Capcom has finally confirmed the presence of Charlie Nash in Street Fighter 5, with Guile's good friend starring in an all new trailer for the arcade and PlayStation 4 brawler.

Charlie's inclusion in the game has been an open secret for a while, with the soldier - who skipped Street Fighter 4 and was last seen in Street Fighter Alpha 3 - teased in a video at last year's Capcom Cup.

The new trailer allows us another look at Street Fighter 5, with Ryu and Chun-Li joining the newly announced fighter for some quick-fire scraps. There's also the briefest tease of another addition to the roster, with series stalwart M. Bison - or Vega, if you really must - flashing in outline towards the end of the video.

In other Street Fighter 5 news, North American players who pre-order the game will automatically be enrolled in its online beta. Capcom described this as "the largest and most ambitious online beta program in franchise history."

Street Fighter 5 was revealed last December, and is slated for release on PC and PS4 - with PS4 being "the only console this game ever appears on", according to Sony. Our last look at the game in action came earlier this month.
