Tekken 7 Fated Retribution - Akuma Video Round-Up

Where do we even begin with such a character. Here be a video round up of all the news and character info to come out of the Tekken 7 Fated Retribution launch in Japanese and Korean arcades this week. This will hopefully help make you understand why Akuma is creating a ruckus in a Tekken game. Good luck at Evo. ggeznore.

▌Shoryuken

10f launcher with meter. Even without meter it's extremely good because it's a knockdown 10f punish. It combos from a jab so you can buffer the motion from it like f+1 ~ d~d/f+1

Light Shoryuken is 10f start-up with no invincibility. Heavy Shoryuken is 13f start-up but has invincibility from around the 8th frame.

▌Akuma Death Combos
 ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄

Having 2 bars of meter and Rage is easy to fulfill for Akuma players.

 

Worth mentioning though: (Saving Attack refers to focus attack here)

▌Akuma Wall Combos
 ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄

 

These next two videos are interesting because d/f+1,1 into Air Tatsu is a guaranteed tech catch at the wall. CPU Heihachi is set to tech then guard all here:

 

From the tweet: Demon Flip throw at the wall into d+3 is guaranteed. You can d+3 → Shoryuken → FADC backwards to get a wall combo. His ff+4 kick will also spike the opponent down making Shoryuken guaranteed.

 

I don't know what's going on here. If you FADC a Shakunetsu Hadouken (The hcb fireball) and then do a wr+1 or a d+3, it becomes unblockable and they will get wallsplatted.

▌Akuma Combos
 ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄  ̄
