Capcom has revealed a new trailer for Akira Kazama from 1997's Rival Schools, as she makes her debut in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition today, alongside Street Fighter III: The New Generation's Oro.

Arriving with her brother Daigo, biker Akira Kazama arrives in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition with versatile close and long-range moves, with her V-Skill I, Kiko Rensei, opening up opponents for combos, while her V-Skill II, Tsutenda, launches rivals skywards for aerial combos.

Akira's V-Trigger I is called ‘Otoko No Senaka’, and summons brother Daigo in for attacking support. Her V-Trigger II is ‘Haten No Kamae’, and puts Akira into a special stance that enables three different follow-up strikes. All in all, Akira sounds pretty damn formidable.

Both Akira Kazama and Oro are now available for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition as part of the Season 5 Premium Pass, which will also be adding the fifth and final character, Luke, in November 2021. Akira also brings with her the new ‘Rival Riverside’ stage - a reimagined version of Akira's high school, set during sunset near the river.
