Street Fighter IV producer struggling to get DLC approved for consoles

Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono recently revealed plants to propose that the extra arcade fighters for the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV be brought over to consoles as DLC. Unfortunately, it seems that Capcom isn’t ready to introduce the two new arcade characters, Yun and Yang, to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.

“I couldn’t get approval from [upper level staff], but I’ll continue [the] proposal!’ said Ono via Twitter. “I got approval from my boss, Keiji Inafune, but I can’t [get] it from [upper level staff].”

Yun and Yang first appeared in Street Fighter III. The twin fighters are playable characters in the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV. But for now, it seems that that their migration to the console versions of the game has been put on hold.

    I wish they would add the new characters for DLC. BlazBlue:Continuum Shift creators have already jumped on that concept. I've already got two of the DLC characters for that game (Makoto & Valkenhayn). I believe hardcore Super Street Fighter IV players like myself would be grateful for the opportunity to get new DLC characters!

    Capcom is playing their cards appropriately.. Gotta let arcade locations make their profits. It's like releasing a movie on DVD before the theaters get their chance to sell their tickets.

    don't really like these characters so i don't really care

    Why do they not want them as DLC? Simple, Super Turbo Street Fighter 4 won't sell as much otherwise....

    Anyone else think the guy with the rollerblades looks like Trowa Barton?

    LOL Ampatent got to my point faster. Remember, changes are NOT final.
  • Crimmy - October 11, 2010 11:47 p.m.

    If the balances are included, I'm not getting it. I don't like Cammy getting weaker. But I do think Ampatent is right.

    There's still (probably) another 6 DLC characters on the way, so anyone who's complaining about Yun and Yang getting chosen need not worry about them being the only new characters. That said, this is really just a marketing thing. The DLC WILL come to the consoles, but it has to stay exclusive to the arcade for a while in order to make the Arcade Edition of Super Street Fighter IV worth while. Capcom would NEVER make content exclusive for a system that has such a small user base, even with the arcade still alive in Japan. Bottom line... just give it time.

    The only DLC I want is Mike Haggar!

    @ Amnesiac - qft! Yun and Yang = FLOP lol bye bitch x
  • Amnesiac - October 11, 2010 8:42 p.m.

    Maybe it would get approval if were two characters that were actually interesting?
  • sutrebla15 - October 11, 2010 8:12 p.m.

    This has to come out for DLC. It's pretty dumb to just have it arcade exclusive.

    paganpoet, you have a good point there. Why isnt Elena in there, while we are on the Thirdstrike group how about Oro?
  • MyNameIsMyName - October 11, 2010 7:48 p.m.

    Why wouldn't Capcom want to add new characters? Also while on the subject will we ever ge to play as Blondie and the Brother from Street Fighter 2's opening?
  • paganpoet - October 11, 2010 7:26 p.m.

    Still (naively) holding out hope for Elena. Isn't she the only African character to be in a SF game as well?
  • KiwiCommander - October 11, 2010 7:24 p.m.

    First... no R Mika... So sad. Personally I think its fine without those two characters. I would like to see R Mika, Karin, Sodom, or Rolento.
