Street Fighter/Tekken Efforts A Ways Off, Gameplay Vid Excites
The fighting world is all in a tizzy over these two hybrid crossovers; Namco Bandai and Capcom's separate attempts at bringing the Street Fighter and Tekken worlds together.
As we learned last week, the two developers are working on two separate games: one is Street Fighter X Tekken and will have the 2.5D perspective found in SFIV, and the other is Tekken X Street Fighter, which will boast the full 3D perspective in the Tekken titles. But when are they coming? Well, not for a while. According to what SFIV producer Yoshinori Ono told Famitsu (via Andriasang), Capcom will be the first to deliver their version but even that is two years off. He also told us that Namco's effort, helped along by veteran franchise producer Katsuhiro Harada, is being developed entirely separately...with no apparent sharing of information going on. Is this a competitive thing...? Well, anyway, here's some gameplay taken from Comic-Con 2010:
I always forget how much people love their fighters. The fans seem plenty happy with this, don't they? Anyway, Ono says not to expect the next major announcement for their title until Capcom's Captivate event next April. Between now and then, maybe we can just drool over this again and again... Oh, and be sure to check out the new screenshots through the link above. They're tasty.
