Street Fighter X Tekken Vita Version Features New Characters, Cross-Console Play With PS3

We've got new trailers for the PS Vita edition of Street Fighter x Tekken. Capcom promises 55 characters in the Vita version: the 43 available in the console game as well as six more from each side. Blanka, Cody, Dudly, Elena, Guy and Sakura round out the Street Fighter crew, and Alisa, Bryan, Christie, Jack, Lars and Lei come in from team Tekken.

Much to-do was made over the 12 characters exclusive to the Vita version of the game, as they shipped as locked content on the PS3 disc. This fall, players who own the PS3 version who buy the PS Vita edition will see their additional characters unlock. Additionally, all future DLC purchased on one platform will cross over to the other. According to Capcom, "All DLC purchased on the PS3 version can be used on the PS Vita version, and vice versa. Additionally, edited and customised data on the PS Vita version can be transferred to the PS3 version via a save data link."

Continuing the cross-compatibility theme, players who own either the PS3 or the PS Vita editions of the game will be able to compete cross-platform with each other, via the PlayStation Network. The Vita edition also promises to add touch controls to both menu and game screens.

As yet, Capcom has not provided an official release date for Street Fighter x Tekken Vita, saying only "fall 2012."


    Keep Cross-play comin'... This stuff is awesome. If CoD: Vita allows players to duke' it out with PS3 players, the handhelds will fly off shelves...

    My god am I stoked

    I simply will not buy this game until Elena is available on the PS3.
