Yoshinori Ono was the main behind most Street Fighter Games that were released between 1998 and 2020. Yoshinori Ono had worked with Capcom for nearly 30 years until now, as he steps down from the job. In a twitter post, Ono explained that he was part of Capcom and Street Fighter Series in difficult and best of times.
Other than that, he also mentioned that he will be leaving the company and will resign from the brand manager title, simply meaning leaving the company.
“I’ve been with the Street Fighter brand for a long time, experiencing good times, bad times, and even non-existent times,” he wrote.
“My heart is filled with appreciation to those players who’ve been giving warm and kind support on the brand especially little over the past decade or so as all the activities on the Street Fighter brand regained sunshine and grew its liveliness.”
“Capcom staff in the new generation will continue taking care of the Street Fighter brand and leading the World Warriors. And, I do believe that they will continue making Street Fighter extraordinary.
“I will look forward to seeing the new Street Fighter brand and how it’s going to be expanded, as just one of regular gamers next time.”
He didn’t actually state why he has left the job. However, many industry insiders that have sources within Capcom claim that Ono wasn’t particularly happy with where the series was heading. Nevertheless, mad respect for Ono because few people are that dedicated to what they love doing.
