Since no one had made a topic about it already, this is the Street Fighter X Tekken topic. This topic can be for future reveals and information, possible roster additions and gameplay mechanics, the works, until Street Fighter X Tekken gets it’s own section sometime in the future. Since more information is on the way, we might as well have this topic in hand for later. If you have any information I might’ve missed, go ahead and say so in the topic and I’ll correct, and, like I said, don’t be afraid to turn this into Theory Fighter or Prediction Fighter because this isn’t strict discussion, talk about whatever you like!
(If embed works on SRK posts let me know, because on “Preview Post” it doesn’t work, so I can’t tell if it’ll work or not just yet. So for safety, I’ll just post links.)

The HUD is also shown. There seems to be a super meter, and what seems to be space above the lifebar for the Ultra mechanic. Credit for blitzfu.)

Confirmed Tekken Characters:
A junkyard stage found in the gameplay trailer, has various Capcom nods in it, such as ServBot.
A jungle stage with Alex found on it. (??? ??? Oop! Is this shot SFxTK!? on Twitpic, this might affect Roger Jr’s and Alex’s chances in the game. I hope not. Credits to Doofensmirtz.)
Unlike Super Street Fighter IV, the game is played 2 on 2, you choose 2 characters instead of one. It is unknown whether you play with both chosen characters but it is assumed as such.
The ultras from Super Street Fighter IV are back, but it is unclear if the circumstances to use them are the same, as it may or may not still be a comeback mechanic. The trailer shows tag team ultras, as the characters did them back to back. It is unknown if ALL the characters have tag team ultras, and it is also unknown how to perform them.
Capcom says that they are working on something to replace the Focus Attack system, so do not expect it to return.
Capcom is working in mechanics commonly found in Tekken’s engine (Such as the ground roll seen in the trailer.).
The combo system is said not to be the same as Street Fighter IV, Capcom is considering a system very similar to Darkstalker’s magic series. (The trailer shows Ryu performing a Heavy Punch -> Heavy Kick combination.)
The Tekken fighters are staying similar to their source material. Capcom is looking at all of them and picking movesets accordingly. It is assumed that the iconic moves found in the Tekken cast’s moveset (Such as the Godfist.) are to be used as specials, and various combos and moves from their movesets will be put in Capcom’s engine, with tweaks. (Kazuya has target combos reflecting this.)
The current rivalries are Ryu Vs. Kazuya and Chun Li Vs. Nina. It isn’t known if every character will have a rival, but Capcom will set some atleast.
Both Capcom and Namco are looking to include earlier generation of characters from both series. The general consensus is that Capcom is going to definitely include characters from Street Fighter 2 (And sequels.), but it isn’t outlandish to believe that Alpha, Street Fighter 3, Street Fighter 4 and even Street Fighter 1 characters may get into the roster. In Tekken’s case, Tekken 3 introduced a newer generation cast, so Tekken 1 and 2 characters may be hinted upon, while it also isn’t outlandish to believe that Tekken 3, 4, 5 and 6 characters won’t get in.
The roster is reported to be almost final. That was awhile ago, so by now I would figure that the roster has long been decided.
The game will release sometime in 2012, considering Capcom’s habits, it will be in first or second quarter of the gaming season.
