Tekken X Road Fighter is “more durable to justify releasing” whereas Tekken 7 is having fun with success as a service sport, says collection lead Katsuhiro Harada.
Speaking to VGC, Harada, who first introduced Tekken X Road Fighter again in 2010, mentioned that “Tekken 7 could be very profitable as a service sport with its DLC. That makes it a lot more durable to justify releasing one other sport, whereas Tekken 7 remains to be doing so properly.”
“I used to be enthusiastic about [Tekken X Street Fighter] and I’ve ardour for it, however my logical and enterprise pondering has me questioning if I actually ought to do it,” Harada mentioned. With Bandai Namco having simply launched a ninth DLC pack for Tekken 7, it’s simple to see this battle in pondering.
Tekken X Road Fighter is the second half of a collaboration between Bandai Namco and Capcom, through which the 3D Tekken preventing system is used to play duels between Tekken and Road Fighter characters. In 2012 Capcom launched its facet of the collaboration, Road Fighter X Tekken, which is a 2D fighter that includes characters from each builders’ video games.
In 2016 Harada claimed that Tekken X Road Fighter was on maintain. On the time, the sport was round 30% full.
With these sort of feedback, it appears unlikely that Tekken X Road Fighter will arrive any time quickly, if in any respect. If it by no means sees the sunshine of day, no less than the collaboration may have given us Road Fighter X Tekken, which we gave a 9.zero in our assessment.
