Mega Man Creator Keiji Inafune Working On Spiritual Successor Mighty No. 9

Wii U version added as stretch goal to Kickstarter campaign

Capcom may be content to allow Mega Man's 25th birthday to pass without a brand-new adventure, but creator Kenji Inafune has taken matters into his own hands and is attempting to make a spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber via Kickstarter. Mighty No.9 is Mega Man in all but name,...

No new game from Capcom again... again

Mega Man is still in his 25th Anniversary Year, and what delights he's received as promotional gifts in his honour. We've had themed USB drives, miniature statues, and even a Rush tissue box. And yet, as our imaginary real-life Blue Bomber opens present after present, the one thing he wants the most isn't...

It only has 432 pages...

As we all know by now, Capcom has been sanctioning various celebratory products for Mega Man's 25th Anniversary. It may have been saving the best non-game product for late in the day, however, as Udon Entertainment has given more details on the brand new official series art book — MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official...

An Official Mega Man [Board] Game is Coming!

We're getting closer, at least

The 25th Anniversary of Mega Man has seen the series honoured in myriad ways, from a spot reserved for the Blue Bomber in the next Super Smash Bros. to, um, a Rush tissue pouch. The main thing that really seems to have been missing is an actual new game for Mega Man to call hi

Fan Group Prepares to Release 8-Bit Demake of Mega Man Legends 3

Former game staffers contribute

For those that didn't know, this past Saturday the Mega Rock Fan Fiesta event took place in Tokyo, and at the shindig a rather surprising fan project was announced. As the Blue Bomber's fans continue to bemoan the cancellation and abandonment of Mega Man Legends 3, a Facebook group called Get Me Off the Moon —...

Game Gear Mega Man Could be Destined for the 3DS Virtual Console

Seems likely thanks to ESRB rating

We've sure had a lot of retro Mega Man on Nintendo systems recently, with both the 3DS and Wii U Virtual Consoles bringing us fresh experiences that we hadn't enjoyed since the Wii Virtual Console; sarcasm aside, they've been additional opportunities for newcomers to the series to see what fans have been banging on...

Mega Man 6 (3DS eShop / NES)

Mega Man's NES swan song

In 1993, the SNES was already out and Capcom was about to release Mega Man X, but they just couldn't let themselves to say goodbye to the NES and made one last 8-bit Mega Man game for the beloved system. Mega Man 6 was released so late into the system's life that Capcom decided to not even publish the game in Europe — this...

A Miiverse Adventure With Mega Man X

Time for some Megan Man, er, Mega Man

A little while ago we reviewed Mega Man X on the Wii U Virtual Console, and liked it a lot. We happen to think this is a brilliant game, but it may nevertheless seem peculiar to those encountering it for the first time. We decided to try and see the game through fresh eyes while working on the review, and below...

Mega Man Zero 2 (Game Boy Advance)

Zero times two

Just one year after Mega Man Zero, Inti Creates released a sequel. That might sound a bit quick, but Mega Man Zero 2 is no mindless cash-in. It took the sturdy foundation set by its predecessor and built upon it in impressive ways, while also smoothing out the rough edges. On top of that it wove an excellent narrative of its own and...

Mega Man's Dad Is "Ecstatic" That The Blue Bomber Is In Smash Bros.

Proud father

Mega Man creator Kenji Inafune is one of Capcom's most famous former employees, yet he appeared to part company with the publisher under a cloud. You might assume this could make Inafune rather bitter about how his former creations are being used by Capcom, but you couldn't be further from the truth. Speaking to VideoGamer, Inafune...

Mega Man 4 (Wii U eShop / NES)

The Blue Bomber jumps onto the GamePad

In 1991 the world got a fourth entry in what had quickly shaped up to be one of the NES's most popular series. This game was Mega Man 4, and expectations were high. After all, the first game laid down a solid — if static — template that resonated very well with gamers, the second game refined the formula...

Mega Man 3 (Wii U eShop / NES)

The Blue Bomber jumps onto the GamePad

It's fitting that Mega Man 3 introduces our hero's antagonistic, cocksure older brother Proto Man, as the game itself seems to eternally duke it out with its own brother Mega Man 2 for the coveted title of Best in Series. But wherever you may fall on the question, there's no doubt that this third installment in...

Mega Man 2 (Wii U eShop / NES)

The Blue Bomber jumps onto the GamePad

In 1987, Capcom released the original Mega Man. It was well-received by both gamers and critics, but it was not much of a financial success. Over the course of the next year, however, Mega Man 2 was developed as a labour of love by Keiji Inafune and his team, alongside other projects that were expected to be...

Capcom continues to celebrate the Blue Bomber's 25th anniversary

It's been a good day for Mega Man; Capcom's hero is the new challenger in the hotly anticipated Super Smash Bros. title for the Wii U and 3DS, and alongside the bomber's debut title for the NES on the Wii U eShop, Mega Man 2, 3 and 4 have appeared on the Virtual Store. Mega Man 2, 3...

While this year has been a celebration of the Mega Man franchise's 25th Anniversary, Capcom's mainly been offering soundtracks, USB pen drives, laptop skins and other non-gaming products.

Super fighting robot

Capcom has been very fast with releasing the original Mega Man series on 3DS Virtual Console, and now we're already up to the fifth entry. As you might expect, Mega Man 5 is quite similar to the four games before it; eight new Robot Masters have appeared, and it's up to Mega Man to stop them and their leader, who appears to be...
