So Ono wasn't joking all this time? I thought he was being sarcastic about the game being released in 2020, but I could understand the challenges they are having. I personally think they shouldn't quit even if takes some time. The reason why I'm excited about this game is solely for the art direction. I feel that Tekken team has improved drastically when it comes down to making their characters look good, so I really can't wait to see how Chun Li turns out. Seeing how Harada has a lot of respect for the Street Fighter series, I guess the project will turn out good. As for now, we can only dream......

I am very curious on how they will do a lot of the Capcom characters that rely so heavy on projectiles/zoning. Tekken is such a in your face, crucial timing and juggle heavy game that shoto's won't seem to have a chance. Not to mention the steeping to the right or left to dodge any projectile will make it hard for shoto's.

We'll see.

That's what I'm saying. It'll be interesting to say the least

I find it hard to imagine projectiles in a Tekken game, which is what this is kind of supposed to be. SF X T was a Street Fighter game basically, this is a Tekken game. I feel like the SF characters might have a few recognisable close-quarters moves, but the rest will just be really normal Tekken kinds of moves, nothing too mad like in SF games. If that's the case though, I can see some SF characters ending up playing similarly to some of the Tekken characters.

However if they leave that SF stuff out it would be pretty blatant. I wonder if it'll really play like a Tekken game? Or if it'll be a weird fusion of Tekken and Street Fighter? I have to say that it'd be pretty impressive if they managed to pull off the latter effectively. Maybe doing just that is what's making development of the game take so long.
