Street Fighter 6 Akuma DLC Character May

Street Fighter 6 Adds Akuma as Fourth DLC Fighter This May

Street Fighter 6 is adding its fourth DLC fighter, Akuma, in an update this May. Alongside the new character, Capcom is also adding some fresh outfits for DLC characters, a new stage and “major battle balance updates” next month.

Akuma will be unlocked on 22 May for those that own the Year 1 Character Pass for Street Fighter 6. The fighter will be featured in all three main modes: World Tour, Fighting Ground and Battle Hub. Akuma is sporting a menacing new design and his character model looks fantastic thanks to the RE Engine.

In addition to Akuma, previous Year 1 DLC characters Rashid, A.K.I. and Ed will all receive new outfits. Capcom is also adding a new stage called Emma’s Hollow “where Akuma resides to continue his hellbent training” and bringing some “major battle balance updates” to the award-winning fighting game.

Street Fighter 6 was a commercial success when it launched last June, selling one million copies in its first week. According to Capcom, the game has now sold over 3 million copies. Street Fighter 6 also went up against Mortal Kombat 1 in the Best Fighting Game category last year at The Game Awards, winning the big award and securing its title as one of the best fighters in recent memory.
