Back in 2020, GameStop Canada came forward on Twitter to post news that the Championship Edition of the game will be making its way on the Nintendo Switch. Adding to this, they also stated that pre-orders are also available. However, later they posted on the same platform to rectify this error and cleared out that the announcement was meant for the PlayStation 4 release of the game and not Switch. This chain of events occurred in January 2020 and since then, no significant step seems to be taken for the Nintendo Switch release of Street Fighter 5.
We posted a tweet advertising Street Fighter V: Champion Edition for the Nintendo Switch earlier this evening. Please note that the details in this tweet were inaccurate, and were posted in error. The intention for the tweet was to highlight the PlayStation 4 version of the game.
