Street Fighter IV’s Post-Launch DLC Schedule


Street Fighter IV isn’t even out yet and already Capcom has an extensive lineup of downloadable content planned out to supplement the game up to a month after it’s launch on February 17th. Think of that what you will…

The lineup includes a FREE Championship Mode expansion pack containing a replay feature, two additional points systems and enhanced tournament matching (stuff that should’ve been in the game to begin with, which is probably why it’s a free add-on), and a series of five weekly costume packs each containing alternate costumes for five different characters at the price of 320 MS Points / $3.99 a pop. Read on for full details on all the planned DLC and a gallery of 50 screenshots showing off some of the alternate character outfits.

Championship Mode Expansion Pack:

* Replay Mode – Record, upload, and download top matches to share with the Street Fighter IV community. Players can analyze top tiered fighters matches, leave voter feedback for others, and share their own triumphant victories.
