Capcom has issued an apology for the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter X Tekken lacking the ability to play four-player co-op online with a local partner.
"Unfortunately, due to time and resource issues, we weren't able to get that feature into the Xbox 360 version and we apologize to those players who were looking forward to it," assistant producer Tomoaki Ayano explained on the Capcom Unity blog. "Throughout the development process, there are times when new features are added (and we added a lot of them!) and there are also times where we have to make tough decisions regarding things to cut. This was one of those times."
Ayano added that the mode is supported in the PS3 version, because the team took on the work earlier and "found the architecture of their system to be more conducive to implementing it." The PS3 version also carries additional characters to choose from comparably to the game on 360.
Ayano assured players that new information would be coming soon, but wouldn't directly state whether or not the missing feature will actually ever be addressed.
Street Fighter X Tekken is available now on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A PC version is set for May, and a Vita version is in the works for this fall as well.
