Street Fighter x Tekken announced at ComicCon

Saturday, 24 July 2010 22:55 GMT By Johnny Cullen

sf x tekken

It’s official: Capcom vs Namco has been announced at ComicCon.

Or to give it its more specific name, Street Fighter x Tekken. And it’s 2D!

This is Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono’s big announcement that has been hinted at for weeks.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada interupted the panel, then followed up by a trailer that featured SF’s Ryu and Tekken’s Jin in SFIV’s ink style, before the game was demoed live.

The fight showed a sort of tag-in style feature similar to Marvel vs Capcom, and featured Street Fighter’s Ryu and Chun-Li vs Tekken’s Jin and Nina.

The crossover has been talked about for a while, a year ago at least, according to Ono and Harada.

Two titles are to come: one being developed by Ono-san and Capcom, the other from Harada-san and Namco Bandai, known as Tekken x Street Fighter. The first title will be coming from the former, with the two to have each graphical style of both series.

It’s for PS3 and 360. As for the release, it won’t be “for a while.”

Press release, trailer, shots and the gameplay demo (thanks, GameVideos) are below.

THE HEAVYWEIGHTS OF THE FIGHTING WORLD COLLIDE AS CAPCOM ANNOUNCES STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN

London, UK – July 24 – Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games today announced that Street Fighter X Tekken is in development for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360TM video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. The title will make history as fighters from these two bastions of the fighting genre come together for the very first time.

Utilising the same technology that powered Street FighterTM IV & Super Street FighterTM IV, TekkenTM characters such as Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams will make the transition into the Street FighterTM 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.

The announcement, which took place at Comic-Con in San Diego in front of thousands of Street Fighter fans, was made by the Producer of Street Fighter X Tekken, Yoshinori Ono, and Tekken series Director, Katsuhiro Harada. Commenting on the origins of this project Yoshinori Ono said: “This is history we’re making. Two fighting games that have rivalled each other are finally standing on the same stage. This isn’t just a showdown between Tekken and Street Fighter, but a decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games. So I’m going to give it my all.”

    The mixed art styles look odd. the Tekken characters just dont match the Street Fighter ones in terms of design, sort of like having anime characters in a western cartoon.

    Huge or not i’m interested in more information about this. I’m very skeptical about the quality of this title.

    It’s very hard to make a good crossover over these two biggest fighting franchises.

    SF4 was a success and Tekken was not. Not to mention that SF and Tekken have two different mechanics, so these two publishers have serious problems.

    #26 5 years ago
  27. OlderGamer

    I bet the 2D Capcom made one outsells the 3D Namco one by 2 -1. At least.

    And yes, I can’t wait for this come out. 2D fighting is hands down one of the things that the JP game devs do better then anyone in the world.

  28. RETARDED VIKING

    doesn’t look fast pace enough at least for vs series eh i’ll just stick with MvC3 never was really a tekken fan anyway….still looks fun though.

    BOOM TIGER! Did not see this coming :D
    Looks like it might be a tekken game (or half tekken) that isn’t shit. 2D fighting for the win.
    PC release? Guess not but would be bloody nice.

    stupid SF4 engine oh boy…why do you hate me so much GOD :( please let the rumor’s be true about a Tekken vs SF with tekken 5 engine!

    #32 5 years ago
  33. OlderGamer

    Not a 2D fighter fan Tea? Or just the SF4 engine that gets ya down?

    I am at the other end of the scale. I loath most 3D fighters. Almost all offense, they feel flat lacking depth and strategy and balance.

    If it is a fighter and has the Capcom logo … I am in. Unless we are talking about one of those god awful 3Dx ones Sony made them do a couple gens back. They were bad.

    I don’t know when this game is headed out the door, but with MVC3 on its way … maybe this should have waited? Sometimes too much of a good thing is still too much.

  34. Boris Fett

    Everyone seems to be forgetting the real king of this genre anyway… Virtua Fighter.

    @32 Did you read the article at all? It *says* right there in the piece that Tekken x Street Fighter will be getting released as well.

    @33 What do you mean they should have waited? It says it won’t be released for quite some time yet. I’d be very surprised if we see this by the end of 2011 at the earliest, and possibly not until 2012. MvC3 is due out in the spring of next year.

