Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono responds to complaints regarding Mega Man’s controversial character design and concerns over guest characters taking too much space in Street Fighter X Tekken
I wonder if this is what he wanted to reveal for this month cause I was expecting something more original.
Think about it like this. Bad Box Art Megaman has not been on a game cover for 25 years. He just got fat from sitting around doing nothing. In itself that really is original.
Naw, after his newest game was cancelled, he got depressed and started eating heavily.
Megaman was always a chubby little ****
WOW...... just wow lol and people complained about the new dante look. I dont know what the hell is going on at capcom
I thought Cole looks bad enough! but after Dante, it's not really a surprise that Capcom would mess up the look of their other characters!
This is Street Fighter X Tekken. Therefore any other characters outside of the Street Fighter and Tekken universes are strictly bonuses. They don't have to be serious additions unless the game is called "Capcom X Namco". So people just need to calm down. Original Mega Man art: http://upload.wikimedia.org... For those who are completely oblivious.
they really messed up megaman in this one megaman is one of my favorite capcom characters of all time but in the second pic hes holding a gun up-_-
mmm i guess you havent been a megaman fan for too long, because you would be well aware of the infamous box arts in the earlier games. This character is kind of a joke about the box art of those games
Is there something Crapcom is doing right this gen?
3DS support done right. Basically it imho
@firefoxprime Like only having only one save file on Resident Evil Mercenaries that you can't erase.
Yup, SFIV. Im not a fan of all the DLC from Capcom (my nickname for them is Cashcom because of it) but fighting games have made a comeback with SFIV. I thought fighting games were a dying breed until that game was released and now look at how many fighting games are being made again. So whether you like, love or hate Capcom, I do like them this generation just for fighting games alone.
yea say whatever you want , they made fighting games relevant again in the mainstream
are People actually complaining about Megaman??????????????????????? WTF! this is a joke characteer why the hell do people care? if you want a normal megaman play Tatsunoku vs Capcom and shut the hell up. this megaman fits the ugly art style of the game so i dont see the problem
i personally think he looks bad ass, too many fans become close minded when it comes to altering anything about the previous games in a series. i for one am open to new ideas and i think this is a solid one.worst case scenario, it doesnt work out so then just go back to the old, simple as that.
Capcoms trolling their own game! xD Damn yeah, but you gotta feel a little sorry for the hard core Mega man fans, they are getting royally screwed lately :/
i find this as having a good sense of humor paying tribute to the earlier renditions of Mega-man. not only that, the title is STREET FIGHTER vs Tekken, not Capcom. i'm also sure they used the original version because of the height differences. the regular short Mega man works in games like Marvel vs Capcom, but i doubt it would work against tekken players.
Sigh....sorry for the double post, but N4G has been acting a bit funny lately.
I don't believe Ono, I want a response from the original creator
I love ono. He such a cool guy. Fans just complain too much and are just ungrateful.
who wouldn't complain about multiple version of the same game in less than a year, cancellation of games, reboots of loved franchises, etc.? And now this... SxT game includes the original Pac-man and even Sony's cat (Toro) but they had to come and ruin Megaman even though fans have been asking for him since the first MvC3? And if I remember correctly Megaman won all the polls in every region yet Capcom had the face to lie to us saying "not enough fan-support". BS!
On the bright side most people should now be aware of that tactic and wait out for the ultimate version and if said ultimate version does not come hey it's now bargain bin.
also they are not really ruin megaman, any real megaman fan should now that this is just a joke about the earlier game's box art. Im not gonna say i would have asked for this character or its my favorite, but im also not gonna whine saying they ruined megaman when its clearly a joke
You're probably one of those people who pretend to be FF fans and think FF13 was a good game too right?
Yeah. They get shafted on games like Mega man Legends 3, then they get this as compensation... bunch of ingrates. Capcom needs to do something for them to be thankful for, not expect them to blindly kiss their a** no matter what they do. And what fans demanded THIS Mega Man? @redDevil87 I bet you're exactly right.
this mega man looks crazy lol
Couldn't they have at least given fans the option to play as the traditional Mega-Man or this design?
Maybe because its "Megaman" and not "Rockman" lol! Ono trolling the fans by using the fugly box art as the character design. ^^;; I want to hear from Inafune himself about this!~ XD
Yeah, they want Megaman, they got it. I want my Rockman!
