Akuma from “Street Fighter” fame is coming to an arcade update version of “Tekken 7.”
The Street Fighter antagonist's entry came as a surprise when a trailer video (via Shoryuken) was presented at the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
As seen in the video, the arcade version's update is titled “Fated Retribution,” and features Ryu's rival fighting against characters in the Mishima clan-led game.

About a year ago, Tekken 7 was announced in a trailer that featured old conversations between Heihachi Mishima's presumed wife Kazumi Mishima and a muscular, shadowy figure. Although it was revealed then that she had to stop her husband, the person remained a mystery to many.
Now that the new trailer has been revealed, the shadowy figure is now known to be Akuma, the Master of Fist himself. He is reported to be cast as an anti-hero joining the King of Iron Fist tournament in a quest to eliminate Heihachi and son Kazuya Mishima.
Aside from the trailer revealing new costumes and other things in the game, the most important part is how Akuma looks amazingly good despite being ported into a Tekken game.
Probably, Akuma's arrival into the Tekken engine is a testing phase for Bandai Namco, to see if whether they will succeed in letting other characters from Street Fighter (or any other game) join the Mishima territory.
This is not the first time that Tekken and Street Fighter are collaborating
Fans will remember in 2012 that Capcom released Street Fighter X Tekken, where Tekken characters joined the fight in a Street Fighter world.
Earlier than that, game companies Namco and Capcom released a tactical role-playing game in 2005 titled Namco X Capcom, where characters from both companies aside from the aforementioned titles joined forces to fight villains. However, this was only released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan.
So far, it is unsure when Fated Retribution will come to Japanese arcades, nor Tekken 7 hit consoles. Fans are advised to wait.
