Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Get the facts on Street Fighter x Tekken

Looking for more of a rumble on your Vita? Capcom seems to have things covered with the handheld iteration of the console game, with all the bugs hopefully wrinkled out. The company has just put up a features list with all the details.

  • 55Playable Characters – In addition to the core roster of 38 characters from the console version and the 5 exclusive characters from the PS3 version, the PS Vita version will arrive with a free download code for the 12 new playable characters: Blanka, Cody, Dudley, Elena, Guy and Sakura from the Street Fighter side, and Alisa Bosconovitch, Bryan Fury, Christie Monteiro, Jack-X, Lars Alexandersson and Lei Wulong from the Tekken side. 
  • Cross-Platform Play – Portable gaming has reached a new level. Cross-Platform Play allows PS Vita players of Street Fighter X Tekken to compete against PS3 players. 
  • Multiplayer Mayhem – Pick your battles and compete against others locally, online through Wi-Fi networks, or through the PS Vita’s 3G connection. 


Vita Exclusive Features:
  •  Augmented Reality: Pose and take pictures of your favorite characters, and then place them in real life photos. 
  •  Front and Rear Touch Panels: Create the size and positioning of extra buttons on the front and rear touch panels, and customize these with different moves. Also, menus now work with the touch screen.  Near: Customize the costumes of your characters, and share them with other Vita owners that pass by. Collect other players’ custom costumes. 
  • KO Monument: Collect trophies from the players you beat and build the ultimate KO monument. 
  • Ad-Hoc Fight Request: Turn this mode on to automatically challenge other Vita owners in your area. Share replays after the battle. 
  • Gallery Mode: Collect different sounds and movies from the game, and play them in the gallery. 
  • And… 38 Free Alternate Costumes! In addition to receiving the 12 new characters for free, PS Vita players can also redeem (via the same download code) free alternate costumes for the core roster of 38 characters 
  • PS Vita and PS3 Data Sharing – All DLC purchased on the PS3 version can be used on the PS Vita version, and vice versa. Additionally, edited and customized data on the PS Vita version can be transferred between both the PS3 version and PS Vita version as well.
