When did fighting games become so academic? Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono gives an extensive tutorial on all of the new features in the upcoming game Street Fighter X Tekken. The game continues to impress with its fast fighting mechanics and action however there’s a handful of things that concern us. Street Fighter X Tekken doesn’t look ‘beautiful’ like SoulCalibur V, Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom and/or Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It has a very ‘sloppy’ art style going in and even has pixelated frames when the camera zooms in for an extreme close-up.
Overall Street Fighter X Tekken looks to be a push in the right direction, however the closer we get to the release of the game and all the gimmicks surrounding it – we start to wonder if this is the proper direction to go or not. 2012 is another crowded year for top fighting games – we’ll continue to bet and put our faith in the team at Capcom to release yet another outstanding game in the long running franchise.
