For those that like to test out combos and take on a challenge or two. there is the Training and Challenge modes included. Training simply allows for testing out characters without the constant bashing from the A.I. Challenge gives a host of trials and missions, giving you the ability to finely polish your skills or take on something that requires more than your average button mash.

There is even a customization included that takes full advantage of the front touch screen on the PS Vita, giving you the chance to spruce up the characters a bit from their colour, quick combo and the gem unit. The gem system is one thing that has been highlighted for Street Fighter X Tekken as the new thing that created a difference. It gives you the ability to provide you with some advantages during your endless conquests and every character has something different that they can have access to.

There was something that did jump out at me, and that was the awesome audio accompanying the whole game, from the amazing eye-catching intro with a rock soundtrack, to the upbeat game menu music. Street Fighter X Tekken knows how to fling some catchy music at you, even the sound effects of every punch and kick you thrash out makes every impact feel solid after hitting its target.

One thing is for sure, there is a ton of content to sink into. The exceptional wide range of characters for a fighter, solid mechanics, and visually immersive gamplay will do more than enough to appease gamers. The loading times between matches could use a tweak and the amount of options could possibly scare a few. But Street Fighter X Tekken on the PS Vita is a solid all round fighter that takes the complete package of the PlayStation 3 and gives you more on the go.
