Ono: all Street Fighter X Tekken updates will be DLC

Future disc-based expansion ruled out.

Any expansions to forthcoming crossover brawler Street Fighter X Tekken will be delivered as DLC rather than as a full disc-based release, according to Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono.

Speaking in an interview with Gematsu, Ono explained that if Capcom does decide to add additional fighters or game modes post-launch, they'll do so digitally, as was the case with Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

"If we decide to create a new version of the game, we will go with the Street Fighter IV series route, by providing online update patches for the game," he explained, when asked if he's concerned that prospective purchasers might choose to wait for a Super Street Fighter X Tekken release further down the road.

"So I would say that you don't really need to worry about a new version of the game coming out. If we choose to update the game, it will be done in the same fashion as Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition."
