Street Fighter X Tekken characters can be accessed without DLC

Posted on March 5, 2012 - 7:40pm by Sean Hinz

Update: I have placed Capcom’s official position on the DLC at the bottom of this post.

Some users over at Shoryuken have already begun to dissect their early copies of Street Fighter X Tekken and have found a number of reveals. The biggest reveal is that Elena and Dudley along with many other characters have been accessed on the home console versions. We previously reported this, but now have access to the video. It looks like for Elena, the Poison character select was altered and revealed Elena. Here is that video.

As to the specifics behind characters like Sakura or Dudley, I am not sure how they were accessed at this point. Here is a short video showcasing some of their team-based Super Combos.

They are still pumping out more and more videos, so be sure to head over to Shoryuken and get your fill. Street Fighter X Tekken comes out tomorrow.

Capcom's Official Response:

“The character information and files were intentionally included on retail versions of the PS3 and Xbox 360 game to save hard drive space and to ensure for a smooth transition when the DLC is available, allowing players who choose not to purchase the content the ability to play against players that did… More specifics regarding pricing, dates and other additional exciting DLC plans for Street Fighter X Tekken will be shared at a later date. As a reminder, the retail version of the game will be the only disc-based version consumers will need to own and all future upgrades will come from post-launch DLC.”
