During New York Comic-Con, Capcom has announced that Street Fighter X Tekken will be getting rebalanced with a free update that adds several system changes and character tweaks. It'll be landing in mid-December.

Entitled 'Version 2013', the update introduces a number of significant changes. Some are small visual adjustments, while others are more substantial changes to characters. You can take a look at the list of 'Version 2013' changes below:

System Changes

  • Standard throws are faster, and now have a 5F start-up, rather than the 7F start-up in previous versions.
  • Anti-air techniques for Tekken characters have been improved.
  • Recoverable health regenerates at a slower rater, reducing the number of timeouts.
  • Recoverable health has a more distinct color.
  • The cinematic camera during Boost Combos has been changed, giving battles a speedier feel.
  • The visual effect while Gems are active has been changed.
  • The “Fight” message at the start of each round disappears faster.

Character Changes

  • Ken: ’Shippu Jinraikyaku’ now has greater forward movement and increased damage.
  • Kazuya: ’EX Wind God Fist’ now has full invincibility from the start-up to the end of active frames.
  • M. Bison: ’Knee Press Nightmare” is now projectile-invincible.
  • Bob and Paul: Walk speed is now faster.

@14 fighting games routinely get rebalanced now for fairness' sake. Beginning of this year Namco/bandaging released a patch for Soul calibur V that made weak characters stronger, OP Characters weaker, etc. There's always a little backlash, but it's generally a good idea to fix what's broken.

It's a shame that they support this game - a game which has been rejected by most of the FGC - yet haven't provided any new content/updates for UMvC3 - a game that is the most hyped fighting game atm.

Didn't liked both UMvC3 (though I liked the 2) and SFxTekken.

But I would probably love a CVS 3 if the gameplay would stay the same.

If you're having DLC problems I feel bad for you son,I got 99 purchases for the campaign of ONE.
Yeah screw capcom and all their bs tiny DLCs that cost quite a bit of bucks to milk more money,to me this is capcom trying to say "see we give you stuff for free" when these are such little things in a regular game update.I really wish my old favorite game company didn't bite themselves and customers in the ass like this

You're obviously a selfish asshole who wants what's best for him and not for the FGC as a whole.

And what's best for the FGC? Sheepishly following the status quo? Saying "Kappa" at everything?

The FGC is killing the FGC, not a free update.

Ono does everything he can the appease you leeches and yet you still reek of negativity. MVC is so hype! I'll agree that I love MVC but the hypocrisy is unreal, the game is a broken mess.

I enjoy SFXT and will be downloading this update, and enjoying it.

@9 I believe it's been canned but I'm not 100% sure on that, last I heard that hadn't even started developing the game

Sorry for the double post, but why on earth haven't they added extra time to the timer for online play? 99 seconds is just not enough, even with slower health regen there will still be time outs galore.

@#27 - No, Namco specifically said it wasn't coming this year. They've been working on other things (specifically, they did Soul Calibur V, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and are also working on Super Smash Bros. now), it wasn't a priority for them and we'll get it when we get it.

Though it could easily get canceled down the line, but I am more excited for that version, since I imagine it won't have paid character DLC or exclusive crap on different consoles.

@27 god I hope not since was looking forward to the Tekken version since not a big fan fan of the street fighter physic's. Prefer the tekken physic's more.

@30 god I hope it doesn't get cancelled down the line, I think most people hate exclusive dlc, paid characters.
