Street Fighter V Arcade Edition information leaked via Amazon

Although Capcom hasn't made any official announcement, it appears that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is the new retail version of the game many have suggested is necessary in order to lay to rest the mistakes of the game's launch.

Since Street Fighter 5 launch in February 2016, players have been repeatedly asking if and when Capcom would consider the addition of a true arcade mode. There will also be a new mode that rewards exclusive costumes through the completion of timed challenges.

Arcade Edition will pack in a whole new user-interface, alongside an Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, whole new V-trigger moves, a Gallery, and all of the Season 1 and 2 DLC characters. In an effort to add "more variety" to each match, the company continued, it'll be adding a second V-trigger to each fighter, chosen before the start of a match.

"In Extra Battle Mode, a new series of time exclusive challenges will be available for players to use their Fight Money for the chance to receive an exclusive premium outfit each month".

If the listing is to be believed, this new edition of the game will be free for all current Street Fighter V players and is expected to release on January 16, 2018. It'll take you a good number of hours over a good number of days, but it's possible to grind for the DLC.

The Arcade Mode will allow players to choose six different paths in it, and each will have their own unique endings. Over time, Capcom has added everything from new characters to a comprehensive story mode to the game.

Capcom announced that the initial version of the game will be the only one players need to purchase.
