It’s a fact a lot of people have been disappointed in Rockman Xover – I can’t even say I’m excited about it myself, though I’m waiting to see its details. Still, some of you nutty nuts immediately assumed that this would be the only thing commemorating Mega Man‘s 25th, and that Mega Man is dead, and that Capcom stole all of your candy bars in the dark of night. When the question of “is anything else planned?” was brought to Capcom’s Christian Svensson, this is what he had to say:
Yes… but we don’t start until the 25th birthday actually happens (which is in December). Japan has its schedule of things its doing and we’re working on our own things. However beyond that, unfortunately I won’t be able to shed any light at this time. You will just have to wait and see.
Others at Capcom, such have Brelston, have also been saying there’s a lot of planning in the works for Mega Man‘s 25th, and we just need to be patient and stay tuned. I will also personally say this: Don’t worry about it. It doesn’t need to be explained how bad times are for Mega Man lately. But constantly thinking and speculating and hoping about it will probably lead you building up expectations that are too high. Don’t force yourself into a position to be underwhelmed and miserable.
