Street Fighter has become tougher this time. One may come up with the games 7 difficulties but defeating the final boss, Seth is real havoc. So, to win the game one of the important tricks is getting a suitable character for yourself.

The following guide will let you know “how to unlock every character” in this game. Start the game with options set to “one round match” and difficulty as suitable.

Beat Arcade Mode as Chun-Li.

Beat Arcade Mode as Ryu.

Beat Arcade Mode as M. Bison.

Fei Long
Beat Arcade Mode as Abel.

Beat Arcade Mode as C. Viper.

Beat Arcade Mode as Sakura (unlocked through Ryu above).

After unlocking all the above, choose someone you have already beaten Arcade Mode with and play through again. You must not continue before reaching Seth.

You must get at least one “perfect” round in which you aren’t hit by your opponent. After beating Seth, Akuma should appear. You simply have to defeat him (continues shouldn’t matter anymore) to unlock him.

First, beat Arcade Mode as Akuma. Now, startup Arcade Mode as someone you have already beaten it with, and you have to make it through without any continues or losses at all.

Also, you need at least one “perfect” round, three “Super/Ultra Combo” finishes, and you need to get the first hit in at least five rounds. After that, Gouken will appear, and you must defeat him.

Beat Arcade Mode with all characters.
