Yoshinori Ono has resigned from his position as director at Capcom Vancouver.
So sad :( Well, wherever you are heading I'm sure you will do a fabulous job Ono!
He sees the writing on the wall. He knows how many opportunities they are wasting.
He's still at capcom
Capcom Vancouver is DOOOOOMED!
Pretty much sums that up Naruto. @N4G We are not for the last time, we are not the same person SMH and who believe this https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Overused meme is overused.
Im pretty sure he was like the last of the people that brought capcom to where it is (or rather was) i wonder what they're gonna do now
He should retire. I always hear him being sick or something.
I take it that you are a Capcom Vancouver employee?
He is sick because Capcom treat him as if he was a robot. They overwork him to the point where he has been hospitalized on more than once.
What about my onimusha
Hope for HD collection?
Probably saw an early build of Resi 7 and decided to jump ship rather than go down with it
ono pls mega man legend in full 1080p asap
Ok this means his heading back to capcom japan or completely resign from capcom? If the first than good, because i still want him to develope SF V and new Darkstalker / Rival Schools.
WTF happened to Capcom this generation? Most of the talent has left and they don't seem to have any projects coming out soon besides more dlc and f2p. They have some fantastic franchises and aren't doing anything with them. If it wasn't for Ono Street Fighter IV wouldn't have the light of day. Wish him luck and good fortune.
Konami should buy capcom it's like a match made in heaven. Konami needs more IP's and Capcom needs new management. The ironic part is that capcom has more ips yet konami makes more money than they do.
Konami need's more IP from Capcom? Than those IP will be abandoned just like Konami did with Suikoden, Contra, Silent Hill, Bloody Roar, Bomberman, Snatcher, Policenaut, or ZoE. Even we still don't hear any news of what Konami gonna do with Castlevania after LoS 2, except bad news of Igarashi leaving the company. And the latest news i heard that they've been struggling from last year http://www.escapistmagazine... Even Ground Zeros reached the status of the worst sales debut of all MGS in japan http://www.dualshockers.com...
@Incepetion Are you serious??? Policenauts & snatcher were never even franchises. An most of those franchises you just mentioned don't even sell know where near the numbers that capcom IP's do. Plus honestly ask yourself this, where could konami possibly go with some of those franchises??
"Are you serious??? Policenauts & snatcher were never even franchises" I'm death serious. Both Snatcher and Policenauts ARE Konami's IP and they abandon both of them when a lot of fans wants a remaster or sequel. "An most of those franchises you just mentioned don't even sell know where near the numbers that capcom IP's do" Please use your brain mate. Suikoden, Contra, Silent Hill, Castlevania, and ZoE are sold very well just like Capcom IP's such as Megaman, Phoenix Wright, Dragon's Dogma, Breath of Fire, Dino Crisis, or Onimusha. If those IP's not selling well than why Konami made games after games for those IP's? Also, Bloody Roar and Bomberman owned by Hudson before the company merged with Konami. Both IP's are well known among gamers and sold well. But what Konami did with both IP? NONE. That's why i gave you those example. You talked like Konami know how to use Capcom IP's when in fact they abandoned their own and other company IP's. Not to mention Konami experienced the same thing like Capcom: almost all of their tallented staff already left the company. - Keiichiro Toyama, the creator of SH already left Konami and joined sony - Akira Yamaoka, the legendary composer of SH left Konami 5 years ago - Koji Igarashi, the producer of Castlevania and the man who bring us the legendary Symphony of Night left Konami this year - Yoshitaka Murayama, the creator of Suikoden left Konami in 2002 So, who do you think Konami can hand over all Capcom IP's when almost all of their talented staff left the company? "Plus honestly ask yourself this, where could konami possibly go with some of those franchises??" Lol i can asked you the same question. If you a fans of those IP's, especially Castlevania, Suikoden, ZoE, Silent Hill, Snatcher, or Policenauts, than you should knew there still a lot that Konami can do with them. But they did nothing and abandoned all of them.
@Inception Your English may need a little work, but your logic is flawless, my friend. There's a creative crisis in Japan, and we're seeing many of its greatest talents going the indie route and catering to the West, since Japanese companies are seriously undervaluing them. Companies like Capcom, Konami, Square Enix and Sega are falling fast.
Good bye SFV, deep down, and forget about Dragon's Dogma or Dino Crisis sequels. Thetr is literally not one good dev at Capcom right now.
he only removed the Capcom Vancouver position https://www.facebook.com/yo... He in Japan now
So he is still at Capcom? That's great news, I was worried this might have had something to do with SF5.
Yo, I wonder what this means for Deep Down. Isn't this the guy that was on stage showing off the game at the PS4 reveal?
I've never seen a company as disgustingly abusive of their employees as Capcom. Legendary creators have given the best years of their life to make some of the most beloved games in history and they overwork them, cancel projects they've slaved years over, outsource games while taking them out of their hands and get vindictive when they quit on them after all that abuse. I mean, shit, so far, they've lost Shinji Mikami, Hideki Kamiya, Suda51 and Keiji Inafune, and now they've lost Ono, the mastermind behind SF4 and possibly their most liked employee by the fandom. Capcom is like the worst of both Activision and EA combined and magnified by bullshit Japanese employee treatment
Suda never worked at Capcom!
Oh, that's right, he only worked for Capcom on Killer 7, my bad :/ The other ones do apply, though, and my point still stands that Capcom are shitty people.
Well whenever he leaves Capcom completely, I'm pretty sure Platinum Games could find a place for him.........
