Street Fighter has light, medium, and heavy attacks assigned to buttons. Tekken uses a different control scheme where each button corresponds to an arm or a leg. How is Tekken X Street Fighter going to play?
"Street Fighter X Tekken was developed using four buttons and it plays similar to Street Fighter," said Katsuhiro Harada, producer during an interview with Siliconera. "For Tekken X Street Fighter, I want to keep it where players use left punch and right punch. Maybe we will have an alternate control system where the four buttons will have different functions, but we won’t add more buttons to the game."
Harada-san also talked about what Ryu from Street Fighter would be like in Tekken X Street Fighter. He’ll have projectiles plus new close range attacks to make him fit into the Tekken ring.
Stay tuned because Siliconera has more Tekken coverage coming in the near future.
