Akuma may appear broken, but this training video tells a different story

The first time we remember anyone saying that Akuma was not safe was when Poongko used him at CEO against Aris, and in the Tekken Auction. And now that Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is out in Asian arcades with videos constantly being uploaded, there are even more cries of brokenness.

But how true are these cries? Is there any merit, or does it boil down to not knowing the matchup?

This video by OGC shows that Akuma is far from a safe character. He has moves – key moves – that can can be punished if blocked or he whiffs. Sounds like many just need to hit the lab like this guy to get familiar with how to defend against him.

Take a look at this tweet from MarkMan for the goods.

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
