Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono has confirmed that any expansions to Street Fighter X Tekken will firmly remain in the realm of downloadable content, rather than a disc-based release.
The company has a knack of releasing updates to their trademark brawlers as seperate disc-based entities, but this will not be the case with SFxTekken according to Ono:
“If we decide to create a new version of the game, we will go with the Street Fighter IV series route, by providing online update patches for the game.
“So I would say that you don’t really need to worry about a new version of the game coming out. If we choose to update the game, it will be done in the same fashion as Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.”
Hooray for not being gouged!
