Capcom Spells Out Street Fighter X Tekken's DLC Plans
Posted by Sammy Barker
Not all cheap
Street Fighter X Tekken fans aren’t happy. Shortly after the game’s release, hackers uncovered that much of the title’s DLC content was already included on the disc. That led to outrage, causing fans to ponder why they must pay extra to gain access to content that’s already finished.
There are legitimate reasons of course. Bad things happen if you attempt to play online with people that don’t have access to the same DLC content as you do, and so, from that stance it makes sense to store the goods on the disc. But even when presented with that theory, gamers aren't happy.
Capcom is trucking along with its plans regardless. The publisher's announced that on 3rd April its crossover brawler will get a new set of costumes available for $1 apiece or $13 for the full set. Those of you too angry to pay out will get access to a bunch of free colours for customisation and three new quick combo slots for each new fighter. That’s something, huh?
There’s more: after April Capcom will release a free tournament support update which will make it easier to select gems at the character select screen using a kind of “dial system”. Following that is a title update that will add "three new Assist Gem packs and six new Boost Gem packs, which add over 60 gems to the selection pool”. Each character will also get three more customisable gem sets, bringing the tally for each fighter up to five.
Finally, the additional 12 characters confirmed for the PlayStation Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken will launch on consoles shortly after the portable title’s release. They’ll cost you, er, $20. Feel free to sound off in the comments.
