Street Fighter X Tekken crash fix coming in June

A game-crashing Street Fighter X Tekken bug that snuck into the fighter with the last update should be fixed by mid-June, Capcom has said. The glitch is a nasty one, likely to bring the game tumbling down in fairly common circumstances.

The crash strikes in version 1.04 of the console edition when knife-like projectiles (Ibuki, Cody, Rolento etc) collide with fireballs (Ryu, Chun Li etc), Capcom explains in a blog post.. Given that Street Fighter's all about keeping enemies at a certain range, often by tossing stuff around, well, be sure that you don't play any knife-y or fiery people online until it's patched.

Here's a statement from Capcom producer Tomoaki Ayano:

As many of you are aware, a game breaking glitch has appeared in Street Fighter X Tekken after the release of the 1.04 update. The development team is currently examining the problem and planning to patch the game as quickly as possible. The patch to fix the glitch should be released by mid June. We truly apologize for this problem, and hope everyone will be patient until the patch is released.
