No, your eyes do not deceive you - following Capcom’s announcement of Street Fighter X Tekken, comes Namco Bandai’s official announcement of Tekken X Street Fighter. Set to change the fighting game landscape forever, players will get the best of both worlds, pitting the might of the greatest video game fighters of all time against each other within the Tekken universe.
Tekken X Street Fighter will invite Street Fighter characters into the Tekken universe for the very first time. Each Street Fighter character will receive a Tekken visual makeover while keeping their fighting style and special moves fully intact. Once there, players will discover for themselves whether theyâ€™re really a match for the lethal power of the Tekken alumni.
â€śThe ultimate dream match-up is about to be realized. With this astonishing collaboration, a new chapter in fighting game history begins,â€ť said Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken series director, Namco Bandai Games Inc. â€śThe 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.â€ť
Spanning over a 14 year legacy, Tekken is among the most popular and well-known gaming brands in the world with the entire franchise selling more than 39 million units globally to date.
An exact release date has not yet been announced, Xboxic will keep you updated.
