Evo2k11: Street Fighter III Online Edition DLC detailed

If you didn't already know Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition is going to support DLC to help offset the fact that it's Capcom USA's highest-budgeted downloadable game to date. At their Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition panel during Evo2k11 producer Derek Neal unveiled some of the first DLC that's in store following the game's upcoming August release

Titled "Fight for the Future" -- I see what they did there -- this unique DLC is not playable, but rather the results from an invitation only tournament Capcom held at their offices earlier this year. For this super-secret showdown Capcom flew in 16 of the world's greatest Street Fighter players from around the world -- including the likes of EG Justin Wong, Amir and Tokido.

Details for how this DLC will work were vague, but I can only imagine that it will incorporate the games downloadable replay system. As for the winner... well Capcom told the fans on-hand that they will just have to wait till August to see who came out on top.

Unfortunately no firm date and price for the "Fight for the Future" tournament were mentioned during the panel. With a "wide variety" of DLC planned for Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition hopefully Capcom keeps things on the relatively inexpensive side.
