The news just kept flowing from Capcom‘s Captivate event yesterday. We have to share with you fine folks the latest trailer from Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom is promising 55 characters in the Vita version of the game including the 43 available in the console game as well as six more from each side. Blanka, Cody, Dudly, Elena, Guy and Sakura round out the Street Fighter crew, and Alisa, Bryan, Christie, Jack, Lars and Lei are all here from team Tekken.
The twelve extras will ship as “locked extras” on the PS3 disc, which is sure to piss off lots of people. Players who own the PS3 version who buy the PS Vita edition will gain access to those twelve characters you’ll die without. All future DLC purchased on one platform will have the ability to cross over to the other. Capcom stated, “All DLC purchased on the PS3 version can be used on the PS Vita version, and vice versa. Additionally, edited and customized data on the PS Vita version can be transferred to the PS3 version via a save data link.”
Keeping with the theme here, players will be able to actually compete with each other regardless of which console they’re playing on.
