Tekken X Street Fighter could have 6-button system, 1 versus 1

Posted by Nate 'Nyoro' Young • January 23, 2012 at 8:08 a.m. PST
Tekken X Street Fighter could have 6-button system, 1 versus 1 Harada was answering fan questions on Twitter and being his usual self when he started dropping more hints about the direction that Tekken X Street Fighter could go.

What you thinking about fighting system for TxSF? Is it going to be tag-team only, like SFxTK? - GreatKungLao

Harada: Considering 1 vs 1.

Will Street Fighter characters run on a 6 button or 4 button control scheme? - WingedAngelPit

Harada: I'll test 6 button system.

What would you like to see from Tekken X Street Fighter when it comes to gameplay systems and their respective configurations?

Tip submitted by Goodbye18000 who asked the question about buttons.

He's so straightforward, you gotta respect Harada for that.

Yeah man. Harada is boss unlike a certain producer who never gives anything straight and puts winking smiley faces in all of his posts

Harada-san is like the opposite.

Ono's answer would be:

-Ohhh I'll be answer that in late march, look forward to it ;D

Don't get me wrong though, i love Ono

I hope it has a gem system

TxSF should be four button layout. If its gonna play like tekken then 6 buttons might be too much. I would hope come time to decide they go with a four button layout, more importantly i hope its 1v1 cause sfxt already messed that up.

#7
zUkUu said on January 23, 2012 at 8:16 a.m.

I think they should keep the 4 button layout. 2on2 tag team like TTT2 maybe, seeing it's a crossover title. wouldn't mind 1on1 tho, as I like that even more.

What I'd like to see are 'special' moves tho along with cacnable pokes. keep the rest from tekken (minus ground bounce combos... sh!t is tedious to endure).

#8
LitchiFayeLing said on January 23, 2012 at 8:16 a.m.

because people don't ask him what characters are in when they know full well Ono/Seth can't answer that? I'll bet money that Harada won't be some generous with the info once they get to character reveals.

@9 I agree people didnt really ask,and the game isnt even started yet once it gets started I doubt he will tell people who is in and who is not

shades_of_grey said on January 23, 2012 at 8:46 a.m.

Harada is pretty direct with his answers, like the polar opposite of Ono. A few people have pointed this out already, but it was the first thing I thought about after reading. You're still cool though, Ono.

I think SFxT is too bold. They should of made it a street fighter game with also a tekken cast and juggling elements that both could use (a.k.a the build before all the crap). Now with Pandora and gems, the quality has definitely degraded from build to build. I'm hopeful, but not optimistic.

#15
LongSky said on January 23, 2012 at 8:58 a.m.

I would rather have it be optional for both 1v1 and tag as having a cross over title with just a single bout fight seems kind of boring. My biggest question would have to be how much at a disadvantage some of the SF cast who use projectiles would be since the game won't be a 2D fighter. In SFxT the Tekken characters seemed to have the answer as they can wave dash.

#16
ArcShawdow said on January 23, 2012 at 9:04 a.m.

I actually see fireballs not being useful outside of juggles and combos in tekken. a side step completely destroys zoning so i can see Ryu doing a juggle, a small combo, and a hadouken to finish it. Not so sure about just firing one across screen though lol

#17
MannieFresh555 said on January 23, 2012 at 9:11 a.m.

well yall can talk about Ono as much as you like, but who do you think will have the better game? I'm pretty sure Capcom's version will sell more copies just because its a Capcom style game. Tekken is fun and all, but it doesn't compare to SF in my opinion

#18
genra17 said on January 23, 2012 at 9:14 a.m.

I think it should depend on the mechanics of the game whether or not it should be 4 or 6 buttons layout. We should wait until we see some footage to decide what works in this iteration.

I'm just interested in seeing how Namco is going to incorporate Capcom's signature character specials into the game.

Guys, he's direct with his answers because these are simple questions. You have to realize what people are asking him to begin with. And even then, they usually boil down to "I'll consider it" "I'll test it" or "I'll think about it". He definitely has a more proper and formal approach then that goofball Ono but I wouldn't get too excited about squeezing info out of him once TxSF actually starts rolling.

When the game actually starts going through full-time development, Harada will have to start ducking questions like "IS BRYAN GONNA BE IN THE GAME? TELL ME PLZ" just like Ono, Seth, Niitsuma, and Daishi & Tago (Soul Calibur's head dev and producer, respectively) currently do. Because some questions they can't answer.

They should come up with a system that rewarded skill, not mashing. Some 1 frame link combos in SFIV do less damage than the basic jump in > shoryuken.
Specials should do more damage when used after 1 or 2 links.
Simple srk 50% damage / 1 link, srk 80% damage / 2 links, srk 100% damage (or something like that).

