Comic-Con 2010: 2D Street Fighter vs Tekken Officially Announced [Update: Gameplay Video]


Just a short while ago Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono and Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada put on a show for the fighting game fans in the audience before making the big announcements. Capcom and Namco are developing two cross over titles, Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter.

Game play for the former was demonstrated at the event. Street Fighter X Tekken is in 2D and is being developed by Capcom. Tekken X Street Fighter wasn’t shown but is under development by the Tekken team at Namco. That game will be in 3D and is rumored to be based off of the Tekken 6 engine.

Both games will be released for the PS3 and 360 but not for a while according to Ono-san.

Tekken vs Street Fighter? Street Fighter vs Tekken? Sounds good but are two separate games really necessary?

Actual game play after the jump! (thanks marcus24)

    Thanks for the update Marcus.

    I was watching G4TV’s Feed when this game was announced and the guy reporting the game from Comic Con had no idea who Ryu and Chun Li were fighting against. All he said was “a tekken character”.

    Wow awesome video. Thats a pretty cool idea for both companies to make a version of the game. It will allow both companies to put their spin on the game using each of their respected art styles and game mechanics. Really cool.

    I like! They’ve handled the two different game styles in the best possible way by having the two teams make their own games. good to see some original uses of well established series.

    Also with both companies making a version, people with limited funds could buy their favorite series and/or companies game over the other. Plus two games being released also has the potential of making both companies alot more bank.

    I want to try both of these. I’m glad they are making two games because the mechanics of each title are very different. It’ll be fun to see how the characters play in the “alternate universes”. I wonder if the same Nina combos are available in the Street Fighter game.

    This is awesome news, and great that they’re making separate games. It worked for Capcom vs SNK and SNK vs Capcom.
