Street Fighter X Tekken On Vita Lets You Control Other Players’ Teams

By Ishaan . August 22, 2012 . 1:40pm

Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation Vita has the same feature that’s popular in other recent portable fighting games—the ability to fight AI versions of other players you’ve encountered.

 

In Street Fighter X Tekken, this feature is called “Ghost Tag”. You can fight CPU teams based on opponents (ie; actual players) you’ve encountered online. Capcom say that you can still keep the Fight Request feature turned on to hop into an actual online battle partway, should someone challenge you to a match.

 

Another feature related to Ghost Tag is called “Swap Switch”. Street Fighter X Tekken lets you customize its characters with different colour schemes. If you encounter another player online with an outfit and Gem loadout that you like, you can challenge them in Ghost Tag. If you lose to the Ghost Tag CPU, you’ll then be given a chance to control their team, complete with their costumes and Gem sets.

 

Additionally, Capcom also say that if you own Street Fighter X Tekken on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, data between the two versions will be synced between the two systems, provided you use the same PlayStation Network account. You can read about more of the Vita version’s features here.

 

Street Fighter X Tekken for PlayStation Vita will be released on October 23rd.

    same PSN account? aww….
    i really hope sony allow linking between two account for saves and stuffs like this, parent child account should be fine right?

      Will never happen. The point of cross-saves is to use data from the same account through both games. Parent and Child accounts is still very much 2 accounts.

         i think the point of cross saves is to use data between 2 versions of the same game. not between 2 accounts. even if it’s parent and child account, you can still only earn the trophy twice on each system. so i don’t see any problem with that.

          What I am saying is this. Cross Save is through Account Sync by cloud saves. Doesn’t matter if its a Parent/Child account. They are still considered 2 separate accounts. You will NEVER be able to transfer the data between accounts in that way and that is why it requires the same PSN account.

          Vita only holds 1 account anyway, so you’ll have to completely reformat the Vita memory card to use a different account. The most you’ll ever get is 1 trophy on each platform per account unless you of course the games PS3 and Vita trophies is considered one trophy set like Motorstorm RC.

            don’t have a game that use crosssave. so they are not using USB cable? =/

          • http://www.themogblog.com/ Edward Walton

            Only on Metal Gear does it use a USB cable. But the save will still be tied to an account. PS3 saves have pretty much all been tied to an account since 2009 so if its not the same account, you’re SOL unless you have an illegal jailbroken PS3.
