Rumor: DLC characters coming for Super Street Fighter 4 Ryan "Gootecks" Gutierrez posted on his Twitter account that he heard from a "strong source" that downloadable content (DLC) characters will be added to Super Street Fighter 4.

This backs up earlier statements made by the title's producer, Yoshinori Ono, where he mentioned it was possible the game could see downloadable characters added in the future.

Ono specifically mentioned that Hugo would be considered, although he personally pushed for R. Mika and Rolento to be included in Super Street Fighter 4's original line up.

The SSF4 arcade development team is considering adding new fighters into the line up when they release that version further on down the road, but nothing is concrete yet. It's a logical assumption that if any fighters are added to the arcade release, it's likely those same fighters will be added to the console versions as DLC.

Thanks to Tonyle for pointing this out.
