Following the clarifications made by Capcom's Yoshinori Ono on Twitter yesterday, Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has released today an official statement on the company's investor relations site refuting the claims made in Sponichi Annex's report.


According to the press release, during the press interview Tsujimoto did not make "any comments on adjusting [the] strength of characters in the game" by means of a pay system.

The statement also says that Capcom has not officially announced any details regarding a "Street Fighter 5", including the title of the game itself -- although Yoshinori Ono's tweets yesterday have revealed that a sequel to the hit fighting game is currently in "early planning stages".

A certain media organization carried an interview with Capcom President Haruhiro Tsujimoto. Regarding the reference to a pay system in the interview article, Haruhiro Tsujimoto did not make any comments on adjusting strength of characters in the game by using this type of system.

Furthermore, details regarding "Street Fighter 5", including the title itself, were not officially announced at this point.
