At the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo, we learned where the new look of "Mega Man" came from, among other things. However, we weren't the only ones on hand with questions; Jonathan Holmes of Destructoid was also in attendance, but his attention was turned to a Mega Man of a different color... and very different look:
In addition, Holmes notes that Seth confirmed that Universe will feature not only polygonal artwork, but sprite-based as well. That, and he has a whole bucket of mustard-covered napkins and sandwich wrappers to dump on him at TGS, where we will hopefully learn more about the game.
We'll stay tuned for both info and trash-dumping shenanigans as it comes.
