Capcom is working on a new fighting game, according to Yoshinori Ono

Thursday, 24th October 2013 10:09 GMT By Dave Owen

A certain Mr Yoshinori Ono, executive producer on the Street Fighter series, has dropped a few hints on Twitter about a new fighting game being in the works at Capcom. He tweeted this morning: “I want… no, Capcom wants Game Designer and programer for New Fighting Game. Its location at Tokyo or Osaka Studio.”

Ono also confirmed that the studio was “making preparation for development in just now.” A fan then asked him if the game would be next-gen. Ono replied: “I can’t speak, it’s imagine that…” So, it’s probably next-gen.

Whether a new fighting game means an all new IP or a fresh sequel to one of Capcom’s many fighter franchises is all guesswork for the moment (I guess the latter).

Start speculating… NOW.

Thanks, OXM.

    2D a la Blazblue please… we don’t need every fighting game to be 3D.

    Also, don’t make it a SF4, SFxT or MvC3 clone.

    Someone else in the world knows about Rival Schools..?

    But yes, that would indeed be totally awesome.

    Yes, most likely just a sequel, Mr. Ono uses the word new like in every sentence, even when talking about the same game.
