Info on Street Fighter X Tekken's 12 new characters coming in April, Karin's copyright issues and much more EventHubs readers, RedWaltz79 and Zelgadiszero, were kind enough to provide a transcript for the community from a recent Yoshinori Ono interview that took place at the Street Fighter X Tekken launch event.

Ono talks a lot about the upcoming release of the game, noting that we will get more information about the 12 new characters in April at Captivate, while also discussing why Law was included over Fei Long and even covering the reasons Karin wasn't included in the title.

You can check out an embed of the interview or just a read through the details for yourself by clicking the link below.

Transcript of notable details from the interview


• More info on the 12 new characters in Street Fighter X Tekken will be revealed at Captivate in April.

• There will be only one disc release of the game and updates will be via DLC. He said that, just like SSF4 and SSF4 AE, there will be an option for those with the updated DLC version of the game to choose the older version so they can play with those people (If you have AE, you can choose to play just SSF4). So, you still need the most updated version of the game to play with all the new features.

• They chose Law over Fei Long because he was closer to Bruce Lee as a rip off character.

• One of the main reasons they have trouble getting Karin in the game is because her copyright belongs to a Manga artist. It doesn't mean they can't put her in, it just becomes really difficult contractually. He hints that if Harada does something *wink* *wink*, she might be in TxSF. Ono assures that he is not trolling with these statements, but they are true.

• They had trouble implementing charge move characters into this game because of how aggressive it is, though they think they have been successful with the ones they have currently put in. Some commands were changed from charge to motion attacks, like Chun-Li's fireball. Also, you can charge while doing things like the Cross Rush.

• As far as charge characters go, with Blanka, they have had trouble adapting him to this game and are still working on him.

• They are going to be paying close attention to tournaments and the like so they can decide if the game needs an SSF4 AE type of balance update.

• He says the PC version will be similar to the console, but he can't say anymore about it right now. This version will be released in May.

• He bluntly says that you will NOT see Q in this game. "It's a dead horse."

• He noted that a lot of people want R Mika, Eagle, and Alex....but not really saying anything about them other than laughing.

People are asking for Karin for over 2 years now.
Couldn't Capcom mention this copyright thing before instead of Ono trolling like he called Karin but she won't answer her phone and bullsh*t like that.

Blanka has bad breath in the news teaser photo, and Karin's not sure if she wants to kiss him or not.
I'd like to see some of the Arika characters from Capcom. Hopefully in a future game or maybe as DLC aside from the other 12.

SAMURAI said on March 2, 2012 at 10:02 a.m.

Fei Long > Law anyway

@1 It's really not uncommon that people are unable to directly comment on anything dealing with contracts and licensing until either a deal is in place or any hopes for a deal are gone. Even if they don't currently have a deal, they most certainly don't want to close the door on future possibilities, or make it seem like they're trying to close those possibilities.

chilldoman said on March 2, 2012 at 10:04 a.m.

so does that mean that we're getting all 12 dlc characters at once? i was hoping the 4 every couple months rumor was true.

#9
SAMURAI said on March 2, 2012 at 10:06 a.m.

@ 8

I understand, but Capcom could've mentioned that there were problems with the copyright for Karin. That way people would understand and ask for other things/characters.

#10
Kenshiro said on March 2, 2012 at 10:07 a.m.

Still won't stop fans crying about Karin because ”she could be added later”.

• He noted that a lot of people want R Mika, Eagle, and Alex....but not really saying anything about them other than laughing.

Ouch

flungdungfar said on March 2, 2012 at 10:07 a.m.

Now people can stop crying about multiple disc releases even though its been mentioned since EVO 2k11 that this is a 1 disc release, i guess they have to keep repeating it for the kids with ADD out there.

#12
NvhA said on March 2, 2012 at 10:09 a.m.

Considering how fast people would drop her like people dropped Phoenix Wright in UMVC3, Karin might not worth the hassle to go through all the copyrights issue.

hehehehee~ :P

#13
HooliganComboFTW said on March 2, 2012 at 10:12 a.m.

#10

yeah but any person who wants karin in this game could have done minimum research to see she was manga character originally but it was capcom sponsored but they still need permission/possible incentives to creator which at the moment they are prob avoiding. Interesting to note that Q has zero chance to be in this game lol. Alex and R.Mikia and possibly eagle may have a future chance for an update and karin is on life-support

#14
SomeDude said on March 2, 2012 at 10:12 a.m.

