Quick quotes: Yoshi Ono compares Street Fighter to Premier League football

Thursday, 31st March 2011 14:31 GMT By Johnny Cullen

“A quick metaphor: think of the Premier League. When Manchester United play Chelsea, you have the most professional, skilful players taking part, so any kid just out of school can’t join that team. However, just because not everyone can play for Manchester United doesn’t mean no one plays football. Until recently, we only ever aimed Street Fighter at the high end. We’ve been neglecting people who want to play at their own level.” – Super Street Fighter IV producer, and the world’s most happiest man, Yoshinori Ono, asked by The Guardian if its risked alienating the hardcore by moving to the mainstream.

    Why is Yoshi talking about Street Fighter? Just stick to carrying Mario around and licking Piranha Plants you silly dinosaur.
