Xbox 360 Version of Street Fighter X Tekken Could Have Had Master Chief or Marcus Fenix as Playable Fighters

It’s always odd when I see a guest character from another franchise in a fighting game. It’s been done many times in the past, with Soul Calibur II having console exclusive characters like Link, Spawn and Heihachi; Dead or Alive 4 getting a Halo-inspired character named Nicole-458; Soul Calibur V having Master Assassin Ezio Auditore; Mortal Kombat having Kratos; and the list goes on.

It was originally announced that the PS VITA (and later PlayStaton 3) version of Street Fighter X Tekken would add Cole MacGrath from Infamous and two of Sony’s mascots, Kuro and Toro, as exclusive characters only on PS3 and VITA, and Microsoft fans were left wondering if they could expect a similar surprise.

The news broke out today that Microsoft would not be getting any exclusives, coming from the mouth of producer Yoshinori Ono himself.

He stated, “We do have the exclusive characters for the Sony platform. We have Cole, the two Sony cats, Kuro and Toro. But basically for the Xbox 360, we were in discussions with them (Microsoft) for which character to put in as an exclusive, but we weren’t able to decide on a character because of differences in timing and things like that. So unfortunately for Street Fighter X Tekken, only the PlayStation family will be getting the exclusive characters, but it’s something we wish could have happened. It’s just too bad, basically.”

“In terms of characters we wish we could have put in the game, Master Chief or Marcus Fenix from Gears of War would have been really cool, but it was just really difficult,.” You could only imagine how Master Chief or Marcus Fenix would have played, and this would of helped increased sales for the Xbox 360 version.

Sorry Microsoft fans, it would of been one crazy game.
