GAMEPLAY OVERVIEW

The long awaited clash between the two leaders in the fighting genre can now be played at home… AND on the go! Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation Vita expands on the action-packed console experience, delivering competitive co-op fun that players of all skill levels can enjoy. With the full roster of 55 playable characters and new exclusive features, Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation Vita is packed with tons of content and boasts one of the most robust character line-ups in fighting game history.

For those who purchase the PlayStation Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken this fall, the first run of all retail copies will come with two free download codes: one code will be for the additional 12 characters and the second will give Vita players free alternate costumes for the core roster of 38 characters.

Playing at home or on the streets, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 Cross-Play lets Street Fighter X Tekken players compete anytime, anywhere, against anyone… either locally, with 3G or via Wi-Fi. Cross-Play functionality with the PlayStation 3 version gives players console quality online battles that push the true capabilities of the PlayStation Vita. A host of additional new features and surprises designed specifically for the PlayStation Vita system are being implemented and will be revealed prior to the game’s release in fall 2012.

FEATURES

• 55 Playable Characters – In addition to the core roster of 38 characters from the console version and the 5 exclusive characters from the PS3 version, the PS Vita version will arrive with a free download code for the 12 new playable characters: Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy and Sakura from the Street Fighter side, and Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson and Lei Wulong from the Tekken side.

• Cross-Platform Play – Portable gaming has reached a new level. Cross-Platform Play allows PS Vita players of Street Fighter X Tekken to compete against PS3 players.

• Vita Exclusive Features – Players can take advantage of all new Vita-specific features that utilize the front and rear touch panels, augmented reality, Near functionality and the digital compass.

• Free Alternate Costumes – In addition to receiving the free code for the 12 new characters, Vita players will receive a second free code that can be used to unlock the alternate costumes for the core roster of 38 characters. Additionally, anyone who pre-orders the upcoming PS Vita version at select retailers will be rewarded with free alternate costumes for the 12 new characters.

• PS Vita and PS3 Data Sharing – All DLC purchased on the PS3 version can be used on the PS Vita version, and vice versa. Additionally, edited and customized data on the PS Vita version can be transferred to the PS3 version via a save data link.

• Multiplayer Mayhem – Pick your battles and compete against others locally, online through Wi-Fi networks, or through the PS Vita’s 3G connection.

• But Wait, There’s More! – New modes, features, and game content will be revealed right up until the release in fall 2012… so, stay tuned!

Christie make the cover?

AWSUM.

I wish Elena were there instead of Blanka, though.

My characters were kidnapped by Cashcom and trapped within the disk.
Cashcom will free them only if I give more money...
It is a clear case of kidnapping.

The well of discontent is bottomless.

Doubt I'll be getting the vita version but July 31st is going to be an interesting day.

Bryan looks suspiciously happy. Not sadistic happy, but sunshine and lemonade happy.

Is that Evil Ryu in the Japanese Box Art?

Maybe the rumor about Evil Ryu & Devil Kazuya is true.

Maybe, but all of the character art on the official website has everyone with that red-eyed shadow behind them. I think it's their inner evil that's released when they have the Pandora power or something, not completely clear on the story.

Maybe, he doesn't look Pandora'd out in that picture so it's a possibility.

Hmm now that I look again, I see a red aura around that Ryu.

SFxT for Vita: One of the rare occasions where the North American boxart is better than the Japanese one

Awesome stuff. But I'm not sure I'll pick up the Vita version day 1. I'd rather have the downloadable content for PS3.

Although I must say that the game looks a little different. Perhaps this version uses a different kind of finish to it?

Anyway, when playing 6-button fighters on handhelds, I always feel like I'm missing a few buttons on the system itself...

So, buying this on the PSN doesn't get you the DLC characters?
Or does it not give you the code and automatically activates it for you?

have they downgraded the graphics for this port a bit?
something looks different to me

I`ll wait until they introduce Devil Kazuya, Eddy Gordo, Evil Ryu then decide whether to buy this game or not.
