Street Fighter 6 A.K.I.

Street Fighter 6 DLC character A.K.I. dated and showcased in gameplay trailer

That girl is poison. 

Deadly moves are on the menu with Street Fighter 6 DLC character A.K.I., who launches on September 27. Capcom revealed the launch date along with a new gameplay trailer showing off her poisonous powers.

A.K.I. certainly seems to fit her lethal theme nicely. From the eccentric dialogue to her serpentine movements, she looks like she’s in it for the thrill of the kill. You can see her in action in the preview below.

A.K.I. takes inspiration from her master F.A.N.G., who we first met in Street Fighter V. Many of her moves are poison-centric, from the long-distance Serpent Leash to the poison puddle known as Orchid Spring. Her story reflects this, as well, with more insight available in World Tour mode. There you’ll be able to help her track down herbal medicine in new location Tian Hong Yuan, while learning about her interest in the Shadaloo organization. If you also dig a deadly touch, you can add her moves to your custom avatar. Will you be able to slither like a snake, too? Anything is possible if you believe in yourself.

A.K.I. will be available for Deluxe Edition, Ultimate Edition, and Year 1 Character Pass owners. Those who prefer to try before they buy can take A.K.I. for an hour-long spin with a Rental Fighter ticket, which you’ll need a Fighting Pass to secure. 

A.K.I. was first announced alongside the first wave of Street Fighter 6 DLC characters back in April. Following the launch of Rashid in July, next up after A.K.I. will be Ed and Akuma at some point.
