Capcom announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition for PC and PlayStation 4. It will be the definitive collection of the content released thus far and will feature Gill who is making his return after Street Fighter III.
Champion Edition will contain pretty much everything released in Street Fighter V and the Arcade Edition so far. This means 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 cosmetic items will be present in this re-release of SFV. Furthermore, it will include all the content that is
The pricing is bound to rile up the existing owners of SFV as those who are starting from scratch can get the Champion Edition at the price of $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 while the existing owners will get only 17 per cent shaved off that price in the case of USD and EUR payments while UK accounts can purchase it at 20 per cent discount.

Champion Edition will become available on 14 February 2019 for PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam).
Gill is a returning character that will be available in Champion Edition from the get-go while those with other editions will be able to purchase the character the same way they acquired previous DLC fighters. He will cost $5.99 / £4.99 / €5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.
Meanwhile, after dozens of characters at launch and down the DLC road, we are still waiting for Crimson Viper to come back. Hopefully, she is the 40th one since Capcom announced that would be the number of characters in Champion Edition while the entire roster plus Gill make it only 39.
