Not long after Capcom announces Street Fighter X Tekken, Namco Bandai has officially announced its version of the cross-over fighting game, Tekken X Street Fighter.
“The ultimate dream match-up is about to be realized. With this astonishing collaboration, a new chapter in fighting game history begins,” said Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken series director, Namco Bandai Games Inc. “The Street Fighter and Tekken development teams have a great relationship. However, I see this new project not as a collaboration, but as the competition of the century between two legendary fighting game franchises.”
If you’re confused about any of this, here is the break down: Street Fighter X Tekken will be developed by Capcom and will be played using the Street Fighter IV fighting engine. Tekken X Street Fighter will be developed by the Namco Bandai side of things and will be fought with the Tekken fighting engine.
Namco Bandai has stated that each Street Fighter character will get a visual makeover to fit into the Tekken universe. They also promise that each character will have their fighting styles and special moves intact.
