Street Fighter X Tekken
Whether you are a fan of console fighting games or prefer the feel of the arcade, you have undoubtedly heard of the Street Fighter and Tekken franchises. With roots dating back as far as the Super Nintendo and the original PlayStation consoles, these franchises have been entertaining fans of the genre and pushing the boundaries of fighting games for over a decade. With the recent announcement of Street Fighter X Tekken, these two franchises are colliding in an all-out battle for supremacy. With a release on the PS Vita, you can expect more innovation and exciting action that ever before.[DEAL_OF_THE_DAY]
The production team of Street Fighter X Tekken has been hard at working making sure that the Cross Play features of the game work flawlessly. This means you can start a game on the PlayStation 3 and transfer controls to the PS Vita to take your game with you. When you get back to your PS3, simply transfer controls again and pick up where you left off on the Vita.
These features are part of what makes the PS Vita blur the lines between console and handheld gaming. To help provide a seamless experience, the makers of Street Fighter X Tekken are working with Sony to allow all downloadable content purchased for the PS Vita or PS3 versions of the game to be accessible on both devices. This means you can enjoy any levels, characters or expansions you have purchased on both devices with one simple purchase.
Harnessing the Power of the PS Vita
A variety of control options are available for the PS Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken. Fighting purists will be glad to know that traditional controls are available using the directional pad and buttons. However, the touch screens add a level of customization to your gaming experience. By using the front and rear touch screens to input commands or start powerful team attacks and combos, you can dominate the playing field and annihilate your foes. These features were added to create a more fluid and intuitive control system using the strengths of the PS Vita. Varying control modes will make it easy to beginners to enjoy the action while allowing experienced players to duplicate the intricacies and tactics of tournament level play.
A recently announced addition to the line-up for the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game have fans of the series anxiously waiting to get their hands on a copy. Cole McGrath, of Infamous, will be bringing his special brand of electrical wrath to these versions of Street Fighter X Tekken. He is added to an all-star line-up of well-known characters, including Ryu, Guile, Kazuya, Chun Li and Nina Williams.
