Street Fighter V: Champion Edition adds move-stealing Seth with new look

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, now available for the PlayStation 4 and PC, adds the move-stealing Seth to the roster but with a new look.

Capcom released Street Fighter V: Champion Edition as the definitive Street Fighter V experience, as it includes all 40 characters, 34 stages, and more than 200 costumes. In addition to the arrival of Seth, the boss character of Street Fighter IV, the new edition also adds Gill, the boss character of Street Fighter III, and his Sun Chase Moon stage. Also included is V-Skill II, which Capcom claims will add more options and depth to combat, and a new balance update.

Players who already own Street Fighter V may buy the Upgrade Kit to acquire all the bonuses offered by the game’s latest edition, which basically rounds up most of the four seasons of content that was released since the initial 2016 release.

A PlayStation Blog post on Street Fighter V: Champion Edition highlights Seth, who arrives to the game with a different look. Seth’s consciousness has taken over the body of Doll Unit Zero, and along with the new look comes a new set of moves that includes Hecatoncheires, where Seth attacks with a barrage of punches, and Cruel Disaster, where Seth gracefully spins into a powerful kick.

Seth is known for copying moves, and this continues in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition with the V-Skill I Tanden Engine that draws in opponents and the Tanden Install follow-up that absorbs their data.

Takayuki Nakayama, the chief director of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, also shared some behind-the-scenes images on the development of Seth’s new look. The different planned looks for Seth are interesting to see, as there is even one that is steampunk-inspired, with Capcom combining designs to come up with the final look.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition carries a $30 price tag as a standalone game for the PlayStation 4 and PC. For players who already own Street Fighter V, the Upgrade Kit will cost $25.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is one of the best PlayStation 4 console exclusives, and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will do nothing but further cement the game’s status.

PlayStation Plus Essential's February game lineup was announced today, and it consists of four titles: OlliOlli World, Evil Dead: The Game, Mafia: Definitive Edition, and Destiny 2: Beyond Light. These games will be available to download starting February 7. Overall, this is a really solid batch of games.

OlliOlli World was one of my personal favorite games of 2022 because of its amazing level design and 2D skateboarding gameplay that only becomes more fun as you get better with the game. "Like the best games of the genre, it knows that easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master mechanics, rewarding obstacles, and high speeds that test one’s reaction time are the hallmarks of a great platformer," I wrote in a four-and-a-half star review of the game last February.

Move over Zelda: Tchia is officially my most anticipated game of 2023
Tchia glides through the air.

There are many big-budget games to look forward to in 2023, like Starfield, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. But after going hands-on with a much smaller indie title, I have a new most anticipated title of 2023. The game in question is Tchia, a vibrant, cheerful, and free-flowing open-world game about a girl exploring a tropical archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.
Tchia - Commented Gameplay Walkthrough
Tchia first caught my attention in a hands-off preview of Kepler Interactive's Gamescom lineup last year, but it took me going hands-on to really understand the magic of Tchia. A freeing open-world game in the same vein as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Elden Ring, or Sable, Tchia lets players loose on beautiful islands in the Pacific and gives them tools to explore by climbing, gliding, possessing animals and objects, and sailing wherever they want. Its deep understanding and respect for the culture it represents enhance the experience too. If you're wondering what indie darling will wind up becoming this year's critically acclaimed game of the year dark horse, you'll want to keep an eye on Tchia.
What is Tchia? 
Tchia is an open-world game following a little girl (named Tchia) trying to find her missing father on an archipelago inspired by New Caledonia, a tropical archipelago in the Pacific Ocean where some of the game's developers are from. While players have the stamina to climb up buildings and trees, swing from them, and even swim, dive, and sail around these islands, they can also soul-jump into lots of different animals and objects. These each add even more gameplay gimmicks that enhance exploration and help Tchia solve puzzles.

I had the chance to play some main story missions during my preview where Tchia befriends a young girl and explores one of the game's biggest islands, completing various objectives and even hunting for treasure. The story was fairly light in what I played, but the gameplay really shined. Although I had some objectives, it was just as fun to climb up the trees near the starting town and fling Tchia into a glide to travel a longer distance.
I could then let go of that glide to do tricks in the air or soul-jump into an animal, allowing me to explore the world in a new way. Tchia makes exploration feel fantastic, as you'll immediately feel like you have all the tools to make this world your oyster.
Oh, and did I mention you can play the ukulele? Because Tchia features a fully playable ukulele.
At a couple of narrative beats during my preview, I encountered rhythm-game-like segments as Tchia performed specific songs, but I could also play the ukulele at any time while I was exploring if I wanted to. While you can play whatever you want, specific melodies have additional effects, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time style. The results of these tunes range from simply changing the time of day to giving Tchia a buff that allows her to breathe underwater infinitely.
