Capcom is going to release it’s first batch of DLC characters for Street Fighter X Tekken a lot sooner than previously thought. They have decided against waiting for the Vita version to launch, and will instead release the DLC pack on July 31st. It will only be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, and will cost $20 and 1600 MSP respectively.
For that price tag you get Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Guy, Sakura, and Elena from Street Fighter, as well as Bryan, Fury, Jack, Alisa, Lars, Lei, and Christie from the Tekken universe. These characters may not be too surprising to some, as they were found to be on the Street Fighter X Tekken disc, which is still a matter of controversy among enthusiasts.
The release of this pack will also coincide with a patch that will change the following according to Capcom Unity,
-Ryu, Ken and Akuma’s Tatsumaki Sempuu kyaku have all had their hitboxes reduced in size
-Rolento’s jabs addressed!
-Xiaoyu’s crouching hard kick phoenix loops
-Raven crouching HP loops
-Auto-block gem has been re-balanced
