Virtua Fighter’s Akira to appear in Smash Bros Ultimate as assist trophy

It looks like Super Smash Bros Ultimate will continue to pay tribute to the innovative Virtua Fighter franchise. During the release of Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo announced that Virtua Fighter’s Akira and Jacky outfits would come to the games via DLC. Now Virtua Fighter’s Akria will appear in the game when it launches as a assist trophy. It has also been confirmed that Shadow the Hedgehog would be returning once again as a assist trophy as well, which would mark his 3rd appearance as a assist trophy. Very surprised he didn’t get a echo fighter treatment.

Nintendo also announced a ton of new content for the upcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate release on Nintendo Switch, so check that out. Sadly not a lot of it is SEGA related, so not posting it here.

    wasnt ryu already in?????? why is he being aded again????

  2. Ryu is different from Akira. Ryu is from Capcom and Akira is from Virtua Fighter by SEGA.

    There aren’t many SEGA characters in the game, but that’s not the point. Smash allows Sonic and Bayonetta to beat up every Nintendo character as revenge for the console wars. When needed, they can call in Akira for an assist.

  4. I never thought I’d see someone imply Akira Yuki and Ryu from Street Fighter are the same. Quick, name me the game where Akira threw fireballs without Googling it.

    I wish Shinobi was apart of it.
