Development on crossover fighting game Tekken X Street Fighter has not ceased, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada has said in a recent interview.
Speaking to Siliconera, Katsuhiro Harada stated that the game is "still in development" and that there were "several reasons" why no recent updates on the project have been announced recently.
"One of the reasons is, Street Fighter X Tekken was released. That still had updates until recently. One interesting thing we’ve seen with that title when it came out was that it’s not quite what we expected." Harada said.
The producer made reference to Street Fighter X Tekken's reception, saying, "It was not just Tekken fans and Street Fighter fans merging, there seems to be a whole new community growing around that title that wasn’t playing either of the titles up until that point. That was very unexpected, but quite cool."
In a bid to support the new community, Harada stated that Namco Bandai was still looking for "the right time" to release Tekken X Street Fighter.
Tekken X Street Fighter was first announced alongside Street Fighter X Tekken in 2010. The two games are separate projects, with Namco Bandai taking up the reins for Tekken X Street Fighter and Capcom releasing Street Fighter X Tekken last year.
