Street Fighter X is to be developed by Capcom, whilst Tekken X Street Fighter shall be developed by Namco.
“This is history we’re making,” said Street Fighter IV series producer Yoshinori Ono. “Two fighting games that have rivalled each other are finally standing on the same stage. This isn’t just a showdown between Tekken and Street Fighter, but a decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games, so I’m going to give it my all.”
Tekken series sirector Katsuhiro Harada commented: “The ultimate dream match-up is about to be realised. With this astonishing collaboration, a new chapter in fighting game history begins. The Street Fighter and Tekken development teams have a great relationship. However, I see this new project not as a collaboration, but as a competition of the century between two legendary fighting game franchises.”
Street Fighter X Tekken is going to be released on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Based on the Street Fighter IV engine the game will introduce a two on two tag team fighting.
