Street Fighter X Tekken heads to Vita, brings Infamous’ Cole with it

Sony’s big third party game for the newly-named PlayStation Vita’s E3 reveal was, surprisingly, Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom took to the stage to show a new trailer for the game during the show, and provide a little bit of footage.

The Vita version (which we’re going to have to get used to saying) will carry a nice exclusive with it. The electric-fueled hero of the Infamous series, Cole Macgrath, will be a playable character on Vita. Only on Vita, mind. We saw gameplay of Cole facing off against Ryu. Rather embarrassingly for the demonstrator, Cole got his butt handed to him.

The game launches in the wide-window that is 2012. Will exclusives like this convince consumers to go Vita over PS3…ta?
