Street Fighter X Tekken for Vita gets 12 more fighters
Blanka, Sakura, Bryan, Lei, and more added to portable version as Capcom promises no disc-based double dip for console editions of crossover fighter; Vita game set for fall release.
PlayStation Vita players will need to wait a few extra months for the launch of Street Fighter X Tekken, but Capcom is hoping to make it worth the wait with a dozen extra characters.
Capcom today announced a fall release date for the PS Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken and detailed a dozen new fighters--six from each franchise--that will appear first on the handheld edition of the crossover fighter. Representing the Street Fighter side of things will be Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, and Sakura, while Tekken stalwarts will welcome Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack, Lars Alexandersson, and Lei Wulong.
The publisher also dropped a bit of news on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Street Fighter X Tekken, which are set to launch March 6 in North America and March 9 in Europe. Capcom promised a robust slate of downloadable content for the game, as well as a post-launch game update to tweak the gem-selection process to be more tournament friendly. More substantial updates will follow, and Capcom has promised that "all future upgrades will come from post-launch DLC," so there won't be an "Ultimate" or "Super" double dip of the game later on. A PC version of Street Fighter X Tekken has also been set for release on May 11.
