Yoshinori Ono Reportedly Out of the Fighting Game Division for Capcom

It appears that Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite's poor turnout is now having effects internally at Capcom as Yoshinori Ono has been demoted. According to Event Hubs, Ono took a demotion to a lesser job that isn't in any authoritative role in the division while Ryozo Tsujimoto (Monster Hunter) has taken over. It's not the first time Ono has stepped down as they have documented his many role changes within the company over the years for various reasons and his return at times when titles like Street Fighter V were red hot. But it appears this recent change comes from the failure of MvCI from becoming a top fighting game.

Yoshinori Ono Reportedly Out of the Fighting Game Division for Capcom

We personally would rather throw the blame on the partnership between Marvel and Capcom, as we reported that the look of the game along with the way certain characters were portrayed was clearly limited to what Marvel would allow. There's a lot of what this game could and should have been that you could probably directly link to Disney heads dictating how their IP's were managed and how they appeared. But that's just our opinion on the matter.
