The GamesCom trailer for Street Fighter X Tekken introduces a few new characters. Raven from Tekken (who, for the benefit of non-Tekken players, is not actually Blade: Vampire Hunter) and Ibuki are joining the roster of pugilists. The other new arrival shouldn't come as a surprise: Hugo joins his manager Poison as a playable character on the Capcom side. And he's enormous.
Other than character reveals, this trailer goes into a surprising amount of detail about the mechanics of Street Fighter X Tekken. You'll learn how to swap characters and how to launch ... a launcher.
If you're in London and you'd like to experience the game for yourself, Capcom confirmed today that it's still holding the London Fight Club event on August 20.
