Okay, so when we brought you word last week of what Mega Man goodness was in the newest issue of Nintendo Power, we did leave a part out-- mostly because it didn't really say anything we haven't been hearing from Capcom, and figured it would only lead to more cynicism (and at the places that did cover it, it has), which we already see plenty of around here. But since it seems that not only is every website grabbing it, but you guys keep sending in tips, too, you must really want it here for all to see, so here it is: The last part of the interview (which we did allude to before, incidentally). answered by Capcom Vice President Christian Svensson:
Nintendo Power: What does the future hold for Mega Man?
Christian Svensson: I can say with certainty that you've not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we'll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you're going to enjoy over the next 25 years. That said, an issue we've had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we're certain they're going to come out, which unfortunately has led to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I'm going to have to stay mum about any details.
And there you have it.
Thanks to all of you who sent us a tip about this! Now we'd better see joy and smiles and rainbows in the comments about the news!
