Red Bull Battle Grounds was a tournament of surprises all around, but perhaps one of the biggest was the official announcement that Akuma is joining the roster after all. Since he’s currently a playable character in Tekken, many fans thought he would be absent from the roster, or at least a very late addition. Now that he’s been announced, all you Raging Demon fans can breathe a sigh of relief. However, as Red Bull E-Sports points out, some of the DLC characters have been struggling with becoming tournament-viable.
We’ll just have to wait and see, but, like Urien, I think we’ll see Akuma in top-8 play within a couple months of his release if he’s his old self. Please enjoy the teaser trailer below, and check back with Gamer Pantheon in December for an initial Akuma reaction and more from Playstation Experience 2016.
