  • Jesse

    You guys are setting up a joke, aren’t you? XD

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    I don’t think that’s ‘mourning’ …

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    Can you post the all stars news about the Gravity Rush stage and Dart?

    • XiaomuArisu

      Wait what?
      They are still making DLC´s?
      Edit: oh…cancelnd Dart,abe and the Gravity Rush stage.What a pity

      • Brandonmkii

        It’s not DLC, it’s just some leaked concept art.

        thanks didn’t see it before

    It looks like the Pikmin murdered Megaman. The white one is like, “Guys! Guys! Let’s get OUT OF HERE BEFORE WE ARE CAUGHT!”

    Maybe Capcom giving Megaman to Nintendo wasn’t such a good idea…..

    • The purple one is placing a flower over his corpse.

      • RisukuAozora

        Some days I just feel like a purple Pikmin.

    • Just Tim

      Nah. If anything, I can see Nemesis, murdering Mega Man, Brad Vickers-style.

    clever title is clever

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Pikmin pls

  • Anime10121

    Smash Brothers really IS a representation of its franchises.

    R.I.P Megaman u were awesome!

  • Antixono

    Capcom,what have you done to Megaman?!

    • Just Tim

      More like, “Capcom acknowledges that Americans are necro for zombies to the point Nemesis will take over Classic Mega Man’s roster spot for SSB4 and become Capcom’s official mascot.”

  • Is the Megaman screen a hint at something?

  • Shadowman

    Hahaha I see what did there, Nintendo

  • Remlot

    R.I.P. Rest in Pikmin, Megaman.

  • Subaru

    Haha, the white Pikmin “Move along folks, nothing to see here!”

  • Just Tim

    Does this mean Nemesis gets to cross over to SSB? :P

  • Rohan Kishibe

    In all honesty Nintendo would do a better job with Mega Man compared to what Capcom has been doing.

    • Anime10121

      Not hard to have a better output than nothing…

    • J_Joestar

      All of his best recent appearances are all outsourced ones (Smash, PXZ, fan game), really wish they would just outsource development of the games to Inafune, iirc as some point he even offered to have his new company finish MML3.

      • NimbusStev

        I still stand by the theory that they will hand the series off to WayForward if they do a good job with Duck Tales.

  • Kaihedgie
  • Strain42

    And not a single comment made about the Villager riding a gyroid like a rocket? That’s what caught my eye the most.

    • Ferrick

      the poor gyroid… kidnapped by villager and used as his personal rocket

      • M’iau M’iaut

        He’s the Villager. Like he gives a crap about your concerns.

        • Ferrick

          i tried asking him once on why did tom nook and his shop disappeared, but he didn’t say anything… he just pulled out his axe that had bloodstains on it… i found my answer

      • Showmeyomoves

        To be fair, he didn’t exactly “kidnap” him. He just dug up his corpse from the ground and is using it as a means of transportation.

    • Niermyico

      I actually caught my eye too since this is the first time seeing him doing that. How many other moves does he have?! lol!

      All that’s missing are the Bees.

  • Herok♞

    Sorry Nintendo you should be mourning a rotted corpse by now.

    • Testsubject909

      Rusted, not rotted

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        Super Rusted Franchise! MegaMan!

    • J_Joestar

      but Megaman doesn’t leave a corpse, just flashing balls flying in all directions!

  • KnifeAndFork

    Even Nintendo knows the trolling of Capcom this gen

  • Nanaki

    My heart skipped a beat for a second while my eyes nearly glazed over from the feeling of another loss…
    Why’ you do these things to us Ishaan??

    … a bit unrelated to the topic, but seeing Sammy in these screens reminds me of how much she kinda sucked in Brawl.

    … I felt she was much more vicious in Melee… hell everyone was due to that exploit… but it just saddens me because this is Sammy’s SUIT we’re talking about, here… her SUIT.

    … here’s hoping she’s more of a threat this time around.

    • Kelohmello

      What exploit made her more vicious in Melee?

      • Linhua

        … it wasn’t just Sammy that was vicious… it was everyone. It was that Wave Dashing thing. That made EVERYONE vicious. I went to the MLG Tourney in Pittsburgh and sadly found out about this whole new game changer in the middle of the damn thing… really took the game to the next level with both competitive play and especially speed. It was like showing up to class the next day and having NO idea that you had some SERIOUS homework due. I got there and EVERYONE was using it. It was like a SSBM Tournament Standard. If you didn’t Wave Dash… you weren’t winning anything.

        … I think it worked best for Fox though because he had an ability of his own that could be coupled with the Wave Dash Exploit that gave him the green light for some pretty mean set-ups.

        … have you not seen the types of set ups and combos people did with this exploit…?

        … best ones to me were Zelgadis’ Fox Combo Video:


        (My two favorite parts were 3:08 & 3:18)

        … and Mike Nasty’s Sammy Combo Video:


        (I love those amazing come backs from death.)

        … Sammy had a secondary exploit of her own as well which was called the Super Wave Dash that she uses with her Morph Ball Bombs. It almost kinda made up for her missing Speed Booster that she uses in several of her games… but I don’t know how well it actually works in the heat of battle. It seems to be something she could use for evasions/retreats and offensive follow-ups. You’ll probably notice that those Morph Bombs are responsible for the a fair amount of her frame resets she does.

        … if you’re interested… here’s the demo to Sammy’s Super Wave Dash:


        … gotta love that Fox Remix though.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I blame the villager!

  • OlimacFTW

    Samus: I´m going to avenge you, Mega Man.

  • Not dead just sleeping or hung over.

  • I will admit I lawled, and then I realized that the pikmin had a reason to mourn. Le sigh…Mega Man, we hardly knew ye…

  • Yan Zhao

    LMAO, even Nintendo knows.

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester


  • Cameron Ward

    Pikmin are like “quick loot the body and we shall take back his body to feed our leader”

  • Don’t worry i’m sure megaman has an E-tank behind a paywall somewhere, not sure why but samus turns me on in these screenshots

  • David García Abril

    As they would say in TVTropes: “Getting Crap Pass the Radar”…

  • Speaking of salt in the wound…

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Hahaha, awesome ! :D

  • Internet is Crash

    Mega Man would make an excellent part of Olimar’s ship!

  • JustThisOne

    Nah, I bet they just had a sick party and Megaman’s just passed out on the floor. Purple pikmin is probably just trying to get him up.

  • igotareallybigthingwithcars

    Can somebody fill me in on the deets? I seriously have no idea about how the screenshot of megaman was an “inside joke”. I’m not really into the lore of Pikmin and I am just an average fan of Mega Man to know that Capcom has already dropped him.


    • Ixbran

      Capcom is in the process of slowly killing off the megaman franchise. So far they have announced multiple Megaman games, about 4 or 5 i think, that all were eventually got shut down. One was Megaman Legends 3, another was an online megaman game with 4 player multiplayer, another was an FPS Style megaman which featured a more realistic android-esq Megaman (IE he didn’t have a humanoid face).

      All in all the Megaman franchise is, currently, slowly dying and it seems Capcom just doesn’t care.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Link: I wanna date with Wii Fit!

    Samus: No! Me and Wii Fit are going shopping!

    Wii Fit Trainer: This isn’t the Yoga I asked for…

    P.S. Thank you Sakurai for a clever pic with Megaman I hope they know this…

  • vileBrenman

    The pikmin should take megaman’s corpse back to the pod and make him PIKMAN!

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      How bout a ROCK PIKMAN?

  • TWE

    It’d be nice if this was setting up an alt costume for the blue bomber. Like one of his predecessors. Stuck on the moon. Had a game on the N64.
