In other Street Fighter V news, Ono says Capcom will soon announce a re-start date for the Street Fighter V PlayStation 4 beta for North American and Latin America. The beta had a rocky rollout last month.

It was originally scheduled to launch on July 23. When it went live, however, players began to report problems. Capcom repeatedly reset and rebooted its servers, but to no avail. The beta was later abandoned, with Capcom assuring fans it "will be extending the beta period to make up for the issues we've been experiencing."

Street Fighter V launches in spring 2016 for PS4 and PC. Cross-platform play between the two platforms will be supported.
