Talking at a Comic-Con panel, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed that Capcom's Street Fighter X Tekken is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, mashing up the popular Capcom fighting game with Namco Bandai's long-running series.
The title, which has no confirmed release date, will utilize the same technology that powered popular recent franchise titles Street Fighter IV & Super Street Fighter IV, with Tekken characters like Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams battling Street Fighter favorites like Ryu and Chun-Li.
According to an official announcement on Capcom.com, the game will feature 2D gameplay as in Street Fighter IV, as well as fully realized 3D character models.
In addition to modes such as Versus and Training that will feature new enhancements, Street Fighter X Tekken will include Tag Team combat -- where players select two fighters to deliver knockout assist attacks and special combos.
The announcement was made at the special Street Fighter panel during San Diego's Comic-Con by the producer of Street Fighter X Tekken, Yoshinori Ono, and Tekken series project leader, Katsuhiro Harada.
Commenting on the origins of this project, Yoshinori Ono said: “This is history we're making. Two fighting games that have rivalled each other are finally standing on the same stage. This isn't just a showdown between Tekken and Street Fighter, but a decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games. So I'm going to give it my all.”
In addition, as reported on by 1UP.com from the panel, there will be a second game called Tekken X Street Fighter, produced by Namco Bandai's Tekken team, which'll play more like a traditional Tekken title. No further details or screenshots of this second title were made available.
