Earlier this month, Capcom announced an exciting addition to the Street Fighter 6 roster. A new character named A.K.I. will be joining the game as a DLC fighter on September 27. Players can look forward to a twisted gameplay reveal trailer showcasing A.K.I.’s unique abilities.

A.K.I.: The 20th Playable Character

When A.K.I. arrives next month, she will become the 20th playable character in Street Fighter 6. Following in the footsteps of the first DLC fighter, Rashid, who was introduced in July, A.K.I. will be available in all three game modes: World Tour, Fighting Ground, and the Battle Hub.

Introducing A.K.I.’s Moves

Here’s a brief overview of A.K.I.’s moves:

  • Serpent Lash: A.K.I. extends her nails like a chain, poisoning enemies on impact. A successful strike on a poisoned opponent triggers a Toxic Blossom explosion, leaving them open to follow-up attacks.
  • Nightshade Pulse: A.K.I. sends a poisonous bubble towards her enemies. By using the Nightshade Chaser move, she can pop the bubble in advance, increasing its area of effect.
  • Orchid Spring: A.K.I. creates a poison puddle that affects enemies who step into it.
  • Sinister Slide: A.K.I. evades incoming attacks by slithering across the screen. This move sets her up for counterattacks like Venomous Fang, Heel Strike, and Entrapment.
  • Claws of Ya Zi: A.K.I.’s Level 3 Super Art targets pressure points on an enemy’s body, injecting poison that detonates from within.

On September 27, A.K.I.’s Outfit 2 will be available to owners of the Year 1 Character Pass, Street Fighter 6 Deluxe Edition, or Ultimate Edition. Additionally, players can try out A.K.I. for one hour using a Rental Fighter ticket obtained through the Fighting Pass. The “A.K.I.
