Street Fighter X Tekken Trailer and Gameplay


Every so often there comes a game that every gamer would turn their head to get a look at. At the San Diego 2010 Comic-Con, one such a game has been announced. To the delight of fighter fans everywhere, Capcom has revealed Street Fighter X Tekken. And be you a fan of either franchise (or even neither), no doubt your face has just been melted off by this shocking and impressive announcement. It has been many years coming, but soon we will know which of the two popular fighting franchises will be the champion.

Special thanks to RajmanGamingHD for getting some awesome gameplay footage!

Street Fighter X Tekken borrows heavily from the Street Fighter 4 engine, where characters will match off against each other on a 2D plane.

At the show it was also revealed that Namco-Bandai will be developing their own fighter called (can you guess?), Tekken X Street Fighter. This version of the fighter will be produced by Tekken veteran, Katsuhiro Harada. There is currently no information on Namco’s fighter, but taking cues from Capcom’s version of the game, we can assume that it will be built using the Tekken engine.

Two franchises, two games, two flavors, how much more excited can you get? The only way we could be more thrilled is to hear the release date for the game. Which, sadly, just doesn’t exist yet. But you can be sure that we will keep tabs on this one, so stay tuned for more.

Does this mean we may soon see a Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat? Maybe. Let’s just hope it won’t take ten years before we see it.