  36. Crysis

    TBH, I’d rather Capcom make another Dino Crisis before this, they haven’t touched it in years but last time they did, they really f#cked up.
    Capcom half evolves as generations pass, sure they update graphics & all of that, but the Resident Evil cameras are god awful, yet they continue with it, it was passable 15 years ago for that kind of thing, but not now, not for a big name title atleast, maybe for an XBL or PSN game that shit is passable.
    Imho, Dino Crisis was the only good dinosaur franchise, with Dino crisis 1 being probably the best psone game ever (atleast in my eyes)

    #36 5 years ago
  37. Gekidami

    They’re just riding their money train. They know that SF will always be a safe bet, unlike Dino Crisis.

    #37 5 years ago
  38. KAP

    What?!

    Some of you guys are nuts, im seeing…

    “not fast enough”..
    “graphics isnt any good”…
    “tekken isnt has good as street fighter”…
    “Tekken isnt has big a franchise”… (?!)

    As i know these a simply all opinions you got to admit when seeing this annoument of this it seems waaaaaay off right now in terms of release i mean, ono even said it could crash at any moment. We should all feel lucky we saw it in its current state. As for popularity you guys clearly havent been to tournys for Tekken have you? course not. Its MASSIVE and are held all around the world (even in birmingham LOL)

    Anyway, Tekken is as big as its ever been, and with this partnership both titles will get even bigger, these will be as big has, if not bigger then the marvel v capcom titles.

    #38 5 years ago
  39. Amir Mirzaee

    @38 I totally agree. I like Tekken more than Street Fighter, It’s actually because of a time when 3D Fighters was growing and Tekken was the best of them on PS. There wasn’t a good Street Fighter that days, so I choose Tekken over SF, and because of that choice I made long ago, Now I like Tekken characters more than Ryu or Chun-Li. Tekken also has a better storytelling with CG animations..

    anyway, I played StreetFighterII as a Kid and right now I’m playing SFIV. but I really like to see Tekken and SF characters fight with each other and because I own SFIV and not Tekken6(It happens!), I’m going to get the Namco version this time.

    #39 5 years ago
  40. KAP

    Im not saying Tekken is better then SF i just play Tekken more because i personally feel more depth there. Saying that though i was one of those kids you saw in the local chipshop rinsing the last of his school lunch money down the arcades shouting out “sonic boooooooom – shuryuken”
    15yrs on i still love the fighting genre but i stuck with tekken because after the intial button basher stages tekken (for me) has more finesse to me.

    Obviously those of you will completely disagree and say “oh but juggling a dude the whole match isnt fighting or constantly hitting a guy when hes down isnt any fun” but if your a true gamer you can over come those sort of cheapness and still win.

    So what im trying to say is…… fuck all really.

    Lol

    “Tekken” long enough to realise that the “Marvel vs. Capcom” franchise doesn’t make sense & cannot be marketed properly.

    I hope “Urban Reign 2” (or a High Definition re-make/update version of “Urban Reign”) is next.

    @48 Well… the third one is exactly why the franchise is dead. The fact that you never even knew it existed probably goes to show why it didn’t do well…

    Street fighter has semi magical moves(fireballs, electric shock etc), tekken has semi realistic moves, SF’ s characters don’t have a lot of moves, tekken’ s characters have infinite combo.
    How can they combine them?

    PS:
    Greedy software house(capcom)+fanboys= street fighter 4, costumes for sf4, super street fighter 4, costumes for ssf4, marvel vs capcom 3(and obviously costumes), street fighter x tekken(and namco’s tekken x street fighter), obviously costumes for sfxt, street fighter 3 online… do i forget something?

    @51 Oh god, this old complaint.

    Greedy would be making people pay for a new character. Costumes are entirely cosmetic. Greed =/= Profit.

  54. Crysis

    @50, which is exactly why they should not do a sequel but restart the whole series & actually think through the storyline, not just slap together some dumb ideas, but in recent events, seems to be exactly what Capcom does best, some of their stupid ideas work, others do not, we’ll have to see how this game goes before we start to judge

    (@ Anti-DLC people) and there was me thinking Capcom are running a business… If you don’t want the stuff then the DLC is well, you know… OPTIONAL!

