Hey Ansatsuken followers!

As announced on-stage during the PlayStation Experience keynote, Akuma, the Master of the Fist, is the first Season 2 DLC character for Street Fighter V! Hit the jump to check him out in action!

A staple of the Street Fighter series ever since his secret appearance in Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Akuma is a savage, but well-honed Ansatsuken master consumed by the Satsui no Hado. Akuma represents the danger Ryu faces if he is unable to control the Satsui no Hado within him, and while Akuma appears to have some set of morals, he believes the highest form of battle is that in which participants put their lives on the line.

Akuma returns to Street Fighter V, displaying his mastery of Ansatsuken and while he has become burlier than previous games, he possesses quick footwork and devastating combos. He has a wide array of destructive tools and is able to completely out-class opponents with his oppressive pressure. His moves and stances often strike poses reminiscent of Buddhist statues and Ukiyo-e paintings.

How does Akuma feel about Ryu’s approach to overcoming the Satsui no Hado and what is his relationship to Necalli? Be sure to check out his character story to find out!


V-Skill: Rakan
Akuma strikes a defensive stance and similar to Ryu’s Mind’s Eye, can parry an incoming attack. He can follow-up the move with an upward kick or a long reaching palm strike.

V-Trigger: Dohatsu Shoten
Akuma powers up and envelops his body with ki to enter Dohatsu Shoten mode. In this mode, his Gohadokens are more powerful, now able to travel full-screen and he can unleash two in the air even while jumping backwards. Additionally, when he lands his Goshoryuken attack, he follows-up and violently drives his opponents into the ground.

Critical Art: Sekia Koretsuha
Akuma channels an incredible amount of ki into his palm and drives it into the ground, striking the opponent with an exploding pillar of fierce energy.

Critical Art: Shun Goku Satsu
Only accessible while in Dohatsu Shoten mode, Akuma’s most powerful attack returns. He glides towards the opponent and grabs them, resulting in a series of devastating strikes in the blink of an eye.

    That may not be Akuma we all know ... two reasons:

    1. Asura's statue in the background might refer to the battle in Asura's Wrath.

    But didn't that battle end up being Oni vs Asura, not Akuma?

    2. The kanji refers to being "god-like" as PVL mentioned points to Oni as well .. Since Oni means "Devil"

    It is pretty much confirmed he will either be Shin Akuma/Oni or will become him in VT.

    Shin Akuma is gonna be awesome because it makes you wonder what his V-trigger and V-skill will be once they're implemented, does he become Oni (isn't Oni the final form of Akuma from completely being taken over using the satsui no hadou etc..) or gains some of his move sets or even gaining one of his super combo moves ?......either way i don't care i'm just glad he's coming to the game.......SHUNGOKUSATSU !!!!!

    I would be more careful with these statements... it still looks like Oni's kanji.

    Look at the teaser again, when he's showing his back to us. There's dangly red bits on the top left of the screen by his shoulder.

    Given he's most likely looking back to us facing to the right, that might be a ponytail he's rocking. He had two alts in SFIV with it, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I don't play this turd but I care enough about SF to need him to:

    1- Not have white hair and a skirt as it breaks SF3 continuity (Bison shotgunned this go away!)
    2- Not be Oni as it breaks SF3 continuity.
    3- Be far less of a shoto by adopting some of Oni's moves and then some.
    4- Actually try to be interesting and different because we already have the boss supreme, Urien's swag, Necalli's VT and Nash's edginess.

    That is all. Congratulation to his playerbase. I'm happy you're happy. Surely we can work something out. No hard feelings about stealing your Ryu Final ending, after all you stole pretty much everything.

    x-posting from a Reddit thread I made earlier:

    http://imgur.com/a/ef0Fe

    Make sure to increase your screen brightness until you can see everything clearly.

    1. In the upper left hand corner, just above Akuma's left shoulder, notice what appears to be strands of red hair. They've changed his look; probably grew his hair out.

    2. The rope handwraps and belt + clearly black gi + red hair + distinctive voice = regular Akuma, not Shin Akuma (or Evil Ryu), despite the different kanji on his back. Shin Akuma has white hair and a purple gi.

    No word obviously on whether his V-trigger will be Shin Akuma or anything of the sort, but this is clearly not Shin Akuma that we're seeing in the teaser.

    Thoughts?

    Need to take Tokido with a grain of salt. Tokido isn't really a character loyalist as he is a "tier whore" who prefers strong characters that aren't too complex. He only really stuck with Akuma in the IV series where he was consistently top/high tier. Remember that he used Chun Li in 3rd Strike and Claw in Super Turbo. If Akuma isn't stronger than Ryu in this game, I don't see him maining him long term.

    Well you have the opposite issue in ST where Akuma is too good to use.


    Yeah he just picks what is cheap, but he definitely has a bias towards shotos and whichever shoto is highest tier. He didn't hop on the Chun Li or Cammy train even though you could argue they are both cheaper than Ryu. You could argue Cammy to be even easier to use than Ryu.

    If Akuma proves to be high/top tier he's staying because Akuma is his favorite character and he's mentioned he likes how versatile his move set is for a shoto. Even if other top tiers arise he will stick with Akuma as long as high to top tier because he just fits his style. It's only if Akuma really starts crapping up will he switch.

    Japan was calling Ryu top tier early on though, which also likely influenced his decision.

    Only 2 is correct.

    all the other points are as Lord Bipson would say MEANINGLESS.

    CvS2's too tiers after stuff like Roll Cancels had been discovered and A-Groove had been optimized was Bison, Sakura, Vega, Blanka.
