Ono wants Nintendo vs Capcom

Contemplates pitching to Smash Bros. man.

Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has gone on record as saying he would love to work on a Nintendo vs. Capcom beat 'em up.

Ono, who is currently adding the finishing touches to Super Street Fighter IV for the 3DS, told Cubed3 that a digital dust-up between the two publisher's stable of characters should be pitched to Nintendo and Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai.

The obvious question here is, why on Earth hasn't the concept been mooted by Capcom already? Kirby vs Blanka would be a system seller, surely?

The next cross-universe throwdown from Capcom will be Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 18th February. Following that, fight fans have then got Tekken x Street Fighter to look forward to.
