Back in 2010, Bandai Namco announced Tekken X Street Fighter, but fast forward to today, the game has yet to be launched. However over the years, Bandai Namco has reassured gamers that the game hadn’t been cancelled, and last we heard which was back in 2017, apparently they felt that it wasn’t the right time to launch it.

For those wondering about the status of the game, it seems that we might be in for a long wait because according to the game’s director, Katsuhiro Harada, it seems that the game is still very much in development. According to Harada, apparently the game is only 30%, and that it is still pending, whatever that means.

Given that it has been almost nine years and the progress is at 30%, it’s safe to say that things certainly don’t look very optimistic. We’re not sure what the hold up is, but perhaps Bandai Namco is putting its resources towards other projects and franchises instead of Tekken X Street Fighter, such as Jump Force, maybe. Either way if this was a mashup that you were looking forward to, don’t hold your breath. In the meantime we suppose you could always check out Capcom’s Street Fighter X Tekken if you absolutely need to have this mashup.
