I'm so glad to finally see some people who understand how major this update will be. Given the size of the original game files, we're looking at a -minimum- of a 3 gig file of just changes, not counting the stuff the game already has. That's the kind of DLC you pay for, anyone expecting it for free needs a damn reality check. Same goes for the people who think that's an acceptable download size for any and everyone.
I see a lot of people saying there's 8 characters, but in the press release they specifically said there would be "around 8" which tells me that the original rumors of there being 10 could possibly be true. All I know is that if they built up my hopes about Dudley and Makoto and they're not in, I'm going to be one mad bear.
And Ono has already expressed concerns about Sagat's power, so I'm fairly sure we're going to see him get toned down. By how much we won't know until the game is released, but Ono is well aware that Sagat is very strong and he's already said that the older characters are getting rebalanced, so.
I can't wait. As much as I love Wintertime, Spring can't come fast enough.
