The lights are on
Mega Man is celebrating his 25th Anniversary this year, but that doesn't mean we will see a new Mega Man game or an announcement soon.
The quote below comes from Capcom's corporate officer Christian Svensson on the Capcom Unity blog message boards. In it, her says that there are events planned for the Blue Bomber turning 25, but basically don't get too excited.
"In December 'some but not all' plans for the coming year of celebrations will be shared. There are many moving parts and not everything will be done and final come December. No one has promised a game or even an announcement of one at that time. Please do keep expectations in check."
Thanks to Brian for the news tip!

Capcom hates Megaman? Color me shocked.
Why no Mega Man love, Capcom? :<
At this point the best thing that could happen to Mega Man... is for that IP to be sold to someone like Nintendo (heck, anyone. Capcom doesn't seem to care for their Iconic series anymore)
I wish they'd sell the license to Megaman to Nintendo, then Nintendo could let Retro work on a game. After Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country Returns, I'd trust that studio with making a good Megaman game. At the very least, I'd trust them with MAKING a Megaman game.
Mega Man has to have a comeback. This is a great time for great things to happen in the world of video games.
So... Capcom is telling us how to feel and what we should expect now. Good job. You couldn't have alienated a lot of your older fans if you tried.
well i take it that the series has basically died hasn't it...the same could be said for sonic...but at least sega is cranking out games.
When you have to tell fans to keep expectations in check, you mine as well say we don't care what what you want anymore.
Honestly... For a 25th anniversary deal, I would like a compilation deal like they did on the 20th anniversary. 10 Mega Man games... Plus the Legends games. One Collection. 60 bucks. BAM. Capcom would get my money again after 2 years.
After they've been treating Mega Man, with the MML3 cancellation, BLAMING it on the fans, Street Fighter Vs Tekken cameo, and other infractions, I've given up on Capcom. I don't think outside of what I mentioned could get me to buy another game from them.
Ha.... I remember when I used to waste my time on MegaMan games!
If it isn't Legends 3 for the 3DS I don't care...
keep your expectations in check because we probably wont deliver.....thanks capcom
Basically "We know this is an important year but we could care less about giving you an amazing game."
So I'll take that as expect noting.
still pissed at how they spat in people's faces with MML3
MFW is another WiiU Exclusive :D!!!!!
not buying RE 6 or anything you put out, Crapcom. let's just not buy their games, because this is how this crappy company treats their fans.
