ancient runes when either player secures a round. The Sun Chase Moon stage will be added to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition or available separately in December for MSRP $3.99 / €3.99 / £3.29 or 70,000 Fight Money.


Holiday Content

As if all this news wasn’t festive enough, there’s more! Beginning on November 18 th , new holiday-themed content will be available in Street Fighter V! Light up the holidays with themed costumes for G, Poison and Lucia for MSRP $3.99 / €3.99 / £3.29. And in weather-related news, a blizzard has apparently hit Metro City and transformed Abigail’s auto shop into a “Holly Jolly Beatdown” winter wonderland! Add this new stage to your collection for MSRP $1.99 / €1.99 / £1.69 or 40,000 Fight Money. The holiday costumes are available on Nov 18 and the stage is coming later this month!

Extra Battle: Blanka (Nergigante)

And finally, for our Monster Hunter fans out there, we’ve got something special. Street fighting and monster hunting go together like, well… Blanka and Nergigante. From November 22 nd through December 20 th , if SFV players get a “Quest Complete” in Extra Battle mode, they’ll be rewarded with a new Blanka costume carved from Nergigante, a ferocious spiky Elder Dragon first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. Current Monster Hunter World: Iceborne players can battle the all-new (and even more ferocious and spiky) Ruiner Nergigante in this recently released expansion!

Ok, that’s all for now, but more exciting Street Fighter V content is in the works. As a reminder, don’t forget to attend (or view) Capcom Cup 2019 (Dec 13-15 in Los Angeles), the culmination of the 2019 Capcom Pro Tour. A winner will be crowned and another new SFV announcement may be coming your way too!

Capcom at NYCC 2019

Capcom will be at New York Comic Con 2019, and we’ll be bringing a whole lot with us! Take a seat in the Mastermind’s chair, walk on the wild side with Rajang, and grab some great Capcom merch at the Capcom booth (#1420). Read on for more details, including where to find the World of Capcom panel!

Games

PROJECT RESISTANCE (WORKING TITLE) – PS4, XB1, Steam
Set against the backdrop of the Resident Evil universe, this brand-new asymmetrical online survival horror experience throws four Survivors into a Mastermind’s twisted experiment. Surviving the three individual stages that make up the demo’s map requires good teamwork and communication, because the Mastermind will use any means necessary to prevent the Survivors from escaping – including taking direct control of the deadly Tyrant.

As a Survivor, you’ll need to take down tough enemies, assist your teammates, utilize special skills, and work together to make it through each stage if you want a shot at escaping. Each character has their own unique role and abilities that can help other Survivors or hinder the Mastermind, making teamwork a key part of enduring enemies and traps as you solve puzzles and search for a way out. As a Mastermind, you’ll use a series of cards to place traps, zombies, and vicious creatures around each stage to thwart the Survivors’ progress, even unleashing the unstoppable Tyrant to (literally) crush the Survivors’ ambitions.

For more info, check out the gameplay video below to see how a full match can play out:

Both the Survivor and Mastermind roles will be playable at the show, so be sure to bring a few friends to play with – or against! NYCC also marks the first time Project Resistance will be playable in North America, so make time to swing by the Capcom booth and check out this unique take on survival horror.

E. Honda, Lucia and Poison Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on August 4th

Three new characters are being added to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition – pushing the impressive roster to 38 fighters. The sumo wrestling E. Honda completes the starting lineup from the original Street Fighter II. Lucia Morgan, a detective from the Special Crimes Unit of the Metro City Police Department, steps up to the plate with her thick Metro City accent and red-hot kicks. And last, but definitely not least, Poison of Final Fight fame brings her cracking whip and striking style to SFV: AE .

These three new challengers are being added to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and will be available on August 4 th individually for MSRP $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. A “Summer 2019 Character Bundle” will be made available on August 5 th for MSRP $14.99 / €14.99 / £11.99  and will include all three new characters, in addition to each character’s Battle Costume and Default Colors 3-10. 

Read on to get the full inside scoop.

E. Honda

Wishing to educate the world on the long-term benefits of a relaxing soak in the tub, E. Honda is re-opening his popular bathhouse – Honda Sento. But as steadfast as his devotion is to all things hot and steamy, his number one passion will always be sumo wrestling. In this respect, Honda-san’s transition to SFV: AE is comprehensive. His Hundred Hand Slap still requires a precise pianoing of punch presses (this time, four rather than five) to let loose with the open palm assault. His Sumo Headbutt still hits like a speeding bullet train, while being susceptible to projectile pressure. And his Oicho Throw still makes him dangerous up-close. But far from a relic of the past, Honda’s formidable V-Skill and V-Triggers take his iconic fundamentals to the next level.

