Let’s get one thing straight; Street Fighter x Tekken had a lot of issues and the fighting community hated it as much as you can possibly think. Capcom, though, is willing to tweak it, polish it, and rebalance it for all those fighters out there. Thus, Street Fighter x Tekken Version 2013 came to fruition.
This new version of SFxT will be made available to all owners of the game via a free update and is slatted for a mid-December release. Naturally, the PC version will be delayed for a couple of months, so don’t hold your breath you PC fighters.
In SFxT version 2013, normal throws will be faster, with a 5F start-up over the 7F start-up in previous versions. Tekken characters have improved anti-air techniques and recoverable health regenerates at a slower rate. This will obviously reduce the number of timeouts. Furthermore, the cinematic camera- during Boost Combos – has been changed and promises to give battles a more speedy feel.
In addition, recoverable healthy has more distinct color, the visual effect while Gems are active has been changed and the “FIGHT” message at the beginning of the round disappears from the screen faster.
As you may have guessed, some characters will be slightly tweaked and rebalanced, just like Capcom did with the Arcade Edition of SSF4.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
