Capcom have announced the Street Fighter x Tekken character DLC release date. The downloadable content adds an additional 12 fighters to SFxT, including Blanka, Sakura, Guy, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Jack, Bryan Fury, Alisa, Lars, Lei and Christie. The pack will be released on July 31 for 1600 MSP/$20.
“As for the PS Vita version, the 12 characters and alternate costumes for the core 38 characters will be available as free downloads,” said Capcom. “The 12 new fighters have alt costumes available as a pre-order incentive at GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon, and all DLC purchased can be shared between PS3 and Vita.” Meaning, if you want to wait for the PS Vita version of the game you can get all 12 characters for free.
Along with new fighters, SFxT will be getting a small patch on July 31. Here's a list of the fixes:
- Ryu, Ken and Akuma’s Tatsumaki Sempuu kyaku have all had their hitboxes reduced in size.
- Rolento’s jabs addressed.
- Xiaoyu’s crouching hard kick phoenix loops.
- Raven crouching HP loops.
- Auto-block gem has been re-balanced.
I'm not a huge fan of on-disc DLC, but 12 characters is a lot to pass up. Will you be picking up this character DLC when it drops later in July?
