How To Unlock Gouken and Akuma in Street Fighter 4
There have been more than a few difficulties about how to unlock Gouken and Akuma in Street Fighter 4 for the PS3. Well, based on Capcom’s insight…we have the full instructions right below:
How to Unlock Akuma:
First unlock the following characters; Cammy, Fei Long, Dan, Sakura, Rose, and Gen.
Once the Street Fighter characters above are unlocked, pick a character you have already used to beat the game with (in Arcade Mode)
You must win ALL matches WITHOUT even one continue and WITHOUT losing any rounds before reaching Seth.
Get at least one “perfect” win in a round, and more based on how many rounds played each match.

3 round match: 2 perfect rounds or more
5 round match: 3 perfect rounds or more
7 round match: 4 perfect rounds or more
(including the last battle against Seth)
If all this has been achieved, Akuma will be your next opponent, where you must beat him to receive him as a playable character.
