Street Fighter x Tekken Has A PS Vita Date, Releases October 23

Capcom has dropped a new trailer for Street Fighter x Tekken, along with a handful of new features for its PlayStation Vita debut. Fortunately, that cross-platform magic is also giving your wallet a breather—every bit of DLC you PlayStation 3 owners purchased previously will be transferred to the smaller PS Vita, with no extra charge.

Here’s a quick list of the PS Vita-exclusive features, touted in the new trailer at the bottom of this post:

  • Ad-hoc “Fight Request”
  • Downloadable character configurations
  • Local four-player “Scramble Battle” gameplay
  • Collectible K.O. Momuments
  • AR Photography feature

Out of all the portable additions, the augmented reality addition seems to be the most impressive of the bunch, and will surely lead to Capcom fans taking inappropriate photos with Zangief. Now that’s technology well used.

Of the 55 total characters, the 12 additional fighters will be available on consoles July 31st. If you’re heading to Comic-Con, you can take the game for a test drive in San Diego.
