Akuma to appear in SFIV arcade

He'll be a boss character.

News has emerged that Street Fighter IV arcade players will get to duff up Akuma in the single player mode.

Hardnuts who are doing spectacularly well against the CPU will eventually find themselves challenged to a bout against the old Super Street Fighter II Turbo character.

Capcom had previously revealed that Akuma and Cammy would appear in the console versions of the game, but now the uber-obsessed need wait no more.

Providing you have an arcade near you that actually bothers to stock games made after 1998, that is.
