Streetfighter X Tekken Trash Talk: Jun Kazama to Return, Release Date Revision?

Gamespot just posted a cool video interview with Yoshinori Ono and Katsuhiro Harada from Gamescom (Ono’s still in his Chun-li getup). As far as the development of the Crossover Fighters, exact details are scarce but the two devs do talk about how their teams are going about making the upcoming fighters, such as listening to fan feedback and suggestions.

It’s really fun to see these two producers from two high profile games spar and interact onscreen via their body language- you can tell they’re very comfortable with each other and are good friends… perhaps the one reason how this whole thing was made possible in the first place.

Anyway, there were two significant things I got from the interview. One, apparently Ono has fixated on the still-MIA Jun Kazama (apparently simply because Harada ‘wants her out of Tekken’) and has stated that he will include her in his game- a point up for Jun loyalists (I’m an Asuka fan, so whatever). Since these Crossovers are non-canon, anything and anyone goes, I guess. Still, I wouldn’t break out any champagne until I see character models and artworks.

The other significant point is the release date- Ono said that his early prognosis of a release after 2 years earned him a scolding from Capcom boss Keiji Inafune, so he and his team will try to get the game out sooner than that. Good to hear. Really, dudes… I mean, we all waited for Tekken 6 for at least that long, but in that case we had the arcade version to tide us over. Let’s hope these much-awaited titles arrive a LOT sooner rather than later.

Check out the whole video interview here.

  1. actually it will be good for jun to return, no one really know what happen to jun except that she was attack by ogre. jin kazama presume jun to dead because her body was never found.. and SFxT and TxSF has not been confirm to be non canon to the tekken story or the street fighter story, we’ll have to wait and see what the creators confirm about the SFxT & TxSF game events to the original stories..

  2. Jun is awesome character I’m happy about all this, however I do hope Asuka makes it too. Hopefully both sets of fans will get what they want 😉

  3. Yes, the problem described in a post exists for a long time already. But who will solve it?
