Street Fighter X Tekken met with a troubled launch and a cool reception on PS3 and Xbox 360. Maybe it’ll do better … on iPhone? Capcom announced today that Street Fighter X Tekken is due for release on iOS this summer.
According to Capcom, the mobile version includes “brand new modes and a brand new take on the tag team mechanic.” So far the only confirmed characters are Ryu, Chun-Li, Kazuya, and Nina, so in its current state that “brand new take” only includes “being able to choose fewer people for your tag team.” We’re confident Capcom will announce more characters before the game’s release, and if SF4 on iOS is any indication, add more characters in free updates
Capcom is pleased to confirm that Street Fighter x Tekken Mobile will be released for iOS this summer. Based on the critically acclaimed home console release, but with a complete redesign of controls and UI with mobile devices in mind, Street Fighter x Tekken Mobile also features brand new modes and a new take on the tag team mechanic. The balanced character roster includes Ryu and Chun-Li from the Street Fighter series, and Kazuya and Nina from the Tekken series.
Street Fighter x Tekken Mobile will be compatible with iOS 5 or higher, and will be playable on iPhone 4 and 4S, iPod touch 4th Gen or later, iPad 2 and the New iPad.
