Capcom knows how to bring the classics back. They did it with Mega Man 9 back in 2008 and now, they're set to do it again.
The new retro revival is called Mega Man Universe , a title that was trademarked back in April and will be coming to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. A teaser video for the new game shows the Blue Bomber taking on Dr. Wily's baddies in multiple art presentations, but obviously, Capcom is going a bit further. Mega Man will actually be able to turn into versions of other historic Capcom characters, like Ryu from Street Fighter and Arthur from Ghosts 'n Goblins . And what else might they include? The video shows brief clips of other old-school classics, like 1942 , Final Fight , Darkstalkers and Bionic Commando . Said Mega Man producer Kenji Inafune:
"This is something that you have never seen before, and we have included some hints into this teaser trailer. If you take a look closely, you will be able to imagine a lot of different possibilities. So try and use your imagination, and you may figure out what makes this game special."
But beneath all the extra stuff – use your imagination to figure out what it all might be – Capcom promises a "core experience fans want," which isn't much of a surprise. This is one publisher that has typically remained faithful to its old incarnations and long-time fans, so we can't wait to see what they bring us in Mega Man Universe .
