Akuma was revealed today for Street Fighter V during PlayStation Experience 2016 as teased in a video a few weeks before.
The trailer showcased his signature moves followed by a beat down on protagonist Ryu.
Akuma made his debut in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a hidden boss. In the storyline of the Street Fighter games, he is the younger brother of Gouken, Ryu’s and Ken’s master.
His play style incorporates the trademark techniques of Ryu and Ken only notably stronger in comparison. Akuma has also been one of the characters with the lowest health and stun meter in most of the games he has appeared in.
