'Street Fighter X Tekken' introduces Pandora power
Thursday 15 September 2011
Drawing from other fighting games in the Capcom stable,
Street Fighter X Tekken's Pandora ability allows tag teams to exchange health for power, though not without risk.
The Pandora trailer also introduces several new characters - Rolento ( Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha 2), Heihachi ( Tekken series) and Lili ( Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection).
There is also a look at the new two-on-two battle mode, Scramble, as well as its counterpart, Briefing, that allows two players to work on their moves together.
Street Fighter X Tekken is a crossover in the vein of Capcom's previous Marvel vs Capcom and Tatsunoko vs Capcom games.
Namco, creator of the Tekken franchise, previously joined forces with the Street Fighter moguls for Namco x Capcom (2005) on the PlayStation 2.
Nintendo's Super Smash Bros also incorporates characters from other franchises, such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Metal Gear Solid, while Kingdom Hearts is a collaboration between Disney and the Final Fantasy series.
Street Fighter X Tekken is due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2012, with a PlayStation Vita version recently announced.
