The PlayStation Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken was supposed to see 12 new playable characters before they were added to the console and PC versions of the game. However, there’s been a slight change in plans, Capcom announced this evening—the 12 additions to the roster are coming to consoles this month.
Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, Sakura from the Street Fighter side and Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson, Lei Wulong from the Tekken side will be available as DLC on July 31st for $20 (or 1600 Microsoft Points).
For folks holding out for the PlayStation Vita version of the game, the first print run of all retail copies of Street Fighter X Tekken on Vita will come with two free download for DLC. One code will net you the 12 new characters while the other will get you free alternate costumes for the original 38 fighters. You’ll be able to share all DLC between the Vita and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.
Additionally, pre-ordering Street Fighter X Tekken on Vita will also allow you to avail alternate costumes for the 12 new characters.
Finally, along with the Street Fighter X Tekken DLC characters for consoles, Capcom will release a balance patch for the game that addresses issues such as Rolento’s jabs, re-balancing of the auto-block gem and more.
