Ono Announces Break From Street Fighter

Capcom legend Yoshinori Ono has announced he'll be taking a bit of a break from Street Fighter development, following his sudden illness and hospitalisation last week.

"I'll refrain from work for current job for a while," he tweeted. "Another person in charge of SF series for a while."

"Of course I’ll [give] constant support to it," he added. "I’ll be out of the limelight [of] fighting game series for a while. I’ll think about the new future of fighting games after this.”

He apologised for scaring everyone, thank all of his well-wishers, and said that the Street Fighter X Tekken team "are working wholeheartedly on patches for SF X TK. Please wait just a little longer".

We wish Ono the speediest of recoveries, and hope he has a chance to to enjoy a very well-earned rest indeed. [via EDGE]
