according to Iron fist boss, Harada Katsuhiro, The long-awaited crossover game Tekken X Street Fighter It must be dead, and it was about 30% complete before development stopped.
The game is a follow-up plan for the niche fighting game “Street Fighter x Tekken”. It was released 11 years ago. It was originally supposed to be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. But shortly after the release, all discussions about the game disappeared. Since then, fans have been curious about this title.
But due to some new comments Harada made on his YouTube series Harada’s Bar, the famous active developer confirmed that the Bandai Namco/Capcom partnership has indeed been dead for some time.
“We are really working hard in this area, we are really working hard,” Harada said in a conversation with “Tekken 7” director Ikeda Kohei. “Hope we can show you models and things.”
Obviously, Chunli and Dalsim’s 3D models in Tekken X Street Fighter look great, and they have spent the transition from 2D to 3D well. Harada also boasted that most female characters are “very good.”
Will we see how far the game actually does not go? It sounds impossible: “We hope we can show them to you eventually, but Street Fighter belongs to Capcom, so we can’t do it ourselves,” the developer said.
For some time, text about the fate of the game was also on the wall. As early as 2012, Hada told The Independent that the progress of the game was “not 10%, but almost.” In 2016, the title was announced as “Oh Keep”, and then in 2019, Harada stated that with the popularity of Tekken 7 worldwide, this title is difficult to prove to be correct.
This may not help the fate of the game. In the end, Street Fighter x Tekken also caught fire in 2012.
