Tekken's Katsuhiro Harada making an announcement right before EVO 2014 USF4 Finals; Yoshinori Ono will be present

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • July 12, 2014 at 7:48 a.m. PDT

Yesterday on the SrkEVO2 stream, it was mentioned that Tekken Project development team leader Katsuhiro Harada would be making an announcement on EVO Sunday.

The impending announcement was confirmed later in the day, when Harada himself tweeted an image of the updated EVO Sunday schedule, along with a message reminding members of the Tekken community (specifically Tekken) to take note.



Harada will be making this announcement at around 5.30PM (PDT) on EVO Sunday, sandwiched between the finals for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Ultra Street Fighter 4.

What's interesting is that in the same time block, it was also mentioned that Capcom's Yoshinori Ono would be making an appearance to greet Capcom fighting game fans at the venue -- although that may have nothing to do with Harada's announcement whatsoever.

At this point, it's hard to tell if Harada's announcement would be something that only concerns Tekken fans (which would explain why he's calling out in particular for the Tekken community to take notice), or if it is somehow related to Capcom fighting games as well.

It could very well be related -- the announcement would be made between the grand finals of Capcom's two leading fighting games at the moment, after all. Perhaps Harada had thought that it was a given that Capcom fighting games would be tuning in, and so he called out only to the Tekken community specifically to remind them to tune in as well.

Let the speculations begin, EventHubs. Only one more day till we find out what Harada's announcement is all about.

So, they haven't forgotten Tekken X Street Fighter? That would be awesome!

Not a big Tekken system fan here but i'd really like to see whet they did with the SF characters. :D

Since it's before the SF finals you really don't have to be Columbo to figure that one out.Can't wait!

Bout time, had us waiting long enough!

Looking forward to seeing Akuma in a Tekken game. Heh.

I thought TxSF is long dead. I hope to be proven wrong but I will try not get my hopes up.

#14
TheTTimeLives said on July 12, 2014 at 8:19 a.m.

So I guess Tekken x SF actually exists. With the failure that was SF x TK you would think that the would just have given up on the idea.

#15
KarbyP said on July 12, 2014 at 8:27 a.m.

It's hard to say. The obvious conclusion is that it has to be TxSF, sure.

But it could be something else altogether... like...

Yeah, okay, it's probably TxSF. I can't think of any other reason why they'd choose to announce anything else at that time slot.

#16
LeonX said on July 12, 2014 at 8:30 a.m.

I'm the only one who wants tekken 7 over TKxSF? :\

Many franchises that Capcom makes a crossover is cool, but when the other companies make a crossover with Capcom, it's not cool, like SVC Chaos!

txsf

Im just going to expect Tekken Revolution 2014 so I cant be disappointed

XDIEX said on July 12, 2014 at 8:38 a.m.

Harada has said many times on twitter that TXSF isn't dead. IT IS TIME!

Galletano said on July 12, 2014 at 8:45 a.m.

He'll anonce his favorite whiskey brand or something like that, just wait and see.

#21
sarif2soon said on July 12, 2014 at 8:52 a.m.

It was a ONE-TIME thing!

No other company has made a cross-over with Capcom other than SNK with their SVC...

#22
Gotomaster said on July 12, 2014 at 9:04 a.m.

Along with Ono there of all people.

#23
irc_mocpac said on July 12, 2014 at 9:17 a.m.

Before Ultra
Ono will be there
In front of Street Fighter fans

It's Tekken X Street Fighter.

#24
Jayson619 said on July 12, 2014 at 9:21 a.m.

My guesses:

Harada announces a PS4-ONLY TEKKEN 8.

Ono announces a PS4-ONLY USFIV.

#25
BEER_GAYTES said on July 12, 2014 at 9:25 a.m.

I really hope that Tekken X Street Fighter doesn't fail like SFXT and that it will be a Cross Gen Game.

#26
xShonuffx said on July 12, 2014 at 9:25 a.m.

If Yoshinori Ono is going to be there you can bet its TxSF.

Or

Super Street Fighter x Tekken Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

JK, well can't wait tomorrow.

#27
ArcadeRobot said on July 12, 2014 at 9:27 a.m.

TEKKEN✖️Street Fighter right on time for next gen systems PS 4 and XB one!! GET READY FOR THE NEXT BATTLE 👊 #Tekken20thAnniversary #Announcement

#28
Sir_Kenjamin said on July 12, 2014 at 9:29 a.m.

My guess is that he will announce his secret love affair with Ono and they will be married on stage. But to be honest, the whole "getting married in Vegas" thing is cliched.

#29
Smorgasboard said on July 12, 2014 at 9:40 a.m.

Another fan service character for Tekken Revolution!

Yeah, TxSF or nothing important.

#30
FightDirty said on July 12, 2014 at 9:41 a.m.

Sounds great, tomorrow I can watch the World Cup and when that's over this announcement will come out soon afterwards. Might be a rather exciting Sunday.

Risingpunch said on July 12, 2014 at 9:48 a.m.

about effing time

#32
enkil said on July 12, 2014 at 9:49 a.m.

Probably TXSF, but will he mention Rise of Incarnates???
Devil Asuka v. Devil Sakura

#33
Smorgasboard said on July 12, 2014 at 9:51 a.m.

Maybe they should also announce the results for Tekken cause I think a lot of people missed it.

