If yesterday's TV series announcement wasn't enough, word has it Capcom might have sworn in a new, dedicated Mega Man producer. The news comes from the officially-licensed Mega Man board game Kickstarter, where Jasco Games claims a new individual is at the reigns. The new producer is said to be working close with Jasco on finalizing the board game's visual assets. No name was provided.
Pending official word from Capcom, I think it's safe to take this statement as an unconfirmed rumor. In all honesty it would not surprise me in the slightest if it were true. From an influx of legacy titles on Virtual Console and PSN to the new cartoon, there is some viable evidence to suggest someone is dictating the course of the franchise from here on out. New game or no, things aren't as idle as they have been.
The wheels of change are starting to spin, I believe. With a new TV series on the horizon and now the possibility of new leadership, it's clear Capcom has not given up on old blue just yet.
