Legendary Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono has revealed that the publisher is starting development on a “new fighting game,” and are in the process of hiring for their “Tokyo or Osaka Studio.”
Ono made the announcement on his Twitter account last night, saying:
I want…. no, Capcom wants Game Designer and programer for New Fighting Game. Its location at Tokyo or Osaka Studio. http://t.co/kqkLjSnWtl

While answering questions about the new fighting game, Ono added that “I don’t know that our target platform,” and that he “can’t speak” on whether it is for next or current-gen consoles. He also stated that his team is “making preparation for development in just now.”
Considering that active development has not yet started, it will likely be at least a year before we hear exactly what Capcom is cooking up under Ono’s watchful eye.
