Capcom’s Ayano explains Street Fighter X Tekken Xbox 360 Co-op Omission
Unlike the PlayStation 3 version, the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter X Tekken doesn’t support local co-op when playing online. An omission that Xbox 360 owners seem to be pretty steamed about and naturally, have taken to the internet to express their displeasure.
Assistant producer Tomoaki Ayano posted on the Capcom-Unity blog and gave his explanation for the feature’s absence, saying it really came down to resource and time management.
“Unfortunately, due to time and resource issues, we weren’t able to get that feature into the Xbox 360 version and we apologize to those players who were looking forward to it. Throughout the development process, there are times when new features are added (and we added a lot of them!) and there are also times where we have to make tough decisions regarding things to cut. This was one of those times. This mode is supported in the PlayStation 3 version, however, since we tackled that earlier and found the architecture of their system to be more conducive to implementing it.”
Ayano concluded by promising that information on game updates would be coming soon. Possibly a fix for those sound problems Mike mentioned in his review?
