That was quick! Capcom has already released some of the first screenshots as well as a press release on the new Street Fighter X Tekken that has been announced. These two titles coming together is sure to be a moment that arcade fighting fans have been waiting for since the loss of the coin-op arcades over the years.
Utilising the same technology that powered Street Fighter IV & Super Street Fighter IV, Tekken characters such as Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams will make the transition into the Street Fighter universe having been re-imagined using the much loved art style of these seminal titles; while retaining their unique characteristics and signature moves as they go head to head with classic brawlers from the Street Fighter franchise in what promises to be the ultimate match up.
As in Street Fighter IV, gameplay will feature fully realised 3D character models battling for domination in both new and familiar highly detailed 2D environments that are brought to life with engaging animations. In addition to modes such as Versus and Training that will feature new enhancements to make the fighting experience more in-depth and enjoyable, Street Fighter X Tekken will include Tag Team combat where players select two fighters to deliver knockout assist attacks and special combos.
News that should make everyone run out and get the best arcade stick they can find. We already have Blazblue Continuum Shift, Marvel vs Capcom 3, and now Street Fighter X Tekken coming soon. Once the first-person shooter ruled this generation of gaming, now it seems arcade fighting is making the biggest comeback in history.
