Street Fighter 5 launching Feb. 16 on PS4, Dhalsim confirmed for roster

Street Fighter 5 will be released Feb. 16 in the Americas and Europe, Capcom announced today during Sony's Paris Games Week press briefing.

Yoshinori Ono, the game's executive producer, presented a new trailer for the game starring Dhalsim, the yoga master who debuted in 1991's Street Fighter 2. Dhalsim is the 15th character to be revealed for Street Fighter 5, out of a total launch roster of 16.

Ono also announced that Capcom will release six add-on characters within the first year after Street Fighter 5 launches, and showed a teaser image featuring silhouettes of the fighters. As Capcom said earlier this year, players will be able to unlock all of the DLC characters for free just by playing — they'll earn an in-game currency called Fight Money while playing Street Fighter 5, and will be able to spend it on characters.

Capcom held a second beta test for Street Fighter 5 over the weekend, following a disastrous initial beta in July. The game is also coming to Windows PC, and that version is set for release next spring. For more on Dhalsim, check out the trailer above.
