Akra is back!
Yes folks you here right! Akira is back and making a new fighting IP but the title has yet been finalize. It’s been 19 years, since we seen Akira enter the fighting game scene. Akira bring us Street fighter Ex series and Fighting Layer. Although, Capcom doesn’t own the right to the character but it’s a way to introduce Akira characters in Street fighter. I have played both Fighting Layer and Street Fighter Ex, even it’s Street Fighter in 3D. The feel of the game I was not familiar with at the time. I had funny with it in the early 2000s. Akira got some interesting characters such as Skullomania, Darun Mister, Doctrine Dark, Garuda and more.
Now is 2017 and Akira is back and ready to fight. During EVO 2017, Akira showcase a untitled fighting featuring one of the three characters I mention. Starting in their own fighting game but it’s look like it model after Street Fighter IV. Based on the screenshot I see some mechanics in the bottom of the screen. It looks like status or power ups, you use in combat I am not sure. In the trailer, there is super moves from Street Fighter EX if you played the game. In the end of the year, Akira will relase a beta on the game at the end of the Year. I can’t wait to try it out and hope this be at EVO 2018. Check out the trailer down below and see what is Akira up too.
