In a string of tweets today, Yoshinori Ono drew quite a bit of attention towards upcoming Street Fighter 5 events. He first disclosed that he's preparing to depart for Dubai to prep for an upcoming SF5 event, but that this will make it impossible for him to attend PAX Prime this weekend.

Though he won't be there, Ono took special care to remind us that there's going to be a special announcement at PAX. Just a few minutes later, an excited Ono followed up with this: Knowing Ono's eccentric nature, "my wish" could mean almost anything. There are a few speculations to be had here. The character of whose figurine Ono totes around virtually everywhere, Blanka, could be on the horizon.

Ono has gone on record saying that he's a big R. Mika fan, and that higher ups have stopped him from including her in Street Fighter 4. Perhaps the time is now?

What are your speculations about Ono's tweets today? Let us know in the comments.
