Capcom announced that in the next crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken, four more characters have been lined up to be featured. The four characters are British boxer Steve, Yoshimitsu, Dhalsim and Poison. Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono slowly revealing about the project Street Fighter X Tekken. He also confirmed that some improvement actions have been taken upon complaints about visual aspects of Street Fighter X Tekken’s UI after E3. Capcom also released ten new screenshots of the crossover fighting game.
The game will be released as expected in 2012 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and for Microsoft Windows. Fourteen fighters have been revealed so far for the crossover. On the Tekken side, players have Kazuya, Nina, King, Marduk, Hwoarang, Julia and Bob. For Street Fighter, it’s Ryu, Ken, Guile, Chun-Li, Abel, Sagat and Cammy.
Ono also reveals some gameplay mechanics for Street Fighter X Tekken which is stated here:
“As for Street Fighter X Tekken, Ono detailed some of the gameplay mechanics. The first he showed was called cross rush, which is basically a combination system that lets players tag into their partners, who will then complete the combination. He also showed switch canceling, which lets players switch characters at will. Additionally, Ono said that all characters would have super art moves like Ryu’s “Shinku Hadouken,” but all of the Tekken characters would have completely original super art moves since the Namco franchise has no comparable technique. The final two gameplay mechanics were for super charge and cross assault. Super charge lets you charge a special move up to three levels, but at the third level, it automatically turns the move into a super art without using any of the cross gauge that normally depletes with the use of a super art. Finally, cross assault is like the dramatic battle mode from the Alpha series, only Ono claims it’s more strategic, but he failed to elaborate on what that meant.”
