Rival Schools is one of Capcom’s fighting games that often comes up when people are asked about titles they want to be brought back or remade. While nothing has been said on that front, at least we’re getting Akira in Street Fighter V.
She will be released tomorrow, August 16, alongside Oro, and she certainly looks great.
Incidentally, we recently got the first look at the character that will come after Akira and Oro and is also supposed to be the last introduced in the game, Luke.
You can check out Akira’s moves in the trailer below, which includes a look at her new stage.
If you’re unfamiliar with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, which is now available for PS4 and PC, here’s how Capcom describes it. You can also take a look at the first trailer showcasing Akira from a while ago.
“Rule the ring with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game! This new version includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Champion Edition adds each character, stage and other content that released after Arcade Edition and with the release of this new version. In total: 40 characters, 34 stages, over 200 costumes – all action-packed into one knockout edition! READY? FIGHT!
All game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all DLC characters remain earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Certain additional content can only be acquired using Fight Money, which can be earned through normal gameplay.”
