Tekken X Street Fighter 'still in development'

Producer Katsuhiro Harada states Tekken X Street Fighter is still being developed; no new updates on the game announced.

Development on crossover fighting game Tekken X Street Fighter has not ceased, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada has said in a recent interview.

Tekken X Street Fighter still in development, says Harada.

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.

Whatever you do.  DON NOT MAKE IT "FREE TO PLAY" where you have to "buy coins" to keep playing matches.  God I hate all "pay to cheat" and "DLC" games!


"Free to play" but then you have to keep paying is so suck compared to buy the game and you own it.  I don't want to keep paying UNLESS, and this is the only acceptable alternative: yearly online pass!!!

Oh thanks God the game is still in the making. I thought it was being cancelled because of the long absent of news. I'm guessing it will be releasing next year and you can bet your ass that the combat is going to be very very deep.

I really hope when it comes out it's for both current Gen and Next Gen that way everyone is happy. And they make more money that way. 

To be Honest I thought they forgot about this Awesome game. 

This game will be interesting I would love to see my Fav Street Fighters fighting like Tekken Fighters. 

I really hope They release it soon take yur time Namco but don't take too long.

If this comes to PC, which would be EXCELLENT, would that mean future Tekken games will FINALLY be brought to the PC? I can hope, eh?

I am still waiting for Tekken vs Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat vs Capcom vs Marvel vs DC!

I feel that it will get to that point in fighting games.

"We see how Capcom got caught pretty much fucking gamers over and charging them to unlock people that are already on the disc so....we have to change things....ALOT!"

It seemed to me that all of the SF characters were a bit easier to use than the Tekken characters in SFxT.  I felt as though the Tekken characters were nerfed a bit, or at least it felt that way.  Hopefully it will be the other way around, or god forbid, more balanced with this game.

And you better include Baek and Eddie in this one damnit!  You hear that Namco?

So much more interested in this than SFxT.  Wish they'd made this one the priority, instead of the other way around.

This is my most wanted fighting game. Loved Street Fighter X Tekken even though I wasn't A SF fan before. It got me into it. Can't wait for it to come.

Hurry!!!


Actually, I'm fine with Tag Tournament 2. Only one small complaint. 

Namco, why did you go and make Tekken Revolution? You're pulling resources away from Tag. Can't you make DLC costumes or something for Tag 2? I'd buy up all that crap like a lame fanboy in a heartbeat, especially since I would know none of it was on the disc.

Also, I heard that the frame data was fixed for Revolution, I'm not sure if this is correct but if it is, why did you not patch Tekken Tag 2? The frame data can get funky sometimes leading to characters who are why overpowered.

@MarchingOrd3rZ Wishful thinking.  Though.... I am most certainly hoping with you.   I would love to see Tekken on PC from here on out.

@frylock1987 and throw darkstalkers in there for the hell of it too. seriously, with the large spaces on game discs these days, why couldnt they do something like that? it would be the greatest fighting game of all time!

@Grenadeh lol You must be talking about Street Fighter X Tekken, which was made by Capcom. Tekken X Street Fighter on the other hand is being made by Namco, which this article is referring to and also still in development. I guess it can be a little easy to get the two mixed up..

@ZOD777  Absolutely, my two favorite characters are Baek and Jun, and I've been playing/buying Tekken games since the beginning.


The way Tekken moves were reduced so much in SF X Tekken really sucked.

@japanesegoth Namco is not Capcom.......when ever have they done 13 versions of Soul Calibur or Tekken? at best they'll do 1 revision or take the game throw it in a collection.....

@sebetai I personally didn't click with the game, namely because I wanted Tag 2 way more :) 

To each their own though ^_^

@HartPuncher I certainly loved Dino 1, but I have no faith in Capcom creating a new game on it these days.  We would end up with RE 6 -> Dino Crisis likely.  Punching dinosaurs in the face, and maybe dinosaurs piloting helicopters and stuff.  I cringe at the thought of Capcom attempting something new with this series. :s

@MJ12-Conspiracy I agree, I find Namco to have a way different strategy regarding delivering extra content. 

Tekken Tag 2 had tons of content, even without the dlc.. An insane amount. Making fans very happy.

@freedom01 @lil_jon86 hehe I'm trying not to promote another capcom based post.   You're right  This is Namco news. :P

@freedom01 @lil_jon86 funny how many people mix this stuff up even though it seems fairly obvious its made by namco they even say quotes from harada lol...

@derceto @freedom01 @HartPuncher yeah, it went from a big change and Im really afraid what they will do to the franchise if they make a new one, if they just make a HD remastered version of Dino Crisis , that would be great, but changing the gameplay would be terrible
