Capcom Unveils Street Fighter X Mega Man This December

So does anyone know if this is going to be released as Wiiware/XBLA/Steamware?

BTW...I find it rather ironic that the username of the fan who created this is "Sonic", especially considering the upcoming crossover Archie has planned.

Voxgizer:
That would be glorious. Gief's one of my favorites.

PILEDRIVE ALL OF THE THINGS.

...seriously...imagine Mega Man doing a Spinning Piledriver on his enemies.

Hell, even if we just get Metal Zangief, I'm happy

Look at that man, He is going to Piledrive the WORLD! FOREVER!

Captcha: What planet are we on? : One of the ones MZ allowed to live XD

Highly unlikely. Capcom would have to figure out some kinda payment plan for the fans who created the game, and I doubt they'll wanna bother with that.

While I would have actually liked to have seen a full blown console release or something similar for the 25th anniversary, it seems apparent from the trailer that someone actually put a good amount of effort into this. Of course, it appears almost like Capcom had to use a fan to bother doing anything with MM, and couldn't spare the development time themselves. Giving it away for free is nice though. I dunno, I feel like I should be more grateful than I am; I suppose I'm just bitter and cynical.

Nah, Akuma will have that job.

True, he probably will. :D

I'm disappointed by the lack of Saikyo in this installment, though. That'd be the only kind of power MegaMan would need.

Unlockable Mode: Power of Saikyo, Mega Buster only travels a quarter screen distance, like a Gadoken.
One hit kills from EVERYTHING
Pink Megaman.
I wait for the Modders...

You...I love you.

MODDERS, GOGOGOGO!

Tbh this sort of cool should be done by Capcom ffs, you could charge me 5/$10 for this sort of thing and people will lap it up, heck its probally good for phones, ipads and pc. How do we end up with the last resident evil insted of cool like this :(

Kudos to Capcom for seeing this as cool freebie they could distribute to their fans rather than a dilution of brand warranting legal surpression.

Maybe I'm just cynical, but all I'm getting from this was "We at Capcom couldn't be bothered to make a game ourselves, so here's some fan game we didn't make at all for you to enjoy. Happy Anniversary, Mega Man."

The only way Capcom can redeem itself in my eyes is if they finish up Mega Man Legends 3, but that makes far too much sense and would get them far too much money, respect, and love, and Capcom, we've learned, is allergic to success and love.

But, hey, Street Fighter x Tekken version 2013 was announced. I'm pretty sure we're weeks away from Resident Evil 6 Gold Edition too.

... *sigh*...

Grahav:
Super cool.

You see Sega? This is the support you should have given to Streets of Rage remake.

Nothing cool about this.

For you see, Sega stands to lose money out of those fan projects since, you know, they are still actively making Sonic games.

For Capcom however, they killed off Mega Man the moment Inafune left Capcom, probably out of spite. They are just "endorsing" this to soothe the more gullible fanboys.

Call me a cynic, but until I see them actually making another game featuring the Blue Bomber themselves I'm just going to see this as Capcom grabbing themselves some free PR thanks to an eager fan.

On the one hand, it looks pretty lame. On the other hand, it's cool that it's getting a release.

Best move Capcom has made in a long time.
Though now I'm curious about another fan-designed Megaman game...

Off to google I go!

Ugh that opening music reminds me of I Wanna Be The Guy and will probably give me nightmares tonight...

No bad boxart Mega Man? Disappointing.

But seriously this looks great. And I can't believe it's completely free and endorsed by Capcom :D

I am a fan of neither series and even I can tell this is full of win, heres hopeing Capcom doesn't shot itself in the foot.

If anyone sees my mind, can you let me know.
I just lost it.

Can't wait.

Yes, that is the Bonnes as the villans and yes you can kill the slide marker.

You're welcome.

You're welcome.

Tiesel Bonne...lives!

Actually, I was referring to MegaMan X Corrupted.
No new youtube videos from jkb in 9 months, though thumbing through the comments in a few of his existing videos shows he has commented in the last two weeks.
I don't know if he got hit with Cease & Desist or what, but I imagine if he had the videos would have been taken down.

Did someone die over at Capcom and finally free Megaman? :O

A_Rival has previously done plenty of work with OCRemix; he used to be called AE, but changed his name about 2 years ago. Here's his previous work:

SachielOne:
So the only way Capcom will give any love to Megaman is if they don't have to pay any money to do it? Screw you, Capcom.

Yep. Only Capcom would pull such bullshit.
I can't help but feel this all an elaborate trap..

oh wow i didn't even read it like that

that's... wow
just

I personally can't blame you for thinking as such.
CAPCOM had no hand in making this game and will just find a way to take credit for it for the sake of trying to appeal to its old fans without so much as having to spend a single cent on developing or making a game itself

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only cynic in here and that I am in pretty good company. Yes, free megaman is awesome but seriously, Capcom can't even be bothered to make a celebratory 8-bit game for their most popular franchise? After the whole Legends 3 disaster no one was expecting anything more than a best-of or rerelease of the old NES games but you're even too lazy to port some ROMS onto modern consoles?

Capcom doesn't deserve even one shred of credit for anything Megaman related by now. Having such a hardcore rockin' fanbase is just amazing.

The costume from Chun-Li is essentially the bad box art mega man.
