AKI, a new addition to the Street Fighter 6 roster, will be hitting the brawler shortly. The date has been set and fans can also watch a trailer.
Street Fighter 6 players will soon be able to play with another character on the stage. AKI joins the roster. The fighter will be unlocked on September 27, 2023, as Capcom announced today.
The new addition will be made available as part of the Year 1 Character Pass. The pass is part of the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of “Street Fighter 6” and can for the price of 29.99 euros also be purchased separately.
A crazy poison lover
AKI is the second DLC character for Street Fighter 6 after Rashid ushered in the release of new characters through the pass. She uses her deadly long nails in battle and has been described by Capcom as a “mad lover of poison”.
AKI was introduced in a trailer that was released earlier this month. Not only did he show off her crazy personality, but also some of the combos that are a part of her moveset. Like Rashid, AKI will be available in all Street Fighter 6 game modes, including the single-player World Tour mode.
The new fighter draws much of her toxic personality and inspiration from her master, FANG, who first appeared in Street Fighter 5.
In the single-player World Tour mode, players can learn more about AKI’s interest in the evil Shadaloo organization and help her find her herbal medicine in Tian Hong Yuan. It’s a new place where players can meet their newest master and apply their deadly moves to their custom avatar.
More information about AKI and their skills is available summarized on the PlayStation Blogwhere you can also see some pictures of the new fighter.
Street Fighter 6 is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PC. With over two million copies sold, announced in June, it’s a huge hit for Capcom.
