About Street Fighter X Tekken
Two of the greatest fighting game franchises of all time face off in the first of two cross-over melee games that mix Street Fighter and Tekken characters. Street Fighter x Tekken makes history as fighters from these two bastions of the fighting genre come together for the very first time. Utilizing the same 2D viewpoint and technology that powered Street Fighter IV, this game allows for Tekken characters such as Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams to make the transition into the Street Fighter universe having been re-imagined using Capcom's much-loved art style. Their looks may be different, but these characters have retained their own unique characteristics and signature moves as they go head-to-head with classic brawlers from the Street Fighter franchise in what promises to be an explosive match up.

The teams over at Capcom corrected this by making sure that – save for the annual “Super” or &...
