Tekken honcho Katsuhiro Harada has not forgotten about Tekken X Street Fighter. Chatting with Eurogamer.net, the developer revealed that while the game is not currently in full production, it is being designed with current consoles in mind.

He said:

There are still a large number of players out there with a PlayStation 3 who are looking forward to the game. So we feel it’s probably more relevant to get the title out to them on the current hardware.

Next generation hardware is likely to be announced next year. As such, Harada continued that nothing is set in stone: “We’re not completely sure, but that’s the direction at this moment.”

After the backlash that Street Fighter X Tekken faced earlier in the year, we had worried that Namco Bandai wouldn’t get to finish its own crossover brawler. Thankfully it sounds like the game is still very much on the cards – but it’s probably going to be a while before we actually get to play it.
