123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO update today spotlighting Street Fighter X Tekken including PS Vita development details.
To quote: While the world's greatest fighters were trading blows during EVO, I was scrambling to trade words with top fighting game developers who attended the tournament.
In recent years, Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono has become the face of the legendary Street Fighter series and he was on-site showing off the upcoming crossover Street Fighter X Tekken.
I wanted to pick his brain concerning his friendly rivalry with Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada, his thoughts on PS Vita development, and why he chose inFAMOUS frontman Cole as an exclusive special guest for the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken.
PlayStation.Blog: What made you and Harada face off in the Ono X Harada video?
Yoshinori Ono, Producer, Street Fighter X Tekken: We started a tradition at last year's Comic-con, this kind of a pro-wrestling-style rivalry. The new video is just this year's version of our wacky rivalry.
The game itself has kind of a festival atmosphere, so we didn't want to be too serious about it. We wanted to bring Tekken fans and Street Fighter fans to the same table, and the...
Our E3 build had playable characters including Ryu, Ken, Guile, Abel, Sagat, Cammy, and Chun-Li from Street Fighter as well as Kazuya, Nina, King, Marduk, Hwoarang, Julia and Bob from Tekken (with plenty more to be revealed soon!).
Capcom's own Wes Phillips swung by to do a live demo at PlayStation's E3 livestream. Wes also discusses special guest Cole from inFAMOUS, our exclusive bonuses for the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken!
During E3, top fighting pros and newcomers alike stormed our E3 booth for hours of furious fights, leading to tons of feedback. It's a blast to jump right into Street Fighter X Tekken and start exploring, but the mechanics we've shown are far from complete....
139w ago - Today SCEE's James Gallagher has shared a new Street Fighter x Tekken gameplay trailer and details.
To quote: At Captivate last week, Capcom unveiled the first batch of playable characters in Street Fighter X Tekken: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile and Abel from Street Fighter and Kazuya, Nina Williams, King, Marduk and Bob from Tekken.
Afterwords, Producer Yoshinori Ono spoke how Street Fighter X Tekken came to be.
In his words... When we [Capcom] took that 10 year break between releasing Street Fighter games, I feel that Tekken diligently stoked the fighting game campfire and kept people interested. With Street Fighter IV we tossed kerosene on that fire and got fans really excited about fighting games again.
I was having dinner with the Tekken director [Katsuhiro] Harada-san shortly after Street Fighter IV came out and we got talking about how we could keep that campfire burning. We were half-joking when we first conceived this collaboration, but it did seem like a great idea to both of us and pretty soon we were both saying, 'you go back to your office and I'll go back to mine... let's synchronise watches and convince everyone that we...
165w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has shared news of early Halloween treats and Street Fighter 4 alternates in PlayStation Home this week, as follows:
Tis the month to be trick or treated, and Lockwood's getting a head start this week releasing a range of new Halloween items. Those looking for their Halloween costume should drop into the Lockwood store and check out the two variations of skeleton suit.
Choose from the Eerie Bones suit or the Glow Bones suit, depending on your taste. Also available from Lockwood this week is the perfect item to cook up something special: The Cauldron of the Sunless Kingdom. Mix ingredients to create special effects, and with the right mix the Cauldron may reward you.
For the Street Fighter 4 fans who have been waiting patiently for the alternate costumes, we have good news today. The alternate costumes will release tomorrow, completing the collection of Street Fighter 4 content for Europe. (Note: Abel alternate will not be released for technical reasons.)
