The lights are on
Few fighting games look as over the top as Street Fighter X Tekken, which pits contestants from the two venerable series against each other. During this weekend's New York Comic Con, Capcom finally revealed the release date for the game, along a five minute trailer that explains all of the features that make this fighting title unique.
The trailer explains Street Fighter X Tekken's gem system (which allows you to choose which power-ups you'll have access to during the match), along with other techniques like launchers, cross rushes, super charges, and much more. Check out the video below for explanations of each technique, along with plenty of gameplay footage.
Street Fighter X Tekken will be available on March 6 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita.

Been looking forward to this game as well as TEKKEN X Street Fighter for a while. Hope it turns out as good as I hope.
My biggest problem with this game is going to be balance. How do they plan to balance out characters from Street Fighter who have projectile attacks with the Tekken characters who are all about combos and melee attacks? Are they just retooling characters to have different attacks? Because that seems like they're just making Tekken characters into Street Fighter characters.
Honestly, I was intrigued by this idea at first but I'm taking a pass because of how it ends up looking like just another Street Fighter game. I like Tekken because it doesn't have all those magical super moves involving fireballs and flaming fists.
This game looks amazing. Capcom has always been great at fighting games and and balancing. (Minus Zanchief) I play Super Street Fighter 4 all the time with my Tekken 6 fight stick. So, I'm mos def looking forward to this.
Im not really big on either games, but they're both good games separately respectively. now with that said, likw wouldn't it make the game a little off balanced? i just would have to pick it up myself won't I?
i'm actually more excited for tekken x street fight.
street fighter is the only fighting game that ive played that i havent been good at or learned the controls for
Just how i like to kick some a*s
*** I'm going to have to use training mode like crazy. There's so much to do and learn. I'm going to hate fighting the real good players online.
Go street fighter!
this game is gonna b epic
This looks to be way deeper than any fighting game I've ever played, which is kind of intimidating.
wow, you most definitely need an arcade stick to play this game. Looks amazing, but I'll wait for the Cheaper, bigger and better version in the near future.
Cant wait to kick some street fighter a**.(tekken fan)
