Capcom confirms Xbox 360, PS3 launch date; PC version now in development; Special Edition contents revealed.
Capcom had a big presence at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, using the event to announce Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and new characters for Street Fighter X Tekken. This weekend's New York Comic-Con appears to be no different, as the publisher announced today as part of a session that Street Figther X Tekken will be available in the US on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 6 and in Europe on March 9.
That's not all, though. As part of the NYCC session, producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed that work has just begun on a PC edition of Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom did not offer a launch date for the PC and PlayStation Vita edition of Street Fighter X Tekken.
Additionally, Ono offered first word on the Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition for North America. The premium package includes the game, as well as a "build-it-yourself" arcade cabinet bank (measuring 5" in height) and a prequel comic Book from UDON. The Special Edition also includes 36 "gems," which are a gameplay mechanic announced today that modify characters' abilities and stats.
Capcom did not announce a price for the Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition and had not responded to a request for comment as of press time. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
