Capcom To Reveal More Info On Mega Man's 25th Anniversary At Comic-Con 2013

Posted by Damien McFerran

Is a new game on the way?

Capcom is rolling like a tank at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and will showcase a wide range of its forthcoming titles — including Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies and DuckTales Remastered.

However, it's the tantalising promise of fresh information regarding Mega Man's 25th Anniversary that caught our eye. After warning fans to "keep expectations in check" last year, Capcom has remained tight-lipped about how it intends to mark the occasion of Mega Man's birthday, although the fact that he has been included in the upcoming Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS hints that big things could be happening behind closed doors.

Do you think this is just wishful thinking, or could Capcom finally be giving the Blue Bomber the birthday celebration he deserves? Post a comment to share your feelings on the matter.

Best case scenario: they'll publicly apologize for everything bad they've done regarding the Blue Bomber, and finish Legends 3, Maverick Hunter, etc.

Now that would be quite the turnaround for his anniversary.

It would be nice to know when Comic Con actually takes place so we can get our bodies ready.

Capcom is no good any more. Only their franchise series have significant value while everything else is filled with mediocrity. I'm more interested in platinum games since they have people who worked at capcom during their glory days.

Had a feeling on this for a few months. Expect a new Megaman game by Christmas. All the crying may just have payed off.

Capcom have been given a really big hype for the character with all the build up his year and the Smash Bros addition. There is no better time to attempt a resurrection for Megaman.

Incidentally, I get the feeling the unexpected Street Fighter IV DLC recently announced is a precursor to the Final Fight 25th anniversary. 3 of the 4 characters announced are from the game, with the 5 likely to be Haggar. I personally think Capcom is trying to go back to the franchises people know and love.

Bring back and release Mega Man Legends 3 for 3DS, please Capcom, I want a sequel to this series. If not Legends 3, maybe a 16-bit Mega Man X game, none of that 3D Mega Man X crap.

A Mega man 11 would absolutely blow my mind. But in this day and age i've learnt to keep my expectations with Crapcom ultra low...At best we'll probably get a box of Proto man crayola markers. Seems like all i have to look forward to everything 'mega' these days is dipping into the older titles(6,7,X3,Zero 2 ect) that i still haven't tackled which is great and all + reading the new Archie comics. :p

Mega Man 11, with updated graphics in HD but playing like the NES games. Better yet: make each boss command not a single stage, but a 5-6 stage world, like Super Mario or Donkey Kong Country worlds.

This would probably make me cry tears of joy.

I'd really like to buy the remaining 6 Mega Man games on the Wii U eShop, as well as the entire X series.

A new Mega Man game would be amazing.

Oh the answer is easy here. They'll announce a side scrolling style mega man project or that mega man legends 3 is back to life to then rev up expectations, show off some art, ask for fan help, and then cancel it again. They love to get a rise out of people.

I don't trust capcom with anything megaman related anymore. I wish they would just sell the megaman IP to nintendo. Then nintendo can out source it to inticreates.

As others have stated, I would like to see them bring back all the games they canned, especially Mega Man Universe.
