Street Fighter X Tekken: New character rumors tease Akuma, Ogre

By Alan Ng - Jan 30, 2012

We have yet more details on DLC-related info for the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken crossover brawler game now, which is set to hit consoles and PC in March. You may have been shocked with the inclusion of Megaman and Pac-man, but now we have some possible new characters that may be joining the game as well.

If you missed the news about the original Megaman that will be appearing in the game on March 6th, you can read about that again here. The news caused quite a stir since fans wont be seeing Megaman in his traditional attire, but rather a 1980’s model which is actually based on box art for the original Megaman game.

Now though, we’ve come across a particularly dogdy-looking report over at the ‘Hadoken’ blog, which claims to have a full list of the DLC schedule that will take place for the game after release. As you can imagine, the list includes a vast collection of costume packs that are set to release as DLC, but if the information is true, then we could also be seeing no fewer than six new characters enter the game as well.

Four of them have been named as Cody, Guy, Christie and Leo in a ‘New Challenger’s Pack‘, while another pack allegedly titled ‘X Unlocker’ will release as well – containing two notable additions in Akuma and Ogre. However, information included with the Akuma and Ogre reveal suggests that players may have the opportunity of buying them straight away, or playing through the game and unlocking them in due course. If this information is true and that you can unlock them, then it’s obviously pretty ridiculous to think that players will still want to buy this if they are included in the game anyway – shame on Capcom, or shame on the foolish player?


Since the information has obviously yet to be confirmed by Capcom, you should take it with a very large pinch of salt until we see some concrete evidence. Ogre is certainly a nice addition though if that turns out to be true – what do you think folks?
