Gamespot reports that Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has gone public in saying that the terribly delayed project Tekken x Street Fighter isn’t shelved but is still in development.
According to an interview he did with Famitsu and as translated by Siliconera, Harada says “The fact of the matter is that we’re at a pretty far stage into its development,”
Harada also adds that the character lineup had been completed a long time ago, particularly around the time Capcom released Street Fighter x Tekken. In fact the game is so deep into development now that they are already working on the character movements as well as tweaking the fighting system.
Aside from overseeing Tekken x Street Fighter Harada is also responsible for launching other games including Tekke 7 and Pokken Tournament. The producer said that Bandai Namco is still thinking about when to release the fighter, since both Street Fighter and Tekken are moving into new eras – Street Fighter 5 and Tekken 7 respectively.
The game’s counterpart, Capcom’s Street Fighter x Tekken, launched in March 2012.
