Capcom made it plain that there would be tons of gems for the innovative gem system which will appear in Street Fighter X Tekken. Some of these gems will only be available through pre-ordering, DLC, and other decried methods. Take for instance the Iron Curtain Gem pack which will accompany pre-orders of the game from Amazon. The pack includes gems that will harden your characters by ” increasing your fighters’ defense abilities”.
Nine different gems are included in the pack, which makes one wonder how different the gems will be from one another. I also wonder exactly how they will work. Perhaps one will decrease chip damage or enable some sort of push-block. These gems will most likely be pretty problematic in the competitive scene. If the best offense truly is a good defense, then Amazon is offering a pretty relevant incentive to secure your copy with them.
