Street FIghter V fans are looking forward to Capcom Cup to see Akuma thinking he will be shown. Well it seems we have the wrong idea. Ono sat down with Famitsu Magazine and says the teaser was not teasing Akuma but something else. Even though the trailer doesn’t say Akuma is coming to SFV his voice and signature move the raging demon is seen in the trailer making fans think he will be coming to the game. I will post the whol conversation as the man interviewing Ono had the same expression we all do.
“going to be playable, so I’d like to ask a bit about that.
Ono: Nobody said that Akuma’s in the game, haha.
Famitsu: Eh?! Then what was that announcement video?
Ono: We actually never said that a new character is coming at all. We just said that people would be able to experience what we showed in that video, that’s all, haha.
Famitsu: That’s what it meant?! Well then, at least we can confirm that there’s something to personally experience at the PSX?
Ono: Yes. That’s undeniable. But it’s going to be something that betrays everyone’s expectations, in a good way, I think.
Famitsu: Betrays everyone’s expectations?!
Ono: A lot of things have been leaked in the past, but we’ve had very strict regulations on this in particular, so please look forward to hearing what we have to announce.
Ayano: I think it’s going to be in the middle of the night in Japan, but please try and watch it live if you can.
Famitsu: So if you have a lot of things coming up at the PSX, does that mean we’ll be hearing something about the 2017 season as well… ?
Ono: Yes, that’s right. The reason I’ve been very calm and quiet on Twitter lately is because the higher-ups told me, so I don’t accidentally give too much away, haha.”
What do you guys is Ono messing with us or do we have this wrong? Let me know. Here is the original trailer.
As always thank you fore reading.
