It is known that the project Tekken X Street Fighter, the crossover that was going to the characters of Tekken and Street Fighter from the three-dimensional prism of the Namco classic, took off and began its development, but its release was delayed For the discreet success of Street Fighter X Tekken? It’s a possibility, but it seems that reality, as explained by the team’s boss after Tekken, Katsuhiro Harada, was something different.
” We started creating 3D models and I liked them a lot, they looked great, and the project advanced up to 30% approximately. However, when we were ready to move forward with the project, Capcom launched Street Fighter V and we Tekken 7. Those titles are two of the best fighting games in history and were very successful, “Harada acknowledged to the VGC portal, ” I started wondering if I wanted to compete with those titles, since I could end up dividing the community. “
” That was a serious consideration from the marketing perspective, “Harada said,” so I decided to Suspend the launch of the game for one or two years After the decision, it turned out that Tekken 7 is now working very well as a service game (…) which makes it much more difficult to justify the release of another game, While Tekken 7 still does so well. ” The developer, however, has acknowledged that it is interested in realizing the crossover encore.
” I was thrilled to see how well Bandai Namco turned 2D characters like Akuma from Street Fighter or Geese from The King of Fighters in 3D models and made them really attractive visually. I’m passionate and excited to do it … but my logical and commercial thinking makes me wonder if we really should make it happen. I’m emotionally ready for Tekken X Street Fighter and I still want to launch the game, “I explained.
However, even though I want to continue the project, things have changed since 2012. I need to talk to Capcom again, they may not give him the green light now. & Quot;
