Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma in SSFIV

Arcade Edition only for now...

The heavily rumoured addition of Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma to Super Street Fighter IV has been confirmed – for the Japanese-only Arcade Edition.

In a new trailer released today (spotted by Eventhubs) an image showing Evil Ryu and Oni Akuma can be seen around the 2 minute 20 second mark. Check it out below.

It's not clear at this stage whether the dastardly duo are playable characters, but it's a good bet. And let's hope so, Evil Ryu was great in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Evil Ryu is, as his name suggests, a naughty version of Ryu. He's more powerful and aggressive than his sulky counterpart, and plays similarly to Akuma.

We're not sure what Oni Akuma's about, but he looks like he could be an even more dangerous version of the Akuma we know and love (hate).

They follow Yun and Yang as newcomers to the SSFIV roster. But will they make it to the home console versions?

Last week Yun, Yang and Evil Ryu were spotted in a new batch of Super Street Fighter IV Xbox 360 Achievements, leading some to speculate that they will be added as DLC. Fingers crossed.
