Because Arcade Edition was already taken I suppose

We previously learned that Street Fighter 5 would be making its way to the arcades in 2019 back in September and has even already had its first location test, but now we know even more concrete details about Capcom's return to its once native territory.

This new arcade port of the game will be officially titled 'Street Fighter 5: Type Arcade', and another location test is coming to Japanese arcades with expanded features for players to get their hands on a bit early.

Street Fighter 5: Type Arcade's user interface will also be altered compared to its home console version which we saw in the previous location test and in new screenshots of the game that you can see below.

Battle Points or BP appear to be returning for the arcade ranking system instead of the current League Point system of the PlayStation 4 and PC versions though they look to possibly work the same way. Rankings, player names, titles and BP are all displayed above character health bars instead of below like the one's we're more familiar with now though silver and gold rankings are still present here.

A USB port can also be found on the arcade cabinet which allows players to plug in and bring their own controllers from home though only a few are confirmed to work with the game at this time including the Razer Panthera fight stick, the Hori Real Arcade Pro sticks and the Mad Catz FightPad Pro.

The second location test is set to take place from November 30 through December 1 in Sendai, Tokyo, Kyoto and Fukuoka, Japan. Nesica cards will be usable for this test unlike the first one, but progress made on them will not carry over to the full release in 2019.
