The Street Fighter V: Champion Edition Left Nintendo Switch Fans Furious
Yoshinori Ono, who is the producer of Street Fighter, said that, right now, a version of Street Fighter V for Switch does not exist. Street Fighter V fans are disappointed and sad. They were hoping for a portable version of the game. But those of own a PS4 could not be happier since they are getting this version soon.
Neither Capcom nor Nintendo talked about any plans for a Street Fighter V port to the Nintendo Switch. This means that the EB Games Canada post was completely random, and gave hope to a lot of players that are now sad, especially by saying that the game will be available for pre-order soon. If it were true, then this would have shown the very first time the game meets the console.
Capcom announced the Street Fighter V: Champion Edition game, stating that it will hit the market on the 14th of February, 2020. The game will come with Gill as a playable fighter once again.
