Mind when Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono said it was going to be a two-year wait for Street Fighter x Tekken following its reveal at ComicCon? Ono now says it’s now aiming for less then that.

The Street Fighter IV producer told Eurogamer that, following an “arse” kicking from Capcom dev boss Keiji Inafune on his comments for the two-year wait for the game, it’s now aiming for “less than two years.”

“At Comic-Con I think I said two years. After that I got called into Inafune’s room and he literally kicked my arse,” said Ono.

“So I’m trying to shorten that. So, yeah, less than two years.

“Having said that, we can’t just announce it and then release something that’s not very good,” he added.

“So we really have to put our effort in this. Okay, we announced it a bit early. That was just so that we don’t let you down. We also have this duty of bringing out something perfect, to deliver it to you. We’ll be doing our best in doing so.”

Whenever it releases, it’ll be on PS3 and 360.

A second title from Namco Bandai, Tekken x Street Fighter, will come afterwards in Tekken’s 3D perspective.
