Street Fighter X Tekken Gameplay, Story Trailers Will Rearrange Your Face

May 13, 2011 Written by Heath Hindman

As we move closer to seeing Capcom’s most famous fighting series take on its Namco Bandai counterpart, some new trailers have been let loose.

This first one mostly features CG video clips of the characters romping around, busting each other up, and speaking Japanese with English subtitles (at least in the beginning). No gameplay shown just yet. While it’s not specifically known what will happen in the story of this game (as if people play fighters for their stories, but anyway), this one seems to paint the Tekken characters as the “bad guys.”

The best part is clearly when they get punched in the face, and their faces crack and explode, only to reveal another face underneath it, which looks exactly the same. God bless video games.

This one’s much longer and features real gameplay, starting with a match between Ryu and Kazuya, a rivalry also promoted in lots of screens and the above trailer. Here’s the gameplay:

Capcom also recently let out a much shorter clip focused on popular Street Fighter character Cammy, which PSLS reported on here.

Street Fighter X Tekken does not yet have an exact release date, but Capcom seems to be aiming for a release in late 2011. We’ll see if things actually pan out that way. Check back for more.
