In honor of the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter and the launch of the Vita tonight, Capcom has put out an official press release to let everyone know that Street Fighter X Tekken is going to be a big deal on the Vita. How big? Well it looks like Vita owners are going to have access to over a dozen characters that the rest of us home consoles schmucks won't. Now it reads in the press release that

"the retail version of Street Fighter X Tekken will be the only disc-based version consumers will need to own and all future upgrades will come from post-launch DLC".

Well we previously saw a leaked DLC content list that did not include any additional characters. So the Vita version will be the only version to feature Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy and Sakura from Street Fighter and Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack, Lars Alexandersson and Lei Wulong from Tekken. At least based on what we know at this point. Elena and Dudley are my Third Strike characters?! Well doesn't that suck...
