UPDATE – The extended Street Fighter V gameplay trailer and stage demo have been added below.

After an incredibly exciting tournament, Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono took the stage at Capcom Cup 2014 to discuss Street Fighter V.

During the presentation, the developers showed off a brand new gameplay trailer for the upcoming title, which took much from the previous teaser while adding some new bits here and there.

But the big reveal came near the end, where they provided a brief glimpse of Charlie.

Ono spoke of each character being more unique than they ever have before, hinting at character-specific techniques that will set them apart from each other.

Also, as part of their partnership with Sony, Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup will return next year, with one major change: a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000. Yep, half a million dollars. Let’s go.

Afterwards, Capcom’s Peter “Combofiend” Rosas and Twitch’s Mike Ross took the stage to provide a quick demo of the game in action. While still very early in development, there’s some great footage here, so be sure to check out the archive below.
