Street Fighter x Tekken for PS Vita coming in fall, bringing 12 new characters

Need a reason to pick up Street Fighter X Tekken for PlayStation Vita? How about a dozen? Today, Capcom revealed that while a portable version of its crossover fighter won't be released until the latter half of 2012, it will feature 12 additional characters.

The PS Vita add-ons will include combatants from both franchises. Street Fighter fans will get Elena, Guy, Sakura, Blanka, Cody, and Dudley; while Tekken enthusiasts will be greeted with Alisa, Christy, Jack, Brian, Lars, and Lei.

It's possible these new characters will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 as DLC sometime after the PS Vita version lands in fall. For now, console owners will have to take solace in the fact they get to play Street Fighter X Tekken months earlier when it arrives on March 6 in North America, and March 9 in Europe. PC owners will also have a slight advantage, with their version expected to drop in May.

Street Fighter x Tekken has been in the public eye since its debut at Comic Con 2010. Check out the latest characters announced for the PC version, and the iconic/bizarre video game characters recently revealed as PS3 and PS Vita exclusives.

    I was going to comment 'lulz ultimate arcade version' but everybody else is already doing that. I wonder how much farther capcom can push this business strategy

    All I read was, "wait until the super edition comes out rather than buying the first edition."

    I should probably be pissed off, but I doubt I would have bought SFxT shortly after it came out on consoles anyway, so maybe by the time I DO buy it I'll have a Vita, or the inevitable Super version will be out. The same thing happened with SFIV, I wanted it, but I didn't want to pay full price, then by the time the price dropped Super SFIV had been announced...so I guess I'll give it some time.

    Ah, Elena. Nice to know there will be a 3D version of everyone's favorite underwear wearing Street Fighter. Also nice to know she'll get to duke it out against Christie.

    I'm still going to get the ps3 version and end up playing an atrocious price for the characters, I just hope that there's some sort of licensing issue with namco that stops them re-releasing it after two months as super street fighter x tekken: ultimate arcade edition.

    I'll just wait for the now-completely-inevitable Super Street Fighter X Tekken Subtitle. This is serious bullshit. Super Street Fighter IV was awesome. It's okay for Street Fighter games to be have multiple iterations because there are usually some good changes made. Aside from the atrocious Arcade Edition, that is. But now they're just doing this for every fighting game they release. Which makes sense now, because it's clear at this point that fighting games are all Capcom can do anymore.

    "It's possible these new characters will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 as DLC sometime after the PS Vita version lands in fall." Yeah, this is capcom were talking about. Its most likely we wont see those characters on the PS3/360 for about a year, when they release the 'Championship' edition at a slightly reduced retail price...

    Ok, this is it! I'm not buying this.
  • J-spit - February 21, 2012 12:18 p.m.

    Why are companies doing this. I shouldn't have to miss out because I like games on my TV. This goes for MK Vita and those new alts as well. Wtf, man?
  • BladedFalcon - February 21, 2012 11:08 a.m.

    Elena?? Huh, cool. And wow, I figured that Christy and Jack would make it into the main roster of the console version... Oh well. If I do get a Vita this year, I'll most likely want to play this version. It jsut gonna have so many more characters, not only these 12, but also Cole, Pac-Man, And that awesome, awesome paunchy Mega-Man XD

    Well isn't that just fucking retarded. Thanks for putting me off Street Fighter, Capcom.
