Might as well deliver the new characters early, right?
Originally, Capcom had planned to release 12 new characters for the console versions of Street Fighter X Tekken after the Vita iteration hit this fall. But the publisher has announced they're jumpin' the gun.
Those characters will be coming out on July 31 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game in question. The 12-fighter DLC pack will retail for $19.99 (or 1600 Microsoft Points), and that will bring the total roster number in the well-received title to an even 50. Here are the additions; you'll likely recognize the names:
Street Fighter Camp: Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, Sakura
Tekken: Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson, Lei Wulong
The more characters the better. Of course, we're not sure how the fans will respond to the price; $20 for 12 characters might seem a little pricey, depending on your point of view. The hardcore fighting aficionados might not think it's too bad, though; after all, it takes a lot of time to master all those new characters…
