So, it has finally been announced: Dhalsim is one of the returning SFII characters in SFV. He, however, seems to have changed quite a bit. Here, watch the video and see for yourself:

    Finally a Sleep Fighter lame ass zoner. Too many mid range and yolo characters so far. He will definitely test the viability of zoning. Whitr chip medium and heavy pokes here we come.

    His V Trigger looks very interesting. Like a big flame carpet. Doesn't seem to have a hit box but must put some type of effect on the opponent. His anime style fireball into teleport stuff seems intact. Like the new design also.

    Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    Can someone explain to me the white eyes? I thought they meant either evilness like Bison's eyes are white for example.

    There isn't an official definition. Sagat also has a white eye. Bison's eyes glow though, and that's evilness.

    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    They even changed his painting/tattoos. I think the third eye spot is new and having it on the body at all.

    I'll wait for some more suggestions and then change it. If you think it should be changed ASAP, then you can change it to your will.

    Yeah, I was just gonna mention the body art. The attention to detail is off the hook with this character!

    V-trigger only causes recoverable health damage. Does it at least cause blockstun/hitstun? At first I thought it's supposed to shut down part of the stage for some time and help with zoning. Or maybe it's at least unblockable or unavoidable damage so if you choose to rush down dhalsim you're risking a lot of health potentially.

    Dhalsim looks like a BEAST in this game. He has so many weapons now, and his zoning seems to have improved tremendously, as well as his defensive options.

    That would be the best thing ever in a fighting game! I don't think it puts you on block or hitstun, but gradually lowers your health. Akin to Gen's countdown Super in A3.

    I don't get this.

    As @DevilJin 01 has stated, some of us like basic characters who don't have to rely on any fancy new tricks to win, just good buttons - which is interestingly what Cammy and Chun are.

    I basically see bearded Ryu and sexy outfit Chun Li as their true new looks. The default is just to keep something familiar for the fans.

    Sim's design is fantastic. I think he will be more aggressive this time around.

    I was talking about appearance, all the returning characters changed and aged,

    My issue with Chun was they showed a completly different character at first then reverted her,

    His redesign reminds me of Daiba, from Berserk. Which is a great thing.

    But then again, I think most, if not all, Indians look very similar.

    They actually showed you a completely different game at first, then they changed it.

    Insightful and racist at the same time.. What to do?

    Whatever, I'm hype about Dhalsim.

    Great redesign for Dhalsim.

    Everything about him is refreshing. Capcom got the V-Skill and V-Trigger right with this one.

    Yoga Dormammu? I approve.

    I actually really like Dhalsim's gameplay design this time around, and I NEVER expected to hear myself say that ever. He's got some fancy new projectiles that make me think back to Justice in Guilty Gear XX, and a floor control move akin to Sub Zero's ground freeze(but..you know, on fire!). Definitely some refreshing things going on here with Sim.

    Got nothing to do with characters not having good buttons or keeping characters basic.
    It's about putting in a bit of thought and effort into your character designs and clearly in sf5 some characters have had a lot more thought and effort put into there designs than others.

    Funny how you think having anything new is a fancy trick, some of us like new stuff it keeps us interested hence why alot of people like birdie nash bison and now dhalsim lets not forget how long some of us have been playing this series, 24 years some of us have been playing there comes a point were something is no longer "classic" "iconic" and it just becomes same old same old, and ryu cammy and chunners even gief fall into this, it's not a case of i want gief to be GGXX eddie but a couple of new command grabs wouldn't have gone amiss and so on

    And even in extreme cases where a character is almost completely different from one game to the next say like kof 98 kensou to kof 99 kensou there's nothing to say you wont enjoy the new kensou, there's nothing to say a well designed new thought out ryu wouldn't be as fundamental based as old ryu or as basic
