Video Game Foresight - The Blue Bomber Hangs Up His Helmet

It's hard to believe that Mega Man—or Rockman, if you will—has been around for almost two and a half decades now. Yes, the original Mega Man game came out for the NES back in 1987, introducing the world to some of the worst cover art that's ever been seen. But at the time, the core concept behind the game was so completely groundbreaking that we all rushed out to buy the game anyway, despite the condescending looks we got from store clerks upon seeing the hideous-looking box in our hands.--CheatCC

RIP Rock Man :(. Seriously Inafune needs to buy the franchise and get it as far away from Capcom as humanly possible.

Seems like Capcom is the place where franchises go to die. Onimusha, Viewtiful Joe, now Mega Man who arguably made Capcom who they are today. They are really epitomizing fail this gen.

I think Inafune and capcom left on bad terms. He even sh*tted on capcom after he left.

I think this is capcoms way of getting him back.

Inafune feels awful about it. He has made an official apology:

“The decision for the cancelation was out of my sphere, but as someone who took part in the development, I’d like to convey something to the staff: I’m sorry that I couldn’t be of assistance. [To the fans of the series,] I’m truly sorry I couldn’t take part through the end.”
