  • Vesperion

    And Capcom slowly wins back it’s fans

    • Capcom has nothing to do with this though.

      • Kaihedgie

        Even though guest characters appearing have everything to do with the company that allowed their inclusion in the first place?

        • JoJo_649

          I wonder how Nintendo convinced them of using a good version of mega man.

          • J_Joestar

            dump-truck full of money?

          • 1Fella

            Nintendo has more money than Capcom , so yeah.

  • OkamiKing


  • Musashi234

    ….Im Crying….MANLY TEARS OF JOY!!!!!!!!!!

    • anthony apduhan

      Nintendo made a miracle T^T I can finally live in peace…

      • P 627

        they decided on this a long time ago… living under a rock doesn’t get you anywhere in life LOLz

        • Musashi234

          I remember Inafune wanted Megaman in Brawl but they never went around to ask him. I’m glad that they finally included him in this one at least =D!

  • Elemiel


  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    THANK YOU CAPCOM!! hope he isn’t the only new char, but wow. Amazing. Respectable showing from Nintendo.

    • 1Fella

      Expect Pac-Man as final reveal before release :)

  • Brandon001


    ON THE 3DS?


    • Silver Citizen

      Then you better write a will because Chrom is all but confirmed. You can see the Feroxi arena during the trailer.

      • He’s alright, but I would have preferred Lucina as sadly none of the Dark Mages or Owain could possibly make it. Hoping Chrom has feet too.

        • ZEROthefirst

          They’ll probably make a Lucina themed alternate outfit for Marth. Technically all they have to do is throw on a mask and change his outfit a bit and there we go. Of course you will hear Marth grunting and screaming instead of Lucina.

          • If any characters go though, it might unfortunately be Marth, including a Lucina mask. Chrom seems very likely for a new Fire Emblem character.

  • SilentMC

    It’s midnight here in Melbourne, the stream was cutting out randomly on me. But it cut right back on this. I screamed a whole buncha incomprehensible words in joy at the top of my voice. Neighbours must hate me

    • Brandon001

      MAN, screw the neighbors.

  • benhofb

    I was expecting more character announcements (Like Chrom or Lucina from FE:A) but this is looking pretty sick! Nice cel shading on the 3DS and beautiful HD on WiiU! Can’t wait!

  • The Watcher

    called it.

  • Klaus00

    let’s not forget … Villager…lol

    • Miss_Madness

      The villager kind of scares me now. That cold blooded stare, Villager has no mercy

      • puchinri

        Becoming a mayor has made villager hardcore.

    • Pockystix

      wonder, if girl villager is alt costume?

      • Spirit Macardi

        What if it could link to your Animal Crossing: New Leaf data and make him look like your own character?

      • puchinri

        I really hope so~.

  • Honestly more excited for even more Animal Crossing representation.

    • Darkshadow667

      remember whar Sakurai Said during the build of Brawl, The Models were all already available to him… maybe that means a WiiU Animal crossing is in the works, and perhaps a Classic Mega Man HD remix…

    • puchinri

      I know, right? It’s a pleasant surprise. I hope the palette swaps for Villager have another guy and two of the girls though (maybe one with pink hair and the dreamy eyes~?).

  • HerosLight

    They brought back the Dojo too.

    • puchinri

      Ah, so it is open already! Thanks for the link~.

    • J_Joestar

      just noticed that the flames on the logos are different (3ds is red and U is blue). Wonder if that has an impact on any supposed differences in between the versions.

  • Zonder88

    Oh look Megaman, in a non-Capcom game, hahaha.

  • Virevolte

    I remembered him having a more manly design.

    • AuraGuyChris

      That was his descendant X.

    • SilentMC

      Aw come on, I mean look at him, he’s adorably pudgy

    • KingRuff

      I think you might be thinking about this guy…

      • Virevolte

        Okayyy… now, that’s too manly… I’d be scared to play Kirby next to that guy. The cute Megaman will do.

  • RazeXI

    You know…I was just talking to my friend how funny it’d be if they included Villager as a joke character…eerie Nintendo > . >

  • Wow, I have a new main! The whole game and Mega Man look amazing. Well, I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining but I honestly wish it had been Mega Man X. I always felt he would have been a much better fit for Smash Bros, and I feel like he’s been too neglected compared to Classic Mega Man or even Legends’ Mega Man when it comes to cameos.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Remember that there are alternate costumes so they could use the Legends, X, Battle Network, Starforce skins, etc. Hell even as DLC I’d buy them all.

      • That’d be cool, at least, but classic Mega Man moves with an X skin would seem kinda weird… actually including X would play a lot differently than classic Mega Man (especially fully armored, allowing for air-dashing and charge shots that’d put fear into other projectile chargers like Samus, lol).

