Tekken X Street Fighter was announced at San Diego Comic Con in 2010 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Thanks, CVG.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has said the graphical power of Wii U is about the same as PS3 and Xbox 360, but the CPU is a bit slower. Speaking with Digital Spy, Harada said despite this, it’s not that big of an issue. “As far as graphical processing and such, it’s not much of an issue, but as far as the CPU goes, the clock is kinda low. I guess they’re trying to keep power consumption down so we have to come up with creative ways to get around that and that’s taking a little bit of time.” On the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 front, Harada said he’s planning to release the Wii U version of the game “as close as possible” to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, which release on September 14.
