Street Fighter X Tekken teases new characters, most of whom are fairly obvious

There have been so many character reveals for Street Fighter X Tekken, and the game is coming out soon enough that you might think the devs are out of characters to tease, right? Then Capcom surprises you by dropping three new teaser trailers for multiple fighters in the crossover battler. But just who do these allude to? Some seem fairly obvious, others are real head scratchers. See for yourself…

The first one seems to clearly indicate Dan, Juri and Crimson Viper. The second one is the most baffling, as we can really only discern Mecha-Zangief, and another looks like Dee Jay’s dreads. And the last one pretty much confirms Balrog is in the game. What’s also interesting about these vids is that they seem to be Capcom-centric. Where are the matching Tekken fighter teasers? We’re betting Capcom will shed some light on this conundrum next week at the New York City Comic-Con. In the meantime, do you have any guesses?

    Off course, people have to remember that some of the stuff shown in these trailers are Red Herrings. For example, Viper and Dan in the first vid are actually shots taken from Street Fighter IV and not SF x Tekken.

    Actually, there's current speculation that only 3 playable characters are being shown in these teasers and the other 6 are red herrings. The key is looking at the BACKGROUNDS of where the characters are. Some of them are Street Fighter IV backgrounds while one from each are new Street Fighter X Tekken backgrounds. If true, the characters being teased are: 1 - Juri 2 - Vega 3 - Balrog OR R. Mika

    I really wanted to watch the videos, but considering that they are only 47 seconds long, and the ads before them are 30 seconds long... Yea, I'll just wait to be surprised.

    I thought we'd seen more or less the last of the character reveals last time, but now with this load as well...gonna be a lot of characters. Which, of course, is excellent. I hope the single player/story mode is decent, especially if all the endings/cutscenes have to be comical non-canon stuff, it'll be fun to see what they do.

    First video: Juri, C.viper, Go Hibiki (Dan is Dead. Or maybe zombie Dan. Or maybe just part of the story) Second video: Eddy(?), another tekken guy, return of alt costumes or bosses.( No way robo-gief is in) Third Video: Supposedly, Bryan, Balrog (Boxer, it's his boot), R.Mika (It's her sleeve.) I'm most hype for R.Mika. I always wanted to paly as her, and I would love to see how my favorite characters, like Sagat or Hugo, or another charater to try out, Poison, pairs up with her.

    First Video: Dan(or his dad), Juri, Viper Second Video: Deejay, Gen, Alt. Costume Hint Third Video: Guy, Balrog, Maybe R.Mika, although at the beginning, it shows a larger waste wearing a black shirt and a white waste band which kinda looks like Honda, but who knows. The greatest news about all this? thats at least 8 new street fighter characters, which means at least 8 new Tekken ones. considering that they are presented as teams and we already have two characters announced that don't have a team member (Zangief and Lili) this would mean that there are even more characters, putting the total at 42-44. holy crap that is a lot!

    Out of them the only one I really care about is Juri, also the the purple thing in the second video looks reminiscent of Alisa's hair
