Super Street Fighter IV DLC to add five new characters, more

Five characters, six stages, and balance updates planned for $15 add-on.

Capcom is bringing five new fighters to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012. Rolento, Elena, Hugo, and Poison, as well as a fifth unannounced fighter never before seen in a Street Fighter game, are poised for the update, which will get an official name reveal and trailer tomorrow.

Additionally, the update will include balance fixes and six new stages. It will cost $15 as an add-on to the current game or $40 as a direct digital download for the whole game. Consumers who purchase the full digital release of the update will receive all previous costume add-ons free of charge.

The update will launch on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Release date details will be announced early next year.
