Details have been scarce about the newly announced platformer from one of Capcom’s most beloved creations, yet Mega Man Universe is turning heads simply for its existence. With the option of playing the game on either Xbox Live or PSN, it seems that things could be changing for the 8-bit hero when he takes on the persona of other Capcom characters like Ryu from Street Fighter and Arthur from Ghosts & Goblins in the teaser release video. While there has been nothing to explain what this could actually mean in the gameplay, it suggests that you could potentially be a Capcom-crossover.
“This game will break the mold and challenge the conventional wisdom of what a Mega Man game can be. When fans finally get to see it, I believe they’ll envision their most far-out Mega Man dreams coming true.” Kenji Inafune, Head of Research and Development Management was adamant that this was going to be one of the best Mega Man games that both Capcom and players have experienced. You can watch the video of the teaser trailer, (posted here, courtesy of Gamestop) and give your thoughts and opinions. Personally, the idea of throwing a shoryuken at a Tornado Man would make my day.
