We will have a simultaneous [Street Fighter 5] release all across the world. No region will be late, and everyone will be able to play at the same time.

On that note, Ono added that the decision of simultaneous release was also a gesture of gratitude towards Hong Kong fans who have supported the series throughout:

This is just a small expression of our gratitude to all of the people here in Hong Kong who’ve been supporting Street Fighter for so long.
