It's been a little while since we last heard from the folks over at Get Me Off the Moon about their planned 8-bit fan game version of the "Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype Version" known as "Mega Man Legends 3: The Prologue." But now the game is on the way, and there's a new trailer to get us all hyped!
Mega Man fans have long been a creative bunch, and the dedicated fans behind "Mega Man 2.5D" are no different. The unofficial game is both gaining a growing fan base online and a seeing a new beta release tomorrow. Recently, The Mega Man Network was able to sit down with Peter Sjöstrand, the lead designer of the project, to discuss the background of the project and the new Beta 3.0 release.
While most news these days revolves around Mega Man's spiritual successors, fans of the original Blue Bomber have been busy with "Mega Man 2.5D", an unofficial labor of love that features not just Paper Mario-like perspective but a 2-player cooperative mode that we once only dreamed about. The Mega Man Network recently sat down with Peter Sjöstrand, the game designer of "Mega Man 2.5D", to discuss the background of their project and features new with their upcoming Beta 3.0 release.
Yesterday, The Mega Man Network was recently able to sit down and play through a demo level of Mighty No. 9 during PAX 2014. While it was only one level, it showed off a number of cool things that makes Mighty No. 9 a different beast than its predecessors, while still maintaining much of what made previous games staring blue robots particularly special.
Thanks to the fine folks at Inti Creates and 8-4 Ltd., The Mega Man Network has been able to play through and dissect much of what could be called the first post-Capcom Mega Man game–Mega Man without Mega Man, as it were. But defining Azure Striker Gunvolt in that way would do an injustice to one of the best platformers of this generation.
This news came along with the new funding campaign announcement, but seemed worthy enough of its own article here.
