On January 23rd, Capcom announced that they would be doing a special reality show for their upcoming fighting game, Street Fighter X Tekken. The premise is to have gamers from all over the country submit their videos to be added to either Team Street Fighter or Team Tekken. Players would compete against each other on live-stream, and the winner would take home $25,000.
After hundreds of videos being submitted, Capcom has finally selected the teams. Team Street Fighter will consist of Dr. Sub-Zero, Sherryjenix, TS NerdJosh, Renic and TFA Hornet and will be coached by Street Fighter legend, Alex Valle. Avoiding The Puddle’s Aris will coach Team Tekken’s Tasty Steve, Kor, Superyan, 200Yen, and Bronson. Those that have watched fighting game streams will be familiar with players like TS NerdJosh who is one of better East Coast Marvel vs. Capcom 3 players and Kor who is the current Evo Tekken 6 champion. Other players are a mix from great players to average gamers. Cross Assault will start next week, February 22nd, and will have the grand finals shown during Final Round XV on March 3rd.
