A recent scan (pictured above) from a ps3 dedicated magazine has surfaced today. In it, a confirmation that Alt costumes for the characters in SF4 will be pyable DLC content.
I know that this will make a lot of people mad, but in the arcades Alt costumes were acquired by purchasing them with the virtual "zeny" currency, which was obtained by playing matches. Meaning the more coins you toss up in the machine the more zenys you get. So the alts were not free on the arcade either, therefore it is not really a surprise that they are payable dlc in the home version.
I personaly just hope there will be more than just one Alt outfit per character, i want to see gym teacher Sakura, Ryu in a white shirt and jeans as in the sf2v anime, Ken wearing a suite, and finally Gouken in his blue gi that he wears in the anime flashback when he fights Akuma. Make it happen Capcom!
What do you guys think?
