The legacy that Street Fighter X Tekken has is often divisive between people in the fighting game community. While there exists the camp of players who fell in love with the game it became, many still remember it for the game it was — and the poor marketing choices that Capcom made that resulted in its downfall.

In this video, Stumblebee takes a hard look at the game — including its initial announcement, the promotional machine before its release, and its flaws upon release. He also delves into what made the game better within its title update — which still ultimately still saw the game widely abandoned for the Ultra Street Fighter IV update.
