Capcom & Namco Bandai developing separate Street Fighter-Tekken crossovers, Street Figher III going online
While both were announced at Capcom's Street Fighter Comic-Con panel, only the Capcom-developed Street Fighter X Capcom was shown, as attendees were able to see Ryu and Kazuya Mishima take each other on in a manner similar to Capcom's other crossover titles, with teammate switching and ultra moves taking place. The visual style, meanwhile, mimicks Street Fighter IV. Presumably, Namco Bandai's version will emphasize projectile-free brawling in the vein of its fighters. Nina Williams was named as another character in the game by Capcom in the company's official announcement, while Dan Hibiki was featured in the trailer. The games will be landing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition was also announced during the panel, but no platform was announced for the release. Previous online remasterings of Capcom's classic fighting games have generally landed on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
No release date has been revealed for the three titles, but Capcom has stated that the crossover games will release after the spring-due Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
