Our first good look at Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition is closer than you might think.

The official Street Fighter Twitter account sent out a tweet this morning to let fans know that the game will be streamed next week. Capcom Unity will be running the show on Monday, December 4th, and we can expect to see the broadcast kick off at 3 p.m. PST / 6 p.m. EST.

According to the tweet, Capcom is gearing up to provide a detailed look at the game's Arcade Mode.

The long-awaited single player game mode will offer fans a run through of Street Fighter's long and legendary history. There will be different paths to take that have themes connected to the main games in the franchise (Street Fighter 1, Street Fighter 1, the Alpha series, etc.),

Each path you play will put you up against opponents that made an appearance in the particular title of choice. for example, if you choose to play the Street Fighter 2 section, you will only battle against the eight World Warriors.

Arcade Mode will also feature special, comic book panel-style endings for each character. Capcom has stated in previously that there will be over 100 endings in the game.

If that isn't enough incentive to want to play through Arcade Mode, there will also be a monthly ranking system feature built in. This will allow players to earn points as they play, and the highest ranked player from every arcade ladder each month will earn a special in-game title.

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition will be a fairly large overhaul to the current version of the game. We will be seeing a more stylish user interface implemented, with menus, the character select screen, and more being altered.

The upgrade will also add new game modes, such as Arcade Mode and Extra Battle -- a mode that pits players against unique enemies and allows them to earn special alternate costumes.

But perhaps the most exciting difference we'll see in Arcade Edition is the addition of a second V-Trigger for every character on the roster. Each fighter will receive an alternate Trigger, giving them new techniques in battle.

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition is set for release on January 16th, 2018.
