Remember Tekken X Street Fighter? If you were worried Bandai Namco had forgotten all about their crossover fighting game, don’t be, Tekken Series Producer Katsuhiro Harada recently told Famitsu (via Siliconera) that the game is deep into development:
“I’ve been saying this since before, but the fact of the matter is that we’re at a pretty far stage into [Tekken X Street Fighter’s] development.”
“It might seem like we haven’t started on it at all, but the character lineup has been decided upon since a very long time ago, and we’ve already finished the polygon models, moves, and systems.”
Originally announced in 2010, and barely mentioned in the half-decade since, Tekken X Street Fighter appears to be closer now than its ever been before. We still don’t know many concrete details, but progress is apparently being made. Harada’s busy schedule is likely the cause for the game’s delay, as Harada recently oversaw the development of Tekken 7 and Pokken Tournament. With both of those games ready to make their arcade debut, the developer can now turn his full attention to Tekken X Street Fighter.
Street Fighter X Tekken has been available since 2012.
