Hiring someone to run your gaming company who hasn't made a good gaming dev decision in 6+ years and no one at their old company liked? What could go wrong

This puts a new spin on why Sakura Kakumei is shutting down so soon if they're changing main company staff like this.

Anyway, good luck with whatever team-based fighter ends up coming out of this.

You’re basing no one liking Ono within Capcom based on what?

The same “fan” subjective speculation as him not making good decisions at his job?

Plus if you’re using his last 6 years at Capcom mostly centered around his work on SFV and MvCI (which you know good and well was not all his fault) against him never mind the fact he has 28 years of experience in the industry and has worked on numerous games and in numerous positions. You’re pretty much admitting not only is this a shallow take you have no understanding of how a business works.

I remember how people used to LOVE him just for getting Street Fighter 4 MADE since Capcom had let it be a dead series for a decade. It really is terrible how unforgiving a fan base can be...

Pretty much I mean I get he did make some decisions on these projects that were not popular amongst fans of these projects. But there have been much worse people in this industry that have committed far greater sins deserving of condemnation and the like particularly things involving real people and you’re bothered by a guy because he oversaw things like nerfing you’re favorite character or making the games more accessible and stuff like that?
