Video: Mega Man Unlimited - The Fan Game That Looks as Good as the Real Thing
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Mega in many ways
At the time of writing, it looks unlikely that Capcom will be reeling out a new Mega Man game to celebrate the series' 25th Anniversary, with free PC title Street Fighter X Mega Man and various collectibles being the offerings dished out by the publisher.
Yet while the officially sanctioned fan game released last year — as it was merely polished by Capcom staffers — was a decent if flawed effort, another PC fan title creeps closer that promises to give fans some classic Mega Man fare. In the works for a good amount of time, Mega Man Unlimited has such delicious pixel art that it was once mistaken by Capcom for its own work on a website for Mega Man 10, prompting its main man Philippe "MegaPhilX" Poulin to be invited to a Capcom event. The project now has a solid team working on it, and has moved onto the QA testing phase.
To celebrate that progress and its march towards completion, Poulin has produced a new trailer that shows plenty of impressive footage, also accompanied by a suitably cheesy J-pop tune to set the mood. This looks rather awesome to us, and we advise all Blue Bomber fans to check it out below.
