Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Street Fighter x Tekken
Street Fighter X Tekken has launched for PS Vita. The handheld version of the fighter features 55 brawlers, a gallery mode, multiplayer via 3G or Wi-Fi, front and rear touchpad support, near functionality, Cross-Play support with the PS3 version, and the new skill-based Burst Kumite survival mode.
Capcom’s latest console crossover fighter has landed on the App Store today with the launch of Street Fighter x Tekken Mobile. Available for a limited-time promotional price of $2.99, SFxT Mobile features redesigned controls, 10 fighters, the new Gauntlet Mode survival mode, and multiplayer versus over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Global rankings are also available through Game Center.
Sure, you have your Street Fighter Anniversary Collection and your Street Fighter Alpha Anthology, but those pale in comparison to the wallet-crushing mammoth that Capcom has unleashed today: the $149.99 Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set for 360 and PS3. A full breakdown is available below, but gamers with the scratch can look forward to four games with their accompanying DLC, a Ryu statue, an 11-disc soundtrack, a 64-page hardcover art book, a two-disc Blu-ray set with the I am Street Fighter documentary, and more.
The celebration for Street Fighter’s quadranscentennial is set to kick off properly this weekend in Austin, TX, with the first round in a global tournament series taking place July 28-29. Registration is free and currently open, but a refundable $20 is required in order to book a spot. The tournament will culminate in a grand finals event on December 8 in San Francisco, with fights taking place amongst those who have qualified throughout the year at the various preliminary tournaments. The series will host a number of titles: Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online Edition, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
The Street Fighter X Tekken character DLC originally scheduled to launch with the PS Vita version this fall has been bumped up to July 31. The 1600 MS Point/$19.99 drop includes 12 characters, an even split with six for the Street Fighter roster and six for the Tekken: Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, Sakura, Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson, and Lei Wulong.
Capcom is bringing more of their brawlers to the App Store with Street Fighter x Tekken Mobile. The portable version, set to launch this summer, will be based off the console release but redesigned for touchscreen controls. The mobile version will also include new modes and a new form of the tag mechanic. The four-character roster includes Chun-Li, Kazuya, Nina, and Ryu.
Capcom’s major announcements—Resident Evil 6, Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set—were all made well before E3. However, they still had plenty to show with new shots of DmC Devil May Cry, Lost Planet 3, Resident Evil 6, and Street Fighter X Tekken for Vita.
Capcom announced that they will be celebrating Street Fighter’s 25 years throughout 2012 with a host of tournaments and a new Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set. The $149.99 limited release, which will include everything from an 11-disc soundtrack to a two-disc documentary, will be available on September 18 for the 360 and PS3—but it is only part of their ‘The Year of the Dragon’ campaign for 2012. There will be global tournaments in addition to the Collector’s Set, with the studio putting up over half a million in support, a figure Capcom estimates as “the highest the fighting game community has ever witnessed.” Both are detailed below.
