Mega man anyone :D??lets fund this guys.

Edit;Hopefully scamcom doesn't get in the way of this by filing a lawsuit.

Bit weird though, aiming for 2015 but the stretch goals are for PS3 and 360.

zeal0us1906d ago

If the stretch goal of 2.5m is reach, they should just stick with a X1, PS4 and WiiU version rather than a PS3 and 360 version.

Also I hope it's more like the X series than just the classic games.

CarlosX3601906d ago

What? Really? That's far beyond what I expect from Mega Man.

Redempteur1905d ago

implying you won't dust off your ps3/360 to play this game?

I'm doing pretty bad financially right now, but I have 5 dollars for this:)

Majin-vegeta1906d ago

Every little bit helps man :).

Studio-YaMi1906d ago


Megaman like project deserves every spare penny you have ! ;___;

Shame that Japanese devs from some of our beloved franchises are having a hard time finding investors. I saw some ex King of Fighters staff have on up as well a while ago.

RockmanII71905d ago (Edited 1905d ago )

Their game looks to be doing fine too, so that's a plus.

Deadpoolio1905d ago

Yes cause it is completely Capcom's fault that they don't want to spend millions of dollars to make a game that would sell less than 250,000 copies....Good thing you don't own a business...

BTW they wont file a lawsuit, they will send a cease and desist letter because it is a Mega Man rip off

zeal0us1905d ago (Edited 1905d ago )

They can only file a lawsuit or send a cease and desist letter if Inafune was using MM assets or infringing on their intellectual property. Having a similar concept or the same concept as MM isn't enough to win a case.

Just look a Gameloft they're the kings of game clone but yet they never been hit with a cease and desist letter or lawsuit.

DragonKnight1905d ago

They can't file a C&D for a spiritual successor. It's akin to remixing but far more legal because remixing tends to use the original source material but this won't.

Also, I could have sword that Inafune was one of the reasons that Megaman Legends 3 was cancelled. Bit odd that he'd go for this if he had no interest in Megaman while he was still at Capcom.

Sevir1905d ago

Is that why Sony and Atlus hasnt filed a lawsuit or C&D with From Software and Namco with Dark Souls IP given that its a clear "Rip off" of Demon's Souls? its an orginal IP that builds on the core or the one that it was inspired by, thats why its called a spiritual successor and not a Sequel. 100% legal, and given that Rock Man was Keiji's Brain Child he's got every right to take cues from the IP he created 20 years ago and make it relevant again by creating a spiritual successor since capcom simply wont support Mega Man. Im gonna support Comcept, I hope Sony Publishes this and gives him the resourse to make this a PS4/PSVita game as comcept is a japanese indie dev, and we all know sony loves indies. His last work which was Soul Sacrifice was awesome.

BlaqMagiq241905d ago

It's not using ANY of Mega Man's assets. Capcom can't file a cease and desist order because there's nothing they can do about it.

lizard812881905d ago


Inafune Left Capcom, hoping they would finish the game, but instead they canceled it.

Dear Mr. Inafune...

Lboogieskells1906d ago

great news!

please help the man behind our beloved series kickstart a brand new one inspired by old school side scrolling games.

Lboogieskells1906d ago

Let me see one more indie joke and I'm going psycho!

majiebeast1906d ago (Edited 1906d ago )

I still would like a Megaman battle network 3 sort of game, cause we know Capcom isnt gonna do it.

Playstation fans tweet the guy in charge of Sony third party publishing and get this game on PS4 and Vita.

Quicktopick1906d ago (Edited 1906d ago )

Nvm u just said what i wanna say lol =)

XabiDaChosenOne1905d ago

And here I though I was the only man on the face of the earth who is a huge fan of the battle network series. It's great not being alone *cyber hug

majiebeast1905d ago

Fantastic games till the DS one's where they changed the view of battle.
