Geese joins King of Fighters 14 in predictable fashion, Ryo also shown and Joe sneaks in before his official reveal

A new King of Fighters 14 trailer was shown today, and in case the leaked roster hadn't made it predictable enough already, SNK decided to really drive the point home with Geese's return in the video.

Updated: Alex's official Street Fighter 5 trailer released

Updated: Alex and the Street Fighter 5 in-game store are now live.

Earlier: Street Fighter 5's first DLC character is being released today, and now we have an official trailer to go with him.

Alex joins the fray today, along with Street Fighter 5's in-game store.

New fighters and costumes can be purchased from the in-game store: characters for 100,000 Fight Money each and new costumes for 40,000 Fight Money each. Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri, and Urien will all be joining the playable roster throughout the year as DLC, and each will have their own alternate story mode costume that can be purchased in the shop.

Season pass holders will be given immediate access to Alex and future characters when they are released. Since the Zenny feature -- using real money to purchase content from the in-game store -- isn't ready just yet, Capcom is offering Alex and any other character that are released before the feature is ready for free as a trial period.

Once Zenny is officially live, however, players will have to purchase each of the characters if they want to continue using them.

Finally, as a way to say thanks for the patience and understanding shown by the community throughout the beta phases and launch, Capcom is giving all user Ryu and Chun-Li's story mode costumes free of charge.

Alex joins Street Fighter 5 in March, PS4 version of Street Fighter 5 will support PS3 controllers and sticks

Today, we contacted Capcom regarding rumors going around about Street Fighter 5, its DLC plans, and whether PS3 controllers would be compatible with the upcoming PS4 game.

Just recently, Capcom got back to us with the following quote:

We can confirm that Alex will be the first DLC character and will be available in March and the final version of Street Fighter V (PS4) will be compatible with PS3 controllers.

The current theory seems to be that since Alex is the leftmost character of the silhouettes Capcom showed us at Capcom Cup back in December (in case you've missed these, you can find them after the jump), that the release order after him would be Guile, Balrog, Ibuki, Juri and then finally Urien, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments.
