Capcom is “excited” about featuring Cole from InFamous in Street Fighter x Tekken.

“Discussions between Sony and Capcom came to [the decision to feature Cole as an exclusive]. They were looking for a character and Capcom got excited about Cole,” Capcom’s Seth Killian told Siliconera.

“It seemed like the timing was about right with Infamous 2 coming out around this time and it seemed a character that had a lots of possibilities, in terms of gameplay.

“Obviously, there is a big range of moves and I think we fell in love with the electric tornado like everyone else should [have]. There was his shockwave in Infamous 2 and we liked that, as well.”

Cole will feature in the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of the game. Exclusive Xbox 360 characters are yet to be confirmed.
