At Sony’s E3 media briefing, Street Fighter X Tekken producer, Yoshinori Ono, hopped up on stage to announce that Capcom are developing a version of the game for the upcoming PlayStation Vita.

 

In a collaboration with Infamous developer, Sucker Punch, Capcom will include Infamous protagonist, Cole MacGrath, as a playable character in the game. Cole will also be present in the PlayStation 3 version of Street Fight X Tekken.

    Cole is a hybrid of Blanka and Cody.

    Cole is so cool, such an awesome addition!

  • YsyDoesIt

    It’s an odd addition. The audience reaction sounded baffled, too; they had to be reminded to applaud somewhat.

      My reaction exactly. And I’m liking it. As odd as it is (But then again, considering Blanka…)

  • KotaroInugami

    This addition makes about as much sense as Lars added in Naruto Ninja Storm 2

    • KotaroInugami

      But at least Kratos didn’t stick his ass into this game… I mean he already jumped into Soul Calibar and Mortal Kombat… He’s a whore >.>

  • SlashZaku

    Hey, at least it’s not Kratos.  Amirite guys?

      could be worse, could be a Spartan for the 360 version

  • Kris

    Cole got beefed up for this…
    Still, I’m stupidly excited because I love me some InFamous.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      Are you going to do the inFamous 2 playtest?

      • Kris

        If it happens, it’ll be me!

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    So many Sony characters are showing up in fighting games these days, Sony should just get it over with and get Sony Santa Monica to make a PS3/PSVita fighting game.

  • z_merquise

    Now that’s an infamous guest character.

    (note: haven’t played Infamous yet as it was still on queue in my download list for my PS3)

      Nice one!

  • Guest

    Horrible. Would have liked to see more SF Alpha characters.

  • DemonicX

    Great, now Cole looks like he’s on steroids..

    • Zal_Yagun

      Doesn’t all returning characters for anySF4 and included Tekken look like they were juicing it up?

  • Guest

    Shoulda used E3 2010 Cole

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      The Nathan Drake Cole?!?

      • Guest

        Yeah. Switch things up.

  • heartless141

    Yeah electric wind fist alright.

  • PrinceHeir

    as long as it’s only PS Vita not on consoles it would be fine by me.

    give me some Juri, Alpha Characters please :P

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      It’s for both Vita and PS3.

  • IceRomancer

    Cool! never played infamous but hopefully he’s fun to play :)

  • hadjimurad

    face looks too realistic compared to ryu’s.

  • ffboi7

    hmmmmm I’m still a bit effy about Cole being in this game…….. he just doesn’t seem to fit at all lol

    And now, SFxT is more uninteresting then before.

    I don’t blame Capcom – putting Cole or whatever into the game will sure lure more casuals into buying the game. Either way, the title itself makes me drowzy: SF2 roster; Abel and throw-away scrub characters from Tekken.

    Zzz.

    The only saving grace from this is the fat guy enemy from Scenario Campaign doing a cameo at the background.

  • KyoyaHibari

    I can’t believe this was the ONE part of the conference I missed DAMMIT MOM! SO GOOD! 

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Cole makes me want the game!

      • KyoyaHibari

        That’s what I’m saying sort of lol, I mean the euphoria of cameos always gets me excited whenever I see someone I can remember out of a different media source and make reference to it, I was just mad because my mom called me up to bed because I was sick and I had almost finished the conference and I missed this moment, I’m more into the actual game itself not the cameo considering I love Tekken and SF, but Cole making an appearance as a playable character made me ecstatic for it all the more! 

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/HAEBCODVH3BGFIHE47BKNDXD2I Jonathan

    not my first choice, but he definitely fits more than Kratos, or the Spartan. . . or Darth Vadar and Yoda. . .

    ok, guest characters suck, mostly. But at least Link kinda fit. . .
