It appears Mega Man Universe's playable cast won't be limited to just Capcom and Mega Man characters. Announced during a special stage event at the Tokyo Game Show today, Gachapin, a popular children's television hero in Japan, is next in line to get Megafied.
Gatchapin, dubbed 'Megapin' for the occasion, will be obtainable via a future DLC update. What's more, Megapin won't be the last collaborative character, it seems. Coinciding with his reveal, Capcom opened up a new section on their official Universe website called "Tie-ups", a space devoted solely to collaborative characters.
The possibilities for other, non-Capcom characters could truly be endless. That said, what kind of non Mega Man/Capcom characters would you like to play as?
