Street Fighter X Tekken to première at GamesCom

The 'competition' begins in Cologne

Street Fighter X Tekken, two games released simultaneously set in both Street Fighter and Tekken universes, will get their European première at GamesCom.

Update: Capcom's just told us that the game itself won't be there but the two producers will be. Sounds like there'll be lots of info at least and we'll be on the ground to scoop it up.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada said via Twitter:

"INVITATION! Ono & I will be at GamesCom so I hope everyone will come out & see us! You might see something(!) cool"


By something cool he means Street Fighter X Tekken.

The European unveiling will take place on the Thursday afternoon at 2pm at Konrad-Adenauer-Saal in the Koelnmesse. Have a read of the invitation itself, soak up the hype and buy a plane ticket.

If you're wondering why these two rivals are forming a collaboration, well, they're not. In fact both Harada and Ono have described Street Fighter X Tekken and its sister title as more of a 'competition'.
