Capcom has already spilled the beans on Street Fighter 5's story mode and cinematic expansion, but the new information doesn't stop there.


In a phone interview with IGN, Capcom briefly discussed the game's DLC characters and in-game currency.

According to the interview, Street Fighter 5's first DLC character will actually see release in March of this year. As previously stated, these post-launch fighters will all be available for purchase via Fight Money -- Street Fighter 5's in-game currency.

Capcom explains that playing through most of Street Fighter 5's offline modes with different fighters, such as arcade mode, survival, and also ranking up each character, will net you enough Fight Money to purchase the first DLC warrior.

Once the first DLC character is released, daily challenges will be introduced making it easier for players to generate in-game currency.
As of right now, we are unsure which of the six DLC fighters will be the first to hit the Street Fighter 5 stage. At a WSO session earlier this month, Capcom UK's community manager, Matt Edwards, mentioned on stream that he got hands-on time with a playable version of Balrog whilst visiting the US for Capcom Cup back in December.

Though this doesn't confirm Balrog's release in March, it is certainly interesting to know that a playable version of him already exists.
