Are you a fan of Street Fighter? Do you dream about delivering a real life hadouken to your enemies? If you answered yes to either (or both) of these questions, then you should really take a look at what Capcom has in store for fans come September. The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set will be released on September 18th and will cost $150. It will include the following:
- Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
- Street Fighter III Third Strike Online Edition
- Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, including all DLC
- Street Fighter X Tekken, including all DLC
- Two anime movies
- The full Street Fighter animated series
- Eleven discs of music
- Art book
- Light-up Ryu statue
- Ryu’s belt
I know our Editor-In-Chief will probably have this on release day, assuming he hasn’t already died of excitement upon seeing it.
On the bright side, free colors packs for the customization options and three new quick combos were added for your downloadable consumption. If you’re really feeling saucy, the swap costumes are available for $1 each character or $13 for each set of Street Fighter or Tekken characters. That’s 80 MSP or 1040 MSP respectively for the Xbox 360 gamers.
Capcom-Unity has also stated that the patch to update the sound glitches and add tournament support, which includes a more user-friendly gem selection option will hit April 10th.
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?

Street Fighter X Tekken (pronounced Street Fighter Cross Tekken) is just what the doctor ordered for the followers of Street Fighter, Tekken, or both. Ever since its reveal, fighting game fans in both the Capcom and Namco Bandai camps have salivated at the thought of a tag team style 2D fighter featuring classic and fan favorite characters. The intent was (and though we haven’t heard much from Namco Bandai, still is) for both companies to bring to life their own conceptions of a crossover fighter. Capcom leads off with an amalgam of Super Street Fighter IV and Tekken that is welcoming to new players, though maybe slightly overwhelming, and most assuredly a deep fighter for the hardcore fans. It introduces a plethora of new changes to the Street Fighter gameplay that this game is built around and assimilates the Tekken characters flawlessly while leaving their unique identities intact.
Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono and Namco Bandai’s Katsuhiro Harada revealed even more delectable DLC costumes for Street Fighter X Tekken at a Super Street Fighter IV official tournament. As is the theme for these costumes, Capcom and Tekken characters are “cosplaying” in the opposing teams respective outfits, such as Ogre as Gill or Balrog (Boxer) as Steve Fox and Vega (Claw) as Yoshimitsu. No details as far as release or pricing has been confirmed. Capcom is going to make a killing off of this.
In celebration of SFxT’s upcoming release on March 6, Capcom held a launch party in downtown Los Angeles. While there, Shacknews had the opportunity to catch up with Seth Killian, asking about the recent reveal of exclusive characters for Vita, and whether or not those characters would be ever be seen on consoles. Killian confirmed that console players would get them at some point:
We’ll find a way to make sure that console fans are happy, as well.
Unfortunately, he gave no specifics on when or how these characters would be distributed. The Vita version is launching in fall, so don’t expect them anytime soon.
That’s right folks, one of the most popular franchises in gaming is getting it’s own Monopoly board game edition. There’s even a poll to vote, which fans can decide which fighters they would like to appear as board figures. Though, there’s no word on an official release date just yet. Here’s a concept cover for the box:

Street Fighter X Tekken’s release draws closer and closer. Soon, you’ll be duking it out in what might be one of the biggest crossovers ever. PC gamers finally have their release date set for May 11th. Capcom-Unity brings the announcement with some new screenshots, some new videos, and a confirmation of what we already knew, the final character reveals of Bison, Akuma, Jin, and Ogre. Street Fighter X Tekken hits March 6th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Check back for an extensive review.
You thought those alternate costumes would be free?
In what appears to be a leaked list of expected DLC for Street Fighter X Tekken, you will see that Capcom is actually throwing in something free…colors. Otherwise, a breakdown in pricing for Boost Gem Packs, Costume Swap Packs (alternate costumes revealed some time ago showing Street Fighter characters in Tekken costumes and vice versa), New Challengers Pack (Cody, Guy, Christie, and Leo), and finally, an unlocker for those too lazy to unlock modes and unlockable characters on their own. None of this has been confirmed, but this absolutely fits the DLC business model Capcom has been using this generation. Now the question is, will this be in Microsoft Points or dollars for Xbox 360 gamers? Oh, and no, that is not an image of Cody from SFxT.
View the list after the jump.
Want more characters for Street Fighter X Tekken? Of course you do. Especially if you are a Xbox 360 gamer feeling jilted by the inclusion of Sony cats, Pac-Mans, and overweight Capcom joke characters. You can add Akuma (duh), Jin, and Ogre to the constantly growing list of characters in the upcoming crossover fighter.
The reveal comes via a Taiwanese site called Gamer. They posted some images of character movesets and some Taiwanese collector’s edition details, such as a 46 track soundtrack and Ono and/or Harada bobbleheads. Come on Capcom USA, where you at!?
