Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed why Capcom chose to bring Super Street Fighter IV to the 3DS instead of the current PSP and DS.
In an interview with Famitsu, Ono said that although Capcom looked at the PSP and DS, the current generation portables couldn't do justice to the title.
Andriasaang reports that Ono said both handhelds couldn't run the game 'at the level [Capcom] wanted'.
Ono also singled out the 3DS's wireless capabilities as key in the decision. He indicated that allowing players to communicate with each other is an important part of SSFIV 3DS.
He also revealed a few details about the upcoming 3D fighting game, assuring fans "the gameplay will be the same as Super Street Fighter IV" and that the game won't be dumbed down for a younger audience.
"Rather than that we'd like to make it into a title that makes kids grow" said Ono.
Capcom is currently placing a heavy focus on fighting games, it currently has Marvel vs. Capcom 3, SSIV 3DS, Third Strike: Online Edition and the recently announced crossover with Tekken in the pipeline.
