Breaking News: Yoshinori Ono Hospitalized

The official Japanese Capcom blog has revealed that Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) producer, Yoshinori Ono, has been hospitalized.

According to the statement, Ono will not be performing his regular duties at Capcom for now due to health concerns. This comes off the heels of SFxT promotion in Asia. We'll have more news on Ono's condition when it becomes available.

Here's what the blog states (translated by Event Hubs):

"I would like to bring something else to everyone's attention. Shortly after the Street Fighter X Tekken promotion in Asia Ono-san's physical condition rapidly and heavily deteriorated and he had to be taken to the hospital."

"Because of his hospital tenure he will not be performing work-related affairs for a while. Ono's well-being is very important to us and we wish for his steady recovery."
