E3: Street Fighter x Tekken PS3/Vita crossplay is nice

We knew that a Vita version of Street Fighter x Tekken was definitely possible after seeing Capcom's work on Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, but how well will the two versions work together in cross play? Beautifully. Well, at l...

Cliffy B calls on-disc DLC 'an unfortunate reality'

Preview: Street Fighter x Tekken (Vita)

Apr 10 // Dale North
Capcom says that they're not done with the game yet, and are open to adding more features that will use the touch panels and cameras. Capcom is already looking at using the Vita's digital compass, and Near functionality, and may try something with augmented reality in the future. Stay tuned.  The big news with the Vita version of Street Figher x Tekken is that 12 new characters have been added to the line-up, and that connecting this Vita verson to the PS3 will unlock the new characters in the console version. These unlocked characters can even be used in PS3-to-PS3 battles, making the Vita version of the game work as a sort of expansion key. The 12 added characters are as follows: Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, and Sakura from the Street Fighter side, and Alisa, Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack, Lars Alexandersson and Lei Wulong from the Tekken side. Vita-to-PS3 connectivity goes beyond characters, as game saves and customized data can be transferred via a data link. All DLC purchased on the PS3 can be used on the Vita version, and vice versa. Worldwide cross-platform play is supported over two Vitas, or a Vita and a PS3, with full support over 3G or Wifi connections. We saw a real-time demonstration of local play between a Vita and PS3, with the action perfectly matched between the two systems. The systems never fell out of synchronization, and the action was equally smooth on both platforms. If the same tight synchronization is available over online battles, gamers will be impressed.  Much like UMvC3, the Street Fighter x Tekken portable port is very impressive, being almost a perfect match to its console counterpart. All of the action, animation and framerate are there, with a side-by-side PS3 and Vita demonstration proving that. I was also able to play a few Vita vs.Vita matches with other attending press members, trying out new characters like Blanka, Sakura, Elena and Dudley. Battles went off without a hitch during my sessions, with Vita game play holding up nicely to the console versions.  Street Fighter x Tekken Vita will launch with the upcoming improvements for the console game already installed. In the coming months the console version will see improved online experiences, tweaks to the infinite combo issues, and continued support for tournament play organization. Capcom has also acknowledged the online sound issues and are working on a patch to fix these. Expect to see a patch in early April.   Capcom says to expect more news on new modes, features and content to be revealed leading up to the fall 2012 release date of Street Fighter x Tekken.

Street Fighter X Tekken: Pandora mode not above being cut

Oct 31 // Wesley Ruscher
Street Fighter X Tekken (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 [Previewed], PC)Developer: CapcomPublisher: CapcomReleases: March 6, 2012 At the moment Pandora mode is a last resort, desperation attempt for a player on the verge of death. When either partner is down to 25 percent health or less, tapping down twice followed by a simultaneous press of the two medium attacks will sacrifice that player and give the other partner about five seconds of enhanced strength to finish the job. The benefit to this move: its zero frames, damage is multiplied, and the super meter becomes unlimited. Unfortunately at the moment, while it looks incredibly impressive with its stylized glowing edges, I found the mode mostly useless and even a little busted. From what I could tell, you don't take actual damage when Pandora mode is activated. Instead your life bar drains at a fixed rate until it's depleted. So even if you are in the middle of a Super that normally would have killed your enemy, if your life bar finishes before they're KO'd you lose. Now while that all sounds like logical risk versus reward fighting tactics and makes perfect sense, what happens when both players initiate the mode? Well, from my experience whoever is the benefactor of firing off Pandora mode second is guaranteed the win. Granted, the opportunity to counter this move with your own will not always present itself but the fact that each character's life bar drains at the same rate and damage from attacks are mitigated opens up a potential flaw in the balance of the game. It's something Capcom's own fighting game consultant Seth Killian agrees still needs work. "Pandora [mode] right now I would say is pretty weak-sauce. I would not activate it. We're still playing with it and trying to figure [it] out... This is not the final form." Street Fighter X Tekken still has a good six months of development time ahead and the build I was playing wasn't the most up-to-date, as Rufus was not available. Outside of Pandora mode the rest of the game feels really solid. The Cross Art and Cross Assault tag attacks are viscious and make players really decide how to spend their Super meter. Every character also feels really balanced, with no one character dominating the game -- at least yet -- and it's nice to see old favorites like Rolento back in the mix. Capcom also recently teased a gaggle of new, yet unannounced fighters so there is definitely more work to be done. Which speaks good for the sanctity of the game's overall balance and for Pandora mode. "We're going to try to make Pandora more interesting or just cut it," Killian said. "I'm not above cutting it even though we just announced it." Hopefully that's not the case for Pandora mode. It's an interesting concept that as Killian put to me "is a game changer," just unfortunately at the moment "not a game winner."
