Street Fighter X Tekken
Plot / Synopsis

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.

The biggest hype that this Sony system exclusive character news were Pac-Man and Mega Man. Pac-Man because of how cool can Street Fighter X Tekken can get with the exclusion of that beloved video game classic icon, Pac-Man. Then we have Mega man which currently received some very mixed reviews from the gaming community. Haters will always hate and I can see why, this is not the android Japanese mech kid that fans grew fund off, but the bad box art version of the very first Mega Man game. Not to mention Megaman doesn't belong to both universes. But if you just look at these exclusive character trailer, all five of them are pretty farfetch from both Tekken and Street Fighter universes. So why hate one particular character?

This is not the first time that games have included characters outside of its universe(s). One of the more recent fighting game titles that did this was last 2011's Mortal Kombat (MK9) by including Freddy Krueger as a playable character. Nor this is the first time that a fighting game had a brand exclusives, so this announcement came to no surprise at all. If these are Sony's exclusive characters, I am now curious of what Microsoft has in store for its gamers. I'm sure it will not be long now before a trailer for it gets announced. By then we'll have to wait.
