Enjoy the world’s first trailer of Street Fighter X Tekken!
Ryu showing Kazuya what a Hadouken feels like!
These graphics remind me of Street Fighter IV’s and that’s a good thing in my book.
How will Capcom’s game differ from Namco‘s? Well for now, Chun Li is taking it to Kazuya!
I have a feeling that Capcom will balance their game just right. See…now Nina Williams is beating up Ryu!
Now that’s a classic shot. Ryu unleashing his Shoryuken on Kazuya. More pictures can be viewed at Capcom-Unity.
Here’s the full press release:
SAN DIEGO, CA — July 24, 2010 — Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games today announced that Street Fighter X Tekken is in development for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. The title will make history as fighters from these two bastions of the fighting genre come together for the very first time.
Utilizing the same technology that powered Street Fighter™ IV & Super Street Fighter™ IV, Tekken™ characters such as Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams will make the transition into the Street Fighter™ universe having been re-imagined using the much-loved art style of these seminal titles; while retaining their unique characteristics and signature moves as they go head-to-head with classic brawlers from the Street Fighter franchise in what promises to be the ultimate match up.
As in Street Fighter IV, 2D gameplay will feature fully realized 3D character models battling for domination in both new and familiar highly detailed environments that are brought to life with engaging animations. In addition to modes such as Versus and Training that will feature new enhancements to make the fighting experience more in-depth and enjoyable, Street Fighter X Tekken will include Tag Team combat where players select two fighters to deliver knockout assist attacks and special combos.

Finally, to end this awesome preview of Street Fighter X Tekken, Mr. Yoshinori Ono had this to say, “This is history we’re making. Two fighting games that have rivalled each other are finally standing on the same stage. This isn’t just a showdown between Tekken and Street Fighter, but a decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games. So I’m going to give it my all.”
After the awesome teaser trailer and gameplay footage, I can hardly wait until I see this game again!
