Costume DLC for SFIV at launch

Five outfits per three-quid pack.

Capcom plans to release extra costume packs for Street Fighter IV in Japan, starting on launch day (Friday 12th February) and continuing every subsequent Friday for the next four weeks.

That's according to the latest issue of Famitsu (spotted by 1UP), which says each bundle will cost 320 Microsoft Points (GBP 2.70 / EUR 3.85) on Xbox 360, or JPY 400 (GBP 3 / EUR 3.50) on PlayStation 3.

The first pack to arrive will be Muscle Arms containing alternate threads for big and beefy characters Zangief, E. Honda, Rufus, Abel and El Fuerte.

The Beauty bundle will follow, adding attire for pretty punchers Chun Li, C. Viper, Sakura, Rose and Cammy.

Then we'll see the Shoryuken pack, which has new outfits for fireball-wielders Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken and Dan.

Baddies come next, as the Shodaloo pack gives Vega, Sagat, Balrog, Bison and Seth something to change into.

And, last but not least, there's the Classic collection: called so presumably because Capcom ran out of themes. This features extra wear for Guile, Blanka, Dhalsim, Gen and Fei Long.

At the end of April, both sets of owners will be able to download all the extra costumes for a lump sum of 1000 MSP (GBP 8.50 / EUR 12.00) / JPY 1200 (GBP 9.30 / EUR 10.50).

Capcom Europe will make DLC announcements shortly, a spokesperson for the publisher told Eurogamer.

Street Fighter IV launches for Xbox 360 and PS3 here on 20th February.
