Producer says continuing success of Tekken 7 has left him “wondering if I really should” finish and release the long delayed spin-off.
Why did you even agree to the collaboration if you had little to no intention of upholding your end of the deal?
well its just like when he said there wont be any DLC for Tekken 7 but here we are with a season pass 2 for characters that were default selectable in previous games and paying for Tekken Bowl if you wish to play it even though it was a mode that was an unlockable in Tekken TAG Tournament on the PS2.
Look at the EVO reg list. Tekken is currently surpassing Street Fighter for the first time ever. (Both are superceded by Smash Ultimate, and DBFZ fell off hard from #1 last year to currently #7)
Because that happens in business sometimes. Actually...it just happens in life sometimes.
Just create it and let it shine
I say just make an All Star type game within Tekken and include characters from other fighting games. You already had Geese and Akuma, keep that going with more characters from SNK and Capcom.
You mean Tekken Tag Tournament?
Not exactly, I'm thinking more like Tekken vs SNK vs Capcom vs Virtual Fighter and so on.
So even more success is a bad thing?
Every game is successful?
You dont know until you try. I can guarantee it wont be successful in its current state.
I can kinda understand Street Fighter X Tekken was a financial disaster, Harada probably thinks Tekken X Street Fighter will be the same.
Rightfully so, I don't see why I would need to buy it if it's just gonna be Tekken 7 with street fighter characters.
A shame, really. I've always liked Tekken's fighter system more than Street Fighter's.
I don't know. That seems like the easy answer but Tekken 7 has proved that TxSF could be a major success. Just look at Eliza, Akuma, and Geese. 2d characters that work beautifully in Tekken. Harada isn't blind to that. If it happens it will happen next gen when Tekken 7 officially loses momentum.
Keep in mind when SFxT was released Capcom was on top of the fighting games industry, the game was riding the momentum of SF4 and MVC3 but despite that the game was still bombed Just because T7 is a success doesn’t automatically mean TxSF will be.
Also keep in mind that Capcom had ZERO practice with making Tekken characters shine on a 2d plane. Couple that with shady business practices and you have a real disaster. Namco on the other hand has been testing 2d characters since Tekken Revolution and it has shown. Sure, no game is going to have automatic success but compared to Capcom, Namco has been making the right moves for the future.
Why don't they just release street fighter characters in tekken 7?
We all want SF vs MK Tekken is irrelevant
The most successful competitive fighting franchise is irrelevant, nice try lol.
Dang is it really the most successful?
what? and have all that sjw desexualising bs excuse and woke shit cross over? No thanks. R Mika Butt Slap and Cammy angle intro edits were enough.
Incel spotted. lol.
Thats no way to talk about yourself.
Well I'm going to assume you were all born in the Fortnite era because MK vs SF was one of the most requested things growing up in the 90s
I'd rather KI vs MK
This still exists? I thought we moved on.
It can't be worse than Street Fighter x Tekken. I would think Akuma's reception in Tekken, alongside said success, would have made it an easier decision, especially with the fighting genre as healthy as it's been in years right now.
Nobody wanted this, they wanted Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter!
Yeah, the nobodies wanted SF VS MK, you're right.
MK vs SF? That would be like MK vs DC 2. Weak.
This is kind of a shitty attitude towards a collaboration. Especially since Capcom already made their version of the deal. I was honestly excited to play a Tekken based version of the Street fighter characters. Looks like they have basically cancelled it and are too chicken to just say it straight up
I don’t think the Tekken cast can handle street fighter characters to be honest. Look at how Akuma just dominates with jump ins and SF style combos on Tekken 7.
Lmao, you've never played Tekken if you think that, btw Harada buffed Akuma because people thought he was weak lol.
Oh please I’ve played EVERY Tekken and people are asking for a nerf for Akuma. Clearly you have no idea what you’re talking about. Akuma is a serious problem. His jump ins are almost impossible to stop due to Tekken characters not having anti airs. His EX DP can be linked into almost anything. He has all kinds of cross overs, tech traps and mix ups while in the air. You are out of your mind if you think Akuma can’t easily dominate Tekken characters. If you make ONE mistake against Akuma 90% of your life bar is gone just ONE mistake. Akuma is OP not broken but borderline.
How about they finish Tekken 7 first?
Have you seen the online and offline offerings? It's embarrassing.
@chazjamie Good point, the older Tekken games used to have a lot more modes. I wouldn't hold my breath this Tekken will get them all though.
too many time passed since SFxT, just let this project be forgotten already
So then do not make promises you knew full well you couldn't keep....Gosh!!!
Just make SF X Tekken compatible with Xbox One and move along.
MK vs Killer instinct
Well you actually have to make it a game people want to play too, don't just shove the characters in and expect success.
One of my favorite game waiting for this
