During the days of Street Fighter 5, numerous parody trailers were released for Vega and Ed that really highlighted their problems in ways that the official trailers never did. Later, this same type of trailer was also created for F.A.N.G.
A.K.I. was recently released as the latest DLC fighter for Street Fighter 6. Despite what was shown in the official trailer, many have come to believe that A.K.I. is one of the weaker characters in Street Fighter 6 at the moment.
Due to this, Venom has decided to create a “proper showcase” trailer for A.K.I. in Street Fighter 6. Just like with the parody trailers that were released during the era of Street Fighter 5, these segments are instead intended to put a magnifying glass on some of A.K.I.’s design flaws.
Based on this “proper showcase” trailer, it would appear that A.K.I.’s Sinister Slide follow ups can sometimes have difficulty passing through projectiles. Additionally, A.K.I.’s anti-airs are demonstrated to be inconsistent.
At one point, Venom demonstrates how much damage A.K.I.’s poison deals while the opponent is positioned in her poison puddle. Though A.K.I.’s damage is actually said to be quite high, the poison mechanic on its own doesn’t appear to be that threatening.
Check out all the hilarity in the clip below:
