Yoshinori Ono To Hold Comic-Con Panel, Teases Other Project Again



While Capcom Europe’s Twitter teasing may have dealt with an existing game, we wouldn’t suggest feeling let down just yet, for those of you that were hoping for a new announcement — Street Fighter IV producer, Yoshinori Ono, may yet deliver the goods.


In light of recent tweets, we know now that Ono’s own Twitter teases are to do with a different announcement entirely. Multiple announcements, perhaps. In his latest round of tweets, Ono begins by touching upon his San Diego Comic-Con plans. While Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a shoo-in for the convention, Super Street Fighter IV is going to have a major presence at the event as well.


“I am going to be at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday 24th of July!” Ono reveals in one tweet. He goes on: “There will be a SSFIV Panel Discussion with me between 12:00 – 13:00 so make sure to come and see me if you are around.”


A Super Street Fighter IV panel? Curious. But Ono didn’t stop there. In another tweet, he teases us with the prospect of a secret project once again: “I finally hope to reveal a bit about what I’ve been relentlessly working on lately. But there is Evo2010 first…and I haven’t packed yet!”


So, to recap: Ono’s going to be heading to EVO 2010, then talking Super Street Fighter IV at Comic-Con. And after all this, he still has a major announcement to make about a project he’s working on. Exciting times!
