Capcom announced Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition this morning, and confirmed its relase date for January 16th.

The brief trailer for this upcoming new version of the game boasts of all Season 1 and 2 DLC characters being included, Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode and an in-game Gallery being added, as well as new V-Triggers.

The V-Triggers are confirmed to be a second one added to each character, and being chosen pre-match, similar to how you would select Supers in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike or Ultras in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

New V-Triggers are said to significantly alter the playstyle for each character. "You may need to relearn your main or perhaps try another character, which speaks to you in a different way due to their alternate abilities," according to today's Unity blog post.

As confirmed on Capcom-Unity, this will be a free update for anyone who already owns Street Fighter 5, although of course the DLC characters will not be added for free. The new disc can be bought for people who haven't taken the plunge yet for $39.99.

The update also boasts a brand new UI and color scheme for the game's menu portion.

Some images were shared over at Capcom-Unity and via Capcom's press site of how the game will look in this new update, which you can see here.
