Capcom: Mega Man will return

Publisher's senior vice president promises Blue Bomber will return to consoles and portables, won't share more details.

200 Comments

In the past two years, Capcom has canceled Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe, but that doesn't mean the publisher is giving up on the Blue Bomber. In a Nintendo Power interview (via Rockman Corner), Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson promised Mega Man will return.

No Caption Provided

"I can say with certainty that you've not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we'll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you're going to enjoy over the next 25 years," Svensson said.

However, Capcom is not going to rush to announce any new Mega Man projects before the time is appropriate.

"That said, an issue we've had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we're certain they're going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans," he added. "So for now, I'm going to have to stay mum about any details."

The most recent entry in the series was Mega Man 10, which released in 2010 for Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and WiiWare.

Here's hoping they localize Project X Zone. If any of you haven't heard of it, look it up on here. Mega man and Zero are in it. Not a Mega man game but I'll take what I can get.

Get back the old guys that created Mega Man, the entire Staff. And just do it all over again, with the old ingredients. Good story, good 2D sidescroll game and that is it. Period.

I CERTAINLY HOPE SO! Anyone that doesn't clearly doesn't know a good game when they see it. Mega man will never get old, my video game collection is a testament.

I'd rather have Power Stone 3.

But then again maybe it's better if they don't touch that. They'd just ruin it and make me sad.

I grew up playing mega man, but would like a reboot or maybe a different play style. I think that would be cool.

Half of the Robot Master will be on disc DLC, every alt-mode like Time Trial, Infinite Run will be DLC and the true End will also be a DLC. The also make it a 3d game with QTE to beat each robot-master or normal robot in the level. You will also have studpid Acheivements/Trophies where you have to find stupid shits that give nothing in the game.

All those DLC will be annonced a year before the game will be release and the first robot-master DLC ( you know to complete the half that is locked on the disc ) will be avalaible day one and also an pre-order deal.

heard this Megaman will return before, last time they said it it was a crappy iOS game, and the time before it was a crappy character in Tekken vs SF. even if they do bring back Megaman its not gonna be the same as before. you caused yourself to bleed too much talent Capcom and I'm just about to turn my back on you.

Depending on what they do, I may forget all the anti-consumerism of the past years if this release is done right. It's about damn time.

@juboner Indeed, and that breaks my heart. :/

Same goes for LucasArts (I mean prior to Disney's purchase), they just weren't the same company they used to be, either. :(

Maybe an animation movie like Resident Evil Degeneration. It wasn't bad at all.

Megaman x for the Snes is one of the greatest side scrollers of all time. it's also my favorite game ever. Capcom needs to recapture what made that game great and if they do, they will have a winner on their hands.

Megaman pisses me off.

Why? Because Megaman (X specifically) Is AWESOME...

But they keep doing it in a really lame way.

I still hope it will be done right someday, but only time will tell.

@VenkmanPHD Then it isn't "Megaman" that pisses you off, lol.

Example: Sonic is godlike (Based off genesis and cartoon series). The n00b developers in charge of the poor guy after the original Sega founder left, are the who piss me off.

I played the first Mega Man for the NES decades ago as a kid. I faithfully played it up till MM 4 and then played a few of the X series. It just wasn't the same once it went to PS2 and then you had the top down Mega Man, the battle card, etc... I'm glad they went retro with 9 and 10. I love the old difficulty back in the day.

I hope that if and when Mega Man 11 returns they do release it as a next gen but keep the feel of its old predecessors. There is still so much you can do with 2D!

As a crappy knock of an old over milked franchise... I have no faith in Crapcom.

Take metroid prime add in a full FPS option and you have megaman core mechanics in a nutshell.......

Megaman... Capcom forgot what made the blue bomber a hit, it was megaman 1-5 the best games on the series. X was good but not that good, Since X2 the series was on downhill. 9 & 10 was a good try to bring on the old days of glory of megaman.I specially love Megaman 3 and 5.