[V-Skill – Neko Damashi]

Honda’s V-Skill is a heavy-handed clap that negates single-hit projectiles. It can cancel into his special moves on block and hit. V-Skill into light Hundred Hand Slap, for instance, is a true block string and leaves Honda at frame advantage.

[V-Trigger 1 – Onigawara]

His V-Trigger unlocks a more potent version of the Sumo Headbutt, called Oni-Daikaku. It can combo from any normal attack, has one hit of armor on start-up and can cancel into a second headbutt called Oni-Muso. Oni-Daikaku can also be used to guard crush the opponent on a full charge.

[V-Trigger 2 – Tajikarao]

Honda’s V-Trigger 2 unlocks a running command grab with one hit of armor. The grab can hit raw or as part of a combo, with Honda slamming the opponent into the nearest corner, gaining frame advantage and removing the opponent’s ability to perform a back recovery. This makes it a particularly strong tool for oki.

Lucia

Having received a tip off from Haggar about a possible plot to take out Mayor Cody, Officer Morgan hits the streets of Metro City in search of answers. Her Gun Smoke command run lets her close the distance quickly with one of four follow-ups – the Rough Chase shoulder barge, Tornado Spinner juggle kicks, Cyclone Spinner anti-air and the Braking dead halt. She also has access to the Dragon Punch-style Hurricane Spinner, the Fire Spinner spinning back kick and flaming projectiles with unconventional flightpaths courtesy of Flipper Shot. All these specials are unsafe on-block unless timed meaty or spaced correctly, but thanks to her strong V-Triggers and a cancellable low forward that hits from afar, she has many ways to combo into them.

[V-Skill – Tap-Kick]

Lucia’s V-Skill is a multi-hitting kick that can be cancelled from most of her normal attacks and leaves her at advantage on hit. You just need to be mindful that it’s very unsafe on block.

[V-Trigger 1 – Burning Fight]

Her V-Trigger 1 enhances all her kick-based special moves, and when combined with her EX command run, can lead to some flashy and highly damaging combos. It also causes her V-Skill to score a knockdown on the final hit, leading to more oki opportunities.

[V-Trigger 2 – Weapon Fury]

Lucia’s V-Trigger 2 equips her trusty baton and unlocks Tactical Weapon. This move can be cancelled from all her normal attacks, is safe on block and can combo into all her special moves. Suffice to say, it’s tailor made for frame traps and extending combos.

Poison

Feeling down in the dumps after parting ways with her former partner-in-crime, Poison returns to Metro City in search of a new headliner for the wrestling federation. She’s received a whip upgrade compared to the short-range slapper she sported in Ultra Street Fighter 4 – this time she’s wielding a looping lasher with lasso-like range. Gone are the rekkas and chargeable projectiles, which are replaced by a refreshing mix of far-reaching normals that are easily buffered into her high kicking and whip whirling specials. And we haven’t even detailed her V-Skill and V-Triggers yet!

[V-Skill – Perfume Swing]

Poison’s V-Skill is a swinging strike that can travel one of two distances. It can be cancelled from some of her normal attacks and allows for a follow-up strike. It can also travel over most projectiles if spaced correctly.

[V-Trigger 1 – Poison Cocktail]

Her V-Trigger 1 gives her access to Molotov cocktails. These can be thrown either straight up or ahead and cause steady chip damage by setting the ground on fire. They’re useful for setups and combo extensions.

[V-Trigger 2 – Poison Glamor]

Poison’s V-Trigger 2 unlocks two commands grabs – Toxic Hold and Toxic Bind. The former does more stun and damage, but has limited range. The latter can hit from over half a screen away, but has more start-up and recovery frames. Both can be used mid-combo.

“Honda Sento” Bathhouse Stage

This stage should be instantly familiar to anyone who played Street Fighter II in the 90s. “Honda Sento” is a modern remake of E. Honda’s iconic bathhouse stage from Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. Blue tiled flooring, individual showers and a sumo-sized onsen – filled to the brim with piping hot water from a nearby hot spring. What better place to kick back and relax with a towel on your head after a hard day of fighting in the streets. The new “Honda Sento” stage can be yours on August 4 th for MSRP $3.99 / €3.99 / £3.29  or 70,000 Fight Money.

Capcom April Fools' 2019 Roundup

It's that time of year again, when you can't believe  anything you read on the internet... okay, this time even more so than your average day: April 1st!

This year, our teams in Japan took some time to go all out on some pretty elaborate and surprising activities. They're not so much about deceiving you, but just having a fun time with our games.

You may have noticed these going live around 24 hours ago, so if you noticed any of these popping up on March 31st, just remember this for next year: Japan Standard Time is roughly 13 to 16 hours ahead of US time zones.

