Street Fighter III Online Getting A Blast Of Color

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.
