You know, Yoshinori Ono, liars go to hell.
But – given the circumstances – we forgive you. Just this once.
Via Twitter, Ono strongly (it was downright fierce, in fact) hinted that Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will be making the leap onto consoles after all. Replying to a fan’s seemingly blind optimism about the situation, he said:
“Yeah, [it] could be [coming to consoles]. Wait it news after 3DS in US!!”
He then added that an “official” announcement is coming “soon.”
For the uninitiated, the Arcade Edition’s claims to fame are less balance and more special characters – including versions of Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and Oni. Unless Ono’s gotten bored with videogames and decided that playing games with his fans’ hearts is more fun, it looks like you’ll have a chance to take them all for a spin sooner rather than later.
