Capcom...its time to admit you made a HUGE MISTAKE w/ Megaman

Mighty No. 9's Kickstarter was a huge success, and rightfully so! But what this also shows, is that gamers have an immense desire for more Megaman-like, and why do you believe that is? Well, Capcom has failed gamers, and Megaman. And its time that they admit their mistakes and make a change. But lets go over the latest moves on Capcom's part, where they have completely ignored gamer input for Megaman. (3DS, Capcom, Dev, Mega Man Legends 3, Mighty No. 9, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Mighty No 9 actually gets me more worried for Megaman because if(When) Mighty No 9 succeeds Capcom will likely respond with a rush job Megaman game. Just so that they can bleed out your wallet with yet another huge disappointment.

The Kickstarter numbers do appear to show that Capcom are pretty big idiots for not releasing new Mega Man content.

BUT, upon closer inspection, you can see that only 67,000 people donated to the Kickstarter. So while $4 mill is quite impressive, a retail release that only sold 67,000 copies would be a huge disappointment.

So how could you accurately translate Kickstarter numbers to a game that releases on its own at retail or digitally? You can't. We'll never know how much a Mega Man game that looks exactly like Mighty No. 9 would've sold

Um, maybe people who didn't contribute to kick starter will buy it. Just because 67,000 people contributed doesn't mean others won't purchase the game. I didn't contribute, and I'll get the game when it comes out. A lot of us adults don't have time to go on the internet and fund projects on kick starter. We have mortgages, children, jobs, social lives...doesn't mean we won't purchase a good game. We just don't fund projects.

I agree, 4mil seems a lot but when some people donated over $100 dollars, it's easy to see how it got so much money. On the other hand, if Capcom release a MM game of PSN/XBLA for $10 and 67000 people buy it, that's only like $670,000. Really not enough for capcom to invest in another MM game considering the Mighty no 9 needed $900,000 to even start -_-

Some donated over $100
If we can take the kickstarter's word, then i think about 4 people paid 10.000 for a dinner with the creator of megaman!
That being said, i think it's a start for a new franchise and a new company
They already name themselves "Comcept"
I really curious to see where this goes
I'll def buy it

Started from the bottom now we're here... I would really like to see what capcom has to say about this. And cap has a tin of money. 4 mil aint shit, ntm what happened to doing/making things bc they are fun. I understand that people generally go into business to make money but sometimes there are things with more than making a simple buck if ooh a rehash of the same game over and over street fighter 4..... dont get me wrong I live the sf franchise and own most of the games but what is the real reason mm hadn't seen proper love

"Capcom...its time to admit you made a HUGE MISTAKE w/ Megaman" lol there more likely to sue before the ever admit making mistakes

If Capcom has no plans to do anything with Mega Man, why do they even still want him? I say sell the franchise to Nintendo.
