Eurogamer writes: "I joined Capcom 17 years ago with just one ambition: to be involved with Street Fighter in whatever way I possibly could." Yoshinori Ono has the incredulous smirk of a boy given the keys to his very own sweet shop. "My love of the game was my entire reason for taking the job.
'Eventually I managed to work my way onto the team making the Alpha games, then I helped out with Street Fighter III. But to think that I would have the entire franchise resting on my shoulders... I never dreamt something like that might happen. Sometimes it's a burden and sometimes it's a joy. But either way, it's always a constant surprise to me.'"
