Capcom Discusses the Future of Mega Man

The darkest hour is just before the dawn. For Mega Man fans, that darkness came over the past three years, as one of the most iconic and recognizable characters in gaming history has been on ice, with two cancelled projects and seemingly no further interest from its publisher.

Like many things in the video game industry, appearances can be deceiving. According to one of its key executives, Capcom's inactivity with Mega Man wasn't driven by vendetta, but by a struggle to determine the franchise's future. "After the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 and Universe, there was a cooling down period where even discussing the prospect of a Mega Man title was difficult," admits Christian Svensson, Senior Vice President of Capcom USA. "The wounds were still fresh for us (just as they were for fans). We’re at a point now where it’s not as painful and constructive discussions are happening again."

The story is too old to be commented.

in a nutshell: Megaman has no future.

SFxMM exists because a fan is making it for free.

Mega Man does have a future if you read the article throughly. C'mon people, stop trolling. Christ. It's getting old already.

The "nes megaman1's mega man" character in SFXT and the Xover game on the iOS are the last nails in the coffin.

Capcom are the ones who troll megaman fans.

Who's trolling? Capcom?

They've spent YEARS trolling the Megaman fanbase, including his SFxT appearance. Why should anybody believe anything they have to say on the subject? Games that were all but ready were canceled.

And it's not been JUST with Megaman that Capcom has been less than upfront with fans.

So who's trolling who?

Wouldn't MMxSF exist because Mega Man DOES have a future? After all, if it was something fan made then Capcom could always shut it down. Them not doing that shows that they still want Mega Man around.

T_T but megaman legends was sooo good.

It's like I'm being c**k blocked by red-tape. I know MegaMan Legends 1+2 is "technically" possible on PSN. That's why it's all the more torturous to know it's being held back by litigation hell.

At least they're talking about trying to do something with the franchise. It's a start but it'll take a lot to win back their fans.
