Capcom Wishes Everyone A Merry 'Mega Man' Christmas

Posted by Orla Madden

Happy Holidays from its blue hero

Capcom has treated its fans with a festive tribute to one of its most famous franchises, Mega Man. The blue-suited protagonist is seen battling his way through numerous winter levels spanning across various Mega Man titles, with 'O Come All Ye Faithful' providing some Christmas cheer throughout the video.

As well as wishing its community Merry Christmas, we imagine Capcom is psyching the fans up for a whole year of Mega Man 25th Anniversary celebrations in 2013.

This music wasn't composed by Capcom... It was composed by Joseph Collins for a Fan Made Game by ACESpark called Megaman's Christmas 2. The remix is called "O Come All Ye Dreadful".

I love you Mega Man.
Capcom not so much.
The creator had to actually ASK to be linked after the video was uploaded.

@Hyperstar96 Oh come on! It's christmas, and the fact that they still wanted to share something MM related is a start. I personally like it. That being said I don't want Mega man 11 to be made by a fan, however

This is really cool and Nintendo Life should make a blog post dedicated to it so it gets more notice. This is a Fan video of what SHOULD be Mega Man X9 in honor of Mega Man's 25th!

@theblackdragon Don't worry about that. Remember when SF was gone for so long and people wanted it back? It's the same with MM, so it'll happen soon. Keep in mind it's hard for Capcom to do MM after Inafune quit, so that's where the main problem is. It's not like Capcom made EVERY major mega man game either, the GB titles were developed by a completely different company without Inafune, and those still did well.

Ya merry christmas to you too Crapcom...Thanks for giving us a mediocre, souless fan offering that you had absolutely no part in aside from your stamp of approval. It doesn't even 'touch' or match up to the level of quality of the classic 8-bit mega man games. I think it was a lousy semi-unproffesional lame move by releasing this. EXTREMELY & beyond dissapointing considering it's Mega Man's 25th Anniversary....

I was expecting maybe a Mega Man 11, X9 or Legends 3 ressurection? Maybe a couple of awesome mega related announcements perhaps? Nah, maybe that's asking too much from a dinkwad company that practically forced Inafune to leave because of the lackluster & fierce working conditions. Get your act together capcom. Lay off the street fighter, Stop selling out the Resident Evil franchise to the Western COD/shooter crowd(RE6 was a disaster) and give us some proper Mega Man games that you actually created! :p

@WaveBoy Capcom never made the mega man GB games either. In SFXMM's credits, you actually can see that they had a lot to do with the game in terms of instruction details (They told the creator what to do)

@EvisceratorX
lol. Since when was i ever fuming? :p
I don't get angry over videogames, unless i'm trying to beat Batman on the NES.lol And be thankful i got anything? To me, Mega Man Vs Street Farter isn't anything. RE6 makes me cry zombie tears and Power stone and Viewtiful Joe seem to be both stuck in
a Capcom coma. :p They should be thankful people are even buying RE6 and that stupid I-Phone MMX game. Re-releasing Mega Man 1-6 on the 3DS's VC is hardly anything to be excited about, if you're like me who prefers to play them on the big screen. They're already on the Wii's VC MM6 aside. So ya, overall giant enormous dissapointment on their part for pretty much doing absolutely nothing on the blue bombers anniversary. But eh, personally i've still got quite a few mega man games to play. 6, 7, V for the Gameboy, plus X2,X3, and Zero 2, 3 and 4.So ya, i.....Gues i'm covered for now.lol

@ogo79
I'm bouncin' with Axel, Blaze and Skate so he's basically screwed. B-)
Also, I'm hoping Waffle Woman makes her hot syrupy' debut in MM11, along with
everybodies favorite Robo Veggienator Broccoli boy.lol

Seeing those stages from Mega Man 7, X1, and X3 makes me nostalgic...

Let's hope they reuse the Legends 3 assets in another game and do it justice...

The Mega Man X series was complete from Keiji Inafune's point of view with #5, since Zero's origins and story-relevant decisions were elaborated upon. Everything in the X series after X5 were just cash ins. The Zero series for the GBA continued after X5 to complete the X/Zero storyline. Though Capcom went ahead with ZX, there hasn't been a title in that series for years now.

Mega Man 9 and 10 already had a lot of fan support and input, so if they made 11, that trend would probably continue upward.

I just posted an entire article on my site discussing Capcom and its relationship to Mega Man. It's a shame that such a once great company has fallen so far in such a short period of time. Personally, I feel the fan community has done a much better job of supporting Mega Man than Capcom ever could. I just did an entire run this month showcasing a small fraction of the many excellent fan works for Mega Man and it has shown me that the fans just have more respect for the Blue Bomber than Capcom.

@Paulcs2128

If that's true, Capcom has once again disappointed me. Just like with the whole Mega Man x Street Fightet debacle, they're piggybacking on someone elses work in a transparent attempt to win Mega Man fans over.

It isn't working Capcom. Stop. Please.
