Finally, a list of confirmed cast for Capcom's Street Fighter X Tekken has been announced, along with the release of several cool new trailers, gameplay footages, character arts, and some new screenshots at Capcom's 2011 Captivate press show.

Fighting game enthusiasts, choose your allegiance!

First announced during last year's San Diego Comic-Con International by Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono, the ultimate fighting game fantasy that pits Capcom's iconic characters from their Street Fighter franchise against characters from the wildly popular Tekken franchise from Namco has finally moved a step closer into reality as Capcom unveiled more details of the much anticipated game at the Captivate press show.

Slated for a 2012 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Street Fighter X Tekken, incidentally Capcom's iteration of the crossover deal between Namco and Capcom (Namco will be releasing their very own version of the crossover, entitled "Tekken X Street Fighter"), heavily featured the gameplay mechanics of Street Fighter IV with its models and backgrounds rendered in 3D while the gameplay firmly set on a traditional 2D plane.

With no further ado, check out the awesome cinematic trailer along with the gameplay trailer and footage right after the jump.

Just in case you are still wondering what's the "X" in the title for (it actually is meant to be pronounced as "cross"), and why they didn't just named the game as Street Fighter Vs. Tekken, Yoshinori Ono explained the notion behind the name in an interview with Kotaku:

"We were trying to make it a much more adversarial kind of title," he replied through a translator. "What we saw with the old Vs. games, like 'X-Men vs. Street Fighter is that the 'Vs.' would insinuate that they're fighting against each other. But right there in the title screen, Cyclops and Ryu are shaking hands. They kind of hijacked the 'Vs.' for that and they've had kind of a friendly feel about them. Marvel characters don't hate all Capcom characters and vice versa.

This time, we wanted to really differentiate and say the Tekken and Street Fighter guys don't get along. They want to kick each other's butts. Namco and Capcom are competitors, not friends in completely different fields like Capcom and Marvel. It was an effort to come up with a new brand to show this is a serious, aggressive fight. And we're not actually going to shake hands on the title screen."

For those who just can't get enough of the gameplay footage, check out the clip below for one running for more than 8 minutes.
