Super Street Fighter IV Yoshinori Ono will be present at the official 3DS launch at HMV Oxford Street tomorrow night, according to this MCV report.

The developer is to take place in stage battles of the handheld, 3D edition of his game, which goes on sale alongside 3DS at midnight.

“I’ll be visiting HMV’s flagship shop in London at 11pm 24th,” Ono said on Twitter.

“I’ll ride on plane to London. I’m looking forward to meet European Street Fighter fans,” he added.

3DS releases this week in both Europe and the US, following a launch last month in Japan.
