On the one hand, I'm disappointed that these characters are DLC. On the other, I hate Christie with every fiber of my being and wish that she and Eddie Gordo would both get tossed into a volcano.

Well, if this story is true, there is your DLC character list for the game proper. Hopefully, the pricing won't amount to us buying the game again.

Well, Capcom gets my money when I get Elena...so if you're reading this Capcom, meet me at Control Point D for the exchange.

Well, this basically confirms that all these characters are DLC, right? However, at $5 a pop that would mean to get them all you would have to spend... $60. Huh. That is more than $40.

SF: Elena, Guy, Cody, Sakura, Dudley and Blanka

Those bold names are going to cause some fans to flip their shit, if they haven't already. If I recall correctly, Guy and Cody were both favorites that people wanted in the main game, so the fact that they have to pay extra for them is gonna rub fans the wrong way.

Then again, it doesn't take much to upset the Capcom fanbase.

I don't much care for the choice of Tekken characters but that's because all the Tekken characters I like are already in SFxT.

All the choices for SF are awesome though I wish Sakura was on disc and wasn't DLC.

I hope the rumour is true that 4 characters are gonna be 5 bucks. and I hope Guy and Cody aren't in the same pack as some cool Tekken characters, because I don't care for them.

So the list that confirmed Elena was true.
 
On one  hand, I am pumped. I love Elena.
 
On the other hand, I am bummed. I would have to buy a Vita.
 
Also, it means that I won't see these characters compete in tourneys, handheld fighters never get any attention. I'd say it's a waste of 12 characters if I wasn't so sure that this time next year we'll be seeing SFxT Ultimate Edition on consoles with ALL of these characters.

Glad I'm getting the Vita version. I've realized with Street Fighter on 3DS I'm more of a portable fighting game dude.

Capcom doesn't want my money. At least they're making it seem that way.

Seeing that Vita version isn't till the fall, I can understand them putting more characters in because they have more time.... which then also means im sure those characters will go to the other versions later as well

No Honda I guess, but then again he can't combo / juggle for shit so I'm not surprised. I imagine Dudley and Guy are going to be able to do some crazy stuff 3-4 months down the line.

Nice to see Elena get some love too, she's always been a cool character and its nice to see her get into the game. Would have been nice to see Q get in there, but whatever.

In the Tekken-verse, you basically just wished them to be boss characters.

My feelings, exactly. I'm really happy Sakura (my SSFIV main) is confirmed, but I hope I don't hafta wait 6 months to get a chance to use her in my team. I'm not raging or stressing out about it though; the roster is already solid and I'll be happy with Xiao/Chun as my main team for the time being.

This game keeps messing with my plans. I'd love to get the PS3 version for the abundant silly guest characters, but the thing is I've got these expensive fightsticks for the 360. Then there's the Vita version which will have all the content including possible DLC right off the bat, but from my experience with SSFIV3D I'll play it a bunch but never get deep into it because of the handheld nature and the lack of proper input like my fightstick. Meh.

Lei Wulong, my trusty friend, we finally meet again.  

  
One of my go-to characters during the hey-days of Tekken 3. Not putting him in the main game? They messed up big time.

BAHAHAHA, no idea why I found that so funny.

I just fucking hope that Capcom gives us some sort of season pass so I don't have to buy all this DLC piecemeal. I totally will, but I'd rather I didn't have to.
