Street Fighter V will be 'something that nobody is expecting'

0

And it isn't killing Ono!

Capcom has been polishing that Street Fighter IV diamond for seven years now. An entire generation of consoles. This isn't lost on resident lovable, worked-to-death producer Yoshinori Ono, who told Edge that all that wax on, wax off will pay dividends for the next project.

"All this means that, with Street Fighter 5, we have a fantastic opportunity to create something with a larger scope, a game that encompasses all that Street Fighter has become in the last few years, but which also expands on that to become something it has never been before as well," Ono said. "So now we want to create something that nobody is expecting. It's going to be a title that caters to fans, of course, but one that also invites completely new players onto the scene. Street Fighter 4 was about reviving a passion. Street Fighter 5 is about growing that passion."

It's all a bit "BREAKING: Man working on game thinks game will be good," but it's a strong statement to have to live up to. But we've seen Chun Li wearing an overturned bowl of noodles like a hat, so things are trending in the right direction.

Particularly good to hear, though, is that Street Fighter V doesn't appear to be killing Ono. "I’ve worked on many different projects within Capcom, but in my career here, the greenlight process for Street Fighter 5 was comfortably the most straightforward," he explained. "This game was probably a hundred times easier to get off the ground than the previous one. The passion around Street Fighter is currently such that the internal team within Capcom has been incredibly eager. There have been far fewer obstacles and far less stress. In personal terms, Street Fighter 5 represents something new for me too."
