Tekken X Street Fighter may cater to beginning players in similar fashion as Tekken Revolution Namco Bandai's upcoming release of Tekken X Street Fighter may be more in the vein of Tekken Revolution than Tekken Tag Tournament 2, at least if recent hints from Katsuhiro Harada are any indication.


The leader of the Tekken project talked about how important it is to cater to beginning players, with a number of people being complimentary of Namco's approach with Tekken Revolution, in that regard.

ChingachgookNM: Many liked Tekken Revolution. If Tekken X Street Fighter is easy to get into for beginners it's good!

Harada: Beginner and new comer is a important for fighting games.

ChingachgookNM: Talking with players, they really like no Bounds in Tekken Revolution. I agree don't bring Bounds back. Find other mechanics.

Harada: Good for beginners.

Some major review outlets like IGN and GameSpot were openly critical of TTT2's steep learning curve, citing that the, "series remains unapologetically brutal," and that, " it could certainly do a heck of a lot better," introducing players to the genre.

It's not known if the reviews like these were a factor in Namco making some adjustments to their core gameplay with Tekken Revolution, but it's a plausible theory, as numerous review sites cited this same issue in their articles.
