No more 'Super Ultra' editions for this fighting game.
In honor of Evo 2015, Capcom has announced new details about how the publisher will handle post-launch content for 'Street Fighter V.' Long story short: You can pay for the content if you want, but you won't have to.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Capcom detailed its new currency system for 'Street Fighter V' and how it will relate to post-launch content. Updates like balance tweaks and general gameplay changes will be distributed free to all players so that the entire community stays on the same page in terms of game mechanics. Other additions to the game, such as new characters, will be available to purchase using one of two types of currency. Fight Money is earned simply by playing the game. Play the game enough, and you'll be able to pick up new characters that catch your eye for no charge.
If players find a DLC character that they love but don't want to go to the trouble to stockpile enough Fight Money, they can purchase Zenny—the other in-game currency—with real money and use that to purchase content.
It's tough to say at this time how much Fight Money in terms of gameplay hours DLC characters will cost, but it's nice to know that dedicated players who love the game will only have to buy a single disc and will still be able to experience everything the game has, and will have, to offer.
'Street Fighter V' will launch with 16 playable fighters, four of whom will be new to the series.
