Yoshinori Ono, the legendary Street Fighter producer, has given us some insight into how matters are handled within Capcom when it comes to game sales.
“That’s what I’ve always been telling the company too,” referring to fan requests for a sequel. “But at the end of the day, there are just some brick walls that a salaryman can never overcome *laughs*.

“All that means is that we weren’t capable enough. And all we can do after that is to reflect on the experience, take what we can learn from it, and try to apply those lessons on some other title.”
