PC Street Fighter X Tekken DLC character news likely by the end of the week, CvS2 port a couple months off PC gamers hoping for news about the DLC characters in Street Fighter X Tekken shouldn't have to wait long, as Capcom's Christian Svensson said news is likely to be out before the end of the week, and they'd have some good things to share about the price point they'd be offered at, too.

He also delved into the PS2 re-release of Capcom vs SNK 2 saying it's a couple of months off, but it's cleared some channels in regards to emulation testing, and the digital sales team is working on locking down a date.

Here's a transcript of notable details from the live Ask Capcom session that was held today, hit the jump to check out the video archive.

• Svensson apologized for the very long delay on the PC Street Fighter X Tekken patches. He said the character DLC update should be out by the end of this week, and a significant short term price point will be available as well. Details will be announced soon.

• The digital survey was "hugely successful from my stand point," Svensson said. There were over 64,000 respondents in six days. There was some very good feedback that was actionable, but he didn't elaborate on what this pertains to. Results from the survey are being shared pretty broadly with senior management and are being factored in to product planning for the digital market.

• When asked about updates to Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — which came up constantly throughout the session — the guys said, "It kills us to not be able to talk about some things. Trust me, we know you want to know answers, and there's things we'd love to tell you, but... " they have rules they have to abide by. They didn't confirm anything one way or the other, they're simply saying that they wish they could share details, but they cannot because of the rules in place.

• The Capcom vs. SNK 2 re-release of the PS2 version is a couple of months off, as the digital sales team is trying to secure a date. The good news is it has passed a few channels at SCEA in the emulation testing. It's in the process of being worked on for North and South America. This is a straight port of the PS2 version.
