They were already announced. All the DLC characters will be in the Vita version day one and console owners will have to pay for them.

Curious to see how Jack turns out.

@JJOR64: I know but the story intros are new.

That's what passes for prologues nowadays?!

#6 Posted by drac96 (670 posts) -

@TeflonBilly: These seem kind of weird and awkward. All the other intros are voiced. I'm going to guess that these will have voice in them when the game is released.

I do not think Capcom has ruled out an "SFxT Ultimate Edition" for consoles. They only stated that all future offers will be available as DLC for people who purchased the original game. Obviously it would be silly to allude to an UE now when their hope is to sell as many retail priced games and DLC packs as possible. We will probably not get a final comment on this until after the DLC has all been release.

What do you expect a new DLC character to cost? SSFIV costumes alone are $5 per set of 5 ($18 if you buy all 35 costumes but remember these discounted sets where not made available until after all the smaller packs were released). AE dlc, which added 4 new characters, was $15. A new character in KoF XIII, which is essentially an existing character with a different move set, is $5.

Based on the previews it definitely feels like new characters will be sold in pairs. My guess is each pair will run you $8 on day of its release with two larger sets of six, one Tekken and one SF, being sold for $18 each after all the characters are released. The absolute cheapest I see Capcom selling all 12 new character for is $30 and that is being very optimistic. For me it is almost worth waiting 9 mo. to see if there is talk of a special edition disc - which typically retails below the cost of new releases.

@Lnin0: This is a quote from an interview on event hubs. The whole thing can be found here.

"There will be only one disc release of the game and updates will be via DLC. He said that, just like SSF4 and SSF4 AE, there will be an option for those with the updated DLC version of the game to choose the older version so they can play with those people (If you have AE, you can choose to play just SSF4). So, you still need the most updated version of the game to play with all the new features."

They seem pretty serious about there not being multiple versions of this game. As for the DLC prices it was leaked a while ago that the packs would most likely be 4 characters for $10. Who would be in each pack was leaked also, but none of that has been confirmed yet. It seems to be true though, since all the characters were the ones from the Vita version.

I'm going to assume that these are on the disk or something? The lack of narration at least implies that they're unfinished, so we can at the very least have an assurance that these 12 new characters are *probably* actual downloadables.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. In any event, I'm getting them all even if I won't seriously play any beyond Sakura and Bryan. XD

#11 Posted by obscurefan (282 posts) -

This is a tad odd. I mean it looks official and all, but the other character prologues had voice acting and a narrator, so I'm wondering what is up with these. Are they just here for promotion and then when the game comes out we'll get a real version?

#12 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Hggn! I want that game right nao! , hopefully Capcom sells each character separately I don't want to buy Blanka just so I can get Sakura also I don't care about Jack but I like me some Bryan Fury the other 3 duos are fine, no Leo though

hopefully they'll have Yun and Yang later down the line too :D

#15 Posted by Tan (425 posts) -

Really don't get how there'll be those extra 12 on vita, but they'll be DLC for consoles? And some not even Day 1 DLC?

#16 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

@Tan: it's probably because Vita gets there game a month later...? im just glad they get to be on consoles at all!

#17 Edited by WebOfSomething (51 posts) -

It looks like everybody has two alternate costumes. Cody and Guy:

#19 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

so each character in the game have two alternates? or are the alternates dlc too...?

I don't see why Capcom would change how they've delivered their alternate costumes since SF4. It's most likely DLC.

They've always been DLC.

#22 Posted by JJOR64 (18988 posts) -

I'm happy that Megaman and Pac Man are coming to 360 at some point.

#23 Posted by Zanetsu (131 posts) -

@Bestostero: The Vita release is scheduled for September. So it's more than just one month.

#24 Edited by TooWalrus (13195 posts) -

Guy, Cody, Dudley... I miss M. Bison :-(

EDIT: Oh man! M. Bison was totally announced! How rad is that!

You do realize what this means, right? At some point we will be able to see tournament level Mega Man play.

Well, I guess they weren't lying when they said that there wouldn't be another disk... because all the characters are on the disk anyways. I'm kind of not surprised at this point.

#27 Posted by Buttenator (189 posts) -

It was already blatantly obvious that the Vita characters were all on the disc to begin with. The ESRB only rates content on the disc and their description gave Lei and Alisa away a while back.

Yep, and PacMan as well. Now I'm just curious if 360 owners will have to pay for them or not.

#29 Posted by SomeScrub (49 posts) -

Fuck yeah Bryan and jack-6, fight for that box!

#30 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

oohhhh interesting.... so megaman and pacman are going to 360 as well, but that still doesnt necessarily mean they are tournament legal! a lot of dlc characters are banned from tournaments, have to wait and see what the call is...

#31 Posted by LaserLambert (167 posts) -

damn Bryan and Jack --- two of the only Tekken characters i like --- are DLC? and Blanka and Cody? gahhhhhhh! maannn!

#32 Posted by shotgunsullivan (29 posts) -

#33 Posted by WebOfSomething (51 posts) -

Guy, Cody and some costumes

#34 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

oooooooo... i want to play Cody :(

i really like his alternate with the cop uniform, hope we dont have to wait too long for the dlc lol

#35 Posted by WebOfSomething (51 posts) -

And here's Blanka

#36 Posted by PufferFiz (1379 posts) -

Really guys REALLY your going to put up with DLC that is already on the disk.

#37 Edited by Jaytow (694 posts) -

I will buy whatever ultimate version of this game is out in 2 years from now.

#38 Posted by Drakoji (222 posts) -

@Jaytow: Even if it's the same freakin' disc that they release tuesday but only with everything unlocked?

#39 Posted by Jaytow (694 posts) -

@Drakoji: Hmm I guess they would add more stuff for a super/ultra version though, right? I'll have to wait and see.

#40 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

is anyone suprised the characters are on the disk.

#41 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

a lot of people charge for dlc that is already available on disc...plus this is capcom so lol

#42 Posted by Drakoji (222 posts) -

No, but I still find it wrong.

For me this is Capcom stealing my money (or trying) because if I buy a product, and it comes on a disk, I payed for the whole content on that disk, I paid money for the content of that DVD.

I should have access to all of it's content.

#43 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

it definitely sucks, but i am more than willing to pay if it gets me cody...lol

im mad, but im too excited...ultimately, i think it will come down to pricing.

My thoughts exactly.

It's a disgusting practice but I was planning on throwing money at this game for costumes or whatever anyways.

Capcom still continuing to be the shittiest developer/producer next to EA. I'll pirate or rent the game if I ever feel like playing a SF clone with some rehashed mechanics.

#47 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

@PixelPrinny: lol

#48 Posted by Drakoji (222 posts) -

@StarvingGamer: I would rather have them unlocked when I buy the goddamn game.

#49 Posted by NinjaHunter (973 posts) -

For those crying foul, I have a rebuttal: Mortal Kombat.

#50 Posted by PufferFiz (1379 posts) -

@StarvingGamer: I don't get it. if your going to play online anyways just have a forced patch.