New Details On Street Fighter League: US-Pro 2019

SFL Online Qualifier Phase 2

Hello Street Fighter fans. The Street Fighter League: US-Pro 2019 is officially in progress and we have some updates and new details to share with you!

First, allow us to congratulate the winners of the SFL Phase 1 East and West Coast Online Qualifiers – RobTV and UpToSnuff, respectively. By winning the Online Qualifiers, they’ve placed themselves in the draft pool for SFL 2019.

Phase 2 East and West Coast Online Qualifiers registrations are open right now. If you competed in the first phase, you’re still eligible to play in the second and third phases. Take control of your destiny by registering on the SFL 2019 Smash.gg page and put yourself on an SFL team!

Now on to the actual tournament format of the SFL. As mentioned previously, the 2019 SFL is a 3v3 teams-based competition. Once the captains and players have been determined – via Online Qualifiers and the Community Vote (which we’ll get to in a bit) – a draft will take place to form the six teams.

We’ve put together this handy infographic to visualize the process.

SFL 2019 Infographic

Six teams will compete in a double round robin elimination tournament until we have a winner. However, we’re introducing something a little different to the competition than you’re used to seeing in teams tournaments – the character ban.

Before each match, a team will have the choice of banning one character. Each team will then have to make a strategic decision to determine who will play what characters. Once the character selections are made, they are locked in and repeating characters will not be allowed.

The goal is to introduce a layer of team strategy into the competition rather than focus solely on the individuals.

SFL 2019 Community Vote

If you don’t make it into SFL via Online Qualifiers, you still have a shot through the Community Vote. You can log into the official Smash.gg SFL Community Vote page and opt in right now. The opt-in phase lasts until Friday, March 15, 2019. At that time, the community can then vote on the players until March 17.

The six players with the most votes will win the final spots in SFL 2019 and be placed into the draft pool along with the Online Qualifiers.

That’s it for now but we still have more info to share in the coming weeks so make sure you follow Capcom Fighters on Twitter and Facebook for updates on SFL 2019.

Gear up with a horde of new costumes on February 26 for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!

Ready? Slide into February with new costumes for Ryu, Sakura, Alex, and a certain wrestler from some of Capcom’s iconic series!

Mega Man for Ryu (Mega Man) – Mega Man needs no introduction, as the Blue Bomber and hero of 20XX is just as iconic as Ryu. In fact, if you look really closely, a charged Mega Buster shot almost resembles a Hadoken, making this costume a perfect fit for Ryu! This costume is available for purchase for MSRP $3.99.

Roll for Sakura (Mega Man) – Those familiar with the Mega Man series are probably familiar with Roll, Mega Man’s “little sister” and Dr. Light’s assistant. In the Mega Man Legends games, Roll Caskett is a different character entirely – a genius mechanic and best friend of Mega Man Volnutt who’s searching for a grand treasure. This costume is available for purchase for MSRP $3.99.

Leo for Alex (Red Earth) – Leo is one of four playable characters in Red Earth, a Capcom fighting game series first released in 1996. As the king of Greedia, Leo was cursed to become half-lion half-man by unknown invaders. He has now accepted his fate and holds this curse as a symbol of strength. This costume is available in Extra Battle Mode starting March 15! During this time, you can also obtain Leo’s Theme to be used as background music.

In addition to the ongoing Guts Man costume for Balrog in Extra Battle Mode, all four of the Mech costumes for Zangief, F.A.N.G, Juri, and Abigail have returned as of February 22!

The Gief – He wants to be a bit more humble and hide his true identity in the ring with a mask. But let’s face it, it’s not hard to figure out who’s behind the mask. This costume is available in Fighting Chance on February 26!

BUNDLES

Robot Bundle – Keep those circuits going, because we’re putting the previous robotic-themed costumes from Extra Battle Mode into a shiny new bundle for a limited time. The Robot Bundle is available for $9.99 and includes Mech Zangief, Mech F.A.N.G, Mech Juri, Mech Abigail, the Jin Saotome costume, and the Cyberbots background music.

We hope you enjoy our technological celebration before spring rolls around!

UPDATES

The Ver. 4.021 update slated for release on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 implements design changes to improve operation stability for DirectInput USB controllers used with the Steam version of the game.

If your controller (primarily PlayStation®4 controllers, arcade sticks, etc.) employs DirectInput, launching STREET FIGHTER V after applying the above update will result in the loss of controller functionality.

After installing the 4.020 update, please adjust your settings as per the instructions at the link below in order to resolve the issue.

*Please note that Xinput controllers (Xbox 360 controllers, Xbox One controllers, etc.) do not experience this issue.

