Originally announced at Comic-Con 2010 alongside its mirrored counterpart, Namco Bandai’s Tekken x Street Fighter has had very little public presence after its initial reveal. While many believed the title had been quietly canceled, Katsuhiro Harada recently made it clear in an interview with Siliconera that the game is still very much in development.
Last year, Namco opened an unofficial poll to gauge who the community would like to see included in the Tekken x Street Fighter cast, the results of which can be found here. This got us thinking: has public opinion changed at all in the past year? To that end, we thought it would be fun to pose the question to our readers here on Shoryuken and see what they had to say on the matter.
With the dearth of information about this title, the only confirmed characters at this point are Jin Kazama and Ryu, with the possibility of their alter egos Devil Jin and Evil Ryu also making appearances. Similar to our post about the fifth Ultra Street Fighter IV character, we’re curious which characters you want to see in Tekken x Street Fighter. Whether you have a handful of favorites or a huge laundry list, off the cuff requests or detailed opinions, make sure to visit the comments and have your voice be heard!
To help you get in the mood, we’ve included footage from Namco Bandai’s panel at Gamescom 2010, where they provided a first look at Tekken x Street Fighter and some models that were still in development, and some concept art of Ryu and Chun-Li that Harada released in 2011.
