Ono: Nintendo X Capcom is 'not terribly likely' Street Fighter 4 series producer made some waves when he mentioned that he'd like to do a Nintendo X Capcom cross over game. The buzz was to intense around this project, it even managed to get back to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.


IGN wrote a little more on the matter, but it wasn't very good news, as Ono outright said the project was unlikely to happen.

"I certainly don't think anything is impossible, though not terribly likely is probably a way to phrase it," Ono said.

And what about that encounter with Iwata? "I had to go to Nintendo President Iwata-san and actually apologize that I let things get out of hand," Ono told us laughing, perhaps slightly embarassed by the entire situation. "But maybe this whole conversation could be the start of something like that… or maybe it ends with me in the dog house with Iwata-san. Time will tell where [this is] going to go."

Also, in another story on IGN, Ono briefly chimed in on the case for Darkstalkers, basically saying the title hasn't generated enough interest to get green-lit.
