Street Fighter producer says "if there's an opportunity that makes sense," they'll do more series entries for Switch

Now seems like a good opportunity

When it comes to classic Street Fighter games, the Switch has seen its fair share. On the flip-side, the Switch hasn't gotten anything when it comes to newer installments. Is there any chance of that changing? Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono talked to USGamer about plans going forward.

Since the Switch came out, we’ve released Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for that platform. From a business standpoint, these two titles were a success. We are seeing many competitive titles, including Smash Bros., doing well on Switch and players are enjoying those types of experiences on that platform. If there is another opportunity that makes sense for us, we would consider the Switch again. Regarding Street Fighter 5, it is currently exclusive to PS4 and PC. However, as mentioned above, we do see Switch as an important platform for all types of games.

Soccer star shows off his custom Street Fighter Adidas X 17.1s

Sweet kicks

German soccer star Lukas Podolski is a huge fan of Street Fighter. He's such fan that just playing the game isn't enough for him. He needs to show off his love of the series when out on the pitch. That's why he had shoe artist Pierre Navarro give his Adidas X 17.1s a radical makeover, which you can see above. I'd say these shoes are too damn nice to wear anywhere!
