Who is Yusuke Hashimoto? Game designer on Street Fighter 6
Yusuke Hashimoto knows the Capcom universe perfectly; including the stage in which a multitude of workers separated their paths in search of new horizons. Hashimoto joined Capcom in 1998 and worked primarily on the Resident Evil series; from the third installment through the GameCube remake, Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4. His only approach to Street Fighter dates back to 1998 with his participation as an object designer in Street Fighter Alpha 3.
It was not until 2007 that he entered PlatinumGames, an environment with many familiar faces for him and several exciting creative assignments. To highlight, the production of Bayonetta (2009) and the direction plus the character design of Bayonetta 2 (2014). Finally, in 2016 he was the director of the singular Star Fox Zero (2016) for Wii U.
