Nintendo nor Capcom has mentioned any plans for a Street Fighter V port to the Nintendo Switch as of yet, so if this post from EB Games Canada proves true, it’ll mark the first time the game has landed on the console in any form.
According to EB Games Canada, the game should also be available for pre-order now in stores. Last we heard, when Capcom announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, it said the game would release on February 14, 2020, and will bring Gill back as a playable fighter.
Capcom confirmed that Champion Edition will feature 40 characters, 34 stages, more than 200 costumes, and pretty much everything Street Fighter V has released, minus the Fighting Chance and brand collaboration outfits, and Capcom Pro Tour DLC. Anything released between January 10 and February 14 also won’t be in Champion Edition.
It wouldn’t be the first time that a Canadian retailer was responsible for a significant leak. Back in 2018, Walmart Canada was responsible for accidentally leaking the existence of a whole slew of highly anticipated games before E3 2018. You can also read about the most infamous game leaks ever.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will be out on February 14, so happy Valentine’s Day. Watch out for that netcode, though, which has been a sore point of contention for Street Fighter V fans, and something that an independent modder appeared to fix on his own recently.
