Capcom has announced that they are working on yet another crossover fighting game; however, this time the choice of the other candidate is rather curious. Yoshinori Ono— who is working as the producer on the project— stated that the idea for this game originated with the intention of “making history”. He went on to elaborate that the history that is being made here is that the game's characters will be rivals not only in the game world, but apparently also in the business world.
Ono sullied all hopes of a joint development between Capcom and Namco Bandai when his statement in the official announcement trails with a rather menacing declaration of a “...decisive battle for Capcom and Namco Bandai Games”. The announcement is not very clear about the nature of the deal between the two companies. Judging from the press release however, it appears that it could to be a Capcom game with licensed Tekken characters.
Business aside, the game's main design structure is going to be carried over from Street Fighter IV. It will feature 3D character models and stages, while restricting combat to just two dimensions. The press release mentioned enhancements to Versus and Training modes, along with the introduction of Tag-Team mode.
So far, it looks like this is essentially going to be Street Fighter IV with characters from Tekken —not necessarily a bad things, just a little underwhelming.
