We’ve just had the latest release schedule from Bandai Namco and Tekken X Street Fighter is still AWOL. Just like it was when I raised concerns in February last year.
Initially announced for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms five years ago, recent updates have seen the platforms replaced with TBC, raising suspicions that the game will now be coming to the new-gen consoles, the PS4 and Xbox One. Originally we were expecting the game to land a year after Capcom’s Street Fighter X Tekken, but we haven’t even seen a single screenshot, leading to further speculation that the game has been cancelled. Are Bandai Namco set to drop it in order to move forwards with their FTP fighters like Tekken Revolution or Soul Calibur Lost Swords?
Thankfully some of their other titles do have some solid release dates including Tales of Xillia 2, Grid Autosport, The Witcher 3 and the DLC for Dark Souls 2. Continue reading Tekken X Street Fighter Format and Date STILL Missing from Namco’s Schedule →
Where is Tekken X Street Fighter? That’s the question many of us fight fans have been wondering recently. Nobody has even seen a screenshot of the game, and yet it has been two years since Capcom released Street Fighter X Tekken. Namco’s return effort was set to give the Street Fightercharacters a Tekken-style makeover, but it’s been a notorious no-show for years now.
Recently, we were sent a UK release schedule from Bandai Namco (they changed their name around, remember) and thankfully the game was still on there, but the date was only down as TBC. More interestingly, the formats no longer read PS3/360, instead they’ve also been replaced with TBC. The optimists inside us are hoping this means that we could be seeing the game on PS4 and Xbox One -two consoles desperately in need of a decent fighting game. With a relatively small install-base for the new consoles though, we’d still expect the PS3 and 360 (and probably the Vita) to see the game too.
