Be afraid. Be very afraid...

They could do well with mega man by taking it the way of the metroid prime trilogy. Or it could do well set up like a more platform oriented ratchet and clank type game. It's either of those or they leave it 2d side scrolling.

Whats most likely is 2d and one of the others.
Godmars290  +   1020d ago
It needs to be a decent quality 2D platformer on PSN/XBL at around $20-$30, but the way that market's structured with a $10 limit and Flash-like tools that's never going to happen.

I mean imagine this game with more animations and art style from the latest KOF:

Edit:
Who thought BloodRyne Betrayal was a fugly game with fugly mechanics the first time they saw it? Besides me of course.

I want it to be fast paced and 2D like MMX used to be. Dash, jump, shoot! Or 3D in 3rd person like Megaman Legends but never in First Person like Metroid Prime. I mean, why turn MM into a FPS anyway? They been trying to turn MM into an RPG with the recent handheld tittles and I really don't like that either.... =/

It's going to be that fat Megaman from Street Fighter or they'll completely reboot Megaman and make him something like a Mario rip off.

Megaman X series didnt need a reboot yet they still screwed that up.

Capcom made a total mockery of megaman franchise and it fans.

First canceling megaman legends 3.
Not including megaman in marvel vs Capcom 3.
Including the COVER OF MEGAMAN 1 of the nes for SFXTK (Lolz Capcom so funnih)

Now finally celebrating 25th anniversary of megaman by announcing MEGAH MAN XOVER FOR TEH IPHONEZ!!1!

Just let the blue bomber rest in peace, or sell the IP to another company who might give the franchise it justice.

More to do with MML3 for me. Them asking for fan support, a specific level and getting it, then canceling the game regardless. With some douche in the company blaming those same fans.

That was just insulting.

I bet it will be a mess of a reboot.

It does need a reboot

They probably just have iphone sequels -_-, knowing Capcom you have to set your expectations low, and then lower them because you might have put them to high the first time.

Incoming generic third person shooter
CalvinKlein  +   1020d ago
Well I hope we get to see an AWESOME 2d megamanX game or MML 3 on the vita!
Wolfbiker  +   1020d ago
MEGA MAN FPS....you know, to appeal to the American audience.
Captain Qwark 9  +   1020d ago
well to be fair, legends was a tps and those are two of the best megaman games ever created so a fps could def work and work well.

id still prefer 2d or 3rd though
Wolfbiker  +   1020d ago
i was being sarcastic and yeah i know legends was a third person shooter mostly...but more like an adventure game in my opinion.
princejb134  +   1020d ago
thats a opinion
i didnt enjoy legends as much
my favorite megaman games were megaman x,x4,x5 and x6
Griffin4871  +   1020d ago
Uhhh yea no FPS.

..CoD fanboy.

Notice how the games that the producer left (Mega Man, DmC) went to either a new developer or just got left on the back burner?

I think this is a good idea especially for some companies who don't know how to continue the creative vision the original producer had for the series.
josephayal  +   1020d ago
I've never seen MEGA MAN in HD
MasterCornholio  +   1020d ago
I hope that the next time we see megaman will be in a new legends game. Yes I know that they canceled t for the 3DS by it would be nice to see it.

I don't have high expectations with Megaman and Capcom. If megaman was a truly valued asset, He would've been in MVC3 in the first place and not have all his games cancelled.

A Megaman Legends 1-2 HD REMAKE would be nice.

Though I really wouldn't want megaman westernized like how they did with DmC and RE6. The closest thing to a megaman 3rd person shooter that I've encountered was Saints Row 3 with the cyber buster weapon.
TenkoTAiLS  +   1020d ago
Stop catering to the lowest common denominator or what is currently "hot" and give us a nicely animated 2D sidescroller that's worthy to be a successor. Or continue what you started with "Powered Up" and "Maverick Hunter X" and make them PSN/Xbox Live/Nintendo Network download games since the originals didn't have the turn over you wanted in retail.

You would think they would have learned from the success of Megaman 9 & 10. People love the originals and the X series. If you don't mess with the formula too much and actually put some love, time, effort and care into it, and review the old games to learn what made them so great, that would be a great start to reviving the once great franchise.

On a side note, whatever happened to the anniversary surprise or details Capcom were supposed to be sharing for the Blue Bomber? Even an anniversary collection for current consoles, and actually releasing it in PAL territories too this time, would have been better than nothing >.<

cant wait for them to westernize Megaman, just like they did to DmC...NOT....

It's very hard for me to believe anything they say anymore.

Megaman Universe...cancelled
Megaman Online...cancelled
Megaman Legends 3...cancelled
Megaman Xover on iOS...shittier than any Megaman fan-game ever made.
Megaman not being his own character in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Capcom doesn't have many strikes left with Megaman. They need to do more than just make a Megaman game. It has to have substance, something people can play for awhile instead of in one day like previous Megamans. Do something crazy like a create your own Maverick Hunter with online co-op or something as a side story of the actual game. People wanna be excited for Megaman all over again.
Hicken  +   1020d ago
They say that cuz he'll be in Tekken X Street Fighter. They don't have any plans to release a Megaman game. They're just doing this to continue trolling the fans.
