Since 2003, Ono has started his career as Producer with Chaos Legion, and then reconfirmed over the years as one of the big boys of the software house with Street Fighter IV e Street Fighter V (in spite of everything).
The tribute from Katsuhiro Harada, producer of the series, was not long in coming Tekken:
Thank you for everything Ono-san.
See you soon.
See you soon Ono-san.
