Street Fighter X Mega Man: 5 Reasons You Should Be Excited

WC - Considering the abysmal depths Capcom has plunged the Mega Man franchise into, I was absolutely shocked to see a trailer pop-up for a Capcom-endorsed fan game that combined the company’s two most storied franchises, and it looked good! Coming out of nowhere, this 8-bit tribute looks to be one of the best additions either property has seen in a while.

Since it happens to be the twenty-fifth anniversary of both the Mega Man and Street Fighter brands, this seems like the most unlikely yet obvious pairing that should occur. With a release date set for this December 17th on the PC, fans have an early Christmas gift they get to unwrap. Here are five reasons you should be excited for this collision of classic gaming icons. (PC, Street Fighter X Mega Man)

I love how the upcoming SF X MM is going to be a classic retro sidescroller in the vein of awesome NES games, and apparently will feature Street Fighter chars as end-level bosses!
