GC10; Tekken x Street Fighter – The return of Evil Ryu?
It doesn’t appear that Capcom revealed anything new regarding Street Fighter x Tekken today. However, Harada-san did show fans what Ryu might look like in Tekken x Street Fighter, Namco’s upcoming fighting game crossover.
Kotaku has two screenshots of a prototype Ryu model made by Namco using the Tekken engine. The model is incomplete at the moment and is not an indication of the final version. Ryu isn’t even wearing his own gi, he’s borrowing Paul’s!
Don’t expect Tekken x Street Fighter to release anytime soon. Harada-san reiterated that the game will ship after Capcom’s Street Fighter x Tekken, which isn’t coming out until 2012 at the earliest. Considering that the Tekken team is also working on the next entry in the Tekken franchise, we might not see Namco’s version of the crossover for a very long time.
Check out the screens below courtesy of Kotaku:
Could this be a possible matchup in Tekken x Street Fighter? Devil Jin vs. Evil Ryu would be intense!
