Mega Man Playable In Street Fighter X Tekken? Seems Like It

Well, we saw this one coming. Jump to 3:09 below for a little tease...



No doubt, that's Pac-Man and... an anatomically correct Mega Man? Could be Frank West in his Mega Man duds, but I'm beginning to wonder if Lupinko's "Bad Box Art" Mega Man comment holds some credence...


What say you, keen-eyed fans?

  1. Its definitely Mega, but really? Vita exclusive? I sure hope not.

  2. All those other characters were part of lupinko's list so I'd say it lines up. And it's not like it'll be unequal treatment--Pac-Man has to ride on top of a Mokujin!

  3. It bad box art mm. Now they are trolling. Before I would let all the other cameos pass as fanservice, but this is trolling.

  4. Sorry, but I just CANT see megaman in there o.o'

  5. My god, they're trolling us.

  6. Holy shit, what the fuck is wrong with Capcom? Did they seriously think this is what anyone wanted?

  7. 1) They have the gall to throw more random Servbot heads in their fighting games after cancelling Mega Man Legends 3.

    2) They have the gall to continue with the "bad box art Mega Man" jokes after cancelling Mega Man Universe.

    3) "STREET FIGHTER CROSS TEKKEN". If you are not from -STREET FIGHTER- and if you are not from -TEKKEN- you -DO NOT BELONG- in -STREET FIGHTER CROSS TEKKEN-.

    On top of that, this game is just another boring 2D Fighter, so what the hell is keeping them from taking whatever they've made for Mega Man as a character and sticking him into -MARVEL VS CAPCOM- where -HE'S ACTUALLY WANTED-?!

    What were they thinking?!

  8. And immediately the fans RAGE.

    I'm not entirely happy about this but its something. At least it is not a skinjob like "Xero" in UMVC3. And hopefully it IS the original Bad Box Art Mega Man and not a derivative. There can be only one.

    I like the character and he's a great meme among fans. But to include him only on the Vita? Are they serious? At least make him DLC for the console version (which would ALSO piss people off, but at least Megaman fans would only have to pay a few dollars instead of a couple hundred for a Vita and SFxT).

  9. Going by the shape of the gun, it's Mega Man 2's bad box art Mega Man.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Really, the crap American nes box art mega man? Typical of capcom to let down the fans, this is getting rediculous.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Why is it that i am pissed off by this?

    ReplyDelete
  12. You know what? I was pissed before when I found out they were using BBAMM, but some fellow fans helped me realize that it's probably for the best. After all, that is the version that fits in well with the SF universe.

    Now if only they didn't make him an incompetent, bungling buffoon, then I wouldn't have any complaints. you guys sure Ono was a Megaman fan?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Honestly to see Megaman in a game where hes playable in a game, its something at least.

    My reaction to this is much different than when i saw the costume for UMVC3. At that time fans had a legit reason to get mad. Bad Box art Megaman was gonna be playable in Universe so ive got no complaints. If anything he is the "original original" Megaman.

    When Ono Trolls, i find it funny. When Nitsuma does it, I just want to punch him in the face

  14. Voice acting would be icing on the cake!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Okay, up until now I never subscribed to the belief that Capcom was trolling. But this makes me wonder. What the hell is wrong with them?! This was a chance to get some fans back, and they just spit in our faces again! It's not funny or charming, it just reminds us how much they suck!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mega Man fans hate fun.

    I'm sorry, but just about everyone here is proving that true.

    Grow some thicker skin. You're not going to get what you want (whatever it is) by acting butthurt.

  17. Your friendly, neighborhood Toc-ManJanuary 17, 2012 at 1:52 PM

    So Rockfans and Pac-feverists, I ask this of you. Which series is getting trolled more with this reveal?

    -MegaMan fans who have had both announced games canceled right in front of there eyes; leaving crappy cameos (Seriously capcom? the BBA Megaman like stems from IRONY.) and sub-par merch in there wake?
    or
    -Pac-man fans, who've had to deal with too many redesigns, shite looking merch (The proposed tv series looked horrid, and the Hot-topic merch ironically isn't all that hot either) and limited numbers of titles that are actually decent (As well as no games that try and move the series past it's "lolnostalgia" stigmatism)

    Both sides are hurting, really.

    "Megaman fans hate fun"

    I love fun.I don't like being made fun of.And this pisses me off.Remember a guy saying "Blue guy will make people rage" a while ago? I think this vague trolling has become clear now

    ReplyDelete
  19. Now that I've thought about it--if this is indeed BBA-MM we're getting (or a variant thereof)...why? If it's so that he doesn't clash too much with the other fighters, then why is Pac-Man totally unchanged?

