Street Fighter, Tekken Devs Strike Deal To Share Matchmaking Tech

Capcom and Bandai Namco have entered into a cross-licensing agreement “related to online matching in properties such as the Street Fighter series.” Capcom says the goal is to improve the “user experience” for the player, and it specifically focuses on online matchmaking.

It’s an issue both companies have struggled with. Street Fighter V players have been subjected to long waits in online multiplayer, among other issues, and the company has been working to improve gameplay since. Bandai Namco’s latest instalment in the Tekken series, Tekken 7, also experienced some online gameplay issues at its release. Earlier this month, the company introduced a patch to improve matchmaking.

Capcom and Bandai Namco’s deal will also “[accelerate] the production of titles and [reduce] development costs for both parties…Capcom aims to effectively utilize the patents it has been granted in game series such as Street Fighter in order to deliver even more exciting content to game players,” the developer said.

Earlier this year, Bandai Namco stopped development on its game Tekken x Street Fighter, a joint project with Capcom. The game director, Katsuhiro Harada, said the developers didn’t want to “split these communities,” stating the game was now on hold. Tekken x Street Fighter was supposed to be a follow-up to Capcom’s game Street Fighter x Tekken, which was released in 2012.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