So i guess te winking means we're probably gonna see Karin TxSF,which is great i guess,her playstyle fits Tekken's.

I thought they said something about Alex not being in because of the lack of hitstun? or i remember hearing/reading that..not sure

#15

WTF.......WTF

they both look like Bruce lee rip offs, and SF FEI LONG LOOKS WAY MORE LIKE BRUCE LEE THAN SF X TK LAW

WTF............ I can have fat fight but not bruce lee fight
WTF

#19
HooliganComboFTW said on March 2, 2012 at 10:15 a.m.

the laughter can be interpreted as trolling knowing they won't get in or he has plans for them in future and is giddy with excitement laughter.

That never stopped people from asking for Skullomania.

I still hope that there will be a disc option for those who need it.

#25
HooliganComboFTW said on March 2, 2012 at 10:20 a.m.

im guessing ono think Q is way too slow for this format based on his comments on charge characters in game. doesn't mean i agree with it but thats a possible explanation

#26
Kenshiro said on March 2, 2012 at 10:20 a.m.

@15

I thought one of Jin's specials caused a hit stun?

even so that wouldb't be hard to implement. Ono doesn't care for Alex or at the very least he's not ready to let 3 grapplers from Capcom co exist in his game.

#27
NelNinja said on March 2, 2012 at 10:21 a.m.

@7

Are you saying you like Fei Long over Lee? Or that you like Lee better than Fei Long? Because from your statement it seems like you like Lee better anyway, in which you would have used:

Lee > Fei Long

Because the open-end goes to the one that is bigger, or more liked. I'm not trying to be nit-picky, but I keep seeing people use > and < incorrectly and it's really confusing...

#28
Kenshiro said on March 2, 2012 at 10:25 a.m.

@26 the only reason for a disc release is if you're playing it on the go or if you don't ever plan on going online even for a simple purpose.

Capcom might actually mean what they say this time.

The fact that Alex is being mentioned gives me hope. Please put in one of the best designed characters in Street Fighter.

#33
halo said on March 2, 2012 at 10:33 a.m.

This whole thing with Disk-DLC is getting tedious. Didnt they say again,officially for the 100th time, that there will be no more disk-only releases after the vanilla? No more disk-only doesn't mean that there won't be more disk versions, it just means they will follow the exact same route as with SSF IV A.E. Now the video above isn't paying for me atm, but does anyone actually say there will not be another disk version of the game? Or did they say again there will not be another disk-only version? Cause there is a big difference between the 2

#34
J_Tier said on March 2, 2012 at 10:33 a.m.

@33 It's not that Harada has more of a chance, but it more likely means he's willing to go the extra mile for those copyrights. I'm sure she's a reserve character for that game regardless. Can't let this game overshadow Namco's game after all.

#35
Getdownbrown83 said on March 2, 2012 at 10:35 a.m.

Skullomania would be awesome... doubt it though

Law>Fei all day

i think alex will make it along with some others dpending on how dlc goes for capcom in the sales department

Karin... so much demand it may just go down and she had verygood tools btw in alpha 3

#36
Jordouche said on March 2, 2012 at 10:36 a.m.

What annoys me about this is that 3rd Strike has the most juggling out of ALL Street Fighter games.

So now, with SFxT, Capcom are trying to sort out characters like Blanka who, apparently, they're having trouble with? I can imagine a similar issue with E.Honda, so why try to put these characters in the game? If people love those characters so much because they're from the golden days of Street Fighter 2, why do they still play as Ryu?

#37
theMASman said on March 2, 2012 at 10:43 a.m.

Glad he touched on the DLC issues but given their pattern lately I'm still going to wait it out a bit before buying it....as much as I want the game now -__-. Watching good matches on youtube may suffice until I get the near to complete package. It will suck but they've taken enough of my money with their crazy DLC pattern.

A SEASON PASS would wash away any fear of people buying this title at launch or any other Capcom fighter.

But if they did implement a season pass I'm sure Capcom will adhere to the word "Season" and the pass will just be good enough for DLCs costumes over the span of 3 months lol. Then we will see new characters/addons with yet another huge DLC update for around $30-40. Lets hope for the folks who have bills to pay and dont rely on their parents to buy their games for em' that I'm wrong.

