Street Fighter V Producer Yoshinori Ono Answers on Returning Characters, Chance of New DarkStalkers

on February 14, 2016 3:09 PM

Street Fighter V is only a couple of days away, with 16 characters at launch and six more already announced, but not everyone’s favorite has been included, so fans are already asking Producer Yoshinori Ono on whether there’s a chance to see the return of some of those who are, for now, excluded.

First of all, Ono-san responded tongue-in-cheek about Akuma.

Apparently there are “a lot of things” to be done before the return of Ingrid.

The possibility is not zero for Sagat.

Evil Ryu may be considered if players demand it.

Ono-san also joked (but is it really a joke?) about the possibility of Sakura returning in an older form.

If you’re waiting for a new Marvel vs Capcom, unfortunately it isn’t in the works for now.

Apparently, Ono-san is also “striving hard” to get a new Darkstalkers approved.
