Akuma will be making his way to Street Fighter V. At the conclusion of the Red Bull Battlegrounds tournament today, after developer Yoshinori Ono signed off with his signature “Shoryuken” crowd salute, a small teaser was released starring the particularly angry fighter.
As Game Informer reports, the teaser was brief – only showing a storm-ravaged temple, before cutting to the Akuma's iconic black gi, seen above.
No release date has been given for Akuma. While this news isn’t necessarily surprising, it will be interesting to see how he plays in the transition from Street Fighter IV to V.
Are there any characters left that you’d like to see in Street Fighter V? Skullomania, anyone?
