New Street Fighter X Tekken Media & Character Announcements!Platforms: Sony PlayStation 3 | Microsoft Xbox 360
Yes, new characters confirmed in Street Fighter X Tekken! We now know that joining Ryu & Co. will be Balrog, Juri & Vega from the Street Fighter side, and Paul, Law and Xiaoyu from the Tekken universe. That means the roster as it stands today is as follows:
Ryu, Kazuya, Ken, Nina, Guile, King, Abel, Marduk, Chun-Li, Bob, Cammy, Julia, Sagat, Hwoarang, Dhalsim, Steve, Poison, Yoshimitsu, Hugo, Raven, Ibuki, Kuma, Rolento, Heihachi, Zangief, Lili, Rufus, Asuka, Balrog, Law, Vega, Paul, Juri, Xiaoyu and Mi. Bison as well as Cole (Infamous), Toro (Kitty!) & Kuro (Kitty!) as guests in the PS3 edition of the game.
We're really looking forward to this at The Digital Fix - taking the Street Fighter IV engine and adapting it to incorporate characters from the Tekken universe as well plus the addition of new mechanics (gems!). It cannot arrive quickly enough. Sadly we have to wait until March 9th 2012 to play it but until then check out the newly released video and images below:
