Street Fighter X Tekken
1UP has listed some interesting nuggets of information.
Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Cammy, Abel, and Sagat were playable at E for Sreet Fighter, and over on th Tekken end, playable characters were Kazuya, Nina, King, Bob, Marduk, Hwoarang, and Julia. All of the characters teased so far are present in the game but of course its not a complete list of characters.
Players can “tag out” from a knocked down state, when the screen will flash a bit giving your opponent the knowledge that your fresh team mate is about to come in.
String combos were mentioned, but projectiles from Tekken fighters will have a move that will allow them to bypass projectiles. EX moves and Super Moves are in the game, Focus Attacks are not. There is a Super Meter and Super Moves will drain it.
