Akuma Coming to Street Fighter 6 May 22

The legendary Akuma will unleash his rage in Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 when he joins the roster on May 22.

A cold and extremely powerful warrior, Akuma features moves that are faster than those of Ryu and Ken. He also packs some unique moves of his own, including the Ashura Senkuu teleport move.
