Bandai Namco Confirms Work Continuing on Tekken X Street Fighter with 40 Hired

Despite announcing the title ahead of successfully releasing Street Fighter X Tekken, Bandai Namco's own Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada has confirmed that work continues on Tekken X Street Fighter.

With Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom's development team offered up an obvious method of demonstrating both casts while balancing towards its strong team-fighting gameplay. I'm dying to know how Tekken X Street Fighter would do the same for the Tekken brand. Harada offered Polygon a few details:

It's very difficult to talk about. Obviously, I had originally planned to release it much earlier than we're currently looking at. Tekken 7 will be our big thing for the next while [and] people have been talking about the game for such a long time that they aren't going to be surprised if you just release it normally.... we do plan to have some kind of surprise.

Harada had a lengthy conversation with Polygon's Matt Leone so for more information on the famed fighting game developer's work at Bandai Namco, click here to read the full article. Tekken 7 will feature at EVO 2015 and we've even had a look at a brand new fighter, but be sure to click the game title for all of our coverage and video.