This idiocy , from some fans , comes from the convoluted idea that when a director add a character he wants or love he'd be taking up a limited amount of spots . When the hell have that theory even been proven true ? It is more likely that extras are usually added as EXTRAS or even dlcs , above and beyond the determined count of regular chars . It's lunacy and a pipe dream to believe that removing megaman or whatever from the guest list , will provide a spot for your beloved character . If he wasnt considered at all , be at as a guest , regular or dlc , he wont suddenly be , because you're having an hissy fit . Besides WTH , used to be , people would be happy at getting more chars no matter what .
It's kinda the same logic behind " 1 pirated copy = 1 less ame sell" from the industry . It's fallacious , removing pacman or megaman , wont necessarily mean they'll feel the need fo fill a void , and add karin , alex or whatever else instead . A publisher would most likely instead cut his losses there and stop wasting time on more chars . Especially if they can count of fans of obscure chars to be happy at their inclusion in the ultimate super duper version one year later
Gohadouken Well said sir,Capcom is just ruining everything for gamers,and yet we got some lunatics that defend the ''Street Fighter Super Duper Iddly Diddly Turbo Arcade Edition,with the inclusion of Skullomania!''
Gohadouken Well said sir,Capcom is just ruining everything for gamers,and yet we got some lunatics that defend the ''Street Fighter Super Duper Iddly Diddly Turbo Arcade Edition,with the inclusion of Skullomania!'' policy. Error that ended in double post =(( sorry about that!
...well, this is the last nail in megaman's coffin, clearly they don't know/don't want to do anything with megaman...
God like trolling from Capcom.
the tears from some "fans" are just delicious .. These are just bitter tears , Those are joke characters .. just take the joke and play someone else..
Haters gonna hate. What? Fans asked for Megaman and they gave them THE REAL DEAL! I think he's hilarious, it's as if Dan stopped training completely and put on a suit he made himself.
Okay Capcom is seriously messing up this game, at least for the hardcore fans like myself. 1. most of the SF cast comes straight Copy paste from SF4. 2. no new alpha street fighter characters. 3. so far no new Third Strike characters. 4. The only new characters from SF are poison,hugo,rolento which are all Final Fight characters. 5.the remaining characters leaked according to Lupinko are Bison,Cody,Guy,Elena,Dudley out of all these only Elena would be a brand new one. 6. No Alex. 7.This Megaman. Capcom is seriously cutting corners, I played the SF4 series for over 2000 hours, I saw all the SF characters before and I dont want to see them again, plus Im a big fan of Alex and he should be in the game since he is technically the main character of Street Fighter 3. Capcom is catering to casuals.. Also what the hell? Why did they add THIS Megaman? The artist literally drew it up in a day because he was rushed, there was nothing wrong with the megaman we all know and love and we dont want this one we want the other one.... SMFH...
I still think that guys going way overboard is what's messed up so far . Capcom never truly caved to such thing , and if they did , you wouldnt even have had the sf3 cast , to request for anyway . Remember the reaction for SF3's reveals back it the day ? Most people litterally complained about the new characters not being as cool or interesting as the older cast . Had capcom listened , it would have been sf3 with mostly the original warriors and a few alpha characters . Instead they took the fans input , as what it is , only added a few missing chars in the later strike versions , and kept at their own thing . If capcom caved in their vs series , there'd have been no Shuma gorath to begin for some to be happy about since the first marvel games ... It's one thing to wish and request for personal favs , it's another level to be actually pissed about another character , an extra guest getting in , and pretending it's at the expense of your favorite . PS : Only sf3 had that many new characters , a select few of them being variants and replacement of a few others . And in sf4 you had quite a few chars you never had before , such as Gouken , juri , abel , el fuerte , c viper . So a pretty usual and ok ratio of new vs old And it's a VS game , not some new official street fighter , why would they introduce there over 4-6 new sf characters ?
It's a damn shame that Alex wasn't included. He's a unique character and with a little bit of practice and skills, he's fun to play with(no pun intended lol).
I agree too , but again if everyone reacted like that , and capcom caved every time , there wouldnt even be an alex to request for , just the old ryu and his gang .
THIS IS AWESOME!! I'm loving everyone's salty tears over this :) :) :) I love that Capcom is throwing in these extra characters and that X-Bots are so mad that they got nothing extra! But honestly let's be real. Capcom is keeping the characters people are demanding out of this version and saving them for MEGA SFxT. Right now there are no characters I'm compelled to play as cause it's all by the numbers SF and Tekken characters. I think Capcom would really benefit from releasing an early demo to show people that this isn,t jus SF4 with Tekken characters cause thats the impression I and many other people have. I'm addicted to mvc3 and I'll probably never go back to SF4. So Capcom really needs to make this game stand out.....
