Getting into the tangle of Capcom news today, a collection of trailers for Street Fighter x Tekken Vita have made their way onto the Internet. The first of the three new trailers shows off six of the 12 new fighters that are to be added to the cast.
We also learn that the game will support cross-platform play with the PS3, and fans who own both versions will get the new characters for free, instead of paying for the previously announced DLC pack. Unfortunately, Xbox 360 fans will have to purchase the $20 set.
In addition to the announcement trailer, there are also two additional movies showing off tag teams being added to the game. The first in the set shows us two of the new teams, along with their unique introductions. The demonstrated teams are Sakura and Blanka, along with Dudley and Elena.
The next video in the lineup showcases the Christie and Lei team. Their unique introduction makes us curious about what's up with Eddy, who Christie is looking for.
Along with the trailers, a Street Fighter x Tekken episode has been added. Regrettably the eight-minute vignette lacks English subtitles, but it shows story material related to the added characters and what we can expect next in the game's story. Kind of; honestly, we're can only guess at this point. What we can gather from the vignette is this:
- Sakura and Blanka team up in search of Dan.
- Lei and Christie are looking for Eddy.
- Alissa and Lars are on the derelict ship, and end up fighting the guy in the episode's first segment.
What this all adds up to, we don't know. Some English subtitles would be nice.
Capcom also released new screenshots featuring the new cast members and the Vita visuals. Sadly, the lineup of trailers doesn't bring a confirmed date for the port, but Capcom insists on a Fall 2012 release.
