There’s new content coming to Street Fighter 5’s upcoming Arcade Edition update, and to accompany that announcement, here’s a video of some large men yelling a lot (and playing it, of course).

In Team Versus mode, which launches alongside the January 16 Arcade Edition update, players can form teams of up to five members each and fight against each other. The teams can then face of against each other in a series of one on one battles, until eventually a winning team is decided upon.

You can tweak the rules – and choose between elimination and best-of rules – before the fighting starts, and while the character you choose is set in stone you can change your V-Trigger as each match begins.

Below, we’ve got a bunch of WWE wrestlers (including the dudes from New Day and AJ Styles) showing off the new mode. They’re…quite boisterous.

It looks like fun, right? Even though their Street Fighter 5 skills vary somewhat.

You’ll also be able to play with the CPU, meaning you can set up a five on five tournament and control all five of the characters, if you’re so inclined, which might be a good way to learn a lot of characters at once.

The main addition to this new update is, of course, Arcade Mode itself, but Team Versus looks like a great addition for your multiplayer games nights. The update will be free for existing Street Fighter 5 owners, although anyone new to the game can also buy a complete edition on disc.
