This year is no different as different companies get into the mood. Today we will be looking at the various fighting game companies who is celebrating April Fools 2024.

Using the Japanese name of Akuma, Gouki, (“ごうき“), they made a joke with the Japanese city of Gamaguki (“がまごうき“). While it might be harder for international fans to catch the joke, it is a nice nod to the Japanese scene who has been growing over the past few months.
