Capcom Reveals Street Fighter X Tekken Box Art

Posted on Thursday, September 1 @ 11:57:39 Eastern by


Capcom has revealed the box art for Street Fighter X Tekken well in advance of its intended release date of March 2, 2012. Not surprisingly, the box features the four characters in the game's very first reveal trailer at Comic-Con 2010 to a throng of nerd-screaming fans: Ryu, Chun-Li, Kazuya, and Nina.

I've always titled my head at the choice of Kazuya and Nina as the pinned rivals against Ryu and Chun-Li, given that Jin and Ling Xiaoyu would have been the more direct comparison, but I suppose that might have been boring too. Still, I find that Kazuya would be better matched to someone like Akuma, as is Nina to someone like Crimson Viper.

But I get itKazuya and Nina are highly popularized characters in the Tekken franchise, and dare I say, Capcom wants to make Ryu and Chun-Li the "good guys", and Kazuya and Nina the "bad guys". And featuring only four characters on the cover keeps the message clear and concise that this is a tag-team crossover.

Finally and obviously, the PS3 box art looks better. With almost every box art on the planet being white, black, red, blue, and yellow, the PS3's black, red, and clear palette just fits a wider range of box arts.
