Street Fighter X Tekken not due for two years A few more details about Street Fighter X Tekken were revealed this morning. Here's a recap of new information that came about.
• The target release date is two years from now. Ono expects the time frame for another major announcement to be next year's Captivate, which is held in April.

• The reason for such an early announcement at Comic-Con was because Capcom wanted to do something for the fans.

• Development on the two sides is being handled completely separate. They will not be sharing information between the teams. Capcom will be doing their own designs for the Namco characters, and Namco will handle designs for the Capcom fighters. They're also working separately on the gameplay for both titles.

• Yoshinori Ono said they're thinking about making the game 2 vs. 2.

• It will be a 6 button input system, like the Street Fighter games, however Ono mentioned that he'd like to add something that he referred to as an "assist" feature. He said the iPhone version of Street Fighter 4 has something of an answer here — a feature that lets players feel that they were able to do tough moves.

• Development on the game began just one or two months ago, but Ono thinks that Capcom's version will probably come out first.

• They're considering putting in the early generation characters from each franchise.

• Both sides are looking at these games as a competition and not a collaboration, as they want to challenge each other in all areas, from sales to game play.
