Capcom revealed the released date, a new fighter & post launch details for their upcoming fighting game, Street Fighter V.

The famous fighter, Dhalsim has been confirmed for the game, check out the reveal trailer:

Dhalsim joins the 15 of the 16 confirmed launch fighters, that include Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli, R. Mika, Rashid, Karin, Zangief, and Laura.

The return of Dhalsim in Street Fighter V marks the addition of the first true zoning character to join the initial roster. Using his long range limbs and slow projectiles to frustrate overly offensive opponents, Dhalsim’s style has historically been keep-away since his inception in Street Fighter II.

Although he’s a pacifist, Dhalsim steps into battle when it comes to saving others. From raising money for the poor to destroying dams that are forcefully keeping water from his village, Dhalsim takes up arms if the good outweighs the harm he can cause.

In Street Fighter V, Dhalsim once again joins the fray to help those in need. Not one to slack on his Yoga training, Dhalsim has mastered a few new Yoga skills for this upcoming battle, those being his V-Skill – Yoga Float and his V-Trigger – Yoga Burner.

V-Skill: Yoga Float

Upon activation Dhalsim hops into the air and floats for a few seconds. During this time, all airborne attacks and specials are accessible. This can also be activated in the air.

V-Trigger: Yoga Burner

Dhalsim shoots out a stream of flames that stays on the screen on the floor for an extended period of time. If the opponent stands in the flames, they will slowly lose life in the form of recoverable damage. Once they step out of the flames, their life will begin to recover.

Post Launch Plans:

“Over the course of 2016, six new characters will be added to the title, bringing the total roster from 16 at launch to 22 by the end of 2016.
