Peter Rosas, probably better known for his professional fighting game handle of Combofiend, has announced that he has left Capcom. Rosas started at Capcom as a community manager and most recently worked as a producer on Street Fighter V and Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.
During his fighting game career, Rosas was famous for popularizing Spencer in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and, specifically, Spencer’s super move of the Bionic Arm. Rosas changed the game for Spencer by showing how the Bionic Arm could best be used as a quick and vicious counter to an approaching enemy, or even as a ridiculous follow-up to a huge combo.
Rosas also voice-acted the cop, Peter, in Street Fighter V’s story mode, who basically only existed to get beaten up. Earlier in the year, Rosas was caught off-guard during an interview on the subject of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite and its relationship with X-Men characters. Rosas made the claim that people only liked the functions of those characters and that the functions would be well-represented, which did not sit well with fans of Wolverine and Magneto throughout the Marvel games, and lead to the joke of “Function vs. Function” becoming a meme about the title.
He has not indicated where he will head next. Rosas’ goodbye post can be found at the source link.

Rosas is a good guy and I beat him at Marvel once. He almost certainly let me win, but there’s like a one percent chance I won legitimately and I am holding on to that bit like grim death.
