Street Fighter X Tekken video teases two new character reveals

Capcom has just released a video of broken up screenshots and character art, teasing two new characters for Street Fighter X Tekken. Given Capcom’s track record for simultaneously revealing one Street Fighter and one Tekken character at a time, we can safely assume that’s what’s going on here:

While it’s more of a challenge to make out the Tekken character, we’re nearly 100% sure that Dee Jay is the Street Fighter character being revealed here; the shot of his foot is clearly grabbed from his post-game win pose. And if Dee Jay is being revealed, that makes Eddie Gordo a safe bet for the Tekken side. The shots of the bright yellow and green clothing match up with Eddie’s garb perfectly.

But what about the goat from Dhalsim’s stage? A red herring, look to the left and you’ll see a green and yellow pant leg. Think we’re way off base? Are you a huge Sean/Dhalsim/Christie fan that desperately wants your character in SFXT? Let us know in the comments! While you’re at it, check out the 12 matchups we want to see in Street Fighter X Tekken article, and bask in my prophetic powers.

    I don't want Dee Jay in this game, he was so cheap and spammy in SSFIV.

    @quincytheodore - Hwoarang has already been confirmed. If Steve Fox is there it would only make sense if his rival was Balrog or Dudley. Zafina would be a good match for Juri as they're both unusual fight styles. I would prefer Christie like most of the comments here. I'd like to see Bryan, Heihachi and Lei Wulong make an appearance too. And it wouldn't be Street Fighter without Blanka

    Eddie mothafluckin Gordo!

    Good, if not expected addition. I prefer Christie though, maybe as Eddie's alt costume. Next should be Hwoarang / Juri, or maybe Viper / Anna. Steve Fox is probably present, that just leaves who will Capcom pair him with.

    Funny that they announced Eddie Gordo and Deejay at the same time, don't you think? I wonder if Christie Montana will be a continued palette swap for Eddie as well. I know it's wishful thinking but I really hope that Capcom adds: Elena, Alex, and Sean while Namco adds: Konimitsu, Jack X (Jack Vs Zangief awesome line up!), and Alicia.

    Yeah, they are definitely Deejay and Eddie. Don't really care about Dee Jay, but I'm definitely interested to see how eddie plays outside of the Tekken engine, which I haven't really enjoyed since Tekken 3.

    Even if I don't care about Tekken anymore (too button-mashy compared to other fighters), a part of me is still excited from Eddie being speculated. I played Tekken 3 when I was pretty young a ton, and he was one of my favs.
