Street Fighter producer and Capcom developer Yoshinori Ono has announced that he will be resigning from the company he's worked with for almost 30 years this summer.

"If you want to know the truth, I was copying you sisters. But, to be honest, this bewildered me," he said in regards to the conflict between he and Capcom USA, revealing on Twitter that he first voiced his displeasure publicly a few months ago.
