The artistic focus of the Street Fighter x Tekken trailer seems to me to be all about mature, intense, and inspirational images. I suspect this is an attempt to push away from the bright colours and simplist beat’em up game play that Street Fighter was born into.
This trailer really does seem to be all about Street Fighter too. Just look at the characters they’ve selected for this.
That makes sense when we remember that Namco are working on a seperate Tekken x Street Fighter game. It’ll be interesting to see what sort of style they’ve gone for there.
It’s also worth noting the appearance of Megaman at the end of the trailer. Perhaps more evidence that CapCom is ramping up the Megaman universe franchise. Face it; in today’s world of big budget comic book movies a Megaman film seems more likely than a pac-man one!
