Yoshinori Ono Steps Down As Street Fighter Producer

Capcom Japan has announced via Twitter that famed developer Yoshinori Oni has temporarily stepped down from his position as he focuses on recovery. Oni was rushed to hospital earlier this week while promoting Tekken X Street Fighter. Thankfully he has revealed that he is currently on the mend and that another Capcom staff member will take over his position for the time being.

  1. It’s Street Fighter X Tekken. Also, hope he recovers soon, no matter how shady Capcom’s tactics, I still don’t wish pain on another human….

    1. There are going to be two Versions of the game SFXT and TXSF. One more Street Fighter and the other more Tekken style so I don’t think he got the name wrong.

    1. Never be the same without Ono? I think Capcom will never be the same without Keiji Inafune, Tokuro Fujiwara, Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, or Atsushi Inaba! They fell on the floor without those 5 guys after they left the company.

  2. Isn’t his name Yoshinori Ono? It’s spelled Oni in the article. Whomever’s fault this is, it must be the Capcom curse.

  3. Please edit the title to be less misleading. We can’t trust everyone to actually read the story; responses in the comments section of score-based game reviews are proof of that.

  4. this a blatent attempt to freak people out with the headline so they read the article. i hate it when news sites do that. an appropiate headline would be: Yoshinori Ono is rushed to hospital, temporarily unable to work on SFxT
