After watching the character reveal trailer, we here at Game Rampage are excited to see Dhalsim make an appearance as you should be too.
So without further adu , here's why you should be excited for Dhalsim in Street Fighter V.
Dhalsim's old tricks from previous games return, but the real pleasure was seeing Dhalsim in action with a few new tricks. Dhalsim's ability to teleport stall and arc his Yoga Fire attack are welcomed editions to a character who required much needed changes from his Street Fighter 4 iteration. However, the coolest and perhaps most useful ability is his V-trigger skill we will call Yoga Carpet.
Similar to Dormammu's attack from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Yoga Carpet engulfs the ground in front of you with flames creating even more ways to control space and trap your opponent.
Dhalsim is Street Fighter V's first true zoning character. While Dhalsim may not be an easy character to master, the reward of mentally defeating your by controlling space is a far greater experience than a win based upon mindless play.
Controlling your opponent and defeating them in their head and in the game is a feeling not easily forgotten. Although with much power , comes great responsibility as Dhalsim is not a character for new players as they may simply be frustrated by his weaknesses.
Sporting a turban and a beautiful white beard, Dhalsim has never looked better. Jokes aside, the way a character looks may impact your decision to play the character. The implementation of daily challenges will allow more players to play Dhalsim, making it easier to learn the match-up with your character of choice.
