TEKKEN Blood Vengeance digs deeper into the corrupt underbelly of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch and uncovers dark secrets that could destroy the Mishima family for ever, but will they survive long enough to reveal all?

Street Fighter X Tekken
First, we sat down with Capcom's resident fighting expert Seth Killian to discuss the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken, which blends the fluid 2D elegance of Street Fighter with the rough-and-tumble brawling of Tekken. We were particularly curious to learn about Gems, which work as customizable loadouts for your fighters, and how inFAMOUS 2's Cole McGrath will stack up in battle. Watch the video for more on this eagerly anticipated PS3 and PS Vita fighter.

123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO interview today with Capcom's Seth Killian on PSN Street Fighter III and Street Fighter X Tekken.
To quote: This August sees the long-awaited PSN release of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, followed by Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 in November and Street Fighter X Tekken in 2012.
I caught up with Capcom's Strategic Director of Online & Community Seth Killian at EVO, the world's biggest fighting game tournament, to get the latest updates on all three games.
Killian did me one better, discussing Capcom's evolving view of community engagement and sharing his analysis of Noah "The Prodigy," the eight-year old Marvel vs Capcom 3 competitor who captured the imagination of EVO attendees when he outmatched much older players to place among the competition's top 64 finalists.
PlayStation.Blog: Street Fighter III was famously a huge departure from Street Fighter II, earning it a fair bit of controversy. How does it hold up today?
Seth Killian, Strategic Director of Online & Community: For me, the essence of any great fighting game is learning how to read the mind of your opponent. If you can do that, Street Fighter III gives you the ultimate way to show that off...
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...
123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO 2K update today, with details on both Tekken Hybrid and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue as follows:
I spent the weekend at the EVO Championship Series, a mecca for fighting-game competitors and home to the biggest Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat tournaments in the world.
This year, I'm told, EVO attendance spiked sharply to nearly 8,000 attendees – enough to strain the confines of the biggest ballroom in one of Las Vegas's larger resort hotels.
With EVO's popularity soaring in recent years, it's become common to see legendary figures in fighting game design prowling the demo stations, studying player reactions and answering questions.
At EVO I caught up with Katsuhiro Harada, the outgoing game director for Tekken since its inception on the PSone. I particularly wanted to discuss this November's PS3-exclusive Tekken Hybrid, the upcoming Blu-ray compilation that will include CG film Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D, an enhanced version of the seminal PS2 fighter Tekken Tag Tournament, and an appetizer in the form of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue.
