The lights are on
At Capcom's panel at Evo 2013, the publisher announced that five new characters are coming to Street Fighter IV, as well as six new stages, and balance updates in the form of DLC.
The DLC will be $15, and will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Familiar characters Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison will be available to add to the game, as well as a fifth new not-yet-revealed character.

Our TakeStreet Fighter IV released back in 2009, meaning the game is four years old, and it sounds like it might hit five by the time this DLC releases. Most games wouldn't still be receiving support so long after release, but in many ways Street Fighter IV isn't a typical game. Capcom knows players are still hopelessly addicted to the game, and it's rewarding long-term players for their perseverance.
