Street Fighter x Tekken: Thousand Pounds Short Film Announcement
Are you a Street Fighter or a Tekken fan? Maybe both? You should check out this fun announcement video from Thousands Pounds who are filming a short film produced by Capcom.
Yeah, I love the girl kicking butt! Mostly because I am a Tekken girl all the way. I’ve kicked a few butts in the arcade back in my days, let me tell you. I’m looking forward to the Street Fighter x Tekken collaboration… although I’m sure I’ll get my ass kicked in the game.
Thousands Pounds will release the film in conjunction with the game’s release in March 2012.
