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.
