SF x Tekken is competition, not collaboration, says Tekken creator

Tekken series creator Katsuhiro Harada has revealed that he doesn’t view the upcoming crossover fighters Street Fighter x Tekken/Tekken x Street Fighter as a collaboration, but instead as a competition between two classic beat ‘em up franchises.

“The Street Fighter and TEKKEN development teams have a great relationship. However, I see this new project not as a collaboration, but as the competition of the century between two legendary fighting game franchises," commented Harada.

"The ultimate dream match-up is about to be realized. With this astonishing collaboration, a new chapter in fighting game history begins."

Both games (one based in the Tekken universe, the other based in Street Fighter’s world) were unveiled for the first time at Comic-Con this past weekend, where Harada demoed Ryu and Chun-Li squaring up against Kazuya and Nina.

“This is history we're making. Two fighting games that have rivalled each other are finally standing on the same stage. This isn't just a showdown between Tekken and Street Fighter, but a decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games Inc., so I'm going to give it my all,” added Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono.

Unfortunately, it’ll be a while before punters will be able to get their mitts on the games, as they won’t be out until around 2012.
