Learn How to Play As Akuma in Street Fighter 5 In This Video

Get good with the first of the Street Fighter 5 2017 Character Pass releases.


Street Fighter 5 is bringing a whole new year of new characters with the 2017 Character Pass. The first of these characters is Akuma, the Satsui no Hado master.

Capcom Community Manager Matt Edwards takes you through a tour of the dark master's moves. You'll get to see some of Akuma's combos, special moves, and get an idea of just how he plays in Street Fighter 5.

To get your hands on Akuma, you'll have to shell out $30 for the 2017 Street Fighter 5 Character Pass. The character pass also unlocks seven different default costume colors for each of the six characters that will be released. Akuma will be the only familiar face with the upcoming characters, though. The next five are supposed to be all new fighters making their first debut in the series.

You can get Akuma when the Street Fighter 5 2017 Character Pass launches on December 20.
