Realising that it’s sitting on a huge cash cow (Street Fighter IV has already sold an astonishing 2 million copies this past week alone) Capcom has revealed that new costumes are on the way to Live Arcade and PSN – for a price of course…
Granted we would much rather get to download Hugo, Elena and Dudley, but having the ability to dress Zangief up in Mike Haggar’s Final Fight attire, or making Fei-Long look like he’s just stepped off the set of Enter the Dragon is arguably the next best thing.
Yes indeedy, the first available pack: The Brawler pack is available to download now and Capcom will be releasing the rest over the following four weeks.
The Brawler pack includes alternate costumes for: Zangief, E.Honda, Rufus, El Fuerte and Abel.
The Femme Fatale pack includes costumes for: Chun-Li, Cammy, Sakura, Rose and C.Viper.
The Shoruken pack includes new suits for: Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken and Dan.
The Shadowloo pack bestows stylish togs upon: Seth, M.Bison, Sagat, Balrog and Vega.
While the Classic and final pack (and the one I most want) contain outfits for: Guile, Dhalsim, Fei-Long, Blanka and Gen.
