Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers – How to unlock Shin Akuma

Capcom unveiled at San Diego Comic Con a new playable character from Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, the Shin Akuma, as well as how to unlock it.

To unlock this fighter, you have to enter a series of codes on the fighter selection screen:

  • Choose Ryu, select Color 1, then press cancel
  • Choose Ken, select Color 9, then press cancel
  • Choose Sagat, select Color 8, and then press cancel
  • Choose M. Bison, select Color 7, and then press cancel
  • Select Random select, and then press the keys L and R at the same time.
  • Akuma Shin is a more powerful version of Akuma, taking more damage but maintaining the same amount of HP.

    However, there is something to take into account. If you try this fighter and like to use it, you will have to get used to using this code, as you need to enter it whenever you want to play with Shin Akuma. Although this player is for the Nintendo Switch, this goes back to the time of Ultra Street Fighter II Turbo in arcades, in which players had to enter the codes whenever they played.

    This may appeal to veteran and nostalgic players, but for younger players it can be inconvenient.
