Downloadable Content - Street Fighter X Tekken Characters
Fighting fans asked, well, practically begged for it, and it has finally happened! In 2012, Street Fighter x Tekken (Xbox 360, Playstation 3) was released, giving players the chance to finally see who would win in a fight betweent Capcom's Ryu and Namco's Kazuya Mishima. The game has a playable roster consisting of thirty eight characters. Fan favorites such as Blanka and Bryan Fury were absent from the game, much to their disappointment. However, in July, that changed. Capcom incresed the number of playable to fifty! Twelve extra characters were added to the game, six from Tekken and six from Street Fighter.
Street Fighter characters:
- Sakura Kasugano
- Cody Travers
- Lars Alexandersson
- Alisa Bosconovitch
- Christie Monteiro
- Lei Wulong
- Bryan Fury
As great as the content is, Capcom faced controversy from gamers and reviewers. These additional characters seen on the character select screen, but you have to pay for the content in order to play as them. I did not realize this until I bought the game myself a few months after its release. I, and surely others, hope that Namco will not do the same when they release Tekken x Street Fighter.
The additional characters pack can be downloaded on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,600 Microsoft Points and on the Playstation Network for $19.99 US.
