Capcom official revealed Mega Man Universe today over at Capcom Unity. Slated to release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, the game is said to revolutionize the classic formula in new and creative ways. Keiji Inafune, directly involved in the project, had this to say:
“We are thrilled to finally be able to announce Mega Man Universe. This game will break the mold and challenge the conventional wisdom of what a Mega Man game can be. When fans finally get to see it, I believe they’ll envision their most far-out Mega Man dreams coming true.”
Not much else is know about the game at this point, but the above trailer does drops some cryptic hints that MMU might act as a sort of crossover with other Capcom franchises, namely Street Fighter and Ghosts 'n Goblins. The tagline, "Your world. Megafied", also seems to suggest that the game will support user created content and customization.
More details for the game are said to come from Comic-Con next week. The show will also play host to some cool MMU merchandise such as a foam buster, and a cosplay contest. More details on that here. Naturally, I'll be keeping you up to date with the news as it comes in.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
