Street Fighter V Charlie Nash Reveal, Bison Tease, and Beta Program

Capcom just released their latest from the upcoming Street Fighter V for PS4 and PC: The reveal trailer for none other than Charlie Nash! While this is exciting news (that we knew was coming) for fans of Street Fighter Third Strike, the more important news was what followed.

Capcom will be offering a Beta Program for Street Fighter V, previously uncharted territory for the franchise. Players on both Playstation 4 and PC will be able to sign up online to register for the beta and (hopefully) have a shot at playing the game early. Capcom is undoubtedly looking to clear up balance and server issues prior to the launch of the Sony Console-exclusive title to make the launch as strong as possible.

While I’m not a huge fan of the whole ‘console exclusive’ title for the franchise, being that I love it and own an Xbox One, I appreciate the Beta Program they are rolling out. There were plenty of issues at launch for Street Fighter IV, primarily balance problems, which could have been weeded out by the fan base.

 

Street Fighter fans are easily some of the most dedicated players out there and sometimes having the pros come in to fiddle around for a while in-house just isn’t enough to find every way to break the game.

P.S.
If you stick around to the very end of the trailer (below) there's a sexy little M. Bison tease. Shadloo is probably behind the zombie-reincarnation of Charlie Nash. Just sayin'.
