Capcom has just released the first screenshots of Mega Man Universe.
I'm still a little confused about the overall direction of this title, but I'm interested.
I'm also curious what the direction is. That teaser trailer featuring all those Capcom characters had me (and actually everyone) wondering... These screenshots look like a normal Mega Man game, with a more advanced art style. But I can't shake the feeling that I don't like this art style. Maybe I am just stuck in the past, but I much prefer the flat 2D visuals to 3D models and such. Can't wait to hear more about it, though :D
The idea here is simple: Mix classic Megaman, Little Big Planet, and Other Capcom Universe character powers in a blender. Throw in a hint of Kirby power stealing and boom - Megaman Universe. Supposedly you can create levels and share them with friends. Also you can gain powers like Ryu's fireball/dragon punch and Rad Spencer's bionic arm (Bionic Commando). I was hoping for Megaman Legends 3 or something but I'll keep holding my breath.
Megaman Legends 3 would be fantastic. The first, second, and the Misadventures of Tron Bonne were my favorite games of the PS1 generation. Bubbles to you :)
I'm totally interested! just think about it, this kind of game is MUCH BETTER than another battle network thing! Judging from the gameplay video, megaman's health bar and UI is so cramped that I think there's just enough place for 3 other UI like that one, so maybe a 4 player LBP-style megafied game!!?!??!?!?!?!
I have really good memories with Mega Man Battle Network 2, especially. I suppose I'm one of the few and proud folks that actually really loves the Battle Network series still.
is the game dated yet?
NO, i don't think so, but i could be wrong.
i am looking forward to the title myself, i have bought almost every Mega Man game so far.
bring back the x series i was never into the regular megaman
To be honest, I don't even like Megaman. Zero, on the other hand, is a total badass! One of my favorite videogame characters of all time.
i like the retro look like the current ones but with a hd look. game editor please
I WANT (-MEGAMAN LEGENDS 3-) NOW
While I don't agree with your opinion of Capcom, I share your enthusiasm for a new Megaman Legends title. Please, please Capcom.... one more Legends game before I die....
This looks pretty good.
The game looks great. I'd love to have a Mega Man game with the 2d side scrolling, but offering the best sound and graphics the PS3 and 360 can do. :)
im totally dissapointed ;( , i was expecting something great; megaman its nothing like megaman 2, 3 or 4 ;(
The Third screenshot looks like the megaman from the european boxarts, interesting.
Cutting edge graphics! :DDD Milking the cash cow...
