To some this concept may sound like another ploy for Capcom and Namco to print even more money for themselves. which may well be the case but who can blame them? Which actually brings me onto something that people really feel the need to complain about. Downloadable Content or DLC as it’s commonly known amongst the gaming persuasion. Whether it be a Cowboy Suit for Ken Masters or a brand new character altogether people forget that these little add-ons are in fact optional! At least a lot of the time…obviously when it comes to to rebalancing and overall gameplay tweaks if you plan on playing with your friends you’re going to have to bite the bullet and get the DLC.
The other half of fans out there have been dreaming this franchise merge for many years. Here it is after a long wait two very different styles of beat em up mechanics are being combined to form one potential god like fighting experience! Hell it can’t be any worse than Mortal Kombat 9, who recently released one of the most bizarre DLC characters ever – Freddy Kruegar. He’s certainly a profound choice but won’t be swaying me to play the game.
Both the Tekken and the Street Fighter communities are known to be hard nuts to crack though after many play tests and character announcements both parties seem to be rather fond of it. Enough of the aspects from each franchise to please each fan set. Thus far it it certainly has an interesting character roster it even looks to be growing larger with more characters being announced and rumoured.
I’ve personally always been more into 2d fighters so never truly appreciated what people get from playing Tekken. I find it all a little boring if I’m honest but this looks like it’s going to be great fun. I think it’s planned to hit shelves sometime next year and unfortunately I’m not attending any fighting game tournaments or trade shows so I’m going to have to wait all that time!
Let’s hope the rumours about Bison being announced turns out to be more than just hear say.
