Anime News Network's Todd Ciolek writes, "Street Fighter X Tekken should be a pretty easy game to enjoy. Yes, it's a shameless fusion of CAPCOM and Namco's biggest fighters. Yes, it's taking advantage of the Street Fighter revival to serve up old characters one more time. Yet the entire fighting genre relies on exploit—er, refining the idea of one-on-one matches, and Street Fighter X Tekken knows what it is. It's a flurry of fan-bait packaged with the right strokes of humor and absurdity, and it's damaged only by CAPCOM's misguided attempts to squeeze the idea for every last penny."
