Mega Man Universe Gameplay Is Like Classic Mega Man

By Spencer . September 2, 2010 . 2:55pm

Preparing for a public reveal at PAX this weekend, Capcom gave us a less cryptic Mega Man Universe gameplay trailer.



Ah, so Mega Man Universe is really classic Mega Man with multiple characters. I wonder what the same level would be like with Ryu… from Breath of Fire.


The style is quite different from other Mega Man titles. It doesn’t have the sharp anime look from Mega Man X or the pixilated characters from the Famicom games. And it almost feels like Capcom made this stage or at least the part with Mega Man written in bricks just for the trailer. Perhaps, there’s a level creator too.

  • it looks like this is based off of the Megaman Powered up/ Maverick Hunter X style – they took the 2.5D design and polished it, added the level creator system, and probably are making social lobbies or overworld mechanics

    it looks like this rocks! man!

      Was gonna say the exact same thing. Basically an HD Powered Up/Maverick Hunter X.
      But wasn’t there also a level creator system in Powered Up? (thus it wasn’t added). Or am I just remembering wrong?

      Should be fun though, I enjoyed those two PSP games.

      • yes there is a level creator in MMPU, that’s exactly why I was instantly reminded of that.

      I don’t remember any card-battling in Megaman Legends or kart racing in Star Force.

      …Will Universe allow for soccer? I’d be okay with that.

    This looks amazing, even better than what I had hoped as I didn’t like the other trailer. It’s a great time to be a Mega Man fan. Kudos to Inafune for appearing in the trailer, It totally looks like his original Mega Man artwork come to life..Strider Hiryu would be an awesome character to play as!

  • EvilAkito

    I had zero interest in this game until I watched that trailer. I thought this was an MMO or something. But if it’s yet another classic style Mega Man game, then count me in!

  • Looks pretty rockin’, hopefully yeah, with the created levels and stuff!

  • RX79V

    Somehow I am just not liking this trailer (probably because how out of place the background is).

    Anyway, if they were to pursue the classic style, I would still like to see 2D sprites instead of 3D models.

    • tubers

      Id rather see super smooth 2d sprites and animations as well xD

  • goronyan

    play as ryu (no way!)

    i lol’d hard

    Will this game be like LaTale?
    And what about legends 3 >.>

    • Chow

      ahem, that’s “[no way!!)”, strangely.


  • Icon

    I’m still kind of confused by what this is all about. I feel like it will feature a creation mode for players, something like Little Big Planet. If so, I think the game will sell pretty well.