#30
FatMus2 said on January 23, 2012 at 9:53 a.m.

I hope they get real creative and give the Street Fighter characters a lot of moves akin to tekken characters (which are kinda like target combos i suppose) I dunno about fireballs, it seems a risky business but I'll wait and see what they come up with.

#31
Paine said on January 23, 2012 at 10 a.m.

@dc4lsvtec

Tekken is stronger worldwide than Street Fighter. I don't play Tekken, but this is common knowledge.

#32
Virtua_Kazama said on January 23, 2012 at 10:05 a.m.

Nah, I prefer the 4-Button system for that. But it wouldn't hurt to try the 6-Button system.

#33
HASJ said on January 23, 2012 at 10:24 a.m.

Tekken has 6 buttons in Street Fighter, why wouldn't Street Fighter have 4 buttons on Tekken?
Unless Harada is thinking of multiple limb control or something...
Anyways, I wished SFxT gone back to the EVO/E3 build.

#34
Hakansoilbarrel said on January 23, 2012 at 10:28 a.m.

(I'd like to see more Tekken interpretations of SF chars, that unique, more realistic look.

I'd also not like to see Tekken 6's Bob V Bob...ugh. I don't play but that was painful to watch.

PS: Tekken is like soccer and SF is like (American) Football - Tekken does better worldwide/overall, football does well in the states)

#35
Kalyx_triaD said on January 23, 2012 at 10:33 a.m.

- I wish MvC3 went back to the E3 build (TvC was/is better).
- Crossover titles do not need to have tag modes (CvS/SvC).
- TxSF does not need 6 buttons for the SF cast, it would be cute, though.
- Harada and Ono are both cool. But don't think Harada will just reveal rosters on demand. Use your head.

#36
SAMURAI said on January 23, 2012 at 10:38 a.m.

1 vs 1 Yes!!!

SFxT would be much better with that option.

#37
cadnexus said on January 23, 2012 at 11:36 a.m.

Tag Team is much better for a crossover game. 1v1 sounds kind of bland and too ordinary. But there should be an option for both not just one.
So far what I'm hearing. SFxT sounds like it's going to be more fun than TxSF, because it has more going for it and something new-that involves more players. TxSF sounds like it's going to look better graphically and play exactly like Tekken with stiff controls and some sluggish movement. The game would suit HARDCORE Tekken fans more than HARDCORE SF fans.
It would probably have a Tekken force feature that SFXT doesn't have, offering something different.

#38
cadnexus said on January 23, 2012 at 11:39 a.m.

@#36
Street Fighter has always been six buttons.

#39
Azuregum said on January 23, 2012 at 11:43 a.m.

I hope this will be a 1v1 fighter. There are more than enough tag/team-based fighters on the market as it is. 1v1 fighters allow you to pick a character and master it.

#40
gtfopanda said on January 23, 2012 at 12:16 p.m.

@ #14

How about you learn something about Tekken characters, instead of spitting nonsense?

Characters' storyline is actually way more developed in Tekken than in Street Fighter, SF4 is bad it stink, story wise.

Sure that doesn't matter in competitive play, but when you're talking about story and characterization, Tekken is way ahead.

Niyari said on January 23, 2012 at 12:27 p.m.

Would rather it have 1v1. It needs to be different from SFxT in more ways than one instead of only having a different fighting engine.

#43
Kenshiro said on January 23, 2012 at 12:32 p.m.

@ 43 yes somebody gets it.

If anyone is looking for variety...nobody is stopping you from buying 1 version then renting the other.

Or ultimately buying both versions.

#44
Kenshiro said on January 23, 2012 at 12:35 p.m.

Lol @ 38.

Have you played I mean actually picked up a Tekken title past the 3rd one?

Each version has the cast moving more fluidly and speedy.

Let's actually comment on what we know shall we?

#45
CubaNectie said on January 23, 2012 at 12:38 p.m.

1 vs 1 with 4 attack buttons please. More Tekkenish, that's what I'd like to see with this game (since we are getting a Street Fighterish game with SFxT).

#46
SeQuarnD said on January 23, 2012 at 12:38 p.m.

@ I_hate_u

you can't really compare Tekken and Street Fighter because they are to two different types of games. One is in 3D and the other is in 2D. if any one wants to say "well they both are fighting games" i would say "if that's so then WWE OUT SOLD Tekken and Street Fighter.

Ono:They always exist somewhere and and any time teeheee ;p

Harada: OOOk..... so will you be adding any of sf alpha characters to the cast, such as karin or R. mika

Ono: they no answer call when i, might soon be in time heehee ;p

Harada:What?!! anyway good luck with that.

