I’m terribly excited for Capcom’s and Namco’s crossover fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken which pits fighters from both game universes with a Street Fighter-esque game mechanic. It looks – and plays – incredibly well, striking a beautiful balance between the two, rather different fighting games. What I’m not so excited for is the game’s inevitable deluge of pointless, cash-sucking DLC.

The first wave of DLC has apparently been leaked – and if true, cements Capcom as one of the industry worst offenders for misuse and abuse of DLC systems.

According the Hadoken.net, here’s what you’ll be able to unlock by spending some real-life money.

  • Boost Gem Pack 1 – $2.99
    Includes 9 new gems to equip to your characters.
  • Boost Gem Pack 2 – $2.99
    Includes 9 new gems to equip to your characters.
  • Color Edit Pack 1 – FREE
    Includes 4 new colors to use in the Color Edit mode.
  • Costume Swap S Pack – $9.99
    Includes a new costume for each of the Street Fighter characters, based on a Tekken character.
  • Costume Swap T Pack – $9.99
    Includes a new costume for each of the Tekken characters, based on a Street Fighter character.
  • Costume Swap X Pack – $15.99
    A combination of the S Pack and T Pack – Includes new costumes for each character, based on characters from the opposite series.
  • New Challengers Pack – $7.99
    Adds 4 new characters to the game: Cody, Guy, Christie and Leo.
  • X Unlocker – $4.99
    Unlocks two secret characters, Akuma and Ogre, as well as all additional character colors and special modes without having to perform the in-game tasks to unlock them.

The words “rape” and “milking” quickly come to mind. These are horrible and overpriced – but hardly out of character for Capcom, who’re only too happy to milk franchises for everything they’re worth and charge ludicrous amounts of money for things as pointless as palette-swaps and in-game cheats so it’s entirely possible this list is true.

I hope its not.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
