Remember Me to get advice from Street Fighter director

Although Remember Me didn't start life as a Capcom project, it's slowly turning into one, now that the Japanese publisher has picked up the rights to the game. In fact, Capcom isn't just publishing the game--it's collaborating with developer Dontnod Entertainment by giving them access to Yoshinori Ono, producer of the Street Fighter franchise.
"It's a bit like the situation Capcom has with [Devil May Cry developer] Ninja Theory," Capcom's Mat Hart explained. "The strategy of western development is building teams together--Capcom and a developer coming together and making a game together."
Ono's influence will be best seen in the game's melee combat system, which is combo-based. There's already some Capcom-esque flair in the game, with finishing moves and dodges. However, "what we tried to is keep those combos as accessible as possible so they don't take too much skill to perform," creative director Jean-Maxime Moris told Eurogamer. "It's fair to say Capcom fans are going to enjoy this game," he added.