#34
Focusflute said on July 12, 2014 at 9:54 a.m.

Hopefully TxSF and then DS4!!!!!

#35
t0fu said on July 12, 2014 at 9:55 a.m.

am i the only one that hopes its NOT txsf?

#36
EagleBirdMan said on July 12, 2014 at 10:13 a.m.

"Alright everyone. We're here to happily tell you about Tekken vs Street Fighter!! ...It's cancelled."

Lol. That would be priceless.

#37
mario3d said on July 12, 2014 at 10:14 a.m.

TK vs SF let's goooooooo!!!

#38
ReddChief said on July 12, 2014 at 10:14 a.m.

Most likely TxSF, can't wait to see some gameplay, finally might be a 3D fighter that people will play and not be released DOA but if it's the same ole slow clunky stiff gameplay as the rest then forget about it.

#39
BK said on July 12, 2014 at 10:18 a.m.

It's funny I JUST said a few day ago that he's gonna announce that he scrapped the game. Still wouldn't be surprised if he did. Lol

Let's hope I'm wrong and this is the announcement we've been waiting for.

#40
GiBGUN said on July 12, 2014 at 10:32 a.m.

Finally Tekken X Street Fighter?

#41
jme said on July 12, 2014 at 10:42 a.m.

Not a fan of Tekken gameplay engine, more of a fan of soul caliber series, Might not get it but we'll see.

harada looks too gangsta

#46
Dimensional said on July 12, 2014 at 11:40 a.m.

Sounds like its Tekken X SF but its not definite he could just be announcing something at that time to get the most exposure rather than it having something to do with SF directly.

#47
ryuhayabusa13 said on July 12, 2014 at 12:06 p.m.

Yeah Ono being Present, Probably obviously Tekken X Sf. maybe still a little early for Tekken 7

#48
Nekobyte said on July 12, 2014 at 12:12 p.m.

Harada: "Prepare for Tekken X Street Fighter!!!"
Ono: "Exclusively on iOS and Android!"

#54
Amerika said on July 12, 2014 at 12:51 p.m.

As others have said the only thing that makes sense is TxSF since it's obviously going to be about Tekken and it's right before the Ultra finals.

#55
xrd_sign4 said on July 12, 2014 at 1:15 p.m.

So the tekken creator is making an announcement and the street fighter creator will be present during said announcement. Watch how this wont be tekken x street fighter

#58
wfallninja said on July 12, 2014 at 1:35 p.m.

MAYBE CAPCOM VS NAMCO?! Haha I agree with you alongside most of the peeps here it's probably TxSF

#59
VanCityPlayboy said on July 12, 2014 at 1:36 p.m.

I know it's gonna be Tekken X SF for sure but I am not gonna hold my breath for anything else but if it's something else I would hope for another SF4 game with Alex in it but I doubt it

#60
ChampToni said on July 12, 2014 at 1:38 p.m.

Guys, I bet it's gonna be something like: ,, streetfighter x tekken is coming to ps4'' :oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo And the raging can begin ^^

#61
Sadisticcupid said on July 12, 2014 at 1:44 p.m.

I'd be okay with this but if you do keep up with tekken card tournament they do a lot of updates on facebook so we wouldn't need to worry about something like that

#62
dezeray112 said on July 12, 2014 at 2:10 p.m.

Fingers crossed, hopefully it will be Tekken X Street Fighter.

Is rolento gonna be in it?

#64
theshredder39 said on July 12, 2014 at 2:41 p.m.

Tekken X Street Fighter is a given.

I have way more faith in that than I did with Street Fighter X Tekken because even though I'm not a tekken guy, I decided to get Tag Tournament 2 and loved the hell out of it, meanwhile I put down Street Fighter 4 a few years before. I'm also excited to finally see Street Fighter characters outside of the comic book art style that was in SF4, not that I disliked it I'm just looking forward to see them in a different art style.

Tekken X Street Fighter means a potential HD Juri.
I am sold already.

#67
Aluppoj said on July 12, 2014 at 4:07 p.m.

You don't do a Tekken announcement with Ono on stage, just before USF4, and not have it be SF related.

It's Tekken X Street Fighter.

If Alex is included, I'm Hype.

#68
SolidSul said on July 12, 2014 at 4:57 p.m.

TKXSF! Or that Pokken fighter that was kind of shown? With 3D pokemon fighting eachother lol

#69
Evilhero said on July 12, 2014 at 4:58 p.m.

Harada spent a good hour watching the SFxT side tournament today. I really hope it's TxSF!

#70
TrueGamingGuru said on July 12, 2014 at 5:06 p.m.

I'm very curious to see what Harada has to offer, and Tekken is going to have its 20th anniversary so I hope something for Tekken game gets announced. I'd expected to see TXSF like everyone else, although with his projects been going off schedule after he released TTT2 from Tekken Card Tournament, proposing localization of Project X Zone, & Tekken Revolution (which this game hasn't gotten more updates outside of raising up levels & rank titles in Rank Matches).

Can't wait until its tomorrow.

#71
DeePhenom said on July 12, 2014 at 5:15 p.m.

I want Tekken 7 over TKxSF

deus said on July 13, 2014 at 6:17 p.m.

The last few months Katsuhiro Harada tweeted that he would be announcing 3 to 4 games this year so who knows, he could be announcing Tekken 7 (leaked already) and other games like TxSF
