Ryu and Kazuya face off in Street Fighter vs. Tekken

At Comic-Con, Capcom and Namco Bandai announced their next major fighting games, as the former company will be creating Street Figher X Tekken while the latter while be developing Tekken X Street Fighter. In single-universe news, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike will have have an online edition released.

Capcom & Namco Bandai developing separate Street Fighter-Tekken crossovers, Street Figher III going online

While both were announced at Capcom's Street Fighter Comic-Con panel, only the Capcom-developed Street Fighter X Capcom was shown, as attendees were able to see Ryu and Kazuya Mishima take each other on in a manner similar to Capcom's other crossover titles, with teammate switching and ultra moves taking place. The visual style, meanwhile, mimicks Street Fighter IV. Presumably, Namco Bandai's version will emphasize projectile-free brawling in the vein of its fighters. Nina Williams was named as another character in the game by Capcom in the company's official announcement, while Dan Hibiki was featured in the trailer. The games will be landing on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition was also announced during the panel, but no platform was announced for the release. Previous online remasterings of Capcom's classic fighting games have generally landed on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

No release date has been revealed for the three titles, but Capcom has stated that the crossover games will release after the spring-due Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
