Street Fighter 5: Type Arcade adds new Boss Rush Mode

It'd be fun and frustrating to see that in the home version too

Street Fighter 5: Type Arcade finally released over a year ago after being a missing component in Capcom's flagship fighting game for quite some time, and now it seems to be receiving its own unique mode.

Capcom announced Type Arcade will be seeing its update to Version 2.30 today which will add in a new Boss Rush Mode for a limited amount of time.

The content included with the Boss Rush Mode appears to be pretty much all be re-packaging from the console version of SF5 by using the super-powered NPC characters found in Extra Battle and Arcade modes.

Shadow Nash, Shin Akuma, Necalli, The Gief, The Master Ryu, Shadow Lady Chun-Li, spirit M. Bison and Gill are all represented in Boss Rush though there are some added features to running this difficult gauntlet.

Boss Rush features a player life system which will allow players to have three attempts to defeat all of the boss fighters during a particular run in these one-round matches.

These lives do not refill, however, so players will need to be careful not to use them all up too quickly.

As for what you can win for completing the new mode, players can earn special Boss Rush titles for defeating all of the crazy fighters, setting a new high score or reaching a certain point in the run which actually looks pretty cool compared to most others in SF5.

This is apparently a limited-time promotion for Type Arcade, as Boss Rush is only scheduled to last from today, June 24, until July 8, so there's only a few weeks to pick up the titles.

Rumblings about a Boss Rush mode in SF5 have been floating around for years, so perhaps we'll get to see this in Champion Editon at some point with more content on the horizon for the game's final season.
