This comes as a huge surprise to fighting game fans who have been patiently waiting to see Akuma appear in Street Fighter V.
While Street Fighter V players may be upset the fighter is currently skipping SFV, our opinion is that it's better to see Akuma in Tekken 7 than nothing at all.
Careful inspection of the trailer reveals Akuma's Street Fighter IV varient has been ported to the Tekken engine and has been given a new coat of paint.
This may mean that since Street Fighter V is in it's infancy, Capcom would like to wait a little longer to decide how to design the fan favorite character in Street Fighter V. After all, Akuma being included in Tekken 7 is a reminder that Tekken X Street Fighter is still in development. Akuma's appearance in Tekken 7 may convince Street Fighter players to give the game a fair shot.
