Soon You May Be Able to Enter the MegaMan Universe

Cryptic trademark and internal document hints at Blue Bomber MMO

Bear in mind before you get all excited and jump into your handmade MegaMan outfit that this is just a rumour for now, but it's interesting enough to report on.

A few weeks back, Capcom filed a trademark for MegaMan Universe, with no clue as to the game's content. In a recent finance report, Capcom revealed its collaboration with Korean games developer Neowiz on upcoming title MegaMan Online.

Could MegaMan Universe be a console adaptation? The trademark certainly fits the sound of an MMO, and with Capcom's confirmation that an online Blue Bomber title is in the works the idea gains a drop of credence.

Either way, MegaMan fans will be well catered-for this year, with MegaMan Zero Collection on the way to DS this summer, but the possibility of online blasting is certainly an intriguing proposition.

Oldie news. Heard about this last week. Intriguing, but somehow I doubt it'll come to Wii.

OMG. I never thought my embarrassing photo from the Mega Man convention would go online. It seemed cool 10 years ago...

Just kiddin'.

I wonder how character customizing would work? Maybe like you assemble your basic bot, then add chips and armor for various things.
Or, what time period or era would htis be in classic, X, zero, or battle network ugh lol.

Well, Cryptic made a good MMO called City Of Heroes. Hope this turns out true and turns out good.

If this is featured on the Wii with a similar online system to MH Tri, then count me in!

Somehow, I picture this as being kinda like the Battle Network games. Since those are based around the concept of an MMO...but who knows.

Hopefully it's a console game. I've got an Xbox, so I hope it comes to it. My PC sucks, so if it's PC only I'll be a sad panda.

Or maybe I won't. I can't imagine this would work too well, but Capcom will find a way.

Or not, I don't know.

I hope it plays like Legends, but I can't see any megaman game working in an MMO formula...



Lurch said:

i hope its somewhat along the lines of "create your own rm with a cool customizeable-editor and then go online with it"

It'd be wonderful =)



Noire said:

If this game is anywhere similar to what people are speculating...

ZippoLighterChick is gooooooooooo~!

As long as you don't have to pay a monthly fee I'll be slightly interested. I have a thing about paying for something you already payed for in the first place.

that strapline is misleading. I though they meant Cryptic - as in the developers of Star Trek Online and Champions online - were making Mega Man Universe for Capcom:) Thank god I misread it; Cryptic doesn't strike me as a good studio.

Anyway, I'm hoping that MMU is Capcom's Littlebigplanet. A "Make Your Own Mega Man" game where gamers everywhere share their content. With unlimited levels, the name "Universe" would be nice and descriptive, no? Not to mention that Mega Man Powered Up - on frickin' PSP - pioneered that years before LittleBigPlanet was even announced...