    Personally I think we may see some of the Tekken characters throw projectiles! I can’t wait to see Capcom’s interpretation of the Tekken characters!! Bryan VS Sagat, Zangeif VS King or even those paired up! CAN’T WAIT :p

    #58 5 years ago
  59. Crysis

    @58, the people are angry that those choices have been stripped from the game yet has still been charged full price for an ‘un’finished game, i don’t remember, for a random example, GTA charging for optional in-game items & there was no reason to, ofc it wasn’t nessecary to the finished game, but we apprecitaed it nevertheless

    #59 5 years ago
  60. Boris Fett

    Calling a bunch of costumes “stripping” out a game means you really need to change your priorities. Heck, they added an extra game mode COMPLETELY FOR FREE!

    And people still bitch. Dear god.

    The game is just as complete with or without them. My Hadoken is not going to hit for harder if I don’t have Ryu’s extra costume, and I’m not being made to buy them.

    I have finally realized! Capcom is generous!
    SF’ s fanboys want to spend money in futile costumes so capcom, instead of include them in the game, sold them to make fans happy! XD

    Obviously costumes in combats are futile(not true, see sc4 and def jam), but i think that in 2010 a 3d beat’ em up must have an editor for custom outfits, but evidently some sh doesn’t agree(guess why?).

    I can’t recall what one but one of the Capcom fighters used to have a color editor for custumes.

    Wait i don’t get it. Will there actually be two different versions for sale when it comes out? One for 3D and 2D? Or will there simply be a ingame option for that?

    @OlderGamer

    I used to have some pretty sweet palette edits on CvsSNK 2 iirc

  67. Boris Fett

    @63? Def Jam? Seriously? You’re comparing this to Street Fighter? I would rather they concentrated on balancing the games and the characters instead of wasting time adding some pointless costume editor.

    Street Fighter is not Soul Calibur, and it doesn’t need a costume editor. Any player of significant skill at the game doesn’t care either.

    @64 This was a very common feature in most of the PSone era fighting games. A few of them had it. It was pretty cool.

    @65 There will be two separate games, released at different times. One will use the Street Fighter engine, the other will use the Tekken engine.

    It’s very strange how fighting games have suddenly become popular again. I really did think they were ‘done’.

    It may be ‘done’ but it’s never ‘over’… As they say. :)

    @67:Oh please don’ t be a fanboy!

    Your word:
    “This was a very common feature in most of the PSone era fighting games. A few of them had it. It was pretty cool”
    Referred to color choosing.

    So other brands’ costume editor: pointless
    Old street fighter color chooser: pretty cool

    The love for street fighter can really brainwash fanboys’ heads?

  71. Boris Fett

    @70 Fanboy? Pleeeease. I’ve played almost every single fighting game that has been released in the last 10 years. I’m at least vaguely proficient at a few of them – SSFIV and Virtua Fighter V being my personal favourites – and I have a basic grasp of Tekken as well – current favourite characters being Leo and Bruce.

    There’s a big difference between a costume editor and a palette swap editor. The latter was very easy to do because every sprite was made up of only about 16 colours. It was incredibly easy to implement.

    Games have come a long way since then, and cost significantly more to make to boot. Nowadays? A full blown character design feature is resource time that can be better spent balancing the game, something Capcom did an amazing job doing with SSFIV now less.

    It doesn’t need a “dress your own Ryu” mode, and Street Fighter’s extremely dynamic fighting would make character creation a mess, especially with the game’s art style. It’s extra baggage that this particular game simply doesn’t need.

    If I want character creation, I’ll play Soul Calibur. If I want to dress my characters up like sluts and badly colour coordinated pimps, I’ll play Tekken.

    #71 5 years ago
  72. 2plus2equals5

    Ok i’ll explain you one thing.
    If a 3d character have a single outfit you can make a simple model with that outfit.
    If you plan to make different outfits you have to make the nude model, the clothes, the physics for the clothes and other things. All things that take a lot of time.

    Oh and don’ t forget that most of dlcs are builded or ideated before the game release.

    Developers of street fighter and tekken & co write all the codes to support different clothes, the only difference is that tekken & co give you clothes for free, capcom instead wants your money. ;)
