Street Fighter X Tekken Vita has 79/100 review score on MetaCritic, generally seeing positive marks

Street Fighter X Tekken Vita has 79/100 review score on MetaCritic, generally seeing positive marks MetaCritic has been compiling reviews on the Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken since it was released last month, with many critics giving it reasonably solid marks, coming in with an overall Metascore of 79/100 so far.

To give these numbers some context, we've listed how other portable fighting games from Capcom have performed, along with their console counterparts. Where two numbers are listed, the first score is for the PS3 version and the second is the Xbox 360.

Portables:
Super Street Fighter 4 3DS — 85/100
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Vita — 80/100
Street Fighter X Tekken Vita — 79/100

Consoles:
Street Fighter X Tekken — 84/100, 83/100
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 — 80/100, 79/100
Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition — 80/100, 78/100

Despite some bad press from various media outlets and the community, Street Fighter X Tekken has received solid numbers from many reviewers.

These numbers haven't necessarily translated into very strong sales for the game, as the console release underperformed a bit on Capcom's original estimate of 2 million in sales, only gathering 1.4 million and Media Create reported that the Japanese Vita release only moved around 5,000 copies when it was first released, but numbers from other regions haven't been reported, yet.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom - buy it while you still can, Street Fighter X Tekken digital update

Christian Svensson is once again back on the Capcom-Unity forums answering questions. When asked if Tatsunoko vs. Capcom will make it to the Wii U, Svensson responded saying that the rights with Tatsunoko have lapsed and so they can no longer sell the game at all.

Our rights with Tatsunoko have lapsed fairly recently (so we're no longer allowed to sell the title physically or digitally). Unless Japan were to strike a new deal, I'd say the chances of this happening are slim.

Additionally, GregaMan made a blog post detailing Street Fighter X Tekken's small update this week which brings Boost Gem Packs 16-18, Color Palette Addon-On 9 and Boost Gem Trial Pack 7 are available for download on both PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace.

Ayano taking a second look at Pandora tweaks in Street Fighter X Tekken, discusses other changes Street Fighter X Tekken producer, Tomoaki Ayano, talked about the recent changes they've made to the game in his latest blog entry.

It’s only the beginning of November, but I’m already shivering! I gotta get up early for work every day, and let me tell you, autumn mornings are pretty chilly! Even some of the people on my team have caught colds because of the weather...

Street Fighter X Tekken PS Vita sales in Japan very low

Street Fighter X Tekken PS Vita sales in Japan very low The PS Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken was released last week, it only sold a total or 5,420 copies in Japan according to Media Create.

Capcom had pushed the PS Vita version of the game pretty hard. This could be attributed to many different things for the simple fact it's a hand held and fighters aren't as popular on them or the game's bad press it received early on in the console release.

The console version had sold around 1.4 million copies worldwide and Capcom stated that sales had "lagged."
