Tekken X Street Fighter not cancelled, just on hold


Tekken X Street Fighter is not cancelled, just on hold, Tekken Director Katsuhiro Harada has declared.

The director was featured on a recent episode of Harada’s Bar, a YouTube talk show of the director's creation, Harada was subtitled saying, “yeah, development stopped but we got about 30% done.”

Harada later clarified his statement and its translation, confirming the words “stopped” and “dead” were incorrect and should have read as “paused” and “shelved”.

Harada continued:
We are still hopeful that Tekken X Street Fighter will resume development when the opportunity arises. However, such a title cannot be moved just for the convenience of one company in terms of marketing and branding, and it also affects each other’s development resources. For now, we are just waiting for the right opportunity.

Tekken X Street Fighter is Bandai Namco’s take on the iconic fighting franchises, following Capcom’s Street Fighter X Tekken in 2012.
