In addition to his exisiting appointment as deputy head of consumer games R&D, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono has accepted a position as a corporate office at Capcom Japan. On Twitter, the famously friendly industry veteran said it might be “tough” to enjoy the new role in addition to his current duties; Ono was taken ill last year due to overwork and has since publicly criticised Capcom for the pressure it places on staff.
