Capcom has shown quite a bit of interest in the retro side of Mega Man as of late. Mega Man 9 and 10 in 8-bit style, a DS collection of the four Mega Man Zero titles which ran through the first half of the last decade, and even a time traveling trip by the Star Force MegaMan to visit his Battle Network counterpart. Ah, yes, Mega Man Star Force... it's been a while since we've heard anything from that particular branch of the franchise, but it has apparently not been forgotten by Tarbo-san (linked blog is in Japanese). Three months were spent working on the following introduction sequence, which takes Geo back in a different way, though one Capcom has been making a bit of use of recently.
Watch, as the opening story of the first Ryuusei no Rockman/Mega Man Star Force game is re-created in the style of this Mega Man's NES-originated ancestor:
While there aren't many grievances here with the gameplay of the Star Force games (other than some of the higher encounter rates), the prospect of an 8-bit platforming version is certainly enticing. But how would it play? Better than Transmission did, hopefully!
