NYCC: Hands On With Street Fighter X Tekken

Like and share this

It’s been a huge work in progress but all the work has really paid off in Street Fighter X Tekken. I got a chance to play the game at New York Comic Con the past weekend and I was pretty stunned at how well the game played. The art direction pretty much keeps the Street Fighter 4 style between both Tekken and Street Fighter characters, and it bodes very well with the Tekken characters surprisingly. The game will introduce a new Gem system, which will give players different attributes and give players a different way to mix things up. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to test out the Gem system, but at least we know the system will add a lot of extended game play. The fighters from Tekken may take a little getting used to because of the six button layout, but more or less the buttons are similar. Also the hit boxes felt a little tighter, so playing as King, Zangief, Hugo, or any short reaching characters will be a little difficult since the player will most likely be required get in really close. Keep your eyes peeled for the special edition that will be coming out with the game March 6, 2012!
