Since being discharged from Hospital in 2012, Ono has taken a sabbatical and also eased his workload greatly. Ono has produced only two games since 2012 including Street Fighter X Tekken and Ultra Street Fighter IV all for PS3, 360 and PC. His last title to release on a Nintendo platform was 2011\’s Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition for the Nintendo 3DS which was one of the systems most well-received launch titles making use of several of the system\’s unique abilities. The game managed to sell over a million units, quite a achievement for a third party launch title on a Nintendo platform, sadly one which appears to have forgotten about.
