Oh dear. Just when you thought Capcom’s DLC shenanigans may be a thing of the past, it has emerged that the company may be up to their old tricks by including all of the Street Fighter X Tekken DLC characters on disc, and more.
The game is not due out until later this week, but Xbox 360 hackers have already got hold of some copies and have explored the inner depths of the disc. To everyone’s surprise (or not), the DLC characters that are supposed to be included on the PS Vita and won’t be included on console at launch have been located and outed in spectacular fashion on YouTube.
A whole barrage of media is now available to view, clips detailing DLC character gameplay, intro videos and even the ending videos as well. Unsurprisingly, Capcom are yet to comment on this but they are trying to remove the videos from YouTube as we speak.
Just to clarify, these DLC characters have been announced for console already, but it is very unlikely that they will be coming at launch, since we guessing Sony has some exclusive agreement in place so they appear on the PS Vita version first. These are twelve separate DLC characters that the Vita will get, and all 12 have been located on the Xbox 360 disc.
Capcom definitely has some explaining to do here. If they were planning to charge a fee for these on console, it is probably a good idea to make them free now as it does look like they have well and truly been rumbled. If you were planning to pick up the game this week on console, let us know your thoughts on this.
What should be the next step for Capcom? You can find all of the videos on YouTube easily if you want to check out the DLC characters early, including Megaman – Below is one example of his intro video already on disc.
