A new patch will be available for Street Fighter X Tekken on April 24, 2012, which adds 60 free gems and a replay analyzer to the game. Over on the official Japanese blog, they offered details on the update.

Pandora Extend, Ultimate Guard and Expert Input are some of the notable gems that will become available. Pandora Extend ups this mode to a 20 second duration, Ultimate Guard combines auto block, auto throw escape and chip damage negation into one gem, but it takes one bar of meter to use. You can still block by yourself, and you'll still take chip damage as normal when doing so, though. Expert Input requires more precise inputs on your motions. Some of the other gems will also be exclusive to Street Fighter or Tekken characters.

Here's a video of the Ultimate Guard gem in action.
