The fighting genre has come back in full force, not only on the home consoles, but on the Vita as well. Faithful translations of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift are available on the system. Today a new contender comes on the Vita, Street Fighter X Tekken.
Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, is pleased to confirm thatStreet Fighter® X Tekken® on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system is now available in North America. Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation Vita expands on the action-packed console experience, delivering competitive co-op fun that players of all skill levels can enjoy. With the full roster of 55 playable characters and new exclusive features, Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation Vita is packed with tons of content and boasts one of the most robust character line-ups in fighting game history.
Playing at home or on the streets, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system Cross-Play lets Street Fighter X Tekkenplayers compete anytime, anywhere, against anyone… either locally, with 3G or via Wi-Fi. Players can super combo their Street Fighter X Tekken experience by taking advantage of the numerous PlayStation Vita exclusive features including augmented reality, front and rear touch panel controls, near functionality, KO monument, ad-hoc fight request, and a gallery mode. Additionally, an all-new game mode called Burst Kumite will let players test their skills and strategies against a barrage of endless CPU-controlled opponents.
One of the most interesting features of Street Fighter X Tekken is Cross-Play, where you can play people on both the PS3 and the Vita. The best part is that you can do it no matter what kind of connection on the Vita you have. Hopefully this will catch on and more games will come out for the Vita with this feature.
