Oro and Akira Coming to Street Fighter V August 16

It’s a double impact when Oro and Akira come to Capcom’s Street Fighter V on August 16, 2021.

Originally appearing in Street Fighter III: New Generation, Oro is a 140 year old Japanese hermit that possesses the secrets of immortality. He wields the arts of Senjutsu, with a Nichirin Shou projectile, an Oni Yanma uppercut, and a Jinchuu Watari kick attack.

Meanwhile, Akira Kazama hails from Capcom’s Rival Schools: United by Fate. This Taiyo High student (and later Seijyun High student) uses the Bajiquan Chinese martial artist style, packing moves like the Cyclone Dance and Releasing Dance. She also brings with her the “Rival Riverside” stage to Street Fighter V.
