Yoshinori Ono taking a break from work

"Another person" in charge of Street Fighter series "for a while."

A couple of days ago, Capcom made it known that Street Fighter X Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono had been hospitalized following a promotional event in Asia.

Ono addressed fan concerns on Twitter today through a series of Tweets (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), which we’ve compiled below.

“I caused [you] so much worry for a while. I went back to work. [Street Fighter] team [are] working wholeheartedly on patches for [Street Fighter X Tekken], [please] wait just a little longer,” he said. “I apologize for that. And thanks for a lot of get-well messages.

“I’ll refrain from work for [my] current job for a while. Another person in charge of [the Street Fighter] series for a while. Of course I’ll [give] constant support to it.”

He continued: “I’ll be out of the limelight [in the] fighting game series for a while. I’ll think about the new future of fighting game[s] after this. ;D

“I dont know that how long time continued for a long time this job. But I’ll try my best to be back here again.

“Physical health is of paramount importance. Let’s try to improve healthcare.”

Thanks, Edge.
