Mega Man's 22nd Birthday is a Bigger Deal Than We Thought

A few days ago, we reported that Capcom of Japan and Famitsu were planning a Web TV celebration involving none other than Keiji Inafune himself. However, we never imagined the true scope of Capcom's plan... That is, until today, when the following was posted on the Capcom*Unity:


That's right-- they're going global with this one! 22 is such a peculiar number to hold such an event at, even for a character as great as Mega Man. Perhaps they really do have something big in store for us.
As it says, details are forthcoming, and we'll be sure to keep you updated here. The event occurs at 9pm PST on December 16th, meaning folks on the East coast will have to be up at midnight to find out what's going down. On the bright side, since Mega Man's birthday falls on the 17th, it means they'll be the ones celebrating in the most timely manner.
