Examiner.com "Capcom and Namco have been pretty mum about when their fighting game cross-over Street Fighter x Tekken for the PS3 and Xbox 360 might be released. Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono may have narrowed down the release window for the game."
That's gonna be a long wait. But makes sense.
why is a fighting game taking so long to make is not like is adventure or first person shooter where you have to map out maps and levels
You'd be surprised on how long it takes to balance out fighting game characters. If the development team isn't careful, there can be characters that unfairly dominate everyone (and I don't mean characters that are considered high tier; I mean characters that have infinites and such.) That and I'm fairly sure that the main focus right now is on Marvel vs Capcom 3, with Street Fighter x Tekken being an afterthought as of right now.
why did they have to announce them so early... thats such a long wait
Probably so it doesn't get leaked. Its Capcom and Namco, if one person from either company opens their mouth it will ruin the announcement.
It does, there have been so many fighters lately. And Marvel VS Capcom 3 coming out soon.
It'll be interesting to see what fighters make the cut and how the two fighting engines will work with one another.
Or What will the Tekken guys throw at the SF cast? I dont reckon anybody being able to throw KI balls and Fire Energy at people in the tekken games! ._.
They'll work it in around the Tekken framework I'm sure.
My guess is Street Fighter 2 Turbo characters, and original Tekken. Even though I'm hoping for more.
I want Tekken 3 people, Paul vs Guile would be the best thing ever
I feel a bit sorry for the release that drops last...I'm also curious about price points and cross promotion, but damn...that's still a long wait.
Yeah, obviously they don't want to release the two at the same time but still.
I wish it was 3D for a change, this generation already has enough quality 2D fighting games.
Which is why they are having 2 games just like these franchise. SNK vs Capcom Chaos(KOF Style) Capcom vs SNK 1 &2(Capcom Style) Don't believe me well here is the proof of those games. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Namco making TEKKEN X street fighter with 3d CAPCOM making street fighter x TEKKEN with 2d . Two different versions for everyone to enjoy.
It sure is confusing a lot of people. I wonder what Namco will be working on first, Tekken 7 or Tekken X Street Fighter?
Capcom and Namco doing what they do best. Milk their franchises with old engines. This game screams shoe horned into one package. Let's take 2 completely different fighting games and slam and cram them together. MK vs Street Fighter might make more sense. At least projectiles are allowed. Tekken was always more grounded in physical reality based combat. Sure "some" fighters had projectiles but 90% of them didn't. How can you "balance" this one out? I wish Capcom would just move on past their former glories. Same with Namco. This is their evolution. Right here. Taking two different fighters and jamming them together. Don't try to work on ways to evolve the fighting genre into a more stylized and realistic nature. No. LEt's just keep the gameplay the same as it's been for over 20 years. Make sense to me.
You have no idea what you're talking about.
SFIV breathed life backed into the fighting genre and resurrected it from the dead. Personally I am excited for MvsC3, Mortal Kombat, Tekken X Streetfighter and Street Fighter X Tekken. Now if only MS would take the lease off of Rare and get them to resurrect Killer Instinct. I play SSFIV daily. It's incredible!
most street fighter characters dont have a fireballs , get a clue of how it works out ...
nothing wrong with fighting games they need some innovation true. But add a whole alot features that effect gameplay woul destroy a fighting game.
@baltis its obvious you don't play fighters. SF2 is different from SF1, SF3 is different from SF2 and SF4 is different from SF3, yes it shares similarities with 2 but its a whole different game so how has capcom been milking it for 20 years? Tekken seems a little more similar from game to game but not having followed the series I really can't comment on it.
i dont even bother ... at the end of the day , people can make whatever stupid generalisation they want . With that kind of silly logic you can make every fps looks like quake or countestrike too , and pretend they never bring innovation or changes .. Or wait , of course , when they are littered with multiple changes , they refuse it aknowledge them as changes , and pretend its minor . Yet you wont see them bet some money on it . How about betting money that you would actually be able to play successfully the same way in sf2 , sf3 and sf4 with both new and old characters . Yes the exact same way , without focus , cancels , kara , ultras , or anything new since sf2 ... We know most of those guys would chicken out
