Tekken X Street Fighter will bring Street Fighter characters into the Tekken universe, thus will use Namco-style controls.

Both games will be released for the consoles Playstation 3 and XBox 360. Release dates are still unknown.

This is not the first time that the two made a partnership for a crossover game. In 2005, the video game Namco X Capcom was released for the Playstation 2 console. However, this was a tactical-action-RPG and has included characters from different game series of Capcom and Namco. It was only released in Japan.

The two games are thus the first crossover games to be released by both companies in the beat’em up genre.
