By Spencer . December 16, 2012 . 1:30pm

imageMega Man turns 25 next week and it’s a lonely birthday compared to the big bash for Street Fighter. He can celebrate about his… car insurance premium going down?


Capcom USA will release Street Fighter X Mega Man, a fan made game with World Warriors as robot masters. Capcom Japan made Mega Man Xover… which is like playing Mega Man on a conveyor belt.


The other thing Capcom Japan is doing is a Virtual Console sale for Mega Man games. Mega Man 1 –6 on 3DS Virtual Console plus Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 for WiiWare are 20% off until January 7, 2013.


Happy Birthday Mega Man. We remember your 20th birthday fondly and attended your party in Tokyo!

    • AkuLord3

      huh…did 7 and 8 even get on Psn/Wiiware at all?

      • Jonathan Benefiel

        no but 7 should. 8 was on ps1 I think. *looks up* and saturn.

        • D-Rev

          Megaman & Bass was on the Super Famicom too…
          I think that should get a PSN/WiiWare/ect port…

        • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

          Mega Man 7 – Super NES
          Mega Man 8 – PlayStation/Saturn

  • Charmchar

    I wonder if they’re doing this to actually see how many people want a new Mega Man game or just to milk the series…i wonder….

    • AkuLord3

      Milk the series? no they used to. I bet its just to see how many new people they can get and for those you haven’t gotten yet

  • The Letter D

    Even since his introduction, I’ve always preferred Zero to Mega Man.

    • Jonathan Keycross

      “Ha! This girlie-looking, long-haired robot will be the strongest? Don´t make me laugh!” .-Bass

      While I do agree that I liked Zero´s role and character since his introduction, my first impression was pretty similar to Bass´s.

  • Renzouri

    Was Inafune invited to the party?

  • ragingmerifes

    Why are you like this, Capcom?

  • John Diamond

    how can ya miss out megaman 8. that was one of the best megaman games out there

    • Justin Whiteaker

      Because playstation and not Nintendo. 9 and 10 are free from this becauase they were distributed to all consoles to begin with.

  • Shadowman

    Pretty nice!

  • Vince

    IMO, this is a bit of a luck luster to commemorate the Blue Bomber’s 25th. Though, I’m withholding whole personal judgement for the moment.

  • Romangelo

    why they don’t just port all of these to PSN? (not as a PSOne classics but real PSN games)

  • Haseyo

    “Your present is…not paying us AS MUCH money. But seriously, fork up dat yen.”

  • alundra311

    I wish they would have at least added 3D to Mega Man 1-6.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    no 7,8 and Megaman and bass?

  • doubletaco

    Sorry, Capcom. You had your opportunity to earn my business back, but like I said with Okami HD — Rereleasing old games from before you were dancing on their graves is not the way to do it.
