The latter is preparing to fight his inner demons in the form of the Satsui No Hado, and glowing energy slowly approaches him behind the waterfall. The energy came from Akuma, and the two begin to fight one another.

Akuma gains the upper hand against his opponent as Ryu struggles to contain the Satsui No Hado as he fears he will lose control over himself if he succumbs to the dark power.

The trailer also featured several characters from the sequel such as Chun-Li, Menat, Abigail, Laura, Rasheed, and Kolin. Capcom will reveal more details about the "Arcade Edition" during their panel at the New York Comic-Con 2017 [VIDEO] event.
