Capcom’s new “Outfit 3” DLC for Street Fighter 6 has recently released a large batch of new costumes, featuring 18 new outfits for the main lineup. Many of them are fantastic, such as Marisa’s beautiful bridal gown, the reappearance of Blanka-chan, and Juri in onesie pajamas.
What’s not so fantastic is how Capcom is selling them, and players are irritated with how the publisher handles premium currency sales.
Each of the new Street Fighter 6 costumes costs 300 Fighter Coins, the fighting game’s currency that can only be purchased with real-world money. Capcom, on the other hand, does not offer Fighter Coins in groups of 300.
Instead, the corporation offers them in amounts of 250, 610, 1,250, and 2,750. That implies players must pay at least $11.99 to purchase any of the new costumes, and if they are buying two with that number of Fighter Coins, they will have a balance of ten.
Players aren’t particularly outraged by the price; other live-service games (for example, Overwatch 2, Apex Legends, and Valorant) offer skins for $10 to $20, sometimes more. It’s the monetization scheme that will leave users with extra coins but nothing to spend them on – a strategy aimed to encourage them to buy more cash because they’ll always have a little left over.
Of course, some gamers are upset about the price of the skins, especially in relation to the price of Street Fighter 6 itself. Purchasing all 18 Outfit 3 outfits would cost $99.98 in Fighter Coins.

The costume DLC in Street Fighter 6 is also more expensive than identical cosmetics in many other fighting games, notably Tekken 7, which distributed cosmetics via a season pass, and Dead or Alive 6, which sold its many, many costumes piecemeal. The Street Fighter 6 outfit DLC is more in line with Mortal Kombat 1’s high price, which MK fans have criticized.
Naturally, these decorative goods have no bearing on the gameplay of Street Fighter 6. However, the decision to offer extra material in this manner sticks out like a sore thumb in a game when Capcom does so many things correctly.
