Posted by SFilp • October 11, 2012 at 4:38 p.m. PDT
During the panel at New York Comic-Con today, Capcom officially announced the Street Fighter X Tekken 2013.

Ono jumped on Twitter to confirm that it would be a free update.

Street Fighter X Tekken 2013! We had announce at NYCC!! of course its free!!

SGCafe has posted a translation from 4Gamer stating the patch will be out mid December. After the jump you can check out some of the changes that have been announced.

The update, called “Street Fighter X Tekken 2013” (following Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Ver.2012′s naming convention), will come to all versions of the game (PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PC, and Xbox 360) in the middle of December, 2012.

• Throw start-up has been changed from 7 frames to 5 frames (note: in Street Fighter IV throws are 3-frames on start-up)

• Life recovery speeds have been adjusted, so that there are less time-outs.

• Tekken characters’ anti-air moves have been improved. Specifically, upon hitting your opponent in the air with certain moves, you will now be able to do juggle combos similar to in, well, the Tekken games (“飛ばして落とす”プレイ in Japanese, in case we somehow mis-interpreted this).

• The camera or special animation activated during a Boost Combo (light, medium, heavy, heavy combos) has been adjusted so that the battle moves along more swiftly.

• Recoverable health’s color in the health bar has been changed, so that it’s easier to see. Comparison shots before and after.

• The glowing effect that accompanies a gem’s activation has been changed (less glowing now). Before and after shots.

• At the start of the round, the “FIGHT” graphic will dissipate more quickly.

Outside of system changes, the game’s characters will also receive balance tweaks:

Ken
• Extended the forward distance of Shippu Jinraikyaku with damage increased!

Kazuya
• Becomes completely invulnerable when Demon God Fist EX is activated (until the attack ends)

Cammy
• Hooligan Combination can take off to Cannon Strike EX

Julia
• Increased the damage of Lashing Arrow EX with wall bounce damage

Julia
• Extended in-air time on short distance heavy punch and can chain to Super Arts

Bob
• Giga Jacker EX sends opponent to a hard knockdown state

Abel
• Wall bounce on Counter Hit of Shoulder Tackle

Xiaoyu
• Invulnerable frame has been added on Hakkesho EX

Balrog
• Dash Swing Blow EX on crouched foes makes them fall on their backside

Heihachi
• Increased damage on Chrome Dome! Also, MAX Chrome Dome can't be defended

Ibuki
• While falling after Kunai EX, Canceling can be activated on Kunai EX

Paul
• Invulnerable time on Shredder EX has been extended

Bob & Paul
• Their walk speed has become faster

Specific character changes from Capcom-Unity. Tip sent in by jme.

I'm looking forward to this. This game has a lot of potential but I hope they haven't made too many changes for SFxT. Funny how some people are surprised that this is free. Remember AE 2012?

#17
Klewer said on October 11, 2012 at 3:11 p.m.

wow a 2013 free title update for sfxt how dare you capcom i hate you. it's not like ayano already said they were re-balancing sfxt or anything

Why is it free? Surely the only people still playing will be stupid enough to pay for it?

How is Capcom trying to fix SFxT in response to fan outcry a BAD decision? Some of you try too hard.

#22
SimSimIV said on October 11, 2012 at 3:11 p.m.

What's with this stupid attitude. Complain about game. Update is announced. Complain more.

Changes I have heard about so far:
5f throws
Tekken chars gets better anti airs
Gray health nerf
No more zoom in on launcher, so it should be faster
Julia ex lunge punch wall bounce
heihachi dome buff, max version unblockable

Funny how they're still trying to save this dying game when they could be supporting games that are still watched and played in the scene(sf4 and marvel)

#24
cadnexus said on October 11, 2012 at 3:12 p.m.

Just like I thought, their going to give the patient people free DLC characters when they suckered the impatient people to buy them for 20 dollars extra that was already on the disc. The game also needs more levels.

#25

So.....when's the last time Capcom released a major update for Marvel VS Capcom 3, you know, a game that people actually care about?

CVS 1 - Garbage

Maybe the same can happen with SFXT?

love this, i remember the HATE of mvc3 and when umvc3 came out everything was in the past, everyone loves it now... im sensing the same for sfxt. same happend to sf4...

#29
SubhumanX said on October 11, 2012 at 3:13 p.m.

Maybe if they did everything RIGHT the first time with SFXT then there wouldn't have to be a 2013. SFXT is just so BORING. It was okay the first few days I played it but SERIOUSLY Capcom? Just give up on this game. Inerested in the "up coming details" though. maybe just MAYBE they'll turn the game around. But who am I kidding? A Darkstalkers 4 would have been better than this.

#30
Roge9 said on October 11, 2012 at 3:14 p.m.

