Ono: Huge focus was put on Street Fighter X Tekken's online system

Ono: Huge focus was put on Street Fighter X Tekken's online system In a departure from other websites, Giant Bomb took the time to ask Ono some pertinent questions about Street Fighter X Tekken, its gem system and fighting games in general.

Even though there aren't many questions, Ono answers them with a nice amount of detail. Ono also elaborates on why you can't filter out gem users online and the future of fighting games. Some pieces of the interview are below and you can hit the article for the full scoop.

Giant Bomb: Fighting games were a massive hit in the 90s...until they weren’t. With several games now under your belt, how do you avoid falling into the same complexity pit that alienated so many players all over again?

Ono: As you mentioned, once fighting games had that boom in the 90s, basically the market was flooded with all sorts of different fighting games. Like we mentioned, they were kind of made for the arcade setting, so while there was a lot of them, they were actually really simple at heart. Some of them got kind of complicated--Third Strike had parries and stuff. For Street Fighter X Tekken, what we wanted to do, it all comes down to balance. You wanted to be able to appeal to the casual audience, while having enough stuff in there for hardcore fans to play, research and do their thing in the training mode.

What we tried to do with Street Fighter X Tekken was to put in aspects that would appeal to all users, things like cross rush, the tag battles--these are the things that the casual user can really enjoy really easily, while it also has some merit for the hardcore players. It’s definitely really hard, but we tried our best with Street Fighter X Tekken to keep everyone in mind and make something that everyone can enjoy.

One more thing that wasn’t available in the 90s was online play, and that’s something that we put a huge focus on this game. All the modes in this game can be played online, and you can do online, offline, [and a] mix of human/CPU. We wanted to give players as many options as possible. The great thing about fighting games is that it’s like one-versus-one, and you’re trying to compete against the other guy in that kind of arcade setting. With online, we’ve been able to do is bring that kind of arcade setting onto the Internet, so you can do it, even though arcades don’t really do well these days, it’s still the kind of experience you can get if you’re playing the game online. We want players to foster that human network, human interaction--going back-and-forth with ideas and strategies. We think that Street Fighter X Tekken, [with] the new net code and things like that, will help them really enjoy the online.

Ono interested in Street Fighter crossover with Mortal Kombat

Ono interested in Street Fighter crossover with Mortal Kombat A Street Fighter crossover with Mortal Kombat is something fans have been asking about for a long time, and recently Yoshinori Ono confirmed his interest on Twitter. Ono added that it would be difficult to do, though. He also talked about a Marvel vs. DC title he talked about in the past, but said making it would be "impossible."

Christian Svensson and Seth Killian also jumped in to update users on the PC release of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 and respond to a query regarding if you can disable the glow of gems in Street Fighter X Tekken, among other topics.

Will we ever see a Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter? It's a cross over we've always hoped for. — DanDaveTaylor

Ono: Ummm, it's so hard. But I have interest in it ;D

Will there be another status update for PC SSF4 AE v2012? — Eternal
