3DS developers should 'stop slacking' - Ono

Developers need to stop whining about hardware, says SF man

Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono has said that developers who moan about the capabilities of Nintendo 3DS should shut up and concentrate on making good games.

Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine, Ono said he believes he has created the best looking handheld game ever in Super Street Fighter IV 3D and has encouraged game developers to stop slacking and follow Capcom's lead.


"I've heard some pessimistic comments on 3DS capabilities before the launch from some game creators but they obviously have not seen Super Street Fighter IV 3D or Resident Evil games on the 3DS," Ono told ONM.

"When I first had the chance to see 3DS I went over the moon three times because of the 3D vision, hardware spec and the extensive network functions."

He added: "With Super Street Fighter IV 3D you will see the best yet graphics on a handheld with specially tuned shaders and effects. I also think those game creators should stop slacking and just start making good games rather than whine about the tools given!"
