After news that he had been rushed to hopital, Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono has taken to social media site Twitter to explain that he will be taking a break from work.

He thanked fans for their continued support, and apologised for having made everyone worry.

“I caused you so much worry for a while”, Ono-san wrote. “I went back to work. [The Street Fighter] team are working wholeheartedly on patches for Street Fighter X Tekken. Please wait just a little longer.

“I apologise for that. And thanks for a lot of get-well messages! I’ll refrain from work [on my] current job for a while. Another person [is] in charge of the Street Fighter series for a while. Of course I’ll [give] constant support to it.

“I’ll be out of the limelight [of] fighting game series for a while. I’ll think about the new future of fighting games after this.”
