The Blue Bomber deserves another shot at the big time, don't you think?
Capcom has canceled several Mega Man games this generation (including Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe ), but fans needn't worry about never seeing the iconic sci fi hero again.
In speaking to Nintendo Power (as cited by Rockman Corner ), Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson has declared that someday, Mega Man will indeed return:
"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."
However, Svensson wouldn't confirm that a new title is in the works, and said the company has ran into problems before when announcing games before they were certain of completion. So at this point, he won't go into any details. But that's good enough for now, and it'll definitely be interesting to see if Mega Man ends up on multiple consoles. Wouldn't you like to see a new franchise iteration on a next-gen piece of hardware, for instance?
