Update: We've added a five minute Zangief highlight by Combofiend. You can view it after the jump.

Earlier: Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas did a few character demos for IGN, showcasing Dhalsim and Rashid in Street Fighter 5, along with getting up some new match footage.

Some Dhalsim players haven't been thrilled with the character so far in Street Fighter 5, but Rosas steps in to showcase some new tricks of the trade, like how Sim can duck under fireballs with a well timed standing heavy punch, and the fact that move must be blocked low now.

Also, Rosas states that Dhalsim's buttons control the horizontal area, instead of his fireball that used to travel straight across the screen, but if you want to get a projectile into that space now, it requires using an EX move.

You can find Peter's Dhalsim and Rashid's walkthroughs below, along with some additional match footage.
