Some key features for Street Fighter X Tekken are also mentioned on the Worth Playing website as the characters from both sides come up against each other for the first time and their signature moves and personalities are put to the test. In similar style to the 2D gameplay in Street Fighter IV, there will be fully realized 3D character models that will compete in various modes including Tag Team combat where players select two fighters and swap between the pair for more advantage.
The controls will be familiar to those in both the original games and fighters like Poison, Ryu, Ken, Guile, Chun-Li Dhalsim and Abel will be available from Street Fighter as well as Steve, Bob, Yoshimitsu, Kazuya, Nina, King, and Marduk from Tekken.

A preview of Street Fighter X Tekken is documented on Game Guru and straight from picking up the controls, they noticed a difference, which was the fluid responsive controls and gameplay although it does seem to be more Street Fighter orientated. The arcade feel is reminiscent of the old arcade games with great combos that can be taken advantage of in the Tag Mode, as fun is to be had by calling over your partner to finish the juggling side of the attack. Enjoying all the modes, they found the Scramble mode the best with up to four players up against each other on and offline, overall they feel that in the short time they experienced playing this they found it to be a game that the fans will enjoy even though expectations of Capcom will be high.
