Street Fighter III DLC plans revealed

Match packs, extra music, new colours.

A number of DLC packs are on their way to Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online, Capcom has announced.

According to a post on the Capcom Unity blog, the enigmatically titled Colour Pack 1 is first up, due out next week. The download adds seven (count 'em) new colours for each character. They're yours for a mere $2.99.

Slightly more appealing are two Match Packs planned for later this year, featuring footage from the recent "Fight for the Future" tournament which saw 16 high level SF3 players from around the world converge on Capcom HQ to duke it out.

One pack focuses on the tournament top eight, while the other is a "best bouts" compilation. Expect over an hour of content in each, including commentary from Street Fighter veteran James Chen.

Finally, a set of Music Packs will include classic character themes from Street Fighter III: New Generation and Street Fighter III: Second Impact. Expect that some time in the next few months.

Capcom's tweaked 1999 arcade classic launched on PSN and Xbox Live Arcade last week, picking up a 9/10 from Eurogamer's Simon Parkin. See his Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online review for more.
