Akuma Finally Makes His Return For Street Fighter V

While many here at The Outerhaven aren’t exactly happy with the state of Capcom’s Street Fighter V, there’s no denying that it’s good to see that one of the series most popular characters making their return. That’s right, Akuma or Gouki is finally making his way to Street Fighter V to bust some heads. Many fans, including myself, was sorely disappointed to see that that Akuma was on loan to Bandai Namco for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, with no mention of him for SFV. 

While we don’t have any time frames on when we can expect him to make his return, Capcom has announced that he’ll be playable at the upcoming PlayStation Experience, which takes place on December 3-4, 2016. 

While we won’t be in attendance at the event, expect to see a ton of coverage of Akuma, as we get our hands on it, when it drops.
