Street Fighter 6 Gameplay Reveals New DLC Character A.K.I. Ahead of Late September Release

Richard Walker

Capcom has announced that next month will see the arrival of second DLC character A.K.I. for Street Fighter 6, following the addition of Rashid last month. Like Rashid, A.K.I. will be preceded by her own limited-time Fighter Pass, offering themed items and cosmetics.

A.K.I. shares her venomous personality and slithering skills with her master F.A.N.G. (first introduced in Street Fighter V), and in World Tour, you'll be able to find out more about her interest in the shady Shadaloo syndicate, while helping her to find herbal medicine in the new location of Tian Hong Yuan, China.

Here's a breakdown of A.K.I.'s moves, which you'll also be able to outfit your avatar with by enrolling with her in World Tour:

  • Serpent Lash: From a distance, A.K.I. sends her nails flying forward like a chain, poisoning enemies she hits. When she strikes an opponent who is already poisoned, a Toxic Blossom will trigger an explosion and open enemies up to follow-up attacks.
  • Nightshade Pulse: A.K.I. sends a bubble forward that also poisons enemies it hits. She can strike the bubble with Nightshade Chaser to pop it in advance, increasing its area of effect.
  • Orchid Spring: A.K.I. places a puddle of poison in front of her which will affect opponents who step inside it.
  • Sinister Slide: Slither across the screen to avoid threats while stalking forward and perform follow-up moves like Venomous Fang, Heel Strike, or Entrapment.
  • Claws of Ya Zi: A.K.I.’s Level 3 Super Art pierces various pressure points on an opponent’s body and injects a poison that dangerously detonates from within.

A.K.I. will be coming to Street Fighter 6 from 27th September, available with the Year 1 Character Pass (which also includes access to Rashid, Ed, and Akuma) or for purchase using Fighter Coins. The ‘A.K.I. Arrives!’ Fighting Pass also goes like at 12am PT on 1st September.
