Street Fighter and Mega Man are both celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year, which is quite a feat. To celebrate both of their birthdays a special fan-made game called Street Fighter X Mega Man will be made available to download on your PC through the Capcom Unity website on 17th December.
Street Fighter X Mega Man was created and developed by Singaporean Seow Zong Hui who naturally had direction and support from Capcom itself. The game sees you play as Mega Man as he blasts through eight new Street Fighter themed levels each one with their own Street Fighter inspired boss. Naturally each boss has a special power to use against Mega Man; Ryu for example utilises his world famous Hadouken attack!
Christian Svensson, SVP of Consumer Software at Capcom USA had this to say about the upcoming release:
Our fans have been so supportive of the 25th Anniversary efforts on Street Fighter, that we wanted to provide one last surprise and token of our appreciation. This game symbolizes the passion and dedication of our fans and with the 25th Anniversary of Mega Man coming up, we felt it was our duty to bring this wonderful experience to everyone who has shared the last 25 years with us and both of these celebrated franchises.
Have a look at the trailer for the game below and let us know what you think. We must warn you though, it's truly amazing and may cause mild hysteria.
