In addition, Capcom also announced a couple of new costumes that will be coming to the game. Hit the jump to see the changes and costumes.

So apparently the highly-anticipated Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection was going to to come out without with training and versus mode. It was almost released in a state where you could only play the arcade part for 8 of the twelve games.
Here is the direct quote from Capcom;
“After the initial announcement, we saw lots of fan feedback hoping for Versus and Training Modes, even if the collection is focused on the arcade versions. It’s because of this feedback that these modes have been added to the game. Since this is a brand new feature, Versus and Training Mode will be available as a day one patch on May 29. You must connect to the internet and download the patch in order to enable them.”
Now, I am no game developer in any way, shape, or form, but how does making the game ‘arcade perfect’ prevent them from putting in these basic modes?
Before this announcement, Capcom was about to sell a fighting game collection where you couldn’t play local versus mode against another player.
How could a company as big as Capcom think customers would not want to PLAY AGAINST OTHER PLAYERS IN A FIGHTING GAME. Thats like thinking people who play basketball wouldn’t want another team to play against.
Luckily, Capcom decided against it and implemented standard modes that all modern fighting games should have after “lots of fan feedback”. Yes Capcom, we want to be able to fight other players in a fighting game.
The 3rd DLC character in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Falke, will be available to play on April 24th.
Heavily experimented on during her time at Shadaloo, Falke was forced to endlessly practice her unique use of Psycho Power.
Almost brought to the point of break, Ed eventually rescues her and they both escape from Shadaloo.
Much like Ed, Falke will have special moves that require only two buttons to be pressed instead of the normal motion input.