AceKombat said on March 2, 2012 at 10:43 a.m.

I hope to god El Fuerte/Seth/Viper aren't 1 of the remaining 6 characters for SF side . Anyone not auto-pilot'ish are perfectly fine ^_^ .

#40
maxs2d2ace said on March 2, 2012 at 10:44 a.m.

they should of put both fei and law in this game. to mii this shows that you dont have enough talent to full explore both characters to make them both really unique. by the way, fei long is more of bruce lee rip off because HELLO FEI ACTUALLY IS A MOVIE STAR/MARTIAL ARTIST!!? pluse after they gave him the one inch pounch and the bruce lee alts they might as well have changed his name to bruce long >_> but im just B2itching.

#41

True dat. I've never seen a picture of Bruce Lee with a beard like Law's.

#45
DunnDeal said on March 2, 2012 at 10:47 a.m.

@41
The only auto pilot character is El Fuerte but he can be beaten. As for my main Viper, the only unpunishable move she has is her MP. Thunder Knuckle. Viper would be too dangerous for SfxT anyway. Seth is still easy to beat.

mcknight8279109 said on March 2, 2012 at 10:50 a.m.

Ummmm KARIN NEEDS TO BE IN THE GAME AND SHE HAD BETTER NOT BE F TIER EITHER. They just don't wanna pay the guy to use his character. They are beating around the bush. Like seriously with all the money they have, it won't be that hard to put her in the game. But oh yeah, blanka can be put in the game. And there is tech rolling lol all kinds of problems are gonna arise for blanka because of that. I doubt that he'd even be tournament viable

#50
Oroku_Saki said on March 2, 2012 at 10:54 a.m.

Law's fighting moves are more like Bruce Lee's than Fei Long. It depends on how you look at it, but Law's Jeet Kune Do is more honest feeling than that of Fei Long.
Capcom maybe just wanted to have Law in now, and later release Fei Long as DLC for the people who whine enough.

#51
kac1010 said on March 2, 2012 at 10:56 a.m.

Gonna be pretty salty if these characters aren't free or priced VERY lowly. Kind of ridiculous that 12 characters are ready to ship barely two months after the original game ships.

#52
icejohn said on March 2, 2012 at 10:57 a.m.

didn't svensson say all would be clear at launch? watch it be news about news.

#53
fireinthehole said on March 2, 2012 at 10:58 a.m.

To be honest.

I would like to give a big THANKYOU to Capcom for NOT having Karin in the game. That way, all the Karin crybabies can just cry till the world ends.

#54
J_Tier said on March 2, 2012 at 10:58 a.m.

@People saying Law is not closer to Bruce Lee because of the 'stache....

-.-

It's the moveset people. The. Move. Set. And originally Law didn't have a 'stache, they chose Law w/ 'stache to differentiate him ffrom another character in the case that they actually decide to put the other character into this game--which I doubt though.

We have enough people complaining about more SF4 characters, having people complain about wanting more SF4 characters just shows how annoying gaming communities can be.

#55
HyperFlow said on March 2, 2012 at 11:01 a.m.

I bet Fei Long will be DLC. He looks more like Bruce Lee to me. They can put two similar characters like bob and rufus in together. Doesnt make sense to leave out fei.

Btw the official line was that this is going to be the only disc only release. So expect it to be done same way as AE with both options.

#56
J_Tier said on March 2, 2012 at 11:03 a.m.

@57 Bob and Rufus are only similar because they are both fat. They are about as similar as Ryu and Kazuya for both being male...

#24 Skullomania belongs to Arika not Capcom, SF:EXplusAlpha was a project between Arika & Capcom to test out a 3D Fighter which involved both company's characters. Garuda, Kairi, Pulma, Skullomania, Hokuto, C. Jack, D. dark, Shadow Geist, Blair, Sharon etc all belong to Arika.

#62
BLAFY said on March 2, 2012 at 11:09 a.m.

Comments = Complain
Also how come no one wants Bruce from Tekken
No Bruce vs Sagat matches

Fei Long/Law was one of those dream matches everyone wanted

Maybe he will be in TK vs SF, I have a feeling that game will come out next year

I wonder how much the characters will cost, aint nothing free (except changing colors)

#63
J_Tier said on March 2, 2012 at 11:09 a.m.

