  1. Welcome back Megaman X !!! Even if it's not in a new game for yourself.
    Maybe later then? :D
    X should never die!

    1. No!

      All we need now is Vile.

    2. I support this comment. Vile would be a great addition to the roster. Spider from Command Mission would be awesome as well. (Spider vs. Gambit...make it happen Capcom.)

      Spider???? LOL!!!!! Sorry but that's NEVER EVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!!! Would of been cool though, but nope.

    4. Yeah, I know Spider's inclusion in the roster is never going to happen. But one can dream though, right?

  3. He actually made it in. Color me surprised.

    1. Me too. I mean, I am happy to see X as a playable character, but I was expecting Capcom to largely ignore Mega Man in this game. Instead, he is the first thing you see in the first official trailer. Very surprising.

      Delete
  4. I feel like Zero's moveset makes for a more natural transition to fighting games and Mega Man has been kind of disappointing in previous games, but this is still super cool and I'm really interested in seeing how X turns out. I hope they can make him good and feel like playing X. I wonder what this means for Zero though, and what other Mega Man characters might appear. Really hoping for Roll, she was fun in TvC.

    1. That's just because Capcom gave Megaman a bad moveset in previous games, not because of anything to do with the character.

      I'm curious to see if X uses a moveset similar to his attacks in PXZ.

  5. Should have had Zero help X not Ryu (freaken Ryu always up in stuff).

    1. Baby steps I guess. Do keep in mind that, given Capcom's recent sentiment towards Mega Man, a more likely scenario would have been for Ryu to come to the aid of Ken with Mega Man nowhere to be found...

      Delete
    2. Still too early to say, but I say they had their chance for that with MvC3, and they passed it up. Now it's X's turn to shine, even if it does look sorta like he's the scrappy sidekick. Just like the second trailer for Rockman Online!

  6. OMG! MEGAMAN X IS BACK! AWESOME TRAILER AND BAD-ASS SUPER HEROES! This is like the best gift ever on my birthday today. #ThankYouCapcom Now I can just hope that SIGMA WOULD BE THE FINAL BOSS! http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/sonic/images/e/e7/Semi-perfect_god_Sigma.png/revision/latest?cb=20151014221303

  7. He looks really great and I can't wait to see the gameplay tonight, I would've preferred SF Mega Man, but I honestly didn't care as long as some kind of Mega Man got in the game.
    Hopefully we'll get more Mega Man characters as well.

    1. Why SF Mega Man? I'm genuinely curious.

      Delete
    2. SF has never appeared in a fighting game, yet he has loads of potential. It's an opportunity wasted to me.

      Delete
    3. SF is also really young, and similar to EXE. If anything, the latter would be more likely.

      Delete
    4. I would've (and would still like to) see SF Mega Man join the VS. Series for his ridiculous amount of potential, his insane amount of Battle Cards, his numerous galaxy advances, his Big Bangs would be perfect hyper combos, his crazy amount of forms, his Mega Attack could make for a unique combo string mechanic, his shield could be given to him either as a tool in combat or a nice blocking animation referencing his games, And Omega-Xis in general, see in MMSF3 Mega Man gained the ability to have Omega-xis seperate and fight directly along side him, for the VS. series this could be a nice reference to Rush following Mega Man around in MvC, and It could also give SF Mega Man a Persona 4 Arena esque playstyle, with the player technically fighting as two characters.
      I also feel he fits the Super Hero theme these games love too target, all too well and I'd love to see Omega-Xis trash talk various opponents.

      He is really similar to the more popular MegaMan.EXE, but I feel a few mechanics like his MegaAttack, Big Bangs, and Omega-Xis make him the more interesting choice, one could argue EXE has plenty of Program Advances and he does, but most of them are basically weapon + weapon + weapon = bigger more powerful weapon, and in a sense SF Mega Man can do that too with galaxy advances.

