First released in 2016, Capcom
's Street Fighter V
has had somewhat of an uphill battle when it comes to packing the experience with all of the right features. And fighters. And now with the what's being touted as the definitive edition, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition
, we sent our resident Ryu cosplayer Adam 'Griz' Mathew into the various fighting arenas/Japanese saunas of the world to find out if that's truly the case.
Here's a light-punch taste.
In my experience there are like four constants in life. Death, taxes, Ryu is gonna wear a headband, and Capcom will milk a numbered entry of a Street Fighter game years after release. The more convoluted the titling of said spin-off, the happier they seem to be.

This, fellow challengers, is where we find ourselves today, +4 years beyond the launch of Street Fighter V with a Champion Edition. Personally, I'm much more drawn to this update compared to the bastard upgrade children spawned by SFIV (i.e. Ultra, Super and Super Arcade Edition). Mostly because I need some closure. I just have to know if Capcom can (Heavy) punch this game into shape. It's no great secret that SFV at launch was about as bare-bones as Dhalsim and the netcode was Blanka levels of unstable.
