Some Street Fighter X Tekken character DLC may exist on disc, Elena playable via glitch

Jordan Mallory

So, you know how the Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken is launching this fall with 12 bonus characters, and that those fighters are coming to the console versions as DLC? Well, it looks like at least one of them may already be on the 360 version. Awkward.

In the video above, YouTube user SoulReaperTTG demonstrates a glitch that allows the player to select Elena (one of the 12 DLC characters) and fight with her normally. While we don't know how the glitch actually works, it appears to be based on tricking the game into loading Elena's character data instead of Poison's. This isn't Poison wearing Elena's skin, either; anyone familiar with Third Strike will instantly recognize Elena's moves as being distinctly her own.

SoulReaperTTG's channel also features prologue videos for some of the DLC characters, supposedly recovered from the 360 version of the game. Now, because the game isn't actually out yet, we have no way of knowing if the retail version actually shipped with this content, or if Elena's inclusion is unique to the pre-release version SoulReaperTTG got his hands on. We anticipate extensive sleuthing to commence once the game releases this Tuesday, and have reached out to Capcom for comment.
