Street Fighter legend and all-around diamond geezer Yoshinori Ono has assumed the role of corporate officer at Capcom.
Ono-san will remain in his current position as the Japanese publisher’s chief of consumer games R&D division, however.
The legendary developer has been in the spotlight quite a lot in the past couple of years, promoting Street Fighter IV, and later its expansions Super Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
It was during a promo tour of Street Fighter x Tekken, however, that Ono-san was hospitalized and forced to take some time out of his busy schedule. He soon recovered, however, and continues to remain the public face of Capcom.
His most recent major appearance was at the PlayStation 4 reveal event in New York City in February.
