Six New Fighters Join Street Fighter X Tekken

Posted on January 17, 2012 AT 12:38pm

THE BUZZ: Today, Capcom has released screenshots and artwork for Street Fighter X Tekken‘s six latest additions.

EGM’s TAKE: Here’s the six new faces that’ll be joining the fight:

Street Fighter: Juri, Balrog, Vega
Tekken: Paul, Law, Ling Xiaoyu

I’ll be honest—I’m a little disappointed by the announcements. The problem is, there’s a set amount of fan favorites that need to show up—that’s fine, and I understand that. At the same time, instead of having characters like Balrog or Vega show up yet again, I’d love to see some other under-loved Street Fighters show up. How about Karin? Or Birdie? Or Elena?

We’ve seen the entire Street Fighter II cast over and over again—let’s bring back more Street Fighter Alpha or Street Fighter III combatants!
