In need of a new desktop wallpaper? Fret not, Capcom's got your back with this very awesome high resolution piece of Mega Man Universe art. The image was released onto the company's press room recently and it was just so nice I thought I'd share it here for everyone. It's pretty big, roughly 1600x1600 dimensions. Actually, the original image was 5000x5000, but blogger refused to have something that big be published. Nevertheless, here's the 1600x1600 version:
Personally, I really like the MMU artwork. It's certainly a departure from what we're used to but it's pretty cool in its own right. I dunno about you, but "Angry" Mega Man is starting to grow on me the more and more I look at him.
Eh, no thanks. I'm just going to stick with the Mega Man 10 desktop background. Or rather, the Rockman 10 background, since it's the artwork from the Japanese boxart.ReplyDelete
O_o! I agree, Protodude.ReplyDelete
But I can't wait to get this when it comes out next year or in... bum bum buuuuummmm! 2012! I want to play as Classic MegaMan, or Morrigan. I played Cross Edge with her in it and she has the moves. :P It made me want to play her games. XD
...As interesting as Angry Mega Man is... I think I'll stick to my Legends or Blanka desktop...ReplyDelete
The art style is making more sense to me now. If Megaman and Rockman are distinct characters, what better way to keep them separate than to use the classic anime-style design for Rockman and a Western-animation-based style for Megaman? Megaman looks like he stepped out of a Cartoon Network show, probably one animated in Flash.ReplyDelete
Also, my curiosity is piqued about exactly what all the redrawn bosses will look like - I'm hoping now that this game ends up loaded with downloadable content - sure, right now we've got Megaman 2 (and probably 1) represented, so that's what they're going to show off in the trailers, but if this is successful, I'd expect a Megaman 3 character/stage pack to come out, followed by 4, and so on. Imagine playing as SheepMan through GravityMan's stage, or similar. The extra playable characters like Ryu and Arthur are a gimmick, sure, but they're pointing the way to possible further expansion. Any character, any stage, with a construction mode - like MMPU grown huge. If this is anywhere close to right, I honestly can't wait.
Waste of a wallpaper if it doesn't show even remotely 5% (if we're to believe Capcom) of the characters who will be playable. -_-ReplyDelete
I'm glad you said it, Protodude! Which is kind of shame because I can't get over the "well, I'll have to play as the REAL Rockman" thing :|ReplyDelete
Kinda can't wait for TGS just so my uncertainty will be resolved, one way or another!
Ew. Why would anyone want that?ReplyDelete
@Protodude: Maybe you could have an non-blog affiliate like RPM host it, then?ReplyDelete
