Capcom announced today that the PS Vita edition of Street FIghter x Tekken will allow for cross-platform functionality with the PS3. In other words, gamers playing SFxT on Vita will be able to fight players using a PS3, provided they're connected to either Wi-Fi or 3G.

The Vita version will also have some added touch controls. There's no word on how they'll work exactly, but it's probably safe to assume they'll be similar to the controls for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on Vita, which allow players to activate supers by touching the gauge and to perform basic combo by simply tapping the screen.

As we've reported in the past, the Vita version of PS Vita will include all 12 DLC charcters, plus a few extra special cameo. The trailer above in the first episode in a series of extended trailers about the new combatants entering the fight.

Look for Street Fighter x Tekken to hit PS Vita this fall.
