Capcom has just released the December update, which includes a new fighter, Gill, and a new stage, and gameplay features. They also announced that when the Champion Edition launches on February 14, 2020, Seth the boss character from Street Fighter IV will take on a new form and join the roster.
The Street Fighter™ series has always featured memorable bosses, and Seth’s iconic role in Street Fighter IV was no different. After Seth’s demise in that past appearance, part of the intelligence survived and the remnants of the biological brain have been paired with a new physical form in Champion Edition. Always seeking new data from the fiercest fighters in the world, Seth has the ability to steal moves and use them against an opponent. That means players who go up against Seth should plan accordingly and expect to get a taste of their own medicine.
Gill makes his angelic return and is now ready to bless Champion Edition players with his presence. The leader of the Secret Society and the end boss of the Street Fighter™ III series, Gill brings his elemental balance to the game as he is armed with a wide variety of fire and ice attack options. Gill has been added to the Street Fighter V: Champion Edition roster and can be acquired separately for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. Gill’s home base, the “Sun Chase Moon” stage, is also available today for MSRP $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money.
As part of the December update , all new V-Skills have been added to every character in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition. These new abilities provide added depth to the gameplay system and open up a variety of new strategies. Additionally, a new battle balance update is available and offers general game improvements and character-specific updates. These new gameplay additions are available today as a free download for all players.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is rated “T for Teen” and will be available physically and digitally on PlayStation®4 and as a digital download on Steam for MSRP $29.99 beginning on February 14, 2020. Current owners of any version of Street Fighter V can purchase a MSRP $24.99 Upgrade Kit, which offers instant access to all unowned Champion Edition content as it becomes available leading up to the February 14 release.
