Street Fighter 6 is one hell of a fighting game, but its DLC price tags have been a bit of a sticking point for some players. Capcom has been pricing its post-launch content fairly high — its Year 1 Ultimate Pass is £50, for example — but its Evo 2023-announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collaboration is the thing that's making headlines.
To be clear, this TMNT DLC consists of outfits for your World Tour and multiplayer lobby avatar — the iconic mutants are not actually playable. But if you want all of these costumes, alongside a bunch of extras like taunts, and in-game wallpapers, you'd need to, er, shell out around $100 / £80 to purchase everything straight up. That's what you'd be paying for two bundles of 2,750 Fighter Coins — Street Fighter 6's premium currency.
It just seems extortionate, doesn't it? The whole thing really hits home when you realise individual TMNT costumes — that is, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, or Michelangelo — cost roughly $15 / £12 each. That kind of pricing isn't unheard of in an industry that's currently dominated by live service models at the highest levels of profit, but it's a shame that such a great game is being packed with such purchases (especially when it's a full price release to begin with).
What do you make of this? Is Capcom seriously overpricing things, or is this just the norm now? Sadly hum the TMNT theme tune in the comments section below.
