Street Fighter 5 Arcade Mode allegedly coming in January according to findings of data miner X-Kira

We're so ready to smash some cars and break some barrels

Miyuki "X-Kira" Chan has revealed some of his recent data mining via Facebook, and it seems as though a Street Fighter 5 Arcade Mode may be just a few months away.

This is, of course, unofficial, but X-Kira's consistency in discovering and predicting future content makes us feel like this is more than just a wild guess.

In fact, last month the Brazilian miner claimed there would be new costumes for M. Bison, Karin, Guile and Ibuki, and sure enough we we got word just yesterday that said costumes are officially on the way to the game.

The Street Fighter community has been begging for an Arcade Mode since day one of SF5, sometimes going as far as to claim that a fighting game is not complete without the traditional AI ladder.

January does make sense for such a major change, as it will be right after the end of the current Capcom Pro Tour season.
