Remember Me: Street Fighter’s Ono helping with combat
Remember Me is Capcom’s latest western signing, a third person action-adventure game developed by French studio Dontnod. Revealed during gamescom last week, Remember Me’s approach to combat is being advised by none other than Street Fighter director Yoshinori Ono.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Capcom senior producer Mat Hart revealed Ono’s involvement, “He’s my boss and he and I speak very regularly about the game, and he’s come out with me to Paris. He knows the team and knows the game very well. I always benefit from his wisdom when I’m chatting to him about how we’re progressing.”
“It’s a bit like the situation Capcom has with Ninja Theory. The strategy of western development is building teams together – Capcom and a developer coming together and making a game together – as opposed to quite an old-fashioned approach of being adversarial. We’re moving away from that.”
“When we saw the game way back last year, we instantly knew this had the DNA to support the Capcom brand and be a really strong part of our portfolio. This is going to be a major franchise for us.”
What did you make of the Remember Me reveal? Interesting, or is it too early to say yet?
