Capcom has released the first official screenshots of Street Fighter x Tekken.
Fighting genre! Starting 2011. >:D
I thought someone was lying when they told me this. I kind of never thought this would ever come about. Seems like a lot of fighters are coming out these days..
That's a great thing! (at least for me). I love this old school fighters, and I am hoping for Killer Instinct 3 (hopefully someday) MvC3 Mortal Kombat Namco X Capcom Blaze Blue Street Figther 3rd Strike It's a great year for fighting fans!
It certainly is! Feels like the time in which a lot of shooters were coming out. Though for someone like me it will be hard to decide on which to get.
I will go for Mortal Kombat first and then MvC3, if they get released about the same time.
capcom and namco fighting game = beast lol.
what did they do to kazuya ;(
basically now i want to see the Tekken VS Street fighter screen shot of kazuya.
Shit just got real. Probably one of the biggest videogame collaborations in history. This, MvC3 and SFIII: Online are gonna tear up 2011 (and my wallet). This just looks amazing.
Not cool. I well I mean it is cool. For Capcom fans, but Tekken fans get to see there favourite characters shoehorned into what they likely consider an inferior fighting engine. Poor, poor Kazuya.
Well that's what Tekken X Street Fighter is for. Street fighter characters using the Tekken 6 engine. Also hope it keeps the customization. Would like to put swords on Ryu. :p
Yeah I apologize. I didn't know they were developed seperately, when I made that comment. I'll just get the Tekken X rather than SF X. Can't wait for the Tekken X trailer. Although personally I think a blend of the two fighting styles, would've provided something new for everyone, and been more interesting overall. Rather than two separate games.
Xbox people will have to get a arcade stick if they don't have one already cause fighting games with the 360 dpad is bad.
Never played Street Fighter or Tekken, this could be a good time to start.
People need to realize that this game is developed by Capcom mostly for the Street Fighter fanbase. If you prefer Tekken's combat system (for whatever reason), Namco is releasing Tekken x Street Fighter which will more than likely be a 3D, Tekken 6-like counterpart to this game for Tekken fans. I think this is a good move, as Tekken fans will probably not want to adapt to the SF fighting engine and vice-versa. Personally I would only consider this game if Capcom made it, so now I am a bit more keen as I had previously assumed it would be one 3D title rather than two separately-developed titles. As for those complaining about Capcom releasing too much, what the hell kind of complaint is that? They're giving fans a ton of choice between games people want. If you don't want them, well, no one cares about you. Buy some other crap from your favourite developers like Treyarch, who just pound out quality titles upon quality titles.
but im undecided between blazblue (love the art style) Marvel vs Capcom (LOVE the original) and now THIS (tekken is one of my fav fighting games since its one of the few i got good at xD) any suggestions? im literally undecided between the 3 =( 0.3333333% of my heart for each and every one of them! grrr
This is entirely my opinion but I would say BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. I love SF4/SSF4 but I feel that BlazBlue has an extreme uniqueness to it in quite a few ways: 1. The story mode is actually not complete garbage, which is something I have never seen in a fighting game. 2. The fighting engine is very technical, but it does not have anything as technical as a one-frame-link. So the combos are still tough, but not as tough as SF, and because you can air combo the satisfaction is much greater. 3. The cast is one of the most unique and diverse fighting game casts I've ever seen. Carl Clover, Arakune and Litchi Faye-Ling stand out as characters that just play completely differently from a standard character. 4. The online mode is AMAZING in terms of laglessness. 5. The sprites are incredibly detailed, as are the stages, and the music is just great. You will not at all be disappointed.
I say get all but my personal favorite will probably be Blazblue since it punish turtles. It also has a big learning curve. If you want just fun and dont plan on playing fighting games a lot probably Marvel vs Capcom 3. Blazlue CS comes out this Tuesday. Im skipping SF vs Tekken. I want to see Tekken vs SF before i make a decision to get it or not.
this is , you dont have to choose (unless you rally dont have the time or money) ... those style and such variety exists for a reason ... One of Imdaboss's reason is very valid ... he hates turtle so went toward a great game punishing the system . Some will prefer another pace and the idea of a game allowing every strategie , even turtling as valid , and go elsewhere . But if you love those varied styles equally , then go for it . It's not even as if they are released at the same time
thnkx, i'm basically trying to pick THE fighting game for my collection. Im not a big fighting fan but I always had an awesome fighting game available in my collection when I got the urge Mega Drive: Street fighter II (also alpha in PSOne classics collection =D) N64: Killer Instinct Gold (100x combo FTMFW) Dreamcast: Powerstone, DOA and Soul Calibur (my fighting game craze, Soul Calibur my fav <3) PS2 - none -__- but borrowed tekken (dno which one) from friend for ages, loved it PS3 - ?!?!?! ='( so yeah, I'm a big sprite fighter fan, and I HATTTTE turtles and button masher pwnage, so BlazBlue sounds good fr me. gna wait for CM, but isn't it getting worst reviews than original? or is it because "not innovative enough" crap? either way thanks for the input! much appreciated =D!
It's awesome to see fighting games making a comeback! I have been playing a ton of SSFIV lately and I am pumped for Mortal Kombat and MvsC3. Now add this to the mix! Guess I am going to have to build that arcade cabinet after all.
this is either gonna be the best thing ever or the worst although having the two different fighting systems divided between two games is gonna suck. i'd love to have them both in one game
As a long time Tekken and Street Fighter fan, all I have to say is, what the f***. Can't wait to see how they pull this off.
I want Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat. I dunno how it can be done but I want it.
MK has gone back to 2D with its latest title, so it is definitely not impossible. Hell, Tekken was a bigger leap and the decision was to simply make two titles. An MK crossover probably wouldn't need to go that far, but if they did just make one game the combat engine would suffer as it'd amalgamate two very different game engines into a bastardized one -- so that's something to consider.
Hell. They did Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. If they can pull that off, oh yeah, they could pull off a Street Fighter crossover.
That's a bit different. DC Universe doesn't have a fighting game engine that needs to be compensated for. In a case like Capcom vs SNK, those engines needed to be changed up but they're both technical 2D fighters so it worked out well. MK is quite different from SF in comparison, and it lacks that high level of technicality. However, it is certainly not an impossible task, even if they did just make one title instead of doing what Namco and Capcom are doing now. Of course Tekken is nothing at all like SF so the two titles was actually a smart decision, otherwise one camp would have been pissed off.
Also, would they trade in Fatalities for flashy Super Combos?
i guess im the only one asking, why would anyone want this?