This is NEEDED in order to put interest back in the game. As it is now, the current version of the game has a very poor reputation.

edit- Also WOW.. People are actually bitching about a FREE UPDATE? Everything Capcom does is bad according to you people.

#31
mrdrofficer said on October 11, 2012 at 3:15 p.m.

I hope it removes all those damn throw/launcher animations and speed up the whole game by 20-ish percent.

And then yeah, balancing, clear overhead animations, normal special inputs, etc.

What a tedious, played out, joke you have made. Also, it doesn't make any sense in the context of this update...

You are going to wait for the next version? It is a free download! What are you waiting for?

So not only is the joke terrible and old, but you tried to wedge it into a situation in which is does not fit. Give up on yourself, you are a lost cause.

Jebus said on October 11, 2012 at 3:24 p.m.

wait something free from capcom? le gasp. now if they only gave us back our money for intentionally making limited games. also why waste time on a game that many people dropped and not continue on umvc3, a game which we waited 10 years for only to have a re-release 9 months later and then completely had all support removed

#48
Dygengar said on October 11, 2012 at 3:24 p.m.

Why are they even still working on the noob catered jabroni infested crapshoot of a game it's been dead for a long time major tourney trophies thrown in the garbage no showing at EVO this year stop trying to be Dr Frankenstein and leave it ALONE!!!

#49
chickenlegs90 said on October 11, 2012 at 3:25 p.m.

@39 better to milk a LIVE cow than a DEAD one. And don't worry, I won't watch/play this game...most of the community isn't either.

Sure free updates are nice but why not marvel or sf4 which have at least shown they're capable of lasting a reasonable amount of time?

#50
ConneX said on October 11, 2012 at 3:25 p.m.

@45.... Because the FGC is stupid and hates fighting games.

#51
KleenexGhost said on October 11, 2012 at 3:26 p.m.

Well it's a free update, so it's not like they're making us pay for it. That being said, I'm willing to keep an open mind. Hell, I wasn't really digging SFIV until they released Super.

at #57 exactly umvc3 has more of a fast paced feel and brings more excitement but it has a few issues that need to be fix yet this gets everything the company has, sigh, i want to play games with fighters not steroid freaks

#59
Hazzird said on October 11, 2012 at 3:35 p.m.

traded sfxt in after 1st week, and after this my copy will still sit in the back at gamestop, not interested in the slightest, could care less about this update, because unless it comes out soon (like 1month at the least) people still won't play this god awful game.

MrWow12 said on October 11, 2012 at 3:35 p.m.

@52 Why fix what isn't broken? Are you serious?

I would rather have capcom fix SFxT than just toss it out like most sheeple on here want. If you think there isn't a good portion of this community that is glad to be getting a free update, then stick to just assuming stuff.

#62
Skeez said on October 11, 2012 at 3:36 p.m.

I'm not *mad* at this, I'm just surprised Capcom is trying SO hard with this game specifically.

I mean, I imagine UMvC3 would be considered the favorite(assuming SSF4's been milked dry), you'd think they'd go with that, but no.

But hey, it's free, and if they can make SFxT a good game, more power to them I guess.

#63
spman2099 said on October 11, 2012 at 3:38 p.m.

@57

You are right UMvC3 IS a good game. Do you know what wasn't a good game? MvC3. It is almost like the second iteration is always significantly better. Why wouldn't we want them to give Street Fighter x Tekken that same boost?

#64
SgtKonus said on October 11, 2012 at 3:42 p.m.

The thing is people would pay for significant updates to AE or MVC3 ( stages, characters, costumes, minor tweaks ) but this has to be given away free because Capcom fvcked up so badly the first time & they're committed to SFxT at this point.

Honestly they didnt say anything about rebalancing or any gameplay changes, I just saw more usless features in an already overflowing feature/system filled game. I just want to fight.

#71
KleenexGhost said on October 11, 2012 at 3:50 p.m.

Did they say anything about better matchmaking? I recently got SFxT for $20 off Amazon, and first day online the majority of guys I fought against were B rank or higher. It's hard to find guys in my skill level. Hopefully that's something they improve on.

2) Shut yo ass
3) Leave this article or any other SFXT article iight

#75
skyrimer said on October 11, 2012 at 3:54 p.m.

Yes, amazing news!

I hope people have an open mind with this game and give it another try, almost all of the best capcom fighting games were so-so on release, sfiii, cvs,mvc3, sf4 etc.

Only with the things mentioned by @24 this game will improve a lot, I can't wait for a full change log! The Tekken roster improvement will better this game a lot, Tekken chars are a lot more fun to play with their powerful overheads and damage.

And it's FREE!!! Nice move from Capcom, the game is so cheap now that you'll basically get a whole new game next year with a bucketload of content for $20 or less.

