It was revealed during the Capcom Cup 2014 that Charlie Nash, who originally appeared in Street Fighter Alpha, will be making a return in the upcoming game, Street Fighter V. Producer Yoshinori Ono appeared on stage dressed as Charlie to discuss the game. He said:
We’ve been hard at work at Street Fighter 5, and we promise this product will be the one that brings fighting games into the next era. This will be a huge step for us and our community.
Street Fighter V is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 4 and PC. The developer has recently reiterated that the title will not be free-to-play.
