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.
