Arcade Edition DLC Possible In Super Street Fighter IV 3D


This past week, Capcom conducted a live video Q&A with Street Fighter IV producer, Yoshinori Ono, so he could address fan questions about the upcoming Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition on the Nintendo 3DS.


One of the very first questions dove right into a subject that’s bound to be on the minds of a few that are interesting in picking the game up — is it possible to have the additional characters and tweaks from the Arcade Edition version in Japan to be offered as downloadable content, similar to consoles?


While Ono didn’t reply with an outright yes or no, he did say that offering post-launch DLC on the 3DS was technically feasible, and that if fans demanded it enough, Capcom would looking into updating the game with the Arcade Edition content.


Ono also confirmed that non-Japanese copies of Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition would only come with English voices on the cartridge due to space limitations. Nintendo 3DS cartridges at launch can only hold 2GB of data.
