Tokyo Game Show was the last we heard anything new of Mega Man Universe. If you don't recall, that was back in September of last year. There's been speculation abounds concerning the game's fate, but we finally have an official word on Universe's status. Over at Ask Capcom, Christian Svensson has this to say:
"Unfortunately, I have no new news to share on the project. It's not dead though... and it's changed a lot."
Back at PAX, we'd gotten word that the game was being aimed for a March release, but it seems like we're probably going to miss that now. Mega Man Universe has had a lot of criticism, both for its art style and play controls for those who have sampled it. Personally, my main issue has always been about a reliance on user-made stages and a perceived lack of content. But other than that, I can't say I thought too poorly of the game. Still, it will be interesting to see where these new developments take it. We'll keep you posted.
