It was a dream come true for us as we've been fans of the franchise for years, and getting the chance to speak with him was truly enthralling.
- Now in 2019 it seems like Ono-san is moving onto bigger and better things, as he's officially a guest of honor at Anime Expo 2019!
- With over 25 years of experience at Capcom, he has worked on a variety of legendary franchises, including Onimusha, Monster Hunter and Street Fighter. In his early days with the company, he worked as a sound designer on Super Street Fighter II for the PC. Years later, he was promoted to the role of producer, where his smash hit title, Street Fighter IV, reinvigorated the fighting game genre and paved the way for a whole new generation of players to enjoy the intricacies and depth of the series. Currently, as executive producer for the Street Fighter series, Ono-san continues to blaze a trail for fans and aspiring game creators alike with his latest project, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Ono will participate in a panel and autograph sessions, so be sure to give him a shout out when you get there! Don't forget to say...SHORYUUUKEN!!
