The next Vs. game from Capcom and their second in partnership with Namco, Street Fighter X Tekken looks set to blend the tag-team elements of Tekken Tag Tournament with the controls and gameplay of Street Fighter IV. This is definitely a Tekken visits Street Fighter affair due to it being developed by Capcom. A Namco rebuttal is expected ala the Capcom vs SNK/SNK vs Capcom to-and-fro from 10 years ago, but for now Tekken fanboys will have to learn to adapt if they want to take part in this tournament.
The recently announced features are:
- Dream Match Up – Dozens of playable characters including Ryu, Ken, Guile, Abel and Chun-Li from Street Fighter® as well as Kazuya, Nina, King, Marduk and Bob from TEKKEN®.
- Real-time Tag Battle – Fight as a team of two and switch between characters strategically.
- Familiar Controls – In Street Fighter X Tekken, controls will feel familiar for fans of both series.
- Robust Online Modes – In addition to the online features from Super Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter X Tekken features totally upgraded online functionality and some new surprises.
No firm release date as of yet but expect this to land on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime in 2012.
