The lights are on
Given the current state of gaming, it's no surprise that Capcom is planning on releasing DLC for the recently released DLG Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition. The game's producer has provided details on what specifically is in the works, and it's a surprisingly varied lineup.
The first pack, revealed on a post on Capcom's community site, is launching next week. Color Pack 1 will give each of the game's characters seven new costume colors. It's coming September 6 and 7 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and it'll set players back $2.99/240 Microsoft Points. There are a few caveats, however. If you're fighting online against someone who hasn't purchased the DLC, they won't be able to admire your spiffy threads. Also, the color palettes won't appear in replay files. OK then.
The next few packs are thankfully a bit more interesting. Within the next few months, players will be able to purchase a set of music packs, which add all of the character themes from Street Fighter III: New Generation and Street Fighter III: Second Impact. Finally, players will also be able to download several match packs, which each feature more than an hour of top-tier tournament play with full commentary from Street Fighter expert James Chen.
If you're in the mood to spend more money on Street Fighter III, it looks as though Capcom is more than happy to accommodate you this year.

the music would honestly be the only cool pack in my situation having played 3rd strike to death and barely touching the other 2 sf3's.
Mhm, I knew there was going to be some costs to the fluff.
Lol, Capcom. You so crazy. "Hey! Let's see if we can milk our fans even harder! What could possibly go wrong?"
This was always my favorite street fighter game...I need to shell out the cash for it.
i wonder if the parry system work in marvel vs capcom 3.
Shouldn't this be a whole new game?!
the game hasnt even been out a month and it already has dlc, and you cant see the new costumes in replays? yea...thanks capcom.
I just wish the music packs were for removing the terrible songs on the main menu and the character select screen.
I've gotta hand it to Capcom, they really have their art style together. Their games look fantastic.
Well, that's cool. Free cool, not $3 cool.
