Tekken x Street Fighter character roster already decided

Speaking during an interview with Famitsu magazine (via Siliconera), the director behind Tekken x Street Fighter confirmed that the crossover fighter’s character roster has already been nailed down.

Katsuhiro Harada told the publication that the team has already gotten "pretty far" into the game’s development, after Famitsu humorously asked whether Bandai Namco Games has forgotten about the long awaited fighter. 

Most interestingly, he said that the character roster was decided "a long time ago" and that Tekken x Street Fighter’s "polygon models, moves and systems" have also been completed.

Tekken x Street Fighter was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con 2010 alongside Street Fighter x Tekken. While its companion title has already seen a release however, Tekken x Street Fighter has been keeping a low profile ever since its initial announcement. 

As expected, the crossover fighter will employ use of the Tekken series’ game engine and features Street Fighter combatants working in a 3D playing field. 

Bandai Namco Games has yet to confirm which platform(s) the game will launch on, but given the fact PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are approaching two years on the market, it’s safe to assume we’ll see a current-generation release. 

Harada-san has previously stepped up to deny rumors of the game’s cancelation, although he made it clear work didn’t started on the game until at least a year after its reveal. The last we heard, the project had around 40 people working on it.
