Ono talks about where the Street Fighter franchise is headed

Ono offered some enlightening details about the future of the Street Fighter franchise in an interview with ScrewAttack, saying that Capcom doesn't want to wait like they did previously with SF4 before releasing Street Fighter 5 and 6. He also said they want to continue updating their older titles and rebalancing so people can keep playing them.

Yoshinori talked about splitting up the franchise, with one series more dedicated to the hardcore players and another that would cater more to the casual crowd. Ideally, they'd find a way to merge both, but for right now, heading off in different directions makes more sense.

Also, Ono discusses how the player point and battle point system in SF4 didn't do a good enough job of giving new players a chance to win online, and that having something more like a golf handicap that gives new players a slight advantage over experienced competitors could work.

This is a very interesting video, as Ono is talking about what we might see in upcoming fighting games from Capcom. You should watch this.

What do you think of Ono's ideas on the future of Street Fighter? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
