Street Fighter‘s raging demon is finally returning for Street Fighter V.

Immediately following Team Liquid’s Du “NuckleDu” Dang’s incredible victory of Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi at the Red Bull Battle Grounds, Capcom teased the popular Street Fighter villain in a short trailer.


Unfortunately, all we got was a very brief glimpse of Akuma but he will be playable at PlayStation Experience, the site of Capcom Cup’s finals, which takes place December 3-4.

We’ll have more news and information on the character as it becomes available.
