    It seems Capcom is not finished with the Mega Man franchise yet. In an interview with Nintendo Power, Capcom USA CEO Christian Svensson had this to say about Mega Man's future.

    Not buying it. Fuck you, Capcom.

    And like the battered housewife, Mega Mans everywhere will stay loyal, clinging on to every last shred of hope.

    Despite only really enjoying the "classic" mega man, I'm sure capcom will return to it eventually, it is not like anyone just gives up on a successful franchise.

    I enjoyed the DS Megaman Zero games... Oh, and I also love the BN and SF series, I'd love it if they'd continue making those types. D=

    bring me a BN title and we'll talk.... Ryuusei was the better story (ultimatevly....), however BN had the better gameplay...

    Anniversary... I like that word.

    And while your at it Capcom: force/ask that Ryuusei Anime Music Composer (Shuhei Naruse) to release both OSTS !

    I dunno...x7 tried 3d and it came out shitty smelling, as for Legends, having not played it I was always under the impression that was more of a 3d adventure than platformer

    In all fairness, what sounds more believable.
    Capcom decides to abandon the long running fan favorite cashcow IP that is Mega Man.
    Or
    Capcom decides to continue milking Mega Man for all it's worth.

    Now whether anything good comes out of it is an entirely different matter, ahaha.

    Personally I'm intrigued in what next Capcom will do to anger the Mega Man fanbase.

    It's Capcom. Knowing them they likely gave the IP to a third party developer to "reboot" the series. Similar to the current DmC.


    Yeah, Mega Man is fucked.

    As opposed to being left in Capcom's hands without Inafune around?
    Could be worse, ahaha.

    I should hope not that we haven't seen the last of mega man. That would be incredibly stupid on their part. If they were going to get rid of Mega Man, might as well get rid of Street Fighter and Resident Evil.

    Things more likely than that happening:
    • Hell freezing over
    • Poketards not being fucking retards
    • Valwin becoming literate
    • Guild and Soulsnatcher being civil to each other on a regular basis
    • Me not being black
    • Gahars unable to make a pun
    • Zombie apocalypse
    • The Vita having games
    • James Beattie scoring a a goal
    • haters stop hatin'
    • Anyone with a Naruto inspired username being a successful member of GBAtemp
    • Foxi not wanting to suck Guild's cock
    • Obama becoming a socialist
    • Birthers accepting their campaign against Obama is a tad based on racism
    • Guild not being an angry augmentative shit
    • Capcom not charging for on disc DLC
