Ono: Nintendo x Capcom is not really a thing

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 7 February 2011 00:17 GMT

Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono has debunked rumours of a possible Nintendo x Capcom brawler, admitting he apologised to Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata for creating a fuss.

Ono told IGN the rumours were the result of light-hearted comments being taken seriously.

“I mentioned it was an interesting idea that somehow transmogrified on the Internet into me saying I was going to do it!” he said. “I have no plans to do it.”

The producer was widely reported to have said he wanted to pitch the concept to Nintendo, but now says the crossover is unlikely.

“I certainly don’t think anything is impossible, though not terribly likely is probably a way to phrase it,” he said.

“I had to go to Nintendo President Iwata-san and actually apologize that I let things get out of hand,” he added.
