Street Fighter X Tekken producer and all-around Street Fighter guru Yoshinori Ono might seem like he's eager for the heroes of Capcom's signature one-on-one fighting series to take on all-comers – so far, the Street Fighter universe has expanded to include fighters from Marvel, SNK, Tatsunoko, Tekken, Rival Schools and wherever the hell Street Fighter 2010 is set – but there are limits to how far these crossovers will go. Since the playground battles between SF2 and the original Mortal Kombat, American fans have been eager to see the two series link up – but Ono says the match wouldn't work. Not that he doesn't have a few backhanded words of praise for his friendly rivals...
North American and European PlayStation Vita hopefuls will have to edit their holiday wish lists, as Sony today confirmed its forthcoming handheld will not be shipping to European or US consumers until early 2012...
The ability for Sony's upcoming Vita to function as a PS3 controller was revealed by Sony Europe R&D manager Phil Rogers at Develop Conference 2011. The Vita/PS3 compatibility is very similar to the way the GBA and Nintendo GameCube could be used in tandem, but Rogers went on to give a few examples of how Sony’s technology is different from any predecessors and how he thinks this technology could be used in new ways…
One of the most boring conversations in gaming currently pertains to whether or not games are art. We'll finish that tired exchange right now: yes, games are art, shut the hell up about it. What's far more interesting is gaming inspiring art, which has been happening for years with the brilliant art series iam8bit. Now the pop art collective is premiering a whole new exhibition next week with SUPER iam8bit, and we've got an exclusive preview of the amazing art and accompanying book right here...
While plenty of the Street Fighter X Tekken cast members are no-brainers – you'd hardly put “Street Fighter” or “Tekken” in a title then not include Ryu, Guile, Yoshimitsu or one of that dastardly Mishima clan – some of the second-tier inclusions are less of a known quantity. A title like this is duty-bound to include a few characters on the basis of fan-service, and the best audience for teasing such additions is one made up of the fighting-game cognoscenti – so when the EVO tournament in Las Vegas was the location for revealing some ambiguous new footage, there wasn't too much confusion as to which Tekken fan-favorite would be making it into the crossover. Capcom's latest addition, however, is a little more mysterious...
Sony’s Kaz Hirai announced that the PlayStation Vita will launch during the holiday season this year at the company’s E3 2011 press conference. However, Hirai didn’t specify a global launch, leading many to assume that Japan would see Sony’s new handheld first. That’s what happened with the PSP, which saw a December 12, 2004 launch in Japan before arriving in North America in March the following year.
But it looks like third-party publisher 505 Games may have leaked Sony’s plans for a global launch for the Vita via a press release sent to US and UK media outlets hailing a fall 2011 launch for Supremacy MMA on the PS Vita...
Street Fighter X Tekken is a game about impossibly muscular roving brawlers using magic spells on debatably female gang enforcers, a premise so sound it's difficult to imagine the title inspiring any sort of oddity. However, Comic-Con in the middle of a heatwave will bring out the contrived craziness in everyone, even game producers. So when Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada presented Capcom's Yoshinori Ono with the very reasonable request that Harada should appear within the upcoming title, Ono's response was obvious: they should fight for it. On video...
]Looking to physically touch a PlayStation Vita to your actual skin? You'll have the opportunity in a couple of months – provided you can get to the Tokyo Game Show. Sony's new handheld, formally named at this year's E3, will be available for members of the public to sample and marvel over at the September event. This was the promise of SCE's Japanese president, Hiroshi Kawano, who has also pledged answers to many of consumers' other questions about the device...
Since last year’s Comic-Con and the astonishing announcement of Namco and Capcom coming together for Street Fighter X Tekken and the yet to be seen Tekken X Street Fighter, we’ve seen some interesting matches during previews. There’s been Ryu vs Kazuya, Dhalsim vs Yoshimitsu, and Poison vs our sexual identity, but this video from Comic-Con yesterday trumps them all, as Street Fighter chief Yoshinori Ono faced Tekken franchise head Katsuhiro Harada in a series of increasingly silly physical challenges...
