Street Fighter Producer Discusses Plans for Connectivity Between the PS3 and Vita

In a recent interview with Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono, plans for connectivity between the Vita and PS3 in the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken were discussed. According to Ono, the developer is working hard to take advantage of all the Vita’s functionality to provide the best possible experience for their audience.

Ono-san explained:

First of all, it’s always fun to work on new hardware and try new things….We’re doing a lot of customization and tweaking to make sure it’s as good as possible on PS Vita. The really cool thing about PS Vita, of course, is the wealth of new features: Wifi, 3G, GPS, the gyroscope, and touch panels on both sides. There are all sorts of cool things that we can do with those. We want to take advantage of that and really encourage people to get out into the world with their PS Vita and play Street Fighter X Tekken.

He then went on to tell the PlayStation.Blog about his team’s plans to implement connectivity between their two platforms.

And we’re looking at ways to link to the PS3 version as well to get you into the habit of leading a double-life of Street Fighter X Tekken. When you’re out of the house, you play it on PS Vita and then you come home, turn on your PS3 and keep going.

The fact that so many developers are really embracing the technology this early in the game speaks volumes to the promising future of Sony’s upcoming handheld.
