Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Team Versus Mode Detailed; New Video Showcases Gameplay and Menu Options

Capcom officially announced Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition a couple of months ago, and the highlight of the reveal was the brand new Team Versus game mode. Now, we finally got to see a lot of new details regarding the mode.

Youtube channel UpUpDownDown featured a preview of the new game mode, accompanied by a number of WWE superstars for entertainment purposes. During the preview and the brief moments we got to see what was going on on the screen, we got a glimpse of how customizable the rules are for the Team Versus mode. Here are almost all the options you can change:

  • No. of Team Members – You can have a team of up to five members. Each team must have an equal number of players.
  • Match Format – Choose between Elimination and Best of Series
    • Elimination – The winner stays on as the teams fight to the last man standing.
    • Best of Series – Each team member will match up against their corresponding opponent until one team wins the majority of the matches. If the number of battles won by each team is even, the result will be a draw. Draws can only occur in teams of two or four.
  • Vitality Recover – Choose how much vitality the winner recovers after each round. You can opt for Partial (recover green health and some gray health), Partial Green (recover actual health), or Full Recovery.
  • Retain EX Gauge – Allows whether the winner will be allowed to carry over their EX Gauge into the next round.
  • V-Gauge Advantage – In Elimination, determine whether the losing team will be given V-Gauge in the next round. Two bars will be given for a difference of two fighters, and three for a difference of three or more.
  • Change Order – The losing team can change their character order before the next fight. Selecting random will randomize the order, including who goes first.
  • Throwaway Matches – In Best of Series, choose whether to play all the battles even if the winner has already been decided.
  • Round Setting – Adjust the number of rounds required to win a game.
  • Match Time Settings – Set the time limit for a round.
  • CPU Difficulty – If playing against the CPU, determine their difficulty.
