, but fans have already discovered two secret super moves he can use. The catch? You can only use them after his secret taunt - the one that involves Akuma sitting on the ground, chomping on a rice ball for 30 seconds.

Most characters only have three super moves, but Akuma has a whopping seven, although that includes the two hidden ones that aren't included on the move list. Despite that secrecy, various

were quick to discover both the hidden taunt and the supers that come with them, which IGN has verified independently.

As mentioned, it all starts with the secret taunt. To pull that off, perform Akuma's back taunt by holding back and pressing all six buttons, then mash down on all those buttons. That'll lead to a taunt that sees Akuma eating a rice ball, and once he's finished his snack, you can perform the two hidden supers, which you can see below (along with some helpful instructions from my colleague Mitchell Saltzman):

The first is done by doing two quarter circles back and pressing kick. This one is actually a call back to Kage’s V-Trigger 1 in Street Fighter 5, Rikudo Osatsu. The other one is performed by pressing down, down, and all three punch buttons, and it's essentially his super move from Street Fighter 5.

That’s not all, though! While in this state, he can also unleash his classic double air fireballs by doing quarter circle back and two punches while jumping forward in the air, and it doesn't even cost meter.

As mentioned, Akuma entered the Street Fighter 6 fray in an update just earlier today, which has led to a spike in interest for the fighting game. According to

, there were 70k players on Steam just earlier today, quite the jump from the 5k-25k that were playing in the days prior to the update. Akuma's a bit of a classic boss for the Street Fighter series, having been introduced all the back in Street Fighter II, so it's little surprise the see fans psyched for his addition.

IGN gave Street Fighter 6

, with Saltzman writing at the time, "Street Fighter 6 is the most feature-rich a Street Fighter has ever been at launch, but even beyond that, it's roster of 18 characters is excellent, the new mechanics revitalize the one-on-one fighting formula, and it absolutely nails all of the little things that make for a stellar fighting game."
