One of the big changes coming to Street Fighter next year is a second batch of V-Trigger moves. On Monday, Capcom offered a taste of what those would look like.

Street Fighter V has become an increasing mental game of chess, with the addition of its Season 2 characters. Recognizing key matchups is more critical than ever, but the formula is about to get even more varied with the arrival of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

As noted during Arcade Edition's initial October announcement, the existing roster is going to get a whole new slew of V-Trigger moves. To offer an idea of what's coming, Capcom released a teaser video revealing some of these new maneuvers. Some of them will extend combos, other will hit for harder knockdowns, and others can even be chained into juggles.

PlayStation Experience attendees will be the first to go hands-on with these new V-Trigger additions. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will introduce these new moves, along with Arcade Mode and Extra Battle Mode. It's set to release on January 16 for $39.99, though current Street Fighter V owners will get all of the new gameplay changes and new game modes as a free update.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
