That tech demo we saw of the Street Fighter X Tekken crossover running on an iPad earlier this month becomes a real boy, as Capcom shrinks Ryu, Nina, Chun-Li and Kazuya down until they fit inside iOS devices.
Street Fighter X Tekken Mobile features the same great fighting action of the console version, only without the pesky disc for everyone to get upset over. The controls are revamped to work with a touch screen, of course, because otherwise this would just be a video that would make us cry.
The four confirmed characters can be found hidden in the initial paragraph of this article. Street Fighter X Tekken Mobile will be available this summer for iPhone 4 or better, iPad 2 or better and fourth generation iPod Touches.
In updating the console versions of Street Fighter X Tekken to fix a few bugs, Capcom has accidentally introduced a new one, which completely breaks the game. Whoops.
Anyone updating to 1.04 and using Rolento's knife to attack a projectile will find that the results are not exactly desirable, in that it locks the game up, requiring a restart.
Bookies are now taking bets on what breaks when Capcom tries to fix this one. And by bookies, I mean me.
Capcom has taken heavy fire from gamers upset with the publisher's tendency to ship some of its games with on-disc downloadable content. Physical copies of games like Dragon's Dogma and Street Fighter X Tekken ship with content that you can only access if you dish out extra for the privilege.
Capcom Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson addressed the controversy in a blog post last night, saying the company plans to revisit its DLC strategy soon:
We've been getting several questions, here and elsewhere about the future of on-disc DLC.
We would like to assure you that we have been listening to your comments and as such have begun the process of re-evaluating how such additional game content is delivered in the future. As this process has only just commenced in the past month or so, there will be some titles, where development began some time ago and that are scheduled for release in the coming months, for which we are unable to make changes to the way some of their post release content is delivered.
In other words, upcoming titles like Dragon's Dogma, out May 22, can't be changed. It's too late to remove that game's on-disc DLC. But Capcom might approach its projects differently in the future. Or so they say.
