Not since Street Fighter X Tekken have a character from both games been able to battle each other. It only makes sense that these two games would eventually cross over, hell DC and Mortal Kombat crossed over so anything is possible. The look at feel of Street Fighter has changed dramatically ever since the release of Street Fighter 4 and with it looking so close to how Tekken looks, gamers won’t be taken out of the experience when they see Akuma join the Tekken 7 Fated Retribution.

Whether you know him as Gouki or Akuma, you know the character and what he can do. Many of rounds I spent in the arcade trying to do his Raging Demon move, but it was only when I figured out you had to have his special bar maxed out did I finally do it. Ever since Street Fighter vs. X-Men, Akuma has been my go to person and he will continue to be as long as he’s playable. As far as Tekken goes I was always a Nina fan, but if I get a chance to play this then I’ll definitely be going with Akuma
