It has been five years since the crossover game “Tekken X Street Fighter” was announcedBANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s take on the crossover series of two of the biggest fighting games franchise. Some people may have thought that the project had been abandoned. However, such is not the case, as the game is still on and is currently under development.
In a recent interview with French website Gameblog as translated by Shoryuken, senior game designer Michael Murray revealed that while they are indeed silent about the project progress, “Tekken X Street Fighter” is actually under development. However, they are just focusing on other games at the moment.
“[Tekken x Street Fighter] is still in development,” Murray told Gameblog. “It’s difficult at the moment to find a period to launch the game since ‘Tekken 7’ was released. For the moment, we are focusing on ‘Tekken 7.'”
The interview also tried to get information from Murray regarding which platforms the game will be released on, now that newer versions of gaming consoles are available since the game’s release plan was first announced. While Murray’s answer were evasive, he did say that the game’s development is based on PC, which could hint that it might come to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
The conflict Murray talked about mirrors the previous statement by BANDAI NAMCO’s “Tekken” series producer Katsuhiro Harada, saying that “Tekken 7” and “Street Fighter V” have conflicting releases.
“It might seem like we haven’t started on it at all,” Harada said, “but the character line-up has been decided upon since a very long time ago, and we’ve already finished the polygon models, moves, and systems.”