    (And before anyone else gets all holier-than-thou on the people angered by this, please consider--if THIS is one of those "things" planned for MM's 25th anniversary, the franchise might REALLY be in deep shit.)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dear Capcom....

    GET THE FUCK OUT WITH YOUR FAVOURITISM.

    Seriously. It's bad enough that you cancelled Legends 3 on 3DS buyers, but to shove him into a fighting game where he doesn't belong as well as a bunch of other characters that completely don't belong?(F*ck you PS players I don't care.)

    Cole, those cats, and PACMAN and MEGAMAN don't belong in these games. If anything, Megaman AND Pacman should be in ALL versions, just like how you teased us when the first trailers came out.

    Every move your doing with him is wrong. First you put him in a game where he doesn't belong and won't be himself. Second, it's the wrong fighting game. Third, you make it on what is currently a failing console(with no signs of pulling a 3DS). 4th, you use the god damn form that people view as a joke?

    This is pathetic. Let me guess, did you try to do BBA Pacman too but Namco told you to fuck off when you showed them?

  21. *face/palm*

    Welp, they've done it again.
    Yep, again.

  22. I love bad box art Megaman... But I wasn't sold on this game. Maybe now I will take a look at it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. looks more like frank west megaman

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm okay with this, in fact, I'm kinda hyped.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Now hold on a second guys, I'm just as upset about this as anyone, but hey...Let's look on the bright side. There is probably going to be DLC (costume change) and a different color palette for the guy so you never know, it might not be so lame after all. At least we're getting something and no, I can't say I'm gonna get a Vita for it, I can say that I'll continue to support the Blue Bomber in any form or game he's in. But I will say this, that it does get frustrating, and it does kind of SEEM like they're making fun of us at times. Maybe they're not, maybe they really are, only they know the truth. Hopefully they will actually look at what the fans want, and see what it is they gotta do to shape things up for the franchise. Until then, just keep your fingers crossed and don't give up!

  26. If it's the Mega Man from Mega Man 10's cover, I'm cool with that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm actually looking forward to this as well. Even if it is Bad Box Art Mega Man, I'm still curious with what he'll be like. I'll be keeping an eye on this game.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm sorry, but I'm with the others in saying I can't see it from just the outline. Plus... I'm sure that's great for fans who are also fighting game enthusiasts, but... well, I'm not one of them. Well, this is the year of the 25th anniversary... they've GOT to have something... right? RIGHT?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks like Mega Man from the Mega Man 10 boxart...Ewwww...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Cool! This is EXACTLY what the fans wanted.....lol.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think it's hilarious if Bad Box Art Mega Man was in it. I wonder if he will have a manly gruff voice or if he will still be voiced by a japanese girl.

    1. OH DEAR GOD! if it is bbamm with the japanese girl's voice I will laugh so damn hard! XD

  32. As much as I love to see megaman back in some sort of lime light.... there is just so much wrong with this.

    1) This is street fighter vs Tekken. When did it become Street fighter vs Tekken vs what ever we think fan boys will pay for dlc?

    2) If the outline is mega man then its either Frank West (which in the end is still not Mega man) or the bad box art Mega man. Which if its the latter then your really grasping at a very small group of fans. I'm pretty sure you probably have a bigger fan base for GBD! and that is really saying something.

    3) Vita only? and that's if Mega Man is that outline. Now remember this is a character that was slashed from its own game, not allowed in the big game which was Capcom vs marvel even thou he was in the past ones. Now the same guys that saw no fan base for any of this are going to aim for Bad art Mega Man fans for the vita (which is a brand new portable like the 3ds was) and make him probably dlc..... If that train of thought did not just blow your mind then please contact capcom and tell them you meet the requirements for a marketing job there.

    In the end even if this is a Mega Man I like, its not gonna make me get a vita for it. Getting a 3ds for Legends 3 was a hell yes! The sad thing is, they will probably judge the fan base on how many people down load the character and will green light a new Mega Man game based off of that.
    I would love to see a new Mega Man game, weather its the classics, X, EXE, Zero, ZX or hell even Star Force! I just don't see it coming and Capcom is not doing much at all for getting me to have faith in them once more.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Eh, I actually don't mind this. And as one anon said, I also tend to find Ono's trolling amusing, and Niitsuma's trolling makes me want to punch him in the face.

