First of all, Akuma looks absolutely beautiful in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. The game's visuals are off the charts, as expected since it's made for the latest generation console.

YouTuber Toitoi123 has spliced together a handful of Akuma's animations from Street Fighter 4 and Tekken 7 so we can compare how the demonic fighter moves in each game.

Though he has many of his traditional moves, the Tekken 7 Akuma does look like he's been formatted to exist in the Tekken universe.

His jump arc doesn't appear to be as high, his roundhouse doesn't appear to move him forward as much and his fireballs make a huge explosion upon impact. You'll see a snippet of the comparison below.

Keep in mind that this is only the trailer footage of Akuma in Tekken 7, so there's more investigation to be done. Still, what do you think of the Street Fighter's visuals in the Fateful Retribution?
