X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes
It was the first game to blend a tag team style of combat with the Street Fighter gameplay, as well as incorporating elements from Capcom's previous Marvel-themed fighting games, X-Men: Children of the Atom and Marvel Super Heroes. It was ported to the Sega Saturn in 1997 and PlayStation in 1998. However, the tag team feature was omitted from the PlayStation version due to memory limitations.
The game's story begins with Ryu. During his travels, Ryu encounters Cyclops and the X-Men who show interest in his power. But then, Apocalypse has returned, stronger and more powerful than before. Now, Ryu, his friends, enemies and the X-Men must band together to fight against Apocalypse, some for the purpose of saving the world, and others for the purpose of conquering it.
The X-Men characters come largely unchanged from X-Men: Children of the Atom and Marvel Super Heroes, and three characters new to the series are introduced in the form of Rogue, Gambit and Sabretooth. The Street Fighter characters use their Street Fighter Alpha 2 forms and their special moves were given upgrades to match the larger-than-life atmosphere of the Marvel games (for example, Ryu's Hadouken is much larger than it is in other games). This game marks the first appearance of "Shadaloo" depiction of Cammy, who would reappear in the console versions of Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold, as well as in Street Fighter Alpha 3.
In terms of the voice acting, Marvel characters were voiced by the very same voice actors of the Marvel cartoon shows such as Cedric Smith, Christopher Daniel Barnes and so on. While Street Fighter characters were voiced by Japanese seiyuus.
The X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter games were both successful and inspired the hit Marvel Vs. Capcom Trilogy in which not only Street Fighter but other Capcom characters such as Arthur, Mega Man and Chris Redfield would join the fight, and Marvel Super Heroes and villains like Thor, Iron Man, Dr. Doom, and Ghost Rider would be there was well.
Street Fighter X Tekken
The story of the game starts at the center of the conflict between the Street Fighter and Tekken universes is a cubical object that crash-lands in Antarctica. The object is of a mysterious origin and researchers worldwide are unable to determine what purpose it serves. The only thing that can be understood is that when beings come into conflict around this object, it releases a water-like energy that brings more power to the combatants. Due to the object's tendency to react to conflict between beings, they name it "Pandora". Whilst a standard story is given to most combinations of fighters, specific teams, such as Ryu and Ken or Kazuya and Nina, receive their own unique story elements and rival battles.
The gameplay has elements such as Super Combos and EX Attacks. Players each choose two fighters from the Street Fighter and Tekken series. Both sets of characters are controlled using the Street Fighter six-button system, but the Tekken characters are able to perform Tekken style combos using the primary four buttons in a similar fashion to the Tekken four-button system. These fighters can be switched out normally, or during certain combos. As fights go on, players build up power in a three sectioned meter at the bottom of the screen referred to as the Cross Gauge, which allow the player to perform various techniques depending on how much of the gauge is filled, such as EX Attacks, Cancels, Super Arts and various Cross techniques detailed below.
Two new mechanics are introduced in the game: Gem System and Pandora Mode. Players equip up to three gems to their characters, which provide different stat boosts depending on the type of gem. Six varieties of gems exist: attack, defense, speed, vitality, assist, and Cross Gauge. Each gem and its effects are designated by a specific color, and will activate as the players fulfill certain conditions during battle. When a character on a player's team has less than 25% health remaining, that character can be sacrificed in order to activate Pandora Mode, which gives the remaining fighter increased strength and an infinite Cross Gauge. However, this state has a time limit and the player automatically loses if he/she cannot defeat the opponent before the Pandora state runs out.
There was a hype for this game prior to it's release, but unfortunately once it came out, it was not well received due to the game being so slow at times.
