Tekken x Street Fighter still coming for current-gen systems

Namco Bandai's upcoming Tekken x Street Fighter is still scheduled for release on current systems despite the two-year wait.

"There's still a large number of players out there with a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 who are looking forward to the game," Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada said. "So we feel it's probably more relevant to get the title out to them on the current hardware."

Harada added that they're "not completely sure, but that's the direction at this moment."

Tekken x Street Fighter was announced back in 2010 alongside the Capcom-developed Street Fighter x Tekken, which released earlier this year. The upcoming game will place Street Fighter's roster in a 3D area, rather than the opposite.
