Crossovers are the things of nerd fantasy, but they’re almost always complicated. Pleasing fans of both properties, whether it’s comics, games, or whatever else is just one element.
Tekken X Street Fighter, the Bandai Namco side of the equation started by Capcom back in 2012 with Street Fighter X Tekken is the victim of one of those elements – timing.
The game’s been in development for what seems like forever, and now the game has been put on hold officially.
Director Katsuhiro Harada explains in an interview with GameSpot: “A good window in which to release Tekken X Street Fighter is something that’s become difficult recently. So it’s on hold for the moment.”
What Harada is talking about is the fact that Street Fighter V just hit, and Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is scheduled to hit sometime this year as well.
“When we develop fighting games, we try to keep the core community in mind as well as the wider audience that wants to play these games,” Harada says. Splitting the communities of both of those games with another one could harm both games.
The game isn’t cancelled… yet. In 2013, Harada said in a Famitsu interview that the character lineup had been decided, and that the team had “already finished the polygon models, moves, and systems.”
Whether the game’s coming at all is in doubt at this point. While no game is a simple undertaking, it’s hard to imagine Namco Bandai dumping money into a project for so long without any updates.
