In this era of gaming, it feels like fighting games and Nintendo go hand in hand, with the success of the Super Smash Bros. franchise. In the last couple of entries in the franchise, we’ve seen other companies join in on the fun by adding their own characters — such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Street Fighter‘s Ryu — into the fray. Yoshinori Ono, Street Fighter producer, has mentioned on more than one occasion that he would love to do a crossover game with Nintendo.
In his latest interview, he went as far as to say that a Capcom Vs. Nintendo crossover project would be a “dream project” of his to work on. StreetPass UK was able to chat with Ono for a bit and during the interview, Ono said that he wouldn’t want Street Fighter to be the main focus in this dream collaboration. If this team-up were to actually happen, Ono would like to see more general Capcom characters in a fighting/Nintendo crossover.
He feels that a fighter like Zangief or Blanka could be interesting to see added to a Smash Bros. game, the former being a grappler fighter and the latter being a character that rolls into and out of the screen. Since Ryu is now already part of the Smash Bros. universe, I’m sure if Nintendo wanted another Street Fighter character, they would probably want a fighter based on a different character build.
