Here's another mashup of two games that I think shouldn't be thrown together. Just like the failed Mortal Kombat vs DC, this is another game I think might not work. Do I really care about this fighting game? Not really. I just thought it was interesting nonetheless to see how they will put the two together.
Street Fighter is a very simple (yet complex) fighting game. Each character has a handful of moves and usually a few special moves. Compare this to Tekken, and you have more moves than a NASA shuttle guide. So here's a little blurt and an interview for your enjoyment.
One of the biggest surprises at Capcom's recent Captivate press event was a fully playable demo of Street Fighter X Tekken, the upcoming fighter mash-up that combines the Street Fighter franchise with Namco's Tekken series. Originally announced late last year at San Diego Comic-Con, the game has been kept under wraps, leading many to believe development on it was proceeding slowly. However, producer Yoshinori Ono surprised attendees with a meaty first look at the upcoming game, which included actual hands-on time. While the work-in-progress version we played was far from finished, there were plenty of hints as to where the incredibly promising final combat system is heading.
