So, I’ve been trolling the fighting game sites today expecting new info from TGS to pop up (as it seems to happen) and while scrolling through this bit of translated blog over at Capcom-Unity (http://www.capcom-unity.com/gregaman/blog/2011/09/16/tgs_begins!_rolento,_zangief,_heihachi,_lili,_toro_and_kuro_join_the_fray!) I stumbled under this little bit…
A character that is all too familiar to Street Fighter fans! Who will Zangief be partnering with in Street Fighter X Tekken!?
I bet that most people will want to see him team with a younger partner, but a fellow giant might be even more interesting, no?
Far be it from me to read into things too much, but I think this gives credence to at least the POSSIBILITY of Hakan. Once again, I may be reading into this, but the inclusion of “, no?” at the end is very much part of the vernacular and dialect that Hakan uses in his sentences, not to mention the fact that despite his poor posture, Hakan is quite large.
Now, sure, this is more than likely a Honda hint, but, in the game of odds, I think Hakan makes more sense than Honda. Sure, there are other possibly random inclusions, like Haggar (which doesn’t seem likely, as he has the same freaking moveset as Zang) or Sodom/Birdie (also possibilities, but I see no canon reason why they would team up).
So, take it with a grain of salt, but it may be something.
