Ono wants to pitch Nintendo X Capcom fighter This would be pretty much a no-brainer for Capcom, as doing a cross over fighting game with Nintendo would likely be a gigantic success for them, but there's a short story up on Cubed3.com stating:

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono has confirmed interest in a Nintendo X Capcom fighter. At the Nintendo 3DS conference in Amsterdam yesterday, Cubed3 attended Ono-san's roundtable session and managed to ask the key question, "Considering you are trying to make Street Fighter IV 3DS accessible to a wider audience, did you ever think about including Nintendo characters to broaden the appeal?"

Rather than brushing the question off completely, instead Ono-san reacted very positively, saying he would like to make a Nintendo X Capcom fighting game and that the idea should be pitched to Nintendo of Japan and Masahiro Sakurai.

Assuming this title was green-lit, there's a strong chance it would follow past cross over games with both Nintendo and Capcom making their own game with each others' characters.
