Akuma Is Coming to Street Fighter V, Skies of Honor Stage Arrives Tomorrow

November 7, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

During the Red Bull Battlegrounds North American Regional Finals, the above teaser trailer was released, revealing that Akuma is coming to Street Fighter V. There’s no release date for Akuma yet, but he’ll be playable next month at PlayStation Experience 2016 on December 3 and 4.

As Game Informer notes, the symbol on Akuma’s back in the trailer isn’t the “Heaven” Kanji, but is instead the one for “god” over the one for “man.” When Akuma transformed into Shin Akuma in Capcom vs SNK 2, the latter is the combination that appeared.

In other Street Fighter V news, Capcom announced that the Skies of Honor stage is releasing tomorrow, November 8 for $3.99 USD/70,000 Fight Money:

If Akuma is the start of the next slate of DLC characters for Street Fighter V, who else would you like to see added in the future?