I dont understand why anyone would complain over a few guest characters. I dislike the way street fighter games work, but im half considering getting it just because of the guests, in particular megaman being completely awesome for once. A fat man in a blue suit? Epic.
I'm not complaining, I'm just out right done with Capcom. I'm just going to have to deal with the fact that my favorite character is dead and will be mocked by the company I used to love.
At first, the game was just ugly with this its a zillion times uglier than ever...
Megaman really deserves his own new game. But instead we get this. Nice Capcom.
Where you use PS Move and Kinect to try to get those underwear over that skin-tight spandex? Yeah I bet a lot of gamers will get a real workout trying to get that fat-man in that tiny blue suit. You could even get extra bonus points for keeping the sausage in the wrapper.
LOL he has a ripped up chest but has a big gut. How that happen?
Why don't people just wait and see what happens with the Megaman series? Wouldn't a wait for a few years then an announcement of a new Megaman game be so much better after all this burial than if it was milked dry? This is why I'm starting to hate the gaming community....want everything their way and not willing to wait for anything
It's been 8 years since the last real Megaman game, how much longer are we supposed to wait?
What about Megaman 9 & 10? We just got those A few years ago and they sure as hell are real Megaman games.
Yea but those are downloadable games, I mean a game worthy of a $60 price tag. It's like look at Sonic Generations and Sonic 4, there is a big jump in quality and presentation. Sonic Generations is a real Sonic game, while 4 is a homage to the Genesis games and Megaman 9/10 are just a homage to the NES games.
Megaman 9 & 10 are Megaman games yes. They're excellent games as well. I'm not a graphics whore, but think about the amount effort they put into making 9/10 compared to games today. The retro look wasn't just for nostalgic purposes. It was the only way we were going to get Megaman games without Capcom cashing out any big bucks.
@ RockmanII7 Sonic 4 is part of a bigger game... thats why they're episodic. I wouldn't be shocked if they all combine to form a retail title in the future either. @ Complainers Seriously you can't make up your own belief of what constitutes what and complain about it not happening. It seems like everyone wants a paradox that causes the world to end... Hell based off how people are coming off I wouldn't be shocked if SF V came out with all previous IV characters and JUST as many new characters and people STILL complaining that "half the game is old" or something along those lines...
8 years? boohoo I'm on my 11th year of waiting patiently for a new entry in the Shenmue series...and the patience will pay off
Mario has a new Rival.. or Wario rather. Ohh no I can already see the trollface. Shows the lack of empathy Capcom have & the fact they've been druken with their rock n' roll & sex n' drugs mentality. Cosplaying as Ryu & whoever then adding themselves as characters. The Dan Hibiki joke is funnier than this. I thoroughly mean that, i'm a big fan of Dans. we should be rioting about the fact it's nearly confirmed he's dead thanks to Kazuya. =o=
well who cares about being confirmed dead in an unofficial crossover story . If anything he could even be included as a surprise zombie dan character :p
that is not megaman....even if that was the nintendo megaman on the box....that is not megaman...people can say "your just ungrateful" that is not megaman...i wonder if people would be happy if zero turned out like that....that is NOT megaman enough said
Denial. That's the original Blue Bomber and he's glorious. ACCEPT IT.
I think ill just wait for tekken x street fighter. I'm pretty sure Namco won't release a super and ultimate version.
They do it with the Tekken series. Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection ring a bell?
Namco ported it over from PSP to PS3 because of fan demand.
Doesn't change the fact that it was still an arcade update like Capcom has done so many times before. I'm not saying there wasn't a demand for the console ports because T5:DR is awesome but at least they haven't done it as often. Also, since they haven't released an updated version of Tekken 6 it's a good sign that we won't see it with TxS but you never know.
MEEEEEGA MAN indeed
So Megaman is a really pissed of looking Mike Row from Dirty Jobs? I'm slightly more interested now.
This is Mega MAN, not Mega KID.
This is not Mega Man... This is a delusional fat guy pretending to be Mega Man.
Actually its is Mega Man, However, it is not Rock Man
I think it is pretty funny, and if Keiji Inafune is fine about, thats cool. I'm more concerned what they did to Pac-Man. ;_; He looks like a Tron Bonne rip-off. I wanted to see him fight without the mech...tree thing. I also like the 2 cats too. They are Sony's mascots, but are oddly enough, never used. I guess Cole is meh, but overall, I like the guest cast.
