Capcom Co. this week demonstrated Street Fighter X Tekken for Sony Corp.’s Playstation Vita at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this week in Los Angeles.
The Street Fighter X Tekken PS Vita SKU includes 12 new characters, including Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy, Sakura, Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack, Lars Alexandersson and Lei Wulong.
Customers who purchase the SKU will automatically receive the characters as free DLC for the PS3 SKU.
The PS Vita version included touch-based functionality to allow users to touch one of four quadrants on the screen to initiate tap attacks. The rear touch panel can be swiped to tag an alternate character.
The graphics engine is solid at 60 frames per second. The handheld version held zero lag between PS Vita and PS3 Cross Play, but the frame rate on the handheld version lowered in certain battles. In addition, characters held less shaders than the console counterpart.
Street Fighter X Tekken will be sold Oct. 2.
