It seems like Street Fighter 5 is on a roll as it releases its latest line of Downloadable Content (DLC) characters, The most notable one being Akuma. The latest released trailer was shown after the Red Bull Battle Grounds tournament finals in Seattle and fans also gets a first look on a new stage seemingly looking like a ruined dojo.

Akuma in the latest trailer for Street Fighter 5 is shown executing a move called Shun Goku Satsu (also known as Raging Demon). A move depicted where Akuma is shown to take a forward fighting stance. Akuma seems to phase through opponents in an instant and welcoming them with a barrage of fatal blows which, in most cases result in an instant victory. A Japanese symbol for the word (Heaven) appears on his back completing the iconic move.

According to Event Hubs, fans were quick to point out that those Japanese symbols (Kanji) for Street Fighter 5 is a little bit different as it went from Heaven to God which was a reference to a version of Akuma in a previous game Capcom Vs SNK 2.

Capcom has not announced an official date for Akuma's release on Street Fighter 5. However, the character will be playable at an event (PlayStation Experience) which will be held at Anaheim Convention Center on December 3-4.

Going deeper into the Street Fighter 5 DLC, Last September 22 Capcom added characters namedJuri and  Alex which can be access for purchase by using the games own currency, fight money or real money via its season pass. Fighting money can be earned through the games' updated daily targets which players can earn 1000 and 500 in participating in the training mode.

Overall Street Fighter 5 dawns a wonderful, diverse cast of characters, places a clear emphasis on strong fundamental play, it gives competitive players a great online experience, and it does it all while looking gorgeous.
