New alternate costumes for Street Fighter X Tekken

This is one of the most bizarre yet wonderful ideas I've ever seen for alternate costumes. The key piece of information not revealed in the blog post is "how much is this gonna cost me?". If it's free, I'll be a happy clam. If not, then the price of the outfits will determine my buy-in. I'm guessing it won't be free.

I can totally understand the premium DLC logic though. Fighting games sell to an increasingly smaller audience, but that smaller audience is ultra enthusiastic. If it means supporting a fighting franchise I want to keep alive, I'm willing to shell out a few extra bucks. I would be embarrassed to tell you how much I've spent of Rumble Roses DLC hoping that would spur a third game.

It remains to be seen if SF X Tekken makes me a fanboy enough to pay for DLC.

Soul Calibur V is back on my hot list!

The character creator in SCIV was pretty good, but this one adds the kind of features that really get me excited to see what I can make.

With these tools you should be able to re-create most any  famous characters although the facial feature portion still isn't as robust as some other games.

Hope they soon reveal how and if the PS3 and Vita versions will work with each other.
