Yoshinori Ono takes corporate officer position at Capcom

In addition to existing role in the consumer games R&D division

Yoshinori Ono has taken on the role of corporate officer at Capcom, in addition to his existing position as deputy head of the publisher's consumer games R&D division.


The long-time producer and popular industry figure, who is best known for his work on the Street Fighter series, took time off last year after being hospitalised following a tour of Asia, but he was soon back at work and continues to act as a public face for the company.

Ono recently represented Capcom at the PS4 reveal event in February, when he took to the stage to show off a new fantasy IP called Deep Down.
