Put Down Your Pitchforks, Arcade Version of Street Fighter IV is DLC
For those of you worrying that you’ll have to triple-dip (or quadruple-dip if you picked up the 3DS version) to get the additions provided by the recently revealed Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, breathe a sigh of relief.
Revealed in a allegedly leaked video (which as of this posting has been removed) from Capcom’s Captivate event was the fact that this “new version” is going to be available as downloadable content for those already possessing Super Street Fighter IV. The DLC will include 4 new characters (Evil Ryu, Yun, Yang, and Oni), a replay theater, and various character rebalancing fixes. Those who opt for the upgrade will still be able to play against their tighter-budgeted friends.
Price and release date are still yet to be determined.
