SHORT & SWEET: STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN CHARACTER DLC REVIEW
The new character DLC for Street Fighter X Tekken promises a whole lot more action in the form of 12 additional fighters, bringing the roster up to a whopping 50 total challengers! With 6 characters taken from each franchise, Capcom aimed to please fans who felt their favorite was initially absent.
These characters are: (from Street Fighter) Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, Sakura; and (from Tekken) Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson, and Lei Wulong.
- Adds 12 more characters to the roster.
- Feels like getting a whole other game.
- Lots of new moves and combinations to perfect.
- Gives the game a fresh and newer feeling again.
- The $20 doesn’t include all costumes. You still have to buy the additional costumes for the new characters.
- Even with 50 characters to choose from there’s not an E. Honda in sight (one of my favorites).
- New characters don’t provide as much variety in gameplay as you would hope, especially when characters such as Sakura and Elena have abilities that are simliar to existing characters.
- Capcom didn’t fix any of the balancing issues with the DLC and with the addition of Jack-X and Bryan, they made it worse. I tore through many opponents within 20 seconds using this powerful duo.
$20 may not seem like much but it means that if you originally paid full price for this game, you would have spent $80 total to unlock all the characters.
With the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Box Set coming out in September gamers may want to wait and purchase it to get the full experience. It not only has the full version of Street Fighter X Tekken (all characters and costumes) but it comes with four other Street Fighter games and a ton of other goodies for only $149.99.
Bottom line, if you haven’t purchased Street Fighter X Tekken yet and want the full experience I’d wait for the Box Set. If you already own the game and are ready for more action then this DLC is perfect for you.
Street Fighter X Tekken Character DLC is available for $19.99 on the PlayStation 3 or 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360. This review was based on time spent playing using a review code provided by Capcom.

NEW TEKKEN MOVIE DIRECTED BY ONG-BAK DIRECTOR
Unlike the director of the original Tekken movie (who directed ‘classics’ such as numerous Free Willy sequels), Sky Pictures has recruited Prachya Pinkaew of Chocolate and Ong-Bak fame to direct the upcoming Tekken movie.
Pinkaew has expressed a stance that he will be looking for actors who look more similar to the characters rather than the bankability of big name actors in Tekken: Rise of the Tournament.
If you have doubts about the fight scenes from the upcoming movie, do yourself a favor and watch this scene from his film The Protector which contains a four minute fight sequence that is a dude fighting through dozens of thugs with no cuts or edits. Awesome.