@61 thisguyrightHERE is pretty ...tempted to say something mean, but I'll withhold the comment.

This time they clearly said there will be no super version, the only time you got scammed was when you got on the bandwagon of people with misguided information. I would blame your own naivety and ignorance.

#64
bullitt23 said on March 2, 2012 at 11:11 a.m.

As a big Q fan, im not mad his not in sfxt and he is considered a "dead horse". He is too slow for this game and has charge moves, plus who would be his partner? As long as he has a possibility of being in a different game. People will often refer to his 3s self, when time has shown, characters get modded to be better and work within different game systems, so many little things to make him alot more viable. Karin i knew about anyway so no biggy.

R. Mika, Alex and Eagle would be cool in this game though

#65
Dr_Panic_PhD said on March 2, 2012 at 11:11 a.m.

If Capcom aquired the rights so that Evil Ryu could be in AE then they should have had no problem getting them for Karin since both characters were concepts of the same manga artist. Yes, Evil Ryu was not designed by Capcom but by Karin's creator. Maybe they had more of an edge getting them for Evil Ryu because he's just a variation of a character they already own, but still, I wish they would have tried harder on getting the original character (karin) for SFxT then they did with putting Evil Ryu in AE.

@Jtir123 Law vs Fei was one of the premier matchups people were hoping to see when this title was first announced. We wanted to know which clone would be victorious. Instead, we get fatass vs fatass.

#69
J_Tier said on March 2, 2012 at 11:20 a.m.

@70 I'll just wait it out and see, enough people already rage about clone characters and "reused" models. If they do add Fei Long, I'd support that, but I'd also expect the above complaints.

As for Rufus vs. Bob, it's quite a legitimate match-up as their moveset and aesthetics are completely distinguishable.

Fei is visually Bruce Lee, but fight style wise, Law gets it. I still think Fei should have been in this. I feel it's kinda dumb he wasn't added. Hope he's at least dlc. (- -__ - -)

#72
Odilon616 said on March 2, 2012 at 11:34 a.m.

@19 Have you ever seen Law transition from Tekken 5 to 6?
He went from half-Lee to full blown Bruce Lee. Fully customizable with nunchucks, Enter the Dragon/Jeet Kune Do Spandex attire. Not that I disagree Fei Long doesn't resemble Bruce Lee in some elements nor would I argue Law VS Fei rival fight would be hilarious, I personally believe Law was a stronger candidate for this scenario.

#73
Getdownbrown83 said on March 2, 2012 at 11:36 a.m.

i am pretty pleased with the roster taking in account the vita characters will come to consoles and there could still possibly be more characters to come in the future depending on how they sell i think many people wanted certain matchups that didnt happen ie fei-law sakura karin-asuka lilli honda-ganryu ect. but all in all i think its a pretty good selections i cant really explain the alex deal and someone pointed out 3S fits perfect to this engine because of the juggle system butnot bad and the gameplay in the right hands has been impresive

#74
gammabolt17 said on March 2, 2012 at 11:37 a.m.

You know, what's weird is that it seems that most Tekken characters are from the Tekken 3 era. Why, I ask, is Forrest Law not in the game anyway? Isn't that like the only Tekken he's in?

#75
Djanjo said on March 2, 2012 at 11:38 a.m.

People have been asking for R.Mika, Alex, Karin, and Eagle? Um Alex had a reintroduction to games it's called Tatsunoko vs Capcom...R.Mika I kinda get could she be funny, but what we just give an excuse to have Karin cause they game is filled to the brim with school girls? (Because if Karin then we get Sakura)

How about unique request? Sean and Elena tie in with Dhalsim and Sagat's story?

yea i know bro i was looking forward to it too. i mean there are so many clone match ups from both of these games and what do we get? really there is not ONE Simlar match up except the battle of the fatties(and who wanted to see that >__>). but what do you expect from capcom? they suck at story and rival matches(well except the dudley an barog rival fight. that was kinda kewl that dudley was stuck in a N!gga moment lol).

twistedhadoken said on March 2, 2012 at 12:51 p.m.

Ono - "Well I know Strider was eventually put into MVC3 even though he had contract issues, but frankly I'm a lazy git and can't be bothered to include Karin. Let Harada do it!"

