Capcom asks Mega Man fans to 'keep expectations in check'

Mega Man may be turning 25 this December, but don't expect Capcom to give Blue Bomber the same treatment we've come to expect from Nintendo and their plucky protagonists over the past couple of years.

they should at least do a special collection like Square did for FF with as many MegaMan games as possible for $200 or something. =(

I'd buy that. ;_;

But that would involve PLEASING people. And we all know Capcom isnt about that. Its about shitty DLC practices and cancelling any game that isnt a fighter.

This just in: Resident Evil 6 and Dragon's Dogma now fighters!

Seriously though I'm inclined to agree. Just being a smartass.

Yeah so would i but that better include all the good battle network games aswell and X series.

I would really LOVE to see a full-fledged-great-developer made Mega Man game. Mega Man was easily one of my favorite franchises in the NES days.

I would LOVE to see something like that, Europe and other PAL areas didn't even get the last collections they had on the Gamecube/PS2, and the handheld collection they had in line for the GBA got canceled.

They should do some sort of collection with all the older games, a history hall type deal, character bios, artwork, maybe even have some old tv ad's or other extra junk thrown in. Like a Sonic Jam type deal or more recently like the Kirby Dream Collection. Have a nice statue made for the set or something.

It would take next to no effort, most companies just get little studios to handle stuff like this and oversee it. They wouldn't even have to make anything beyond some cool menus. And yet i don't even see this happening...poor Megaman. Everyone is wanting to throw him a party, but Capcom has him locked up in a dungeon in the depths of their HQ somewhere.

How DARE someone still like one of our characters, we obviously haven't done a good enough job of ruining him >.<

Remaking XZ, Zero and the like that were on DS and put them on PSN/XBL or a collection disc.

Such should have happened long ago, but then they have issues with making 2D games - unless they were already made or playable for the platform in question.

CrescentFang2275d ago

Well I'm pretty sure Inticreates developed those games, and they love making them 2D games.
ZX Advent had some really nice sprite work imo. I think the 2D issue is really with their fighters.
I wonder what Inticreates is up to now...

Godmars2902275d ago

It more about the fact that sprite animation became cost restrictive with the move to HD. Capcom both didn't want to spend the money, where they eventually did with Street Fighter and Marvel versus Capcom, nor got go the idea/want to do it.

Vegrad4152275d ago (Edited 2275d ago )

Why would any company, gaming related or not, even say something like this to it's customers?

It seemed like Capcom was just bailing on the Mega Man franchise, but now I don't know what to think.

Griffin48712275d ago

All I know is that Megaman has been ****ed over way too many times.

Megaman Universe cancelled
Megaman Legends 3 cancelled
Megaman Online fell off the face of the earth, so cancelled?
Megaman not being in Marvel vs Capcom 3

What a great way to treat the company's mascot. Most recent Sonic games haven't been so great, but at least Sega doesn't leave him in the dust.

New Megaman X/XZ/Zero game would be great. But I'd settle with ports or remakes. They may just end up releasing all main series Megaman 1-10 on one package though :/