Ono: tee hee ;p

Harada:whatever *phuckin retard*

Exactly, that's how Tekken 6 and even Tournament plays, the movements are so sluggish and stiff.
Compare it with Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive, Virtua Fighter, and King of Fighters Maximum Impact.

#51
Kenshiro said on January 23, 2012 at 1:34 p.m.

You just lost any type of credibility in mentioning Dead or Alive's stock combos and the guessing which is the game's counters.

#52
RA_MO said on January 23, 2012 at 1:37 p.m.

Well people are jumping the gun too soon... He said he is considering 1v1. That does not rule out that he may go with 2v2. Besides the very first Tekken Tag had both 2v2 and 1v1 so I know it is not impossible for Harada to do. As for button layout that will be a bit of a challenge since Tekken up to this point (SFxT and that crappy genesis port of Virtua Fighter vs Tekken) has not used any other layout other than four. As for why they have not asked about characters is because it is only on paper right now. When SFxT was announced.. I may be wrong but I think Ono showed everyone the prototype and it had four characters off the bat. Harada's version so far only has a proto Ryu that is not even playable. They also have the Jin and Ryu promo poster but nothing more. And he also said that he will not start production until the results of sales for SFxT. So it anyone actually wants to see how Namco will make this game, you know what you have to do.. Like it or hate it.. Buy SFxT and its gems.

Kind of annoyed by everyone claiming Harada is the only one doing fan service and slamming Ono. Capcom did a great job converting the Tekken characters into the 2D realm and added a crap load of risky new features to the game to boot. They also really know how to market the game, make it seem appealing to newcomers and they even got a reality show coming up soon for the game. In the meantime we got characters like Hugo, Poison and Rolento who where MUCH requested and if rumors of Elena making the cut is true then between this game and SSFIV AE we got most of the requested characters (and R.Mika isnt in it even though Ono wanted her).
In the meantime Harada is pretty much being quite sober over this. It will be difficult to implement SF gameplay into the TEKKEN world, yes, but if the EX games worked enough then i am sure this can as well. And i am also betting that TXSF will use many character models from Tekken 6 and maybe TAG 2 if we are lucky. So again, i dont get why ppl are disrespecting Capcom and Ono after they gave us the glorious SF IV series, SF 3rd Strike O.E., UMVC3, SSF2T HDR and and now SF X T which, according to some of the worlds best fighting game players, it is supposed to be the best SF game ever

#58
KpCloudM said on January 23, 2012 at 3:26 p.m.

#59
SAMURAI said on January 23, 2012 at 3:28 p.m.

@ 58

What worlds best fighting game players say that SFxT is the best SF game ever? Best game for newcomers perhaps with those easy inputs, gems and other crap. It's not even a serious game. It's a party game and it probably ain't gonna live for a long time long. How can that game be the best SF game ever.

I hope TxSF is gonna be serious. I might buy that one, although it's 3D.

#60
anon1010 said on January 23, 2012 at 3:44 p.m.

4 button layout. 6 button layout optional. Straight up Tekken style. 1v1 and Tag Team modes available. Plain and simple. Same way Tekken's always been. Doesn't need to change now.

Regardless, Tekken is the best selling fighting game franchise of all time which means its the best selling 3d fighter. SF is the second best selling fighter game franchise of all time,which means its the best selling 2D fighter.

Street Fighter is more popular than Tekken in North America but in the rest of the world, Tekken has the upper hand in both console and arcade sales

Street Fighter X Tekken is basically SF4 meets Tekken Tag. That's why it's 2-on-2. I'll be happy if Tekken x Street Fighter will be 1-on-1 instead of teams. I don't care how many buttons there are. I started as a Street Fighter fan and after trying Tekken, I'm more of a Tekken fan now since their moves are more "realistic" and they have alternate costumes for each character instead of color swaps. I'm looking forward to Tekken x Street Fighter. Too bad it won't be for the PS3. Maybe PS4? :)

GodPride said on January 23, 2012 at 7:50 p.m.

You folks make it sound as if it isn't possible to have both 1v1 and 2v2 modes simultaneously.

Anyway, I hope this game is more or less TTT2 with SF characters in the same way I wanted SFxTK to be but in reverse.

#67
AlphaFox said on January 23, 2012 at 10:11 p.m.

I've never played a tekken game but SFxT and TxSF are enticing me to want to pick up some tekken games. Regardless, having
1v1 and 2v2 modes is just awesome in its own right :D

I'm sure Harada will have some awesome gameplay mechanics for TxSF

#70
Chronoless said on January 24, 2012 at 6:38 p.m.

@18 yep, you might be correct but we all know the ones who buy SFxT will be wasteing their money because Super SFxT will arrive 8 months later at a retail price of $39.99. with 4-10 new characters and new stages. because when it comes to fighting games Capcom is known for giving fans incomplete versions.
