Street Fighter X Tekken: Finally Fighting Together

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 25 comments

Our two favorite fighting universes getting melded into one.

Tekken and Street Fighter are the two most storied and strongly supported fighting game franchises, and now finally they're crossing over. That's right, soon your favorite Street Fighters will be pitted against those in the Iron Fist tournament.

In a pleasant twist of events, both Namco and Capcom will be working on the crossover games, but they won't be working on the same game. Capcom will be making its own version called Street Fighter X Tekken (the X is for "cross") and Namco will be making Tekken X Street Fighter.

We don't have a release date yet, but we know it's coming for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Here's the first teaser trailer from Capcom's side.

    Why on earth would they make 2 versions of the same game? Could they not agree on the use of super moves or something? And who in their right mind would want to buy both? I definitely wouldn't have liked it if they made Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and then I had to buy Capcom vs. Marvel 2 to play all the characters.

    Was anyone else dying laughing at the random Megaman vs Pac-man?

    Cannot wait though.

    It should be cool, but I'd rather have SNK vs Capcom 3. Capcom should have also used a different art style for the trailer, makes me think it'll be Super SF IV with some Tekken people in it.

    the two games will be the two styles of game but featuring both sets of characters - SFII fans win, Tekken fans win, fans of both SUPER WIN

    I stopped liking street fighter when they started with all the Ryu/Ken variants (gouki, dan, sakura)

    On the other hand, I always liked tekken because of nina williams lol, she sure knows how to kick ass

    Rab1d-BDGRThis makes me very happy! I just hope that each company can replicate the "feel" of controling the characters from the other franchise. Otherwise it will just be SF with tekken characters and tekken with SF characters - not that that would be a bad thing - but genuine tekken vs SF gameplay would be amazing! (and this would settle a few nerd arguments once and for all...)


    That is exactly what is going to happen (My best guess anyways) and is the primary reason they are making two versions of the same game. Tekken and Street fighter are vastly different fighting games, and I think each version will replicate the franchises feel. For example, SF X Tekken will still play like a SF Title, but with tekken characters.

    Ive always been a bigger Tekken fan that SF so I think its sick that both developers are making they're own versions.

    Hopefully Namco will make something as good or better than capcom.

    as long as they are both good ..its all good.

    +1 for Street Fighter
    +1 for Tekken
    2 of my all time favorite games combined into one.
    Now if they can just merge with Midway and make a Mortal Kombat X Street Fighter X Tekken game

    This is going to be awesome, and it's being developed by my two favorite companies!

    "but they won't be working on the same game. Capcom will be making its own version called Street Fighter X Tekken (the X is for "cross") and Namco will be making Tekken X Street Fighter."

    This is terribly stupid! Instead of joining efforts, they compete against each other. And fans will be confused about which one to get..Many of them may end up buying both :x . And guess what? each company will make its characters more powerful than the others!!

    What happens when Tekken characters eat a hadouken in the face? How will they even out the super moves/finish and projectiles available in Street Fighter with the hand-to-hand chain combos of Tekken? Will it like that time Link appeared in Soul Calibur 2?
