New characters like Dee Jay, T. Hawk could be added to Street Fighter IV

Even though the game hasn’t been out more than a few days, are you already tired of the Street Fighter IV roster? Producer Yoshinori Ono says adding more characters to the mix is entirely possible.

Ono-san told Famitsu that the development team wanted to add as many characters to the game as possible. He even went as far as to say they did all of the modeling and pre-texture work for characters like Dee Jay and T. Hawk.

“If uses make their voices known, this prep work is something we can revive at any time,” he said. 

Early last year when I asked Ono-san about significant DLC plans plans — versus releasing something like a Super Street Fighter IV Turbo Alpha Mega Fighters Remix follow up — he laughed, saying the team was seriously considering such additions. Capcom has already announced plans for paid DLC costumes; solid information on future DLC has yet to be revealed. 

What characters would you like to see added to the Street Fighter IV roster? And if they were added, would you prefer they be released as part of a significant DLC patch? Or would you be fine with Capcom iterating and releasing new games based around this core for the next eight years?
