SSFIV Producer Talks About Possible Firtness Spin Offs

Oh my, Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono has commented on the unlikely application of motion control in future Street Fighter titles, but mentioned that spin off titles of the franchises orientated around fitness using motion control may well happen:
“I’ve been interested in motion-sensing for a while, ever since Wii was launched."

“But I don’t think it fits the way Street Fighter is played at the moment. It does broaden the appeal to casual users simply because of the instinctive controls, but it just doesn’t quite fit an intricately balanced game such as Street Fighter."

“Now, there is a possibility of doing something called Street Fighter Fit, or Street Fighter Exercise, that is more suited for motion-sensing games, but that would obviously be a slightly different-themed game."

“So what we would like to do is lower the entry barrier for those who have never played the fighting genre before so we can convey that fighting games are a good tool, a good fun thing to have per family. That’s what I’ll be thinking about in the next few months.”
Super Street Fighter IV is due for a release at the end of this month on April 27th in the US and April 30th in the UK on Xbox 360 and PS3.
