Yes, you read it right, Akuma from Street Fighter is now the latest character in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution.
At the end “The King of Iron First Tournament” happened in Japan in Dec. 12, Tekken 7 Director and Producer Katsuhiro Harada announced a major update for Fated Retribution which includes new costumes, graphics overhauls and new character, Akuma.
According to Harada, Akuma is not just a guest character but he is heavily involved in this game’s storyline. Now, is Akuma now a property of Tekken and Bandai-Namco, and no longer involved with Street Fighter and Capcom? Let’s wait for future updates on that and now, that answered the question why Akuma is not in the upcoming Street Fighter V game.
