Given the popularity of this Capcom/Namco crossover, and Capcom's love of expanded rosters and DLC, this announcement should come as a surprise to no one. For fans of the game however, it should be welcome news.
Here's the press release:
Capcom today confirmed the advanced release of 12 new playable characters for Street Fighter X Tekken on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Originally scheduled to be available after the PS Vita version launches this fall, these 12 new characters will now be added to the all-star roster on July 31, 2012 as DLC for the low price of €19.99/£15.99 (1600 Microsoft Points).
