PS Vita: Street Fighter x Tekken coming in fall, exclusive characters revealed

The PS Vita version of Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) will not be joining the Xbox 360 and PS3 release date.

That's because Capcom told Andriasang that the Vita version is due by the fall instead of March 6. It's not all bad news for those looking to make a purchase on Sony's handheld.

12 exclusive characters will be coming to the Vita. On the Street Fighter side, Elena, Guy, Cody, Sakura, Dudley and Blanka and on the Tekken side, Alisa, Christie, Jack, Bryan, Lars and Lei.

There's no word on why the Vita version will not be making a release just before spring. It's possible that Capcom wants Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3) to shine before the other crossover hits the handheld.

It's interesting to note that three of the four exclusive characters were leaked as DLC back in late January.
