Tekken project head Katsuhiro Harada has revealed via his Twitter account that he will soon be conducting a vote on the Tekken Facebook page. Fans will be allowed to vote for the characters that they want to appear in Tekken X Street Fighter.
This vote is great news because it will not only allow the developers to see which characters fans want most, but it will also allow the fans themselves to see. That way we can tell if the developers actually utilized our feedback or not. If I remember correctly, a similar vote was held for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Most of the Capcom characters fans voted into the top ten eventually made it into the final roster, so throwing your vote in really could make an enormous difference. Especially when you consider how often less popular, obscure characters like Street Fighter‘s Karin and Tekken’s Kunimitsu make the roster compared to the Ryus and Kazuyas.
