'Next time we meet, let's watch Blanka's Pockets with smile ;D' — Yoshinori Ono on Street Fighter 5 new content

'Could I please ask you to wait a little longer? Thank you for your understanding'

It's been nearly five months since Kage was released for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition back in December. Since then, we've heard nearly nothing about future content as far as Season 4 is concerned despite the fact that we're now fast approaching E3 2019.

However, it seems Yoshinori Ono is well aware of the concerns about Street Fighter 5's future. He's taken to Twitter and said some very interesting things that Street Fighter fans may want to pay attention to.

"I fully understand what you'd like to want to new information about SF5 new season," said Ono. "So I have a lot of request about releasing SF5 new content from [the] World Warriors."

It's very interesting how he mentioned the "World Wariors." He finished this particular Tweet with "could I please ask you to wait a little longer? Thank you for your understanding."

In his next Tweet, he reaffirmed that Capcom will continue to develop Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. Most interesting of all, he stated that the "next time we meet, let's watch Blanka's Pockets with smile" with his usual ";D" emoji along with it.

It feels like it's been forever since we heard about anything new about Street Fighter 5 outside of costumes. More specifically, fans have been clamoring for a new character announcement. One can only hope that Yoshinori Ono is aware that this is what the community is hoping for.

Back in February, the U.K. community manager stated that "the story of Street Fighter 5 is not finished." Later in March, he again declared that he couldn't wait til the community sees what Capcom has in store for Street Fighter 5.

With E3 2019 in just a few weeks, perhaps it's finally time we found out what all this means?
