"We'll find a way to make sure that console fans are happy, as well," Killian noted at last night's launch party in Los Angeles. Sadly, he wouldn't go into specifics on when or how the additional dozen would be added to the console version. The 12 characters in question are Street Fighter's Elena, Guy, Cody, Sakura, Dudley and Blanka, and Tekken's Alisa, Christie, Jack, Brian, Lars and Lei.
Update: Reader Joel wrote in to tell us about this interview, where Capcom's Yoshinori Ono promised all content updates in Street Fighter X Tekken would be offered as DLC, intimating that these 12 characters would be no exception -- it would seem they'll come to consoles as DLC. We'll hear more in April when Capcom holds its annual Captivate event.
