Capcom blew the lid off of two major Mega Man Universe gameplay features tonight: character customization and stage creation. Guess they couldn't wait for TGS next week, eh? Screens and details below:
Character Customization: In Mega Man Universe, you can create your own original Mega Man by assembling parts you like. Also, your abilities will change depending on the parts you choose. There are a wide variety of custom parts that allow you to create your original Mega Man!
Stage Creation: Mega Man Universe not only allows you to customize your original Mega Man, but you can also create your own unique stages! You can play your own custom stages or play stages created by others. Aside from Mega Man themed stages, there are a variety of custom stage parts that will be revealed soon.
Mega Man Universe is starting to sound more and more like a spiritual successor to Mega Man Powered Up, at least in terms of stage customization. The game looks to offer a fairly similar experience with a more robust stage editor that not only sports a bigger play field but also notably ditched the limit gauge that plagued MMPU's stage editor. That's a major plus in my book.
Look forward to more MMU details dropping next week during TGS beginning September 16th.
