If you haven’t seen the first footage yet, take a gander below and be in awe. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re a hardcore of either franchise, the footage is pretty impressive and from what’s shown, the matches will be incredibly action oriented while still retaining strategy. After picking up your jaw from watching the video, you can take a peek at some of the screens taken. They’re sure to make any Tekken fan grin in mischief, especially seeing Ryu get some harsh competition.
I know I said I’m a Street Fighter fan, but hey, I gotta give Tekken it’s time to shine in the sun, as well.
You can check out a lot screens over at Capcom-Unity.
As stated earlier, SF X Tekken will be featured on Capcom‘s Street Fighter IV engine while Tekken X Street Fighter will be running on what’s no doubt going to be the Tekken 6 or Tekken 7 engine. I think if there was anything I was wildly curious and intrigued about, it would be how Street Fighter characters will be transitioned into a 3D landscape. Those of you who played the atrocious EX series already know that 3D and Street Fighter are mutually exclusive, but Namco has proven that they can deliver an excellent 3D fighter time and time again.
I’m definitely looking forward to both titles. It’s incredible to see projects like this finally come to fruition after long time fantasies of it.
No word on yet on when you can expect to see Street Fighter X Tekken on Xbox 360, PS3, or arcade, but judging from the footage, it shouldn’t be too long.
