Capcom: Street Fighter X Tekken will sell 2 million units by March 2012

financial report published by Capcom this week gives Street Fighter X Tekken a release date of “TBA.” However, within the same report, Capcom announced that it's confident that it can, not just to deliver the fighting crossover, but sell approximately 2 million units by the end of March 2012.

Meanwhile, Tekken X Street Fighter, Namco's complementary brawler, is more of an unknown contender. Katsuhiro Harada, boss of the Tekken series (yep, even higher up than Heihachi), says he still hasn't started work on the title. With a digital Tekken movie and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 well underway, Harada's not yet had time to fully consider the free reign he commands over Capcom's signature pugilists: “If they go down the Dead or Alive route and Chun-Li comes out rather sexy, we can’t say anything,” joked Capcom's Yoshinori Ono last month.

But then, that liberty goes both ways – so if 2012 sees Jin Kazama delivering taunts like, “I'm too busy to fight you right now! Try in a few months!” you'll know why.

    Pretty ballsy statement but seeing as its capcom I can completely believe that. Also the gap between the AE update for SSFIV and SFxT would be pretty long I'm sure.

    I'm not so sure about two million. There's no doubt that this'll sell, but most people aren't going to have enough spare bills to buy Arcade edish and xTekken unless they both stay under $20.

    Honestly, I think they can do it if they try hard enough.

    “If they go down the Dead or Alive route and Chun-Li comes out rather sexy, we can’t say anything.” Chun-Li would look REALLY out-of-character if she had a flat DoA butt. I hope that never happens...