I hope all game companies give up on making fighting games for another ten years; that way this pathetic community can die. Or at the very least, we can cut some of the dead weight.

I like playing fighting games, most people in the FGC prefer bitching about Capcom and jumping on bandwagons.

The FGC needs to die.

The Problem some people have (not me, I could really care less) is that the time, resource, man power, and money that could be used to support real popular games with huge support (SSF4 & Marvel) are being wasted (in some peoples eyes) on a game that is next to dead (SFXT).

#81
Astro_Notch said on October 11, 2012 at 4:01 p.m.

Came here expecting most people to be excited only to realize that the FGC are a bunch of whiners. Crying because Capcom doesn't wanna let a game die and are updating it for FREE!?

#59 hit the nail right on the head with that one.

@84 You're right.

Some people do have legit questions like "Why hasn't Capcom been supporting UMVC3 like this?"

#87
JumpMan33 said on October 11, 2012 at 4:09 p.m.

People are still pissed about the character DLC and don't want to give this game a 2ed chance. Its kind of funny how a lot of strong players actually like cross tekken (Dieminion, Justin, Sanford, Infiltration, Tatsu,and more) because they like how the game has no real comeback systems, but stream monsters didn't want to give the game real chance outside of a few weeks.

New Flash: The first few weeks of any fighting game is gonna look bad because people have not had the time to really figure out the game. First few months of SF4 : "this game is nothing but holding downback and sucks". First few months of MvC3 "this game is random and sucks" Yet over time people grew to like these game. I believe it was UltraDavid who said "People are still playing the game like SF4, and are not really playing the game(xtekken) right." witch was true, most players were not even making use of basic stuff like the alpha counter system among other things.

My point is that games like Marvel 2 and CvS2 were not declared great competitive games overnight. People grinded these games out for months before finding the true nature of these games. Yet the new blood of the FGC does not want to wait, if there is not flashy comebacks in the first few weeks of a game it "dead".

Now there is high level SFxT gameplay footage that pops up on eventhubs from time to time and the game looks very different in terms of how the game is played and it makes the game look more fun. Just because a game looks boring at a low lever does not mean it can't be fun at a high level. I think the game should get a 2ed chance and see where the competitive community can take it but I guess more people would rather see another fighting game "die".

#91
SJFox said on October 11, 2012 at 4:11 p.m.

EventHubs, I love your news coverage, but your community (as well as SRK) is balls garbage.

I'm not a fan of the game or the practices the company made for it either but I don't see how a free update for any fighting game can be criticized (even before it is completely detail..)

And why not support UMVC3 over SFxT? Because SFxT obviously needs said support.

You guys are just the worst type of people. It's a wonder why devs should even try to connect with the community if this is the feedback they receive.

#92
skyrimer said on October 11, 2012 at 4:11 p.m.

BTW on twitter SUPARSTARX says the update is coming in december so it's not going to take much more now for the update.

About haters, I'm 99% they didn't try this game more than a few weeks expecting sf4 with tags and that's not sfxt. This game has evolved so much, just watch jibbo stream or ssfevo high level matches.

#93
AnaboliChris said on October 11, 2012 at 4:14 p.m.

trainingdummy said on October 11, 2012 at 4:17 p.m.

hater of this game can't get over the simple fact that capcom tried something different for their DLC approach and failed miserably. I'm pretty sure they will learn from that and not repeat it in the near future. You people hold grudges like an elephant never forgets.

Also, people hate the game because top fighting game player A didn't like it, and so people latch on to that statement and thus, the bandwagoning begins.

And the fact that the update is free is a good move by capcom.

The only thing i hoped for was new characters. But whatever, if it fixes the issues completely then i'm down.

You trolling, hating hypocrites need to die already. You don't care about the game, right? WTH are you still doing here taking the time to think, type and share your dumbass opinions that are worth nothing? You suck at this game and probably every other game there is so you bash it thinking that it makes you sound cool. We get it already.

#98
Eye_of_Orochi said on October 11, 2012 at 4:20 p.m.

What's funny about this is that people are feeling screwed over by Capcom because it isn't what they wanted. As a SFxT player, I see this as Capcom doing something that may not even yield them a profit, yet they are going through with it anyways. It is to try and give their game a second chance, and to also appease those us of that have already paid out the *** for DLC and put time into a game everyone is putting unnecessary effort into trying to bury.

I am well aware that Capcom love their money, but I am also grateful they aren't just laying down and listening to the whining babies of the FGC and are giving this game support. You all call games like SF4 and UMvC3 "perfect", while calling SFxT garbage. So why would they fix or add to those when this game obviously needs the most help? Sorry, Capcom has moved on from those games, both of which I also believe are good as they are.

(It would kill them to make a new Gargoyle's Quest.)
