Pandora power revealed in Street Fighter x Tekken

Capcom have released a new trailer for the upcoming crossover fighter which shows off a very interesting new mechanic known as “Pandora“.

The story behind the new mechanic is all explained in the trailer below and sounds interesting to say the least, my personal guess to where this will take us with the story is that all characters from both sides will be fighting for the power for their own reasons.

Story aside though, the in-game effect of Pandora is what makes this a really interesting addition to SFxT as it does more than just make your character turn all glowy and purple.
Anyone that has played Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be aware of the Xfactor mechanic which allows players to receive a huge boost, usually in order to comeback from certain defeat. With Xfactor, the less players you have on your team, the better the effect becomes when using it, but as Street Fighter x Tekken works slightly differently from MvC3 with the whole character-tag situation, the effects of Pandora will also slightly differ.

Pandora works by giving one of your characters a huge power boost in return for sacrificing the other member of your team, and whilst at a glance this could prove to be a brilliant decision to make in most cases, you have to remember that when one of your teammates dies in SFxT, you lose.
This means that upon activating the effects of Pandora, you will have 15 seconds to destroy you opponent otherwise you yourself will lose the fight.

Be sure to check out the trailer for the new mechanic below, and as usual let us know what you think of the new addition in the comments section.