      This and the fact that SF Mega Man can exist in both the wave world and the real one, and generally fits the super hero theme more, would make him easier to implement in a story mode. (which MvCI will have.)

      I think SF Mega Man is way too perfect for this kind of game, the only thing holding him back is how underrated he is.

    5. Well put. I don't know half of what you're talking about, but at least it's a meaty justification.

      Delete
  8. Guess that answers my question from before.

    Just pretend all the excuses for why Megaman couldn't possibly be in 3 never happened it is.

    Nice to see X here.

    1. Amen to that! Now the real question is.. Who is destined to be the new megaman in term's of poor excuse on not making the cut?

      Delete
  9. Stupid Capcom making X look so weak and lame in this trailer. Can't Mega Man overall be treated WELL god damn it? Also, don't get your hopes up. Remember when people speculated Zero in MvC3 might promote an upcoming title? Same crap this time, don't get your hopes up. It's just commercialism.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yeah, I don't know what it is, but X has always been portrayed as kind of a lame duck, as if nobody wants to risk making him cooler than Zero or something.

      Delete
    2. That's because Zero was Inafune's favorite MM character.

      Why does Capcom continue doing it now that Inafune is gone? Marketing, I suppose. Sword-swinging, girl-shaped men are still very popular in Japan.

      Delete
    3. no one say that there is going to be a new title. we're just rejoicing that freakin X is here!
      Capcom was only shoving Zero everywhere because they where convinced that Zero was far more popular than X. while Zero is popular and cool, they did not realize that fan actually love X just as much !! NOW THEY DO !!
      also, sure this trailer does'nt show him in is brightest, but now think about it, they put him with iron man in the first trailer, and show us some sort os Sigma in the end. he might have some good role to play in the game.
      also, not that this is base form X, if thay had shown him breaking iron man's armor ass that would have been saying "and in ultimate armor X is strong enough to beat iron man with only is little finger" as X is canoniclly stronger with upgraded armor

      Delete
    4. On the other hand, I'd rather X's base armor grow stronger with each armor upgrade so he doesn't need to equip them all the time. So we'd see X doing stuff like double charged shots, air-dashing, Nova Striking, and Giga Crushing without any armors necessary.

      But that's just from a canon standpoint. Having him swap between different armors is flashy and cool, but then why doesn't Iron Man do that?

      Delete
    5. Are you people never satisfied ya'll want no Zero that's a given, ya'll want X to curb stomp Iron Man that's a hinted.

      You guys are so fanboy and petty you don't realize how easy it is to swap X and Zero or change either of their aesthetics, they can be nearly the same character. To the butthurt guy getting made at a country's(?) taste in character designs and I'm assuming Zero even tho Zero is nowhere to be found (insecurities tho), if sword swinging (Zero uses guns probably better than X BTW, and definitely uses rods, chain wipes etc) "Zero" types and such are girl shaped , than what does that make the shorter skinnier but otherwise exact same looking character of X, and yes Zero has hair and different armor (which is barley a difference to begin with), but he easily is seen without hair and changes armor easily. So if Zero cuts his hair and changes his armor he is what boy shape all a sudden? Or What would happen if X installed long hair, what that'd turn him into Iris (of which he shares height with)?

      I can almost guarantee that Nostagia and such will wear off of Mega Man, I know how people behave I was there when Mega Man was at its hieght and everyone ones on the side character's balls from Bass to Tron and it was hip to hate on Mega Man being everywhere and milked to death, now that he's been on a little break Mega Man is the greatest thing ever skrew Japan and Capcom and their love for other characters and such. Well I stood by Mega Man back in the day when he was considered the lame vanilla default character, and I'll stand by the side characters that helped built the things to the degree they are now.

    6. Your argument that Zero's armor is barely different from X's holds no water, just as your use of parenthetical statements doesn't hold your comment together.

      Delete
    7. Are you seriously trying to be intellectual? I got news you... You failed.

