With the recent string of news about Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 having been announced some time ago fans of the series may been wondering about Tekken x Street Fighter.
Never fear, according to a recent interview of Katsuhiro Harada on Korean site inven Tekken x Street Fighter is still happening and “Tekken x Street Fighter’s base system is already finished.” This does muddy things a little bit as far as release dates go. Harada also said that they plan to finish Tekken 7 and its updates before finishing Tekken x Street Fighter and that they would also be releasing it strategically as to not cause any problems.
Having Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V come out before the crossover makes perfect sense. The only downside of that for fans looking forward to it is that the release date sounds pretty far away. With Street Fighter V not releasing until sometime in 2015 or maybe even 2016, as it’s only 20% done, you could be waiting for a while. Silver lining: It’s still happening.
