So..... yeah let's go there now. Next month in september, this game will be 4 years old, from is release date back in 2012 september, this game has manged to pull street fighter like updates (With DOA5 Ultimate and Last round) Each one bringing new things to the table. First intial release has Vitrual fighter guest characters, Akira, Pai and Sarah, second release ultiamte, added Jacky and some other missing characters from the series, and included some new ones like Momiji (A character only featured in Ninja gaiden and dynasty warriors) Maria rose, and Honoka, and last round added 2 additional characters, one i never heard of before but the other is dated to be released september and is Mai Shiranui from SNK series Fatal fury/King of fighters series.) With new content for characters comes with the reason why i made this claim, the costumes. over the spand of the 4 years since day one to now, has been FLOODING COSTUMES IN DLC FORMAT. From licensed anime to video games, Tatsunoko, Senran kagura, Sengoku series, Attack on titan, Fairy tale, even FALCOM (currently well known by YS series and many others) and now soon, King of fighters costumes. There is been many costume updates one character has least more than 30 costumes, mostly female for some reason. So this is why i made this claim, if i am wrong please let me know, proove it to me, this is expensive! I may be exaggerating but i bet all the dlc for this game adds up to over $2000 By the way, i know that buying retail upgrade should include all the previous version dlc which is fair if you are new to buying the game. But for someone who has owned the original game before upgrades, is different perspective, you never expected this from this game. So try to understand the position people are coming from. Like buying a game that suddenly now is free to play.
