Akuma is totally playable in Street Fighter IV

By Spencer . September 2, 2008 . 12:29pm


Capcom didn’t just include Akuma as a coin eating challenge. A move list on the official site verifies he is also a playable character in the arcade version of Street Fighter IV. He seems even more powerful since his trademark Shun Goku Satsu special is now a super move and an ultra move. Apparently the character is unlocked via a code, a smart way to update the game without having to release new arcade boards. However, I wonder how this is going to impact the small, but growing list of unofficial Street Fighter IV machines around the world.
