Systems will come and go, exclusives are what can make brake a game for console makers. While not a big deal for many, fans of the fighting game will displeased to know that these two characters will never be making it to their console. Despite files with the characters on them in the game already, the game’s producer Tomoyaki Ayano had this to say about the issue.
“Every game has data on it that is unused. In this case, Street Fighter X Tekken for the Xbox 360 did have the Mega Man and Pac-Man data on it. But, we never intended to release these characters on the 360. They are PS3 exclusives and that was our intention from the very beginning. The are not going to be timed exclusives either, they’re PS3 exclusives.”
Pac-Man and Mega will also be in the vita version of the game coming out soon. So the consenus is that if you want to play as Mr. Wakka-Wakk and the Blue Bomber you better get a Vita or a PS3, which ever is cheaper.
