Street Fighter V’s first post-launch roster addition, Alex, is now downloadable. Returning from Street Fighter III, Alex is a hulking grappler that will set players back 100,000 in Fight Money. In addition, new story costumes have been added to the recently launched In-Game Shop that run 40,000 FM each. The in-game currency is earned as players go through the game.

An update earlier this week added several modes and features, including Demonstrations, Trials, Online Rematch for a 2/3 set, eight-person lobbies, and match spectating.
