SSFIV producer heads to 3DS launch

The producer of Super Street Fighter IV Yoshinori Ono will be present at the official 3DS launch at HMV Oxford Street tomorrow night.

Ono will take part in Street Fighter battles on stage and conduct an exclusive signing to mark the launch of Nintendo’s new 3DS handheld. It goes on sale at midnight on the night of Thursday, March 24th.

“I’ll be visiting HMV’s flagship shop in London at 11pm 24th,” Ono said on Twitter, before posting an image of his Blanka Street Fighter figurine at an airport.

“I'll ride on plane to London. I’m looking forward to meet European Street Fighter fans,” he added.

Super Street Fighter IV 3D is a launch title for the 3DS.

The first 500 people in the queue at HMV Oxford Street tomorrow night will get a free 3DS game of their choice. The retailer will also open 100 UK stores nationwide to celebrate the launch of the 3DS.

A separate 3DS VIP launch event will hold 2,000 guests and will feature performances from Plan B, Hadouken, DJ Yoda and more.
