Street Fighter V: Champion Edition for the PS4 finally has an India price and release date if you plan on buying it on disc. According to a listing spotted on specialist retailer Games The Shop, the Street Fighter V: Champion Edition physical edition India price is Rs. 2,499 with a release date of February 14. The PS4 and PC digital variants of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition were available for pre-order a month ago for Rs. 2,081 and Rs. 2,199 respectively. Like the PS Store and Steam editions, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition at retail has a February 14, 2020 release date.
At the moment there’s no confirmation from Capcom or Games The Shop regarding the presence of all content of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition being on disc. If it’s anything like past releases, such as Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, this will not be the case. While sites like Amazon US have pre-order bonuses for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition such as new costume colours for each character, there’s no such offer for Indian customers at retail just yet. That said, we’ve reached out to Capcom for comment and will update this story if we hear from the company.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition features – what’s new
- Includes all content (excluding fighting chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes, and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition would mark the first release of Street Fighter V in India after its initial launch back in 2016. With the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition skipping the country, it will be interesting to see the reception this variant gets in a country brimming with Mortal Kombat and Tekken fans.
