Remember that fan game which featured Mega Man taking on various characters from Street Fighter? Well, guess what?
Capcom has just revealed via the trailer above that it is going to be an official release to celebrate the 25th anniversary of both Mega Man and Street Fighter. And better still? It’s going to be a free download for PC (admittedly not so good if you don’t have a good PC gaming controller).
capcom-unity.com/mega_man has all the details, and the game will be available on December 17th, the 25th anniversary of Mega Man.
It may not be the grand spectacle that people were hoping for, but at least this seems to show that Capcom is definitely still thinking about the Blue Bomber.
Update: Now that the site is loading again, have a press release. Also added the link to the story for the original game above.
