Street Fighter X Tekken
Plot / Synopsis

Unlike Capcom's other crossover fighting games (such as Marvel vs. Capcom), Street Fighter X Tekken will offer some semblance of a plot that will explain why these two otherwise disparate universes have come together.

As revealed by a trailer released by Capcom to coincide with the 2011 Tokyo Game Show, the center of the conflict between the Street Fighter and Tekken universes is a cubical object that crash-landed to Earth. The object is of a mysterious origin and researchers worldwide are unable to determine what purpose it serves. The only thing that can be understood is that when beings come into conflict around this object, it releases a water-like energy that brings more power to the combatants. Due to the object's tendency to react to conflict between beings, they name it "Pandora".

What this object has done that forces the characters of each universe to come to blows will be further explored in the game itself.

Capcom has finally listened to some of its clamoring supporters suggestion and request to have a decent plot to tie in to their fighting game series. A decent plot or storyline was lacking in Capcom's last fighting game which is Marvel vs Capcom 3. Don't get me wrong, MVC3 was an awesome crossover fighting game, but as someone who prefers some form of logic and story as to why everything is happening even if it is just a plain old fighting video game, MVC3 disappoints. Hopefully there are some cut scenes or decent story (intros, mid-battle cut scenes, unlockable endings, or a separate single player story-driven campaign) that will make Street Fighter x Tekken a more charming game outside its hardcore fighting game audience(market), or this is just me with high hopes for a fighting game.

Street Fighter X Tekken Character Reveals game trailer:

A vibrant display of character available for Street Fighter x Tekken. What is there to say, but this trailer is just awesome.

Street Fighter X Tekken Gameplay Features Trailer:

An all-out scramble fighting game mechanic could either be awesome or just a complete mess of the game experience. I hope that game mechanic is well-polished for it to become the crossover game's strength.
