Yoshinori Ono takes us to Street Fighter X Tekken school

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.

The story is too old to be commented.

None of those games mentioned above are trying to emulate 2D hand drawn art. The art style doesnt look "sloppy" to me at all? Uhh,people will find anything to complain about these days. The presentation of the game looks faithful to the source material on both sides of the fence. The Tekken characters turned out a lot better than I expected. I am also digging the multiple systems used to make this an indepth fighting game. I think this game will be heavily played at tournaments despite it's so called visual defects.

who's complaining - I'm all over SF X TK -- have you seen it up close and personal yet?

"Sloppy art style" Douche bag journalism strikes yet again. The art style is same as Street Fighter 4 and the other later versions. There wasnt any complaints then. Why now? Could you not of made a more justified valid negative comment? Or was it simply you couldnt find one?
