Capcom accidentally reveals Vita will launch in US before March 6

"So we know that the PlayStation Vita won’t be released in North America and Europe until the early part of 2012. But it looks like the launch window has been narrowed down considerably by Capcom." (PS Vita)

I've just realized that sf vs tekken and ultimate mvc 3 are on A HANDHELD with same graphics as the ps3/360 version but the wii don't have those games and won't even match the vita graphics.

UK store Shop-To list the release as 1st of February 2012
Shop-To.net is a big online store for video games in the UK. They list the console and some of the games as having a 01/02/2012 release. Of course it could just be placeholder dates but for what purpose?

Start saving that Christmas present money because I suspect the Vita release won't be long from now?!

Before March 31 guarranteed. Sony's fiscal year ends on March 31.

maybe capcom meant it will release SFvsTekken in Japan, did the writer forgot that Vita will be available in Japan this December ?
KwietStorm  +   1104d ago
He clearly said its speculation, but it also fits the early 2012 US release that Sony mentioned.

Yeah Japan will get their Ps Vita before the end of the year. So it wouldn't be surprising for sfvt to release on all platforms on march 6th.

Well, if this is true, I might have to import it then :(

End of April beginning of march is what I predict.

Could be this date.

I think what Sony are doing is solidifying Japans release, getting it out there in Japan and then they'll move onto US and EU.

Mind you, isnt EU + US a bigger launch than JP?

This is from the official press release:

"Street Fighter X Tekken is headed to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012, and announced by Ono-san at New York Comic-Con, a PC version that just began development. More details on the PlayStation Vita version and the PC version will be revealed in the future. "

The Fact Sheet that came with the press release listed a March 6, 2012 release date for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Vita versions.
