Street Fighter X Tekken comes out March 6, gets special edition and new fighter teaser trailers

Just like at San Diego Comic Con, Capcom is out to make a big splash at New York City’s comic convention. Obviously that means the game publishing giant brought tons of new details for arguably its biggest upcoming game, Street Fighter X Tekken. The crossover fighter has been heavily teased over the last year, with hints to the many characters from both franchise’s that’ll be included, but today’s biggest SFXT news involved one secret finally being revealed. We now know the game goes on sale March 6 in the US, with Europe getting it March 9.

Along with the news of release date came the first talk of any preorder bonuses, all of which seem to involve in-game items called “Gems” which are used to modify fighters. They didn’t say which Gems would be offered by which retailers, but they did mention you’ll get the huge pile of Gems that are in the disparate preorder offers by buying the special edition of Street Fighter X Tekken which includes nine more exclusive Gems on top of other goodies.

You get a “Build-It-Yourself Arcade Cabinet Bank” that’s about five inches high and a prequel comic by renowned art team UDON in addition to 45 total in-game Gems. No price is mentioned yet for the massive package, but the special edition has only been confirmed for PS3 and 360, not the PS Vita and PC versions.

Capcom also released another trio of teaser trailers. While the last batch seemed very Street Fighter focused, this newest grouping looks to balance things out by emphasizing Namco’s fighters. We’re pretty sure we spotted Xiao, Paul and Mokujin for sure. Who else did you spot in these?

    Think I might just wait for the inevitable extended edition for less money. I've really lost faith in Capcom.

    Unfortunately, I'm kinda in the same boat. It's a shame that Capcom has caused so much distrust among their fanbase. I'm nervous about paying for the "early adopters fee" of buying Street Fighter X Tekken in fear that there will be a Street Fighter X Tekken Ultimate or Super or whatever edition within 12 months afterwards. If there are others with the same thoughts and it costs Capcom sales, they only have themselves to blame for double dipping with their other recent fighting games.

    Hmmm, March 6, 2012 you say? Well Capcom, I can tell you chose this date with care.

    I played SF x T at Comic Con, and was totally surprised seeing TDar's former cast member Brett Elston recording footage for Capcom. What a pleasant surprise. And the game feels and plays pretty good.

    Very excited.

    The first teaser trailer has small hints at Mokujin, Marshall Law, and (possibly) Lars Alexandersson. The second teaser hints at Devil Jin, Paul Phoenix, and Dragunov. The last teaser hints at Ling Xiaoyu, Zafina, and what might appear to be Alisa Boskonovitch. Damn it, Namco! Stop torturing us with all of these characters! Teasers like these are the reason why we want them ALL in the game! >:I
