Exciting news indeed and btw there will be 2 versions of this game 1st ''Street Fighter X Tekken'' is being developed by capcom based on SSFIV 2.5D engine while the 2nd one ''Tekken X Street Fighter'' will be developed by Namco using Tekken 6 3D engine courtesy of joystiq...
i was a hugh fan from Street FIghter. owned all games on the SNES but since Street Fighter 4 got release for PS3 i hate that game. i don't like the constrolments and also not the skill and combo system.
i can't wait to see the first pics of Tekken x Street Fighter.
This is definately an interesting direction for both of these two franchises to go in. My only concern is seeing the Tekken characters' play mechanics run on the Street Fighter IV engine. Over the years I've always heard so many "What if they pit against?" questions till its crazy. Examples: Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat, DOA vs Tekken, Virtua Fighter vs DOA. I suppose we'll have to wait and see more on how the full gameplay turns out for this title.
My question is how will the two departments handle the lack of projectiles in the Tekken series? Do they just plan on making classic Tekken characters have projectiles in the Capcom one then take out most of the projectiles in the Namco version? These are two completely different fighting styles. I fear the Capcom one may not fair as well as the Namco one in terms of trying to adapt the others playing style.
