The new Street Fight 6 x TMNT collab has fans confused and angry about its high price tag.
Capcom is facing backlash from fans about the price of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes. Announced at Evo 2023 along with the new SF6 DLC character A.K.I., the turtle-themed DLC was a surprising but well-received crossover. The costumes are part of the marketing push for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie that was released earlier this month.
The DLC contains costumes, emotes, camera themes, wallpapers, and avatar images based on the pizza-powered quartet. Players ultimately have the ability to turn their story mode character into their favorite Ninja Turtle. There’s a lot to take in, but the issue is that the full set can potentially be more expensive than buying Street Fighter 6 in the first place.
How much do the TMNT costumes cost in Street Fighter 6?
Getting the TMNT items in Street Fighter 6 costs $55 worth of in-game Fighter Coins. Each turtle is 750 Fighter Coins individually, so it costs 3,000 Fighter Coins in total for all four.
The Street Fighter 6 TMNT DLC price is higher than actual playable characters in most fighting games. Each DLC costume is priced at 750 fighter coins, equivalent to about. Players cannot purchase the exact amount of coins, either. To get one DLC costume, they’ll need to purchase 610 coins for $12 and an additional 250 for $5.
Players who want to get Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael need 3,000 fighter coins. A bundle of 2,750 points is available for $50 and the last 250 coins are another $5. The overall price comes out to be $55 if you want to purchase every costume. The price is just $5 shy of the retail price of Street Fighter 6 and goes up to $60 depending on which bundles the player purchases.
Capcom enjoyed praise for its DLC pricing recently. SF6 Season 1 DLC character Rashid costs 350 Fighter Coins. The overall game is still loved by the players and critics. Street Fighter 6 already sold 2 million units.
Are the TMNT playable fighters in Street Fighter 6?
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are not fully playable characters in Street Fighter 6. They are costumes for the player’s in-game avatar, which can be used during World Tour mode, avatar battles, and in lobbies.
The Ninja Turtles are analogous to the skins players could apply to Mii Fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Similarly, these skins were based on popular characters from other franchises including Sans from Undertale and the main character from Persona 3.