    Would I prefer the real Mega Man over BBA Mega Man? Of course, but since this isn't exactly the type of game where you'd expect Mega Man to appear, anyway, I don't think it's that big of a deal, and I actually welcome it.

    That being said, I also agree with Jmanfan213. If it's going to be any of the BBA Mega Men, I'm hoping it's the one from MM10. That one is pretty badass.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is like teabagging your fans at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  35. In all honesty, I'm not really gonna think too hard or harshly on this.

    SFxT is already a day-one buy for me, so having Megaman in it is more or less just a bonus. It already has every character I wanted. Can't wait to rock out with Xiaoyu and Cole.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Mugen you seem to be friends with someone talking crazy. BBA Mega is an absolutely undefined piece of concept. I don't see a particular reason "he's the best fit" when he has no definition.

    His physical build wavers on having muscular structure. But he's being teased opposite Pac Man. That kind of throws "matching the setting" out the window.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Could be Frank.

    Honestly though, would've preferred to see Sigma and his massive chin.

    ReplyDelete
  38. In all honesty, why couldn't they just have made Capcom x Namco and vice versa. It would have given both companies a lot more characters to chose from. Not to mention, what's the point of calling it SF x T (and vice versa) and adding characters that are NOT from either franchise.

    And they better not be trolling us. If so, that's low. Lower than canceling DASH 3 without the demo.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I guess Capcom wants to lose more money & customers! No sweat of my a** =D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pff... give us the real classic Mega Man or don't give us Mega Man at all.

    ReplyDelete
  41. @ShadowNeko003: Google Namco x Capcom. It's a legitimate game that came out for PS2 in Japan only. Best part of it was Legends was the Megaman representatives for it as well.

    "In all honesty, why couldn't they just have made Capcom x Namco and vice versa."

    There's already a game with the title Namco X Capcom... it's a Japanese only RPG but no they can't do that.

  43. inb4 Frank West/Dan alt costume.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I actually find this to be pretty amusing. I never expected BBA Mega Man to ever be in a game until he was teased in Universe, so for him to be in is actually pretty funny. I never had any expectation of any incarnation of Mega Man being in Street Fighter X Tekken (and I don't feel like they would fit too well), so I'm ok with this. I'm a Street Fighter fan and was already looking forward to the game, so I was planning on buying it.

    Hopefully they will include alternate costume choices to alter the design (something to actually change the model, not just the color scheme), but I'm not too concerned. If anything, I'm more annoyed Pac-Man is in the game.

    As for being exclusive to Vita..I'm not surprised, nor am I really upset about it. It's a brand new system that Sony is trying to push, so they probably had approached Capcom about trying to get extra content for that platform as an added incentive for players. If he is DLC, on the other hand, I thought that it's already confirmed that DLC is shared between platforms if you have a PS3 and Vita.

    Wouldn't call it trolling in this instance. This is some harmless fun.

    Now if they went the whole year without any Mega Man news EXCEPT for this, then that would be bad/catastrophic....Buuuut it's still January, I think we need time to wait and see lol. Hopefully we'll hear some news for Mega Man when Captivate 2011 comes around in April or at E3 months later.

  45. I was wrong guys. If this is BBAMM then its gonna be awesome. It's not trolling, it's just in good fun. I don't know what i was thinking. It will be fun to kick the Tekken and Street Fighter's asses with a joke Mega Man. At least then I can say, "You just got your ass kicked by Mega man's biggest joke. Imagine what I could have done with the real Mega Man!"

    ReplyDelete
  46. Firstly, I feel like the original post would have been funnier if it omitted "Well, we saw this one coming. Jump to 3:09 below for a little tease..." and simply started with the video followed by "Let's see that again."

    Anyways, Imma be real disappointed if that's just Frank West in Mega Man's duds. Imma be real happy if that's Mega Man, even Bad Box Art. Imma be SUPER disappointed if they're Vita exclusive like the video implies (speaking of, I'm hearing conflicting reports of whether Toro and Kuro are Vita exclusive or simply exlusive to the Sony systems; someone wanna clarify that for me?)

    MEGA MAN AND HEIHACHI 4EVA :D

  47. if this is true this is some crappy news, the american nes boxart megaman looked horrible when I was a little kid in the early 90s and it looks horrible now. capcom has really gone downhill over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I wonder why no one has noticed that MegaMan is in the classic pose where he is jumping and shooting.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's been confirmed on Shoryuken and on the official site of SFxT. That is, indeed, bad box art megaman.