Capcom Pro Tour 2019 Full Schedule and Details Reveal

Capcom Cup 2018

Hello World Warriors. As we confirmed at Capcom Cup in December, Capcom Pro Tour (CPT) is coming back for a brand new season. We’re gearing up for another exciting season featuring Street Fighter veterans and up-and-coming new players as they battle to become the world champion.

To help get CPT competitors and community ready for the 2019 season, we have a lot of new details to share with you today, including the  schedule , beginning with Final Round in Atlanta, GA March 15-17 format changes for 2019, and new events!

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition  ( SFV:AE ) will once again be the focus of CPT 2019. Players will compete for a total prize pool worth over $600,000.

We’ve also taken a lot of community feedback into consideration and we’ve made some big changes for 2019. Read on for the full details and be sure to follow Capcom Fighters on  Twitter Facebook , and  Instagram  for all the latest updates on the Capcom Pro Tour.

How to Qualify for Capcom Cup 2019

Thirty-two of the best  SFV:AE  players from around the world will compete for the Capcom Cup. These players will secure their places at Capcom Cup 2019 by competing in Capcom Pro Tour events throughout the year.

We’ve made some modifications to the  rules  this year in an effort to make competition more accessible. Below are the ways players can qualify for Capcom Cup 2019.

The  Capcom Cup 2018  Champion Returns

As the reigning Capcom Cup champion,  Gachikun  will earn an automatic qualifying spot into Capcom Cup 2019. The Capcom Cup champion will need to compete throughout the season for seeding purposes at the CPT finale.

Qualify Through the Capcom Pro Tour Leaderboard

You might notice there is a new Super Premier tier of events in addition to the Capcom Pro Tour 2019 Premier and Ranking Events. Points earned in these events go towards a player’s Global Leaderboard standing. At the end of the year, we’ll be taking the top 26 players from the Global Leaderboard and Regional Finalists to fill out qualifying spots in Capcom Cup 2019. Players and fans can see who is in the running for Capcom Cup at any time by going to the CPT Leaderboards on the Capcom Fighters web site.

Win the Capcom Cup 2019 Last Chance Qualifier

The Last Chance Qualifier will return for Capcom Cup 2019 and will be open to anyone who wants to compete and is not already qualified for the finals, regardless of which region he or she is from. The winner of this tournament will be the last player to qualify for Capcom Cup 2019.

We’ve adjusted the CPT point values this year with the addition of the Super Premier Events and based on feedback regarding Ranking Events.

CPT 2019 Points Distribution

Capcom Pro Tour Event Season

So what’s different about the CPT structure in 2019?

Introducing Super Premier Events

As mentioned, there is the Super Premier Events tier. These events are limited to three specific tour stops – Evo 2019, Japan Premier (venue/location TBD), and North American Regional Final (venue/location TBD). The point values and prize pools will be higher than the standard Premier Event (for NA Regional Finals, this would apply to the open tournament). Winners of these events will have the greatest chance to qualify for Capcom Cup 2019 through the CPT Leaderboard.

Premier Events Structure

2019 will feature 11 Premier Events across the four regions (North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America and four Regional Finals. Looking at the schedule, you can see the biggest difference for 2019 is the return of a Premier Event in LATAM with Game Over and First Attack taking over as the LATAM Regional Final.

CPT Premier Event point values largely remain the same, meaning players who win a Premier Event will still have a great chance at qualifying for Capcom Cup 2019.

Ranking Events Structure

In 2018, we reduced the point values and spread among players for Ranking Events. We received a lot of feedback and have determined that those values needed to be readjusted for 2019. You will see an increase in the amount of points and the overall spread among players.

Online Ranking Events Structure

The overall number of Online Ranking Events is less in 2019 but we have redistributed some of the events for better coverage across certain regions and have added new events as a way to represent certain regions that were not able to compete online in the past, such as Australia and Middle East. See the  schedule  for event dates. We’ll have more information about region breakdowns and registration in a future update.

Regional Finals Structure

2018’s Regional Finals format was confusing to players and fans and we’ve attempted to simplify that. All Regional Finals will continue to have an open tournament where players can earn CPT Global Points as a way to qualify for Capcom Cup. However, the open tournament will no longer award CPT Ranking Points. There will still be a Regional Finals Top 8 awarding a qualifying spot to the player from that region.

Asia, Europe, LATAM will award the same points values as a Premier Event. NA Regional Finals is a Super Premier Event, and will award the appropriate points values.

Tournament Schedule

Below is a list of events for Capcom Pro Tour 2019. This is an in-progress schedule and we will update further once some event details are finalized. Please see each event’s website or social media accounts for up-to-date venue, registration, or any other additional information.