        • ZEROthefirst

          They could still technically do it if they use X from the original MMX. He couldn’t dash or anything without armor upgrades. Obviously he wouldn’t have the same type of weapons as classic MM in a sense, but it would only be a skin.

          • J_Joestar

            Maybe they could even re-skin a number of the attacks/projectiles to look like various MMX powers? although I don’t know if there are enough aesthetically similar ones to do it for all of them.

    • HerosLight

      I would have prefered Megaman X too since I’m not really a fan of the Classic Megaman.

      But hey, I’m completely fine that they added him.

  • Letiumtide

    That was probably the most badass Mega Man reveal ever.

  • Just Tim

    I feel like taking this as a sign that Inafune intentionally placed Zero in MvC3 as the REAL “Megaman” unit, as he intended in the X Saga…only for the latter to receive a veto via Executive Meddling.

    *Cue US FGC, dismissing SSB4 as “kiddie”, because SSB doesn’t have an arcade version yet.*

    Even then, Classic Megaman’s fighting game debut was in Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, which is a PROPER fighting game with roots in the arcade.

    • Kaihedgie

      Except very few people used Mega Man competitively…or competently

      • Just Tim

        Even then, I feel as if Classic Megaman’s past portrayals were mild (read: no power copying).

    • AkuLord3

      I really doubt Inafune had anything to do with it and of course them just reusing Zero from TvC (of course changing some things).

  • ZEROthefirst

    I didn’t get to see all of the Mega Man intro sadly. Right in the middle my stream froze up while the sound was still going. Of course I couldn’t hear it anyways because I was almost literally screaming like a little girl. But I did see Wily’s Castle pop up for a 2nd and it froze again, and one of my buddies said that he saw a silhouette that looked Zero.
    I can definitely see a 2nd Mega Man rep in the game, and when it shows Wily’s Castle the things that come to mind are Bass and Zero… but I think we know who’s more likely of the 2 and is more suited for a brawler type game.

    Edit: Well finally got to see the full trailer by looking at Nin. UK’s Presentation and no silhouettes, which is disappointing, but I won’t give up hope (hopefully if Zero does get in that they go with his MMZ style instead of the X series).

  • Learii

    Namco screw capcom

  • Shadowman

    Suck it Capcom!!

  • Prinnydoom

    HELL. YES.

  • Kaihedgie

    Great. Hasn’t been an hour yet and people are still bitching at Capcom. Jeezus, you people are impossible.

    Aside from that: HHNNNNGGGHHH

    My body is only half-ready Dl Do I get a Wii U or just get the game on the 3DS?! HALP

    • AkuLord3

      Dood…everyone is always bitching…don’t let that out of ur head for a sec (unless its something good where we don’t)

      • Kaihedgie

        That’s gonna be hard to do when people are spamming such comments all over the place

  • Anna Scruton

    I’m more excited for the Animal Crossing player character. I will master him!

  • kylehyde

    Not X, not the phony fat one, this time is the real one, too bad that I will have wait until the 2014.

    • Slayven19

      That’s actually not a long time to wait.

  • $36598391

    Please be Megaman X!

    • Anime10121

      Um, if you look at the pic, its CLEARLY classic Megaman…

      • $36598391

        Just because it shows Megaman doesn’t mean they can’t change it to X

        • Kaihedgie


        • Anime10121

          What do ya mean? X and Classic Mega, both are incredibly different, height wise and ability wise, about the only thing they share in common is the blue, their ideals, and the mega buster.

        • Enzo

          The gameplay footage actually showed it was the classic megaman.

    • Tonton Ramos

      I’m sure he will be in the next MVC4…

  • J_Joestar

    awesome! Classic Megaman!
    wonder what moves he will have though? everything based on MM1 maybe? or maybe have a kirby-like “Ability Steal” whenever he beats an enemy?

    • AkuLord3

      Watch the trailer, it shows them

      • J_Joestar

        didn’t get a chance to look earlier (is at work)
        finally saw it and it looks awesome.
        Metal Blades being one of (if not THE) best weapons in the series being shown first feels fitting.
        Super Arm is funny too though.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Nintendo treats Megaman´╗┐ better than Capcom

    • FFmax

      Lmao, so true.

  • Anime10121

    Honestly after watching the trailer, wasn’t hyped at all until DAT MEGAMAN 2 theme, and then the Pew Pew Pew, with the abilities, and the Rock with the Man

  • komiko12

    Oh my.. *imagines Villager being beaten up by Samus Aran*
    Poor Villager, entering the world of violence hehe.

    • KingRuff

      That jerk stole Samus’ missiles right out of the air! He deserves what’s coming to him.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Well my body is simply not ready for this one lol.^_^

  • AuraGuyChris

    Sorry. Tossing money is overrated.

    Shooting them, on the other hand…

    • $29082171

      If you think he’s sucking in money, your brain will make you see that, as well as vice versa.

