US Gamer has had the chance to chat with longtime Street Fighter series producer, Yoshinori Ono, about the long-running franchise and its future. The topic of the Nintendo Switch quickly came around and Ono said that he was pleased with the sales of the two Street Fighter titles on the system and would consider the Nintendo Switch again for any other Street Fighter opportunities. Here’s what he said:
Since the Switch came out, we’ve released Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for that platform. From a business standpoint, these two titles were a success. We are seeing many competitive titles, including Smash Bros., doing well on Switch and players are enjoying those types of experiences on that platform. If there is another opportunity that makes sense for us, we would consider the Switch again. Regarding Street Fighter 5, it is currently exclusive to PS4 and PC. However, as mentioned above, we do see Switch as an important platform for all types of games.
