Ono: Nobody said that Akuma's in [Street Fighter 5] *laughs*; we actually never said that a new character is coming at all

Akuma is coming to Street Fighter 5 and will be playable at the PlayStation Experience next week, right? That's what the epic teaser trailer at the Red Bull Battlegrounds earlier this month seemed to suggest, anyway.

In a interview with Famitsu, Capcom producers Yoshinori Ono and Tomoaki Ayano discussed the current state of Street Fighter 5 and what's to come. When asked about the aforementioned Akuma reveal and the character's playable status, Ono had something very interesting to say.

"Nobody said that Akuma's in the game," Ono laughed. He went on to say that the trailer never explicitly stated that a new character was coming to the game.

Though the interview as conducted in Japanese, our very own Nicholas "MajinTenshinhan" Taylor provided us with the English translation.

Street Fighter 5 has an average input lag of 6.5 now according to Display Lag's initial draft test

Initial tests of Street Fighter 5's input lag with the 1.09 release of the game show a reduction in input lag, down to about an average of 6.5 frames.

The game has previously been documented as having about 7.9 frames of input lag on the PS4, prior to this patch that was released on Sept. 22, 2016.

Display Lag posted a new video which added a caveat that the "test is a rough draft until our new testing method is finalized soon. Due to the nature of this test, it may be slightly inaccurate due to the lack of an LED to determine activation point."

Display Lag also noted that "it's still ~2 frames behind Ultra Street Fighter 4 using this testing method," but they will update with new information when new testing equipment arrives, as this current method is prone to inaccuracies.

Urien's official trailer unveiled, release date to be announced at Tokyo Game Show

It's time, folks! Capcom has released Urien's official Street Fighter 5 trailer.

In the latest Capcom Unity blog, we learn that the release date for this DLC character and the September updates will be revealed at Tokyo Game Show next week, which begins on September 15th.

Urien made his debut back in Street Figther 3: 2nd Impact. He is the Vice President of Illuminati, and looks to overthrow his brother Gill as leader, then destroy Shadaloo. He's sadistic and elitist, and gets joy out of making others crumble at the sight of his power.

In Street Fighter 5, Urien is back with a pin-striped suit and a big smile on his face. He has strong normals, long combos, and slow moving projectiles that allow him to better pressure the opponent. Adding to his ability to apply pressure is his Aegis Reflector, which makes its return from the Street Fighter 3 series.
