KIRBIYISM: "- Alt. Costumes are available only in 5-character 400-MS-point DLC packs, one new pack every week as follows:
Grapplers Pack - Zangief, E Honda, Rufus, Abel, El Fuerte (Feb 12) Beauty Pack - Chun Li, C.Viper, Sakura, Rose, Cammy (Feb 19) Shoryuken Pack - Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Gouken, Dan (Feb 26) Shadoloo Pack - Dictator, Sagat, Claw, Boxer, Seth (March 5) Classic Pack - Guile, Blanka, Dhalsim, Gen, Fei Long (March 12) All-In Pack - Get everyone at a discount (1000 MS Points; available from April 30th)
- On day one, when you put in the disc you'll be prompted to download an update that will give you a Championship mode, which facilities play in a tournament format, allowing you to earn more Grade Points. Clearly this is for Ranked match... but I don't see anything that says if there is an unranked/player-match Championship mode.
- Championship mode, as with Ranked and Player matches, can be played using the Arcade-interrupt method (or whatever it's called; under player profile, there's an Arcade-interrupt setting that you can change)
- If you rank in for Championship mode, or any of the Challenge modes (I think; the text is not very clear), you can choose to upload your replay file. Replay files can be viewed by anyone.