      "Zero has hair and different armor (which is barley a difference to begin with)"

      Is not to say Zero's armor is barely different than X's.

      As in if I have a twin brother and we both dressed in completely different close, at least to me that is not enough to make us stop looking like twins, especially since we would have the possibility of wearing different clothing that perhaps better reflects the cloths one and other wore if not the same exact cloths. Which is literally the case with X and Zero, in UMvC3 Capcom did nothing but give Zero's model X's armor without changing a single other thing and he looks IDENTICAL to X.

      Holds no water... Yeah another comment describing itself.

      Also thank you god of statements for enlightening the common peasant that his statements don't hold his comments together, your word is law and truth I have to abide.(sarcasm)

  10. Now that reveal couldn't have been better for MM fans.
    I'd caution everyone from thinking there will be a bunch of MM reps.
    a 2v2 model, as indicated in the trailer if that's the case, may imply a smaller character count. Especially if mutants are not included.
    Time will reveal all.

  11. People are already speculating that the boss at the end was a fusion of ultron and sigma.

    I can kinda see it.

  12. That Ultron-Sigma hybrid at the end looked pretty neat.

    But PS4 exclusive? Kiss the darkest part of my butt!

    1. I'm actually confident he'll be better portrayed in the game, if not in the next proper trailer.

      But seriously, I get it. God, just, let him fucking do a Giga Crush or double charged shots or SOMETHING COOL. Jeeeeeez.

  16. No Rockman, Tron Bonne and maybe first time Roll ? Disappointment as well.

  17. There is Sigma/Ultron fusion at the end too.

  20. Maybe Capcom surprises us for Nintendo Switch after PS4 and XBOX one ? I have PS4 and I want Nintendo Switch with the third party.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Huh. Neat. Hate the title (I know you can count beyond 3, Capcom...), but at least X looks awesome.

    Is it just me, or did that last scene at the end there look like a combination of Mr. Sinister (Marvel/X-Men) and Astaroth (Capcom/Ghosts 'n Goblins)?

    1. Probably more likely than Ultron/Sigma, but good god would the latter feel so much cooler.

  23. *sees thumbnail while watching TLoU 2 trailer*
    *clicks, not expecting to see a Mega Man in any form*
    *X is not only the first thing seen, but exchanges fire with Iron Man*

    I hope crying during Mega Man reveals in crossovers doesnt become a norm for me...

  24. I literally squealed like Gina Lash from Angela Anaconda after seeing X in this. :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sweet! Good to see X back in action.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't care what problems may arise later on, just having a playable MM incarnation (in this case X) back already makes this game better than MvC3.

  27. CAPCOM! Let X have his Ultimate Armor! Iron Man gonna payyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

    1. Agh, please. Anything but that overused dark suit.

    2. Anything as in different armor or no armor at all?

      Mega Man had his non-ingame Hyper Mega Man as a finisher in MvC1/2 so maybe X will get his Nova Strike or Giga Crush?

      Delete
    3. if they go all out, we got first armor, second, third and Max, force and ultimate. but i'm being a bit to optimistic here

      Delete
    4. Isn't it the same as the last two Ultimate Armors?

      Delete
  28. I honestly would rather have a whole movie about Megaman X in the trailer animation than a game!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awesome that X made it in. Hopefully Zero won't be in this,I'm sick of Crapcom having him steal X's thunder. Let the Mega Man get the spotlight this time. It pisses me off when Capcom and some Fans treat Zero like he's the Whole Damn Franchise!

    Anyway,Now that Capcom and Disney are buddy-buddy again,I hope this will lead to more Disney/Capcom collaberations.

    And hopefully,Kim Possible will be in this game as a guest fighter (guy can dream can't he!

    This shadw in the end seems to implie that we well get a robot/ sci-fi plot. clearly the ocasion for X to show is talent !

  33. OK everyone, there is Iron Man and Mega man X in the same video.
    We're only one step to see my dream come true: X getting Iron Man power with his variable weapon system!
