E3 Rumor: Street Fighter vs. Tekken in the works?

June 7, 2010

This one may end up going in to the “probably started by a bored teenager” bin, but the prospect of it actually happening is worth a post.

The rumor started by way of another MYSTICAL SOURCE, who told The Kartel that Namco and Capcom are working on a Street Fighter vs. Tekken game and that it might be revealed at E3. But as Jonathan Holmes of Destructoid points out:

  • Street Fighter and Tekken, while obviously being the same genre of game, are completely different games. How would these two different types of fighting gameplay be meshed, if at all?
  • Capcom usually doesn’t announce another Vs. title until they’re wrapped up with the one they’re working on (Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is still in production.)
  • Why would Capcom compete against itself, especially when Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a such a sure hit?

While definitely intriguing, I think I’m calling bullocks on this one. Let’s see if I’m right during E3 next week.
