Street Fighter 6 Akuma Outfit 2 Costume Origins Revealed

Akuma is set to join the cast of Street Fighter 6 on May 22, 2024, and Capcom offered insights into his Outfit 2 costume. It is directly inspired by Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

This is particularly notable because Super Street Fighter II Turbo is when Akuma became playable for the first time. He’s wearing his standard grey karate gi and prayer beads, as well as a rope belt. The fiery kanji 天 appears on his back.

Here are the four screenshots showing the Street Fighter 6 Akuma Outfit 2 costume. Capcom noted it can be acquired both with Fighter Coins or by playing through World Tour once the character is live.

To compare, here’s a screenshot from Capcom from Capcom Arcade Stadium: Super Street Fighter II Turbo showing the inspiration for this Akuma costume.

In addition to the character appearing in Street Fighter 6, there will be items for us inspired by him. The Akuma Arrives Fighting Pass launches that same day. It features avatar gear cosmetics inspired by him, music like “Akuma’s Theme -USFII Remix-,” and an emote.

Street Fighter 6 is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC, and the Akuma DLC release date is May 22, 2024.
