Mega Man Anniversary Stream Announced For December 4

Capcom says fans "won't want to miss" the stream.

22 Comments

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man series. While it's been quite a while since the Blue Bomber has starred in a new title, Capcom will commemorate the occasion with a special Mega Man Anniversary livestream.

The stream takes place this coming Monday, December 4, and begins at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. One hour prior to the stream, Capcom will air a "Streamer Showdown" pre-show that will feature trivia and guest appearances by streamer ProJared, speedrunner Usedpizza, and rapper Mega Ran. Viewers will also have a chance to win Mega Man prizes by tuning in.

No Caption Provided

Capcom hasn't divulged any details on what it will show during the livestream, aside from that it runs for an hour and fans "won't want to miss this celebration of the Blue Bomber's birthday." You can watch the stream on Capcom's Twitch channel.

Mega Man isn't the only Capcom franchise celebrating a big anniversary this year. The Street Fighter series also turned 30 in 2017. Capcom commemorated that milestone by releasing special DLC costumes for Street Fighter V. A set of nostalgic DLC outfits were also added to the fighting game recently.

Please let it be a new Classic Mega Man game. It's been too long!

Capcom finally decided to stop playing it safe with Monster Hunter (one of their biggest cash cows). Maybe...just maybe...they'll take a risk and actually try developing a new Mega Man game.

Knowing Capcom, we'll simply get a re-released Mega Man X Collection, a re-released Zero Collection, or get a Legends Collection.

Knowing Capcom it'll probably be some pay-to-win Mega Man RPG card game or something, that nobody wants... Mega Man is about to go the way of our beloved Sonic... Hated by his creators, and surviving off the passion of creative and talented fans.

No new MM games since 2010, yet they feel justified in celebrating the anniversary? Of what, exactly? The 7th straight year without a new game, or the continued milking of MM's legacy in the form of half-assed compilations and DLC for other games?

Capcom, either make a new MM game, or let the series die in peace. Better yet, promote some more fan projects in the same way as SFxMM (or was it MMxSF? It was so long ago, I forget.). We get new MM games, and you get to redeem yourselves with little effort on your part. Win/win.

It could be one of a million things that I would be interested in. But knowing Capcom, it won't be any of them.

Any new Megaman game would probably be better than anything that Inafune has put out in recent years.

Knowing Capcom, they are likely going to announce nothing.

Capcom is going to break hearts like an exgirlfriend who doesn't even remember an old boyfriend's name.

"Mega Man games don't sell, here's a trivia question."

Can you just give just give us the X series and legends already? That was the height of the series! Especially X4, my personal favorite! That snow level music, so amazing!

Yes, and 7 years without a single new game in the Mega-Man universe, since megaman 10 in 2010, theres no reason to celebrate 7 years without any new games.. megaman legacy collection 1 and 2 are all old games. And lets not forget ever the cancelation of megaman legends 3.

Been awhile since we heard about the Blue Bomber. Hope a new game is announced during the live stream.

Thanks for giving us the chance to prepare for disappointment. Calling it now, botched Megaman collection for Switch. Should've made 3D Classics Megaman collection for 3DS.
