PlayStation Exec Talks PS4 Street Fighter 5 Exclusivity
"I guess you could say Street Fighter's natural home is on PlayStation."
Speaking today in London, Gara said he didn't have a hand in forging the deal with Capcom, but said he believes the Street Fighter franchise's "natural home" is on PlayStation.
"I wasn't involved, so how it came about I can't comment on, but I think it's another fantastic example of how our heritage provides some fantastic opportunities not just to reminisce but to look forward as well," Gara explained to IGN.
"Obviously it's a classic from earlier PlayStation days, but now it's being reintroduced for the PS4 era," he added. "It was a huge hit on PlayStation, so I guess you could say Street Fighter's natural home is on PlayStation. Now, I'm delighted that's going to happen again in this cycle."
Street Fighter V is also coming to PC, and cross-platform play will be supported. Capcom has not announced a release date for Street Fighter V nor has it confirmed the game's fighter roster yet.
