Capcom just announced Dhalsim as a playable character for Street Fighter 5 - and he wears a beard.

During Sony's Paris Games Week media briefing, Capcom unveiled a trailer showing yoga master Dhalsim in action.

Meanwhile, six additional characters will be released during Street Fighter 5's first year, bringing the total roster up to 22 characters by the beginning of 2017.

Capcom said on average, it will release one new character every two months.

Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono took to the stage to announce Street Fighter 5 will be released 16th February 2016 in Europe.