Is basically what he's saying, and it don't work. A lot of people want her in, so put her in. Wasn't it Lupinko who even said there was no problem and they COULD put her in? heck those notes up there even say they could get her in the game.

I'm also interested to learn why he's so blunt with Q like that, sounds like he just has a hatred for him personally. I always found him kinda fun and unique.

ultrapowerlevel said on March 2, 2012 at 12:57 p.m.

Karin copyright? Bull****.

Karin is in SFA3.
Then she was also in Namco X Capcom.
Then SFA3 Max had her again in PSP.

And the guy who created Karin was also the guy who created Ryu. No Ryu copyright issues.....

No further comments. She's not gonna be in SFxT and he's looking for excuses.

Even if Masahiro Nakahira came up with the Satsui no Hado/Evil Ryu concept, he still never owned the copyright to it as he was working with Capcom's intellectual property. Whereas with Karin, he made it up all on his own, so it's his prerogative to decide whether he wants to let Capcom use her or not.

Here's an extreme example, but let's say Capcom and Ono decided to modify Eddy Gordo into an Evil Eddy Gordo concept with a different color scheme and a couple of Elena's moves and threw him in SFxT - EEG still wouldn't be Capcom's IP that they'd be free to use in any future games or products. They'd still have to go through Namco. Same reason we haven't seen the EX characters even though people keep clamoring for (some of) them.

That being said, I do wish Karin was in this game (she was my A3 main), but if Ono isn't trolling and Harada is working on getting her in TxSF, I'm all for that too. Her multi-hitting, tree-branching special moves are an easier fit into the Tekken system too. But Capcom has no legal leverage to get her in SFxT (outside of a past working relationship and potential goodwill) any more than Namco does for TxSF. The medium of leverage in getting her in future games is simple: $$$.

"They chose Law over Fei Long because he was closer to Bruce Lee as a rip off character."

Basically they don't want to have to pay to use Karin. A lot of people may want Karin including myself but I doubt adding her would result in enough of an increase in sales to warrent spending money to license her.

Though, I wonder how much that would cost? I can't imagine Karin is in demand by anyone else other than for the SF universe that she was created for. It would be nice if Capcom could just buy the rights to her outright so they can use her whenever they want. What else is the artist going to use her for anyway other than SF manga? Eventually people will just forget about her and the artist won't get anything.

Fei vs Law would have been one of those dream matches much like Dudley vs Balrog, Zangief vs Hugo etc. My guess for fei not included might be the fact that there are many rekka style characters in the game now Poison,Rolento and I think I recall som tekken characters having some as well . Not saying it's bad as we got so many fireball characters too.

Karin I wanted in the new SF games when Super street fighter 4 had added Gen, Rose, Fei, and the others.

I'm a big Gen fan but I know he wont be in at all because he is so unpoplar. He is the only SF character with a stance change system and there are many Tekken characters that have Stances including the upcoming Lei.

"He says the PC version will be similar to the console, but he can't say anymore about it right now. This version will be released in May."

Ya, I understand, same features but PC will get substandard support like AE is getting right now. Ya, right!

You be stupid people. Law is in over Fei Long because Law is more important to Tekken than Fei Long is SF. Law was in the first Tekken and "Law" has been in every Tekken game. Can you say the same for Fei Long?

Capcom know this but they just didn't want to say it. Fei Long is probably a more accurate Bruce Lee but that's one of the reason Law is much better. Law has a degree of originality, has many original/bizare moves and in some games is own look while Fei Long with remain to be just a Bruce Lee copy and Paste.

People should stop asking for characters for the sake of rivalry. It's too late now, Capcom will just do what they did with Yun, Yang, E.Ryu, and Oni in SSF4:AE and not bother with it. You folks should, instead, opt for characters you are going to use and save the rest for SF5.

Excuses for no add Karin!!! this is troll a great troll! Karin was add in SFA3,Capcom fighting Jam and Namco x Capcom!! E.Ryu was added in SSF4AE when the artist of E.Ryu was the same artist of Karin.. So mr Ono you has 2 possibilities: 1- say the truth and say that you don't like Karin of you save this option for SF Alpha 4.
2(OPTION)pay the artist like when paid for E.Ryu for SSF4AE.
