Street Fighter x Tekken: M. Bison and Ling Xiaoyu portraits revealed

Chalk this one up in the no brainer column.

If you didn't expect Street Fighter's most hated dictator, M. Bison, to make the cut in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT), we'd like to question your sanity. The leader of Shadaloo and Tekken's Ling Xiaoyu have been confirmed.

A screenshot on the Xbox Live Marketplace reveals portraits of both characters as Heihachi pummels Dhalsim.

M. Bison made his debut in Street Fighter II, which was released for Arcades in March 1991 and Super Nintendo in the summer of 1992. He served as a host for the tournament and was the last character fought in the game.

Xiaoyu made her debut in Tekken 3, released in 1997. She is a student and Panda caretaker who strives to build an amusement park in China.

SFxT will be released on March 6 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PS Vita. A PC version is also in the works. The game is expected to sell over two million copies.
