Street Fighter creator, Yoshinori Ono, would love to bring more of the franchise to the Switch in the future. The long-running fighting game franchise has been a huge player in the scene, you can even trace their existence all the way back to the golden age of arcade gaming.
With the release of the Switch, though, it was a given they’d at least give the portable console a shot. Sure enough, it seems to have captured the franchise’s creator’s attention. In an interview with USgamer, he divulged how he would love to see more entries of the popular franchise on the Switch.
“Since the Switch came out, we’ve released Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for that platform. From a business standpoint, these two titles were a success. We are seeing many competitive titles, including Smash Bros., doing well on Switch and players are enjoying those types of experiences on that platform. If there is another opportunity that makes sense for us, we would consider the Switch again.”
All in all, Ono seems to enjoy the platform as a whole, calling it an “important platform for all types of gaming.” His desire to bring more entries to the Switch was never hidden. Back in October, he told fans it wasn’t a matter of convincing Capcom of bringing more Street Fighter to the Switch, but rather, it’s Nintendo they need to convince.
There are still currently no plans of bringing its more popular, Street Fighter 5, to the table, but who knows, maybe enough people call for it, they’ll deliver.
