Akiras newly released Street Fighter 5 trailer showcases air combos that would feel at home in a Marvel vs. Capcom title – EventHubs

Capcom has released a new trailer that showcases Akira’s gameplay in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. Although a lot about Akira in Street Fighter 5 was revealed during the recent Summer Update stream, this trailer gives us just a little bit more information about the upcoming character.

For the first time, we get to hear Akira’s English voice. At the start of every match, she can be heard saying “If I go too far, please forgive me!”

As expected of a Rival Schools character, Akira’s air combo game is quite formidable. By just watching her perform an air combo in her Street Fighter 5 trailer, you might be made to think that this was actually a Marvel vs. Capcom title.

Matthew Edwards of Capcom noted that he had a lot of fun figuring out the combo shown in the trailer. He then leaves a hint that indicates that there might be some hidden utility with Akira’s V-Skill 2, Tsutenda.

Akira’s V-Trigger 1, Otoko no Senaka, calls her older brother, Daigo Kazama, in to assists with a couple of his own iconic attacks. By stringing together some attacks in between Daigo’s hits, some unique combos are possible.

Remember that Oro and Akira Kazama are both scheduled to be released tomorrow, August 16. Check out Akira’s new trailer below:
