The most recent Mega Man game—Mega Man Xover—isn’t quite what fans have been hoping for, but Capcom say that there will be more Mega Man games to look forward to on both consoles and portables in the future.


The November issue of Nintendo Power magazine features an interview with Capcom USA senior vice-president, Christian Svensson, where he is asked about the future of Mega Man. Fansite, Rockman Corner, has transcribed Svensson’s answer to the question. This is what he had to say:


I can say with certainty that you’ve not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we’ll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you’re going to enjoy over the next 25 years. That said, an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details.


Mega Man’s 25th anniversary is this year, and festivities in North America will kick off sometime in December. Both Capcom USA and Japan will be carrying out their own separate celebrations in honour of Mega Man’s 25th.
