imageMega Man Universe not the Korean developed Rockman Online for PCs. It’s a brand new take on the Mega Man series for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

 

“This game will break the mold and challenge the conventional wisdom of what a Mega Man game can be. When fans finally get to see it, I believe they’ll envision their most far-out Mega Man dreams coming true,” Kenji Inafune, Head of Research and Development Management for Capcom Entertainment.

 

Your dreams will come true if you’re envisioning a classic Mega Man game. Capcom didn’t share any gameplay details, but they emphasize Mega Man Universe will be a new chapter in classic gaming, Vague, we know, but it seems like Capcom is setting up an Mega Man Universe blowout next week at Comic-Con.

    So, in which part of the main timeline will this be based on?

    Well, uh, that’s nice. You know what else are nice? Screenshots or trailers, Capcom. It’s hard to get excited when they don’t tell anyone anything about the game.

      I believe Capcom is saving the main reveal for Comic-Con. We might, perhaps, be speaking with a key person involved with the project so check back later.

        I know and I hope it doesn’t come off like I’m blaming you guys for this.

    The trailer floating around shows a claymation Megaman turning into Ryu and Arthur for some reason. And at the end, “Megaman 1 cover” Megaman walks up and slips. It just seems to me like it’ll be a classic, non-canon Megaman game with said powerups.

    Anyone play Mega Man: The Wily Wars on the Genesis? I’m hoping this ends up being something like Wily Tower where it’s a remix of elements from previous Mega Man games and you could equip Mega Man with any of his previous powers.

    I bet you anything it’s a LBP take on Mega Man, where the purpose is for user-generated levels to be created and shared over online. I say that based on the statements here and that “trailer” (though, what the hell was Ryu doing in it?). A side note about the trailer – am I the only one annoyed at how they keep bringing up the “worst boxart of all time”?

    looks like I’m still waiting for the next X or Legends game once again…

    Not saying this isn’t awesome news, I’m sure many people would love it. It’s a great idea for the series, if it’s what I think it is. I’d just rather get that next X game or Legends game. I’m not so into user-generated stuff, and classic mega man has never been my favorite kind of mega man either.

    The series just hasn’t hummed my tune since Zero 4 and Command Missions…

    I thought the fanbase was on other systems.
