Akuma will soon join the Street Fighter V roster

Akuma, the evil demon fighter who has long been a mainstay of the Street Fighter series, will soon be coming to Street Fighter V according to developer Capcom.

Capcom teased Akuma’s upcoming Street Fighter V arrival during last weekend’s Red Bull Battlegrounds Capcom Pro Tour with a short video clip which shows both Akuma himself and what appears to be a new stage for the game. While the teaser doesn’t technically reveal Akuma in full, it seems pretty obvious whose back it is viewers can see near the end of the teaser.

The teaser also reveals that Street Fighter V’s version of Akuma will be playable during the upcoming PlayStation Experience event which is set to be held from December 3-4 in Anaheim, California. Akuma will also be featured in Bandai Namco’s upcoming title Tekken 7, which means that 2017 is already shaping up to be a strong year for the iconic master of the dark Haddoken.
