Tekken X Street Fighter: First Look - Gamescom 2010

Posted by Grey Friday, August 20, 2010

Namco strikes back.
With San Diego Comic-Con and E3 2010 behind us, The Daily Zombies continue our perpetual coverage on major promotional events with the European answer to Los Angeles's E3 and Japan's Tokyo Game Show, Germany's very own Gamescom 2010, held at the Cologne Trade Fair Center (Köln Messe) in Cologne, Germany from August 18th to 22nd. Be prepared for continued coverage on major gaming announcements for the coming week.

Having earlier covered on the upcoming fighting game epic, Street Fighter X Tekken, we now turn our undead eyes on Namco's very own answer to the fighting game crossover of epic proportion. The "ongoing rivalry" between Street Fighter series producer Yoshinoro Ono and Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada has been well-documented, with their respective trash-talking making the rounds across online gaming medias. However, at the TEKKEN X Street Fighter tournament held by Namco Bandai at GamesCom yesterday, it was a blissful sight as both Ono and Harada presented Gamescom attendees with the same Street Fighter X Tekken gameplay that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last month.

Indicating in his announcement that the Tekken team were caught up with other projects (most likely the next installment in the long-running Tekken series) and further highlighting the fact that Namco Bandai will not be shipping the title until after Street Fighter X Tekken arrived, Harada presented fans a unfortunately brief glimpse of Tekken X Street Fighter. Several images depicting the 3d model of Ryu in the artistic style of Tekken were displayed. Although Ryu was wearing the gi of Paul Phoenix from Tekken in the pictures that was on display, he certainly looked right at home in the Tekken Universe.

Check them out after the jump.

Update: Both Ono and Harada spoke at length on the clashes of styles between the two fighting games giant, the difficulty of blending them in their respective titles, and how both titles came along. While they still took digs at each other, as the purported feud further escalated in unimaginably new ways (watching the below video embedded from Kotaku might just change the way you look at these two gaming giants forever), it is apparent they are two old chums working in the same line.
