Akuma is now a playable character!!!

As hinted and later promised by shizowa San, Akuma is now a playable character in the arcade version of SF4.

His move set has also been uploaded to the official Street Fighter 4 website, which according to it Akuma has TWO (yes count them 2) shun goku satsu moves, one for his super and the other is for his Ultra.
I for one was expecting a messatsu go shoryu or messatsu go hado for his super (especially that the latter was shown in the anime cutscene) Nonetheless i love the shun goku satsu, and what is better than a shun goku satsu? two versions of "the" shun goku satsu of course :) so count me as one happy fella.

Shizowa san has Also released Some Akuma's sketches drawn by Ikeno, the art director and designer of SF4.

We will try to have a video of the demon in motion later in the day, in the mean time enjoy the screens.

Too damn cool! The only thing is that it looks like he grew out of those pants years ago. The bottom are up to his calves, lol.

To be honest I'm not that surprised Akuma made it into the game, but it's amazing news to still see it be true. I imagine that he'll be in the console releases too.

Playing it in the arcade feels proper, but what system are you guys thinking of buying the game on for home use? If you don't have both a PS3 and a 360 you should take a look at this Stacker 2contest going on where you can win a PS3 or Xbox 360 (your choice). All you need to do to enter is design a 6 Hour Power t-shirt, which is really easy to do online. There are less than 250 entrants as of now, and you can also win weekly prizes like a copy of Rise of the Argonauts and 6 Hour Power energy shots (which are great for gaming sessions). Check out the details here:

By the way, strugler, I hope you don't mind me commenting on the blog. I work with 6HP so feel free to ask me any questions about the drink or the contest. Let me know if you guys enter too, and I'd be happy to vote for your designs. Good luck to those entering.
