Evil Ryu, Oni Akuma confirmed for SSFIV arcade

Friday, 3rd December 2010 10:11 GMT By Johnny Cullen


A new trailer for the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV has supposedly confirmed Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma for the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV.

The two are spotted at the 2:20 mark of a new trailer that’s below (thanks, EventHubs).

Evil Ryu is what his name describes: an evil version of Ryu. Duh.

But what Oni Akuma, name not being official, is all about is unknown.

Fellow SSFIV characters Yin and Yang have been speculated to join the live-up of the fighter on consoles recently, so it’s probably a safe bet Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma will probably jump over too.

    Seeing as ‘Oni Akuma’ has white hair i’m assuming he’s no different then Shin Akuma. Odd name change if he is though.

    Oni Akuma is probably Shin Akuma but it’s a weird name.

    Akuma is called Gouki which means “Great Demon”. Akuma means ‘devil’. The ‘ki’ in ‘Gouki’ is also pronounced ‘Oni’ like in ‘Onimusha’ (demon warrior). So the name ‘Oni Akuma’ is very weird to me since it literally translates as ‘Demon Devil’
