Street Fighter IV
is unlikely to have exclusive console-specific characters
(like Soul Calibur IV)
when it releases next year, the game's producer tells Videogamer
. Yoshinori Ono believes the idea of exclusive characters is unfair -- and that extends to "downloadable characters" as well.
Yoshinori expresses that this is only his "policy," however, so we won't rule out the influence of the Capcom overlords. SF IV
is expected on consoles around the time the Street Fighter movie releases in early 2009
