Capcom Explains Why Xbox 360 Street Fighter X Tekken Has No 2 Player Co-op Online Mode

Capcom finally comes clean about the lack of pair-play for the Xbox 360, admitting that they ran out of time and resources to include the feature upon Street Fighter X Tekken's release.

Capcom has announced on its official blog an update on Street Fighter X Tekken. More specifically, they give us the reason why 2 player co-op online is not available on the Xbox 360 version of the game.

The main reason given was due to time and resource issues. Capcom worked on the PS3 version much earlier which is why the feature was seen on that version only. Below is a full explanation.

Here’s what was posted:
Hello Street Fighter X Tekken players, this is Ayano again.

First of all, we want to thank our fans for all of the support and positive comments we’ve received since Street Fighter X Tekken was released last week. We are extremely proud of the game… it was a huge undertaking for us all and it makes us happy to know that so many players are enjoying our game.

Secondly, we’ve been asked by some players of the Xbox 360 version about the 4-player co-op mode and why it doesn’t work when two players team up (locally) and attempt to play online. Unfortunately, due to time and resource issues, we weren’t able to get that feature into the Xbox 360 version and we apologize to those players who were looking forward to it. Throughout the development process, there are times when new features are added (and we added a lot of them!) and there are also times where we have to make tough decisions regarding things to cut. This was one of those times. This mode is supported in the PlayStation 3 version, however, since we tackled that earlier and found the architecture of their system to be more conducive to implementing it. This is the most content we’ve ever packed into a Street Fighter game, so we hope that there are plenty of other modes and features to keep everyone busy for a long time.

With that said, we have some information regarding new updates for Street Fighter X Tekken coming up soon, so we’ll keep you posted!

That’s it for now. Thank you again for your continued support… keep enjoying the game and providing us with feedback.

See you all again in my next blog!
