A little more of the lineup for Street Fighter X Tekken has been revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, with four new duellists confirmed for Capcom's cross-over fighter. Dhalsim and Poison join the Capcom side of the rumble, while Steve Fox and Yoshimitsu step up for Tekken.
Rubberman Dhalsim is a mainstay of the Street Fighter series, but Poison's more of a background character. Originally from the Final Fight games, she broke into Street Fighter as the manager of the André the Giant-inspired Hugo in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact. Yoshimitsu's also a veteran on his home turf, having appeared in every Tekken game, while Steve was introduced in Tekken 4.
Slated to launch in 2012, Street Fighter X Tekken is headed to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The Sony console editions will have an exclusive character, Cole MacGrath from the inFamous series.
Development on Namco Bandai's own cross-over, Tekken X Street Fighter, is "at zero percent," producer Katsuhiro Harada recently said, adding that it's at "about five percent in my head."
