'Version Select' option spotted in the training mode of Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition

In case you miss Season 2 Ryu...

Somebody has already acquired a copy of Street Fighter 5 Arcade edition before its release date. This means that there is the potential to learn about some unannounced stuff.

One feature we learned about earlier today was the fact that there is an option to have characters colored based on frame data while in the training mode. If your fighter is at a disadvantage after making contact, they'll be colored red. Blue will represent positive frames over your opponent.

Something else has been spotted while in the training mode's option. There is a suspicious option called "Version Select" present.

Interestingly enough, this was something that X-Kira reported on with his data mining some time ago. The video that went up certainly supports this claim.

The description of this option says "return to Version Select and restart the battle." Still, there was no option to select a version as the player went into the training mode (at least that I saw while watching the video).

We don't know for sure if there will be different versions available for the game's main versus mode. It's possible this option is actually referring to the V-Triggers in the game (every fighter will have two after January 16th).
