With Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition coming out in only a few weeks (August 23rd!), there is still a big question as to what could possibly be hidden inside that Downloadable Content menu that has been in the menu since the E3 2011 build.
The thing that has everyone confused is how can they add DLC to a port of a game that is over 10 years old? If you’re thinking “new characters” or something to that extent, you’re probably reaching too far!
First bit of DLC revealed was at the Evolution Fighting Game Tournament 2011 from Derek Neal that one of the DLCs, titled “Fight for the Future” will be replays (at least, we assume it would be replays) from the private Capcom tournament that was held in their office that brought in 16 different pro 3rd Strike players. Another bit of DLC comes in a form of a unlock key for Gill, the final boss of the game, without the need to fulfill the actual unlock requirement (beat the game with everyone). This was revealed when Sony announced PSN PLAY… which is oddly enough like XBLA’s Summer of Arcade.
I would love to see some more DLCs like old New Generation/2nd Impact Stages/Music and character voices. Weather that would happen or not is… definitely beyond me.
