Well now here's Yoshinori Ono, who's in charge of the Street Fighter series, with his rebuttal: "Capcom didn't even acknowledge that I had been in hospital."
...Wait a minute...
So... they nearly kill this guy... and then gave him the exact same demands later on. It's pretty telling when a guy is practically begging an interviewer to use a headline that tells how much a company is trying to murder its' employees.
And then there's this little nugget:
"I was working on Onimusha 4 and during that time I repeatedly submitted my proposal for a new Street Fighter," he says. "The company kept telling me: 'It's a dead franchise. It doesn't make any money. We have series that make money like Resident Evil and Onimusha. Why bother with a dead franchise?'"
Yeah, stupid. Nobody wants to buy Street Fighter. They'd rather buy that game series no one bought. Just what I wanted, Capcom: a thing I didn't want, instead of the thing I did want. Great business practice, guys.
Just something to keep in mind when Resident Evil 6 comes out.