  • Levin_Scorpius

    Soooooo, now that we have two new characters announced, when should I expect hordes of people to begin speculating with their own (possibly insane) rosters/wishlists? (‘Cuz I already have…)

  • Sergio Brice├▒o

    Cool. One would think that Namco originals would have made an appearance too though.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Now to buy Project X Zone and Smash Bros 3DS I WILL DO THIS FOR NINTENDO AND FOR MEGAMAN!

  • Slayven19

    We all in our hearts believed that megaman would make the game and now he’s here!! I’m not going to use him though but I’m happy all the same.

  • vileBrenman

    I hope fat tekken megaman is a costume lol don’t hate me its just a joke

  • Go2hell66

    i literally have no more reason to play MvC anymore…

    • Just Tim

      …except if you want to play as Dick Rider in MAHVEL ZOMBIZ, BAYBEE!!!

  • FFmax

    Holy shit!

  • KingRuff

    Megaman took on all of Nintendo and held his ground! That is why he deserves to be in Smash. Oh and also I see that the trophy/toys theme is gone in this one. From what the villager section showed, they are actually being invited to a tournament Tekken style. If that’s the case this will be the first time the actual characters fight each other.

    • Ben Sylvia

      But hopefully trophies are still in, otherwise I won’t have anything to do.

      • KingRuff

        Yeah I still would prefer to have something to collect. Even if the characters themselves aren’t trophies, who’s to say the trophies can’t still be there ?

  • Mavalex

    Dat Megaman death animation


    • J_Joestar

      Yellow Devil should be a fun SSE boss.

  • James Enk

    hours upon hours of local multiplayer fan mostly maybe a bit of online too


    So yeah, I’m definitely having Megaman be my main along with Luigi this time around.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Cool, Mega Man is in it.

    I’m still hoping for Klonoa though, especially since this game is partly a Namco effort.

    • puchinri

      That would really be lovely. Especially since the first game got a remake on the Wii (and hopefully 2 will be remade for Wii U? Or they could give us an original Klonoa title, I won’t complain).

      • Spirit Macardi

        I just think Smash Bros would be perfect, since it’s basically the one-stop shop for turning niche franchises into cash cows. See Earthbound, Fire Emblem, and Kid Icarus.

        Plus the Smash Bros games are pretty much just 2.5D platformers with fighting elements, and Klonoa was the pioneer of that genre.

        And Namco owes us for ignoring his anniversary, not putting him in PXZ, and removing his cameo from the Tales of Hearts remake…

        • puchinri

          That’s also a very good point~.

          Also, all of that makes me hurt again. ;u;

  • I’ll take Mega Man, but I think many of us, myself included, were hoping for Scrooge McDuck to be playable :)

    • J_Joestar

      well it isn’t impossible (just improbable), the whole cast hasn’t been revealed yet.

  • Namuro

    I remember seeing a lot of people commented that they want MegaMan to be in the new Smash Bros. and I thought to myself “that’d be nice, but heh, what are the chances.”

    And then blam! there he is! This is just awesome beyond words…

    Also, I like how they based his looks and expression on the classic sprite. That stoic face is just priceless.

  • TheExile285

    I would have preferred X but this is much better than nothing! (or that fat **** in SxT…)

  • A bit nonplussed that the Smash Bros. trailer was entirely prerendered, but I guess that’s pretty much to be expected given how early in development it still is. It’s kind of miraculous that they have anything to show at all. I’m guessing we won’t be seeing the game until 2015.

    Also surprised that the first new third-party character revealed for the game wasn’t from a Namco-owned property.

  • Also: I hope Snake isn’t going anywhere. He was one of my mains in Brawl.

    Wouldn’t mind if they changed him into Kiefer Big Boss, though.

  • MrJechgo

    Guts Arm: MM1
    Metal Blade/Leaf Shield/Crash Bomber: MM2
    Hard Knuckle/Spark Shot: MM3
    Flame Blast: MM6
    Slash Claw: MM7
    Flame Sword: MM8
    Hmmm… no weapon from MM4, 5, 9 and 10 yet… I’m eager to see that :)

  • KingGunblader

    I need to see more RPG characters in this game, especially since PSABR completely failed to deliver in that regard. Also, I hope they get rid of Zero Suit Samus. I want to use dat Zero Laser without any caveats.

  • Henry

    Now if we can get into the Wright direction with this game, it would be epic!

  • Finally.

  • Miss_Madness
  • mike dickson

    holy shit mega man is alive for one game that not’s his on game its a freaking miracle im so happy i could cry

  • Testsubject909

    Megaman with Metal Blade?

    Overkill! Woo! Totally gonna play him.

  • Testsubject909

    Okay. I just saw the trailer for Megaman in Super Smash. Sorry for the double post.

    I am now going to buy a Wii U and a 3DS asap. MEGAMAN! MEGAMAN! MEGAMAN!
