The new challengers are old favourites Cammy and Birdie.

Following the confirmation that Cammy and Birdie are returning to the roster for Street Fighter 5, Sony has released some gameplay footage that shows the pair in action.

Cammy’s character design hasn’t really changed since her Super Street Fighter 2 debut over two decades ago, but this is a somewhat more rotund Birdie than we’re used to seeing. The gameplay trailer includes some classic signature moves like Cammy’s Spiral Arrow.

PS4 players can sign up right now for Phase 1 of the Street Fighter 5 public Beta that begins July 23, though PC players will have to be patient for a while yet. The game is due to launch in 2016.
