Xbox One and PS4, But Not Wii U, Eventually Getting Street Fighter

Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono said that PS4 and Xbox One would get a Street Fighter at "some time or other," but didn't offer much hope for Wii U.

We know it has to happen at some point, but Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono, who was producer on Street Fighter IV, confirmed that current-gen consoles are going to get a Street Fighter game...eventually.

Responding to fan on Twitter that asked, "Are we going to get a Street Fighter game on the Xbox One and PS4?" Ono wrote: "Hahaha, some time or other..." But fans hoping for a Wii U version are out of luck, Ono also wrote, "I apologize that we don't have plans for Wii U... ."

That doesn't mean that Ono is necessarily working on the project directly, however. Ono is currently working as a producer on Deep Down, though he recently stepped down from directing the Capcom Vancouver studio and he remarked that a theoretical Street Fighter V will not be pay-to win.

The last iteration of the franchise was Ultra Street Fighter IV, which took a staggered release with physical and digital versions releasing at separate times earlier this year.

Most of this moot anyway until XBOX releases a decent fightpad or a fightstick that doesn't cost 200 dollars.  I have Killer Instinct and barely play it since I don't feel like paying an extra $200.

It would be sick if Nintendo picked up the sequel to Eternal Darkness made by the creators.  I know they extended their IP on it saying they have something in the works.  Nintendo at this point should say screw 3rd party support, we will release 1st party masterpieces and indie gems.  Wii U + a Luigi's Mansion 2, Metroid, Star Fox, Zelda, Mario Galaxy 3, Mega Man, No More Heroes 3, de blob 3, conduit 3.. punch out, Super Monkey Ball etc.. If they cranked out their IP's, no one would stand a chance, they are the best first party producer.

Wiiu is dead. Let's be honest. I own one and enjoy my Nintendo exclusives, but I haven't seen little to no release since the GameCube days. I mean even that system had third parties from time to time.

Third party devs are being way to unprofessional where the wii u is concerned i don't want to support them any more. I don't really need to either as there are pleny of great exclusives on wii u and xbox one. I am gonna adviod third parties apart from ones who put there games on wii u

Why the hell would any Nintendo fan care about Street Fighter when we have Super Smash Bros?  Why can I scroll down 50 comments and no one makes a reference to Smash Bros?  We don't want your crappy fighter game.  Give it to Xbox and PS4.  We got our own fighting game and it's way better.

Nintendo needs to get more exclusives if they want to compete. I bet it is because DLC don't sell well on Wii U.

Nintendo got Street Fighter, DOA, and Tekken on 3DS, yet they can't get those games on Wii U? Hardware power has nothing to do with it, because fighting games don't rely on hardware power, and 3DS is weaker than Xbox 360.

tendoboy1984

That's ridiculous. DOA and Tekken are coming to PS4 and Xbox One. What's taking Capcom so long to bring Street Fighter?

Also, Capcom made Super Street Fighter 4 for 3DS, and that system sold poorly at first.

Capcom made Street Fighter 4 for 3DS when it wasn't selling well.

Wow another publisher drops the failing Wii U Nintendo should be getting real worried and fans of the failed system are starting to have trouble defending it.

This news does piss me off a bit, especially seeing as it was Nintendo who originally homed the franchise on home consoles.

1.) No one buys a Wii U for anything but Mario games, they might buy others for it... but c'mon... no one rushes out to get the new nintendo system expecting third party games anymore.

2.) Screw Street Fighter, yeah I said it. Those games have sucked an unbelievable amount since Capcom vs SNK left the scene. I'll stick with DOA and Virtua Fighter, since they seem to be the only fighting games left concerned about a real fighting system. SFIV's was a JOKE.

It sounds like they don't have any plans for Gen 8 Street Fighter period.

This probably shows how much I';ve aged but I have multiple copies of SF4 - I can't even beat that bullshit Tyrant-abomination-move-thief boss in arcade mode. Used to be good at SF. And that'smy extent of caring about the game and franchise any longer. Have SS4 arcade edition and I'll buy ultra when it's 2 dollars.

This is uncalled for. SF4 is already on like 3, 4, something systems.


