Street Fighter X Tekken Vita hitting Europe on October 19


Here's hoping you Europeans and your Vitas are ready to rumble, as Street Fighter X Tekken for Sony's handheld got a release date this morning of October 19. That's a full four days before your North American counterparts get their grubby mitts on the cross-publisher portable fighter, meaning you'll have a full 96 hours of practice time with which to become a master of Shadowloo.

It also gives you some time to study up on your American English smack talk. Here, we'll get you started: "I do declare my good sir, your pugilistic pugnacity is that of a homeschooled hill person!" Gets 'em every time!
