« Street Fighter V coming to Japanese arcades in 2019 »

Although the newest version of Street Fighter V is subtitled Arcade Edition, the game will only finally be making its debut in Japanese arcades next year.

Capcom released the information at the end of the Street Fighter V event at Tokyo Game Show 2018 with a short video, which not only showed off the game on a Taito Vewlix cabinet but also made sure to reveal that there will be USB ports for players to hook up their own pad or stick.

No more concrete information on the game's release is available at this time, but according to Eventhubs it will be based on the current console version and tests of the game will begin "the weekend of October 5th to October 7th in five locations — Taito Station Shinjuku South, Plaza Capcom Kichijouji, Nagoya Leisure Land, Sega Namba Avion Osaka and Round One Fukuoka."

With Japanese arcades getting the game, it would also stand to reason that the many Round One locations in the U.S. will be getting it as well, but for now nothing is assured.
