Capcom crack comp for Street Fighter X Tekken

Capcom has big plans for Street Fighter X Tekken, including a $500,000 tournament prize.

Right, time to invest in a new controller and mash it to bits, as Capcom has revealed it is going big with Street Fighter X Tekken.

For years kids have argued over which characters from the two fighting games would come out victorious in an all-out scrap to the death, and soon answers will be found.

Street Fighter X Tekken has been developed by Capcom using the Street Fighter inked artwork and 2D style, with Namco's permission to use the likes of Yoshimitsu, Nina and King.

If you prefer the 3D Tekken style, fear not - Namco is working on Tekken X Street Fighter, with permission to use characters from the latter. However, the style of SF X T has apparently been carefully tweaked to find some sort of middle ground between the two gameplay styles.

Capcom says that the new title will rely heavily on player feedback, with a host of development opportunities in the pipeline, release of which will be led by the reception from gamers.

The firm also insist that the initial retail version will be the only disc copy gamers have to buy, with all later updates coming via downloadable content (DLC) packs.

"Exciting new features and additions will be consistently introduced, allowing fans of the game to tap into a wide variety of robust DLC options that will breathe new life into the product," he said.

This year sees Capcom celebrate 25 years of the Streetfighter series, and to mark the occasion it is also putting $500,000 into a prize pot for SF X T tournaments all across the globe, throughout 2012.

All this will culminate in an ultimate champion of champions face-off in December, details of which will be announced after the game has hit the shelves in early March.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801300047-ADNFCR