Just stop it.

Another point supporting that the WiiU inferior hardware has to do with the lack of support from third parties. It becomes more evident as the months go by.

Has a Nintendo home console had a street fighter game since the snes? I know all their handheld have had a version but I believe the Nintendo home consoles have always been completely snubbed (Not counting vc versions of the snes games). 

I played a ton of street fighter 2 on the snes. For me it was one of the most defining games on the system. I was very disappointed that the n64 never got a version. Especially when they even bothered releasing a mediocre version on the gameboy. I like Street fighter 4 more than any of the earlier versions and the 3ds has a good port of ssf4 (Which I believe sold well). Would have been nice to get to on wii U.

When we're on the subject of beat em ups on wii u. Does any have any opinions of Tekken tag tournament 2 on wii u. I own it, but I'm not a tekken expert. I've only played tekken 6 on psp and tt2 on wii u. I like tekken on psp far more. Is this because the wii u versions a bad port (I believe it's not a good port because the menu screen animations stall and jitter and the loading screens are irritatingly long). The game feels somehow sluggish next to the psp game. I don't think it's the frame rate, but it might be slightly laggy controls. I can't tell because I'm not an expert and I'm not sure how tekken tt2 should feel. Maybe it's just the nature of the game.

Super Ultra Street Fighter 4 Extreme Plus Alpha Championship Edition (Remaster) come to a PS4/X1 near you with the same content as the last revision released on PS3/PC/360 but with added 4 additional characters and costumes that should of been in that version but couldn't fit to limited restrictions (the boss at the top said so)

The Wii U isn't missing anything. It's only Super Street Fighter 4 extreme mega millennium edition with extra characters that 75% of the community won't bother to use/master.

@tendoboy1984 The wii u has tekken tag tournament 2. Nintendo home consoles haven't had a proper street fighter game since the snes (Not counting vc). All their handhelds have had a version.

@Defender1978 thats the smartest comment here. an nintendo is retarded for not doing so. when they had the opportunity in the past.   also all the other good series capcom makes.      plus capcom shouldn't blackball wii u for the fighting game market.     the system has the power to play the game. just capcom being dumbasses...    just buy them nintendo an make them your First party exclusives. such a no brainer....

@Merseyak Nintendo knows more about how to run a business than any of these amateur companies we have today which is why they last from 1889 til now and still going strong. Sony, Sega, Microsoft, Atari, all of them were from the mid to late 1900s and right now some of them are having financial troubles.

@Merseyak Of course they have unless you are 160. They've been around since your great grand parents were kids and no I'm not being sarcastic.

If thé Wii U is dead, then there isn't much hope for the Xbox One as the Wii U is out sealing it. P.S. please don't say it was out for a whole year before the Xbone argument because it didn't slow the PS4 down and they have about the same lineup of games with a few exclusive, and it sold over 10 million units to consumers the Wii U 7 mill sold to consumers Xbox 5 mill (this is a guess because MS will only tell you how many units it shipped to retail stores not sold to consumers) these are facts.

@xolivierx Back in the turbo days before the 39 arcade iterations and Capcom ruined it all.

Then why did 3DS get Super Street Fighter 4? It's weaker than Xbox 360 and PS3. Fighting games don't rely on hardware power.

@Nev3rtime Gamecube had SNK vs Capcom and Wii had Tatsunoko vs Capcom if that counts for anything.

tekken 6 sucks. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a great game on wii u. the nintendo only costumes are cool and online play is solid . I have the Fight Stick to go with it.

@Nev3rtime Pretty sure N64 and GC didn't so I can only assume GC and Wii didn't but Wii had a million games, it's possible.

Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, Wind Waker HD, with more coming next year.

You're missing out on a bunch of games.

@sanchango Well, they scream "juvenile". Since Wii buyers have grown 4 years and are on their 14-15 now it makes perfect sense.

@sanchango @xolivierx @Selindrile @3dmatrixgamer @howiex89 And Zombii u. Pretty sure Wii also had CoD and Fatal Frame etc. Nintendo has always had violent games - remember the red Doom cartridge on SNES. Or Turok, Or Goldeneye. Or Doom 64.
