Ah Mega Man. The name has become synonymous for the fuel of internet rage for many; the poor Blue Bomber seems to never catch a break. Whether it has to do with cancelled games, misuse in cross-over games, or even what appears to be a lack of respect when it comes to his own anniversary; see the poor reception Mega Man Xover got with many long time fans when it was first announced. The demo didn’t help matters and it got so bad that those die-hard enthusiasts recreated the game in less then 24 hours just to spite Capcom in an attempt to show how poor it is; that is some dedication!

Well this may or may not calm those fans down as the November issue of Nintendo Power contained an interview with Capcom’s Senior Vice President, Christian Svensson and Community Manager Brett Elston which had an interesting tidbit:

Nintendo Power: What does the future hold for Mega Man?

Christian Svensson: I can say with certainty that you’ve not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we’ll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you’re going to enjoy over the next 25 years. That said, an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details.

So is this finally Mega Man’s salvation? Well actions speak louder then words and after all this drama,  I personally need to see it to believe it. Though I might actually give them the benefit of the doubt this time, as they have shown improvement with releases like Dragon’s Dogma, localization announcements for both Monster Hunter 3G and Ace Attorney 5, as well as publishing the new IP Remember Me. There is some room for improvement; personally I’d rather have Ex Troopers and not Lost Planet 3, but I digress. Hopefully Capcom truly means what they’re saying and something amazing comes about from this. What do you all think?

We aren’t confirming or denying anything, this is all that Capcom USA has to say about the matter so who knows if something will occur.

  • Yeah, at this point, I’m not going to believe that they’re actually going to release a Mega Man game UNTIL they release a mega man game. (not just announce it.)

  • so that means they are gonna make more games for iOS and now for steam? Cause I cannot picture a true Mega Man game anymore without Inafune

    •  iOS is not a handheld and Steam-running-on-a-PC is not a console

  • 50th Anniversary
    Capcom: What the heck’s a Mega Man?

    In all seriousness, they’re going to have to give more than their word.

  • Lester Paredes

    More Mega Man is good. Less Mega Man is bad. I wish they’d make MM9 and 10 available for Download onto my Vita.

    • Sniper D. Luffy

      i can live with that…been wanting to play MM9 and 10 for a while

    • Bob

      True. That’d be good for a Vita or 3DS release.

  • Sniper D. Luffy

    assuming AA5 won’t get canned for US release at any point…this is a nice direction to follow for Capcom…

  • Megaman games haven’t really hit the critical cesspool of terribleness that sonic has so I’m confident that megaman games will continue to come out.
