Akuma Coming To Street Fighter V

Akuma Street Fighter V

Capcom has confirmed that The Raging Demon, Akuma will be coming to Street Fighter V and will be playable at the PlayStation Experience in December.

Ever since Capcom released Street Fighter V earlier this year fans have been eager to see if Akuma would be making a return to the franchise. Seeing as the character has a cameo appearance in Tekken 7, it would make sense for the Raging Demon to make a full appearance in the latest Street Fighter game.

Ever since the teaser trailer for Akuma in Street Fighter V was released, fans have been making some pretty solid theories of how the character will appear in the game. For example the teaser announcement for the PlayStation Experience in December depicts a symbol on Akuma’s back. Fans have been theorising that this symbol is the same Symbol ‘Shin Akuma’ has in Capcom Vs SNK 2, See below.

This could be a possible hint to Akuma’s V-Trigger special move is Street Fighter V which may see him draw deeper from has dark Hado powers and turn into his demon form ‘Shin Akuma’

More information on this teaser will hopefully be revealed when fans get their hands on him at The PlayStation Experience, which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Centre from the 3rd to the 4th of December.
