Capcom will fix the high-profile Street Fighter x Tekken game breaking bug in the middle of June, it's announced.

The bug, which emerged following the release of the latest patch, causes a game freeze whenever any knife attack touches a fireball, forcing a restart.

Today Capcom apologised for the glitch and vowed to fix it.

"As many of you are likely aware, a game-breaking glitch was discovered in SFxT following the 1.04 update - generally speaking, anytime knife-like projectiles (Ibuki, Cody, Rolento etc) collide with fireballs (Ryu, Chun Li etc), the game will crash," Capcom said in a blog post on Capcom Unity.

"We have word today the dev team is hard at work investigating the issue, and plans to have a patch available soon."

A statement from SFxT designer Tomoaki Ayano was also released.

"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. Thank you very much."
