GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! GIRLY SCREAAAAM!!!!!
So anyway. As you may have figured, I'm a huge fan of fighting games, with Tekken and Street Fighter being my all-time favorite fighting game series. A crossover fighting game with these two games is a concept dreams are made of, but for years it wouldn't come. They fooled around with the concept in Namco X Capcom, but the game was a finicky strategy RPG and it was only released in Japan. But finally, rumors flying around on the internet were answered recently at this year's Comic-con. The head honchos behind Street Fighter and Tekken have announced Street Fighter X Tekken! The teaser trailer is above, and a rough gameplay trailer is below.
Bloody epic. Apparently, Capcom's Street Fighter X Tekken will use Street Fighter 4's gameplay mechanics and graphics. The Tekken characters will be re-imagined and their traditional moves will adjust to 2D fighting mechanics, as you can tell from the clip. There will also be assist type moves, where an ally jumps in to deal some extra damage. Kazuya and Nina look great with their Street Fighter 4 looks, and its great to see Kazuya's Tekken moves being used.
Of course, this isn't the only news in the crossover department. Namco will also be developing a Tekken vs Street Fighter game, using the Tekken 6 engine. It is essentially the Tekken version, with Street Fighter characters being re-imagined to fit in with the 3D Tekken gameplay and look. Can't wait for their announcement.
Here's some screenshots for you to drool over.
