Hello again, everyone. My name is Syd, and welcome to Episode 2 of...
Tekken x Street Fighter Breakdown!
Episode 2: What Should Gameplay be Like?
Still not much to really breakdown, but there is still much to discuss about the upcoming game. And as you guessed from the title, we will discuss gameplay but there is MORE to it then just the gameplay. We're going to discuss what kinds of things we want exploited, and I'll explain what I mean by that in a little bit. But anyway, onto the first topic. For the most part, Namco has got the gameplay planned out. It's going to be a 3D style fighting game, but, as is the case for most other things regarding this project, no gameplay footage has been released as of yet. So it kind of makes me wonder what they're planning out exactly. Will it be like in Street Fighter x Tekken where they have a Tekken Tag like gameplay where one fighter gets K.O'd and that's it, or will it be kind of like the vs Capcom series where you have to K.O all the people, or will it just be a one on one kind of deal? The whole thing is a mystery right now. One thing is for sure though, it's gonna be hard to top the gameplay Capcom brought to the table. For me, at least. I guess if they went with gameplay that's COMPLETELY Tekken based, a lot of people who were complaining about Street Fighter x Tekken's gameplay not being like Street Fighter IV would be happy.
And on the other subject, what the game should focus around. Like, in Street Fighter x Tekken, they focused around Pandora and the Pandora mode system. But what are they going to focus on in THIS game? I mean, from the looks of the promotional image, it looks as if they're gonna focus around the Devil Gene and the Satsui no Hadou and the clash between the two evil powers, and I REALLY hope that is the case because I always found that kind of stuff interesting. I mean, not that I disliked the Pandora system, but I just kind of felt disappointed that Jin and Ryu's dark struggles weren't looked at. But oh well, the Pandora system was pretty cool. Especially how people looked in Pandora mode. That evil purplish look. I'm tempted to try that with my OC's. But I digress.
And now we come to the question I ask you, the reader. Well, questions.
1: What are YOU hoping the gameplay will be like? What system mechanics do you want to see? Any hyper-combos, a return of the gem system or Pandora, etc.
2: What do YOU want the game to focus on? And I'm not just talking about main plot here, I mean what areas would YOU like to see explored? like would you want to see a Devil Gene vs Satsui no Hadou, or a rivalry like Juri vs Hwoarang, or AGAIN the return of the Pandora system?
Please let me know in the comments below, because this type of stuff is interesting to me and I really wanna know what others think. But until next time, thank you very much for reading. This has been Syd, and I'll catch you later!
