Harada Talks Hadoken And Tekken Hybrid

August 3, 2011

The US PlayStation blog posted an interview with Katsuhiro Harada. The Tekken director was asked about the upcoming Namco Bandai titles, including Tekken X Street Fighter and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. When it comes to SF characters’ fireballs in the crossover, he said: “When we bring fireballs into Tekken X Street Fighter, there are two different ways we could go. It could be used as something similar to keep your opponent in the place you want, or it could be some kind of a special move or powered-up version of their techniques. We’ve not decided on what route we want to take with this yet”. Check the source for more details.
