The real question: do we still want it to be. :P

Would an acceptable answer to the question of 'Do we still want it to be?' be an enthusiastic shoulder shrug and a meh sound? I think that would be about right.

Am I the only one who's excited about this? That's depressing...

I found it noteworthy that the comments this time were so focused on timing. Previously when questions about the game were raised they were usually answered by talking about design and implementation. Now maybe they're at the point where the conceptual stuff has been totally figured out.

Hey, at least you're not alone! I'm excited too. :)

Actually, I'm more interested to just see what it's going to be like. It was pretty easy to guess what putting Tekken characters into Street Fighter would work like given that Capcom's 2D fighters have always had projectile-less fighters and chain combos were fairly common too. SF characters in Tekken, however? That's something that really gets me thinking as it would mean a total fundamental shift for either the Tekken game engine or the way the SF characters operate.

It's almost as if Namco completely forgot how to omit the Z-axis.

It'll be interesting to see how they balance out the street fighters in a tekken environment alone, hurricane kicks and hadokens in a tekken seems overpowering. Maybe they'll give it a slow charge like devil Jin's eye beam.

I'd love to see Ryu do a 10hit combo though and I always wanted to play street fighter with tekken mechanics.

There's a sequel in the make despite the game itself was bombed?

Yea, I remember this being made together streetfighterXtekken. It was a joint production from what I remember. Well, somewhat.
