No Plans For Mega Man Universe Co-Op; GB MM On 3DS Virtual Console?

Couple interesting tidbits of note coming from the pre-Comic Con Capcom event in Brooklyn, New York today. The first concerns the possibility of cooperative multiplayer in Mega Man Universe. This coming from a tweet from Rockman Perfect Memories' Protoman Blues, on the scene at today's Q&A panel:

"So far, MMU has no plans for co-op as of yet. This could change."

When asked for more details, PB had this to say:
"My friend Lou asked if there was any co-op planned and they told us "not at this time, but it's something that can be brought up" so it doesn't look like they were planning it."

With an undetermined 2011 release, there's still a bit of development time should Capcom decide to implement multiplayer. I'm sure if there's enough demand, by both the fans and the press, they'll consider it.

Also, during the panel, PB inquired about the likelihood of the Game Boy Mega Man games (Rockman World) being released for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console:

"I did ask if there was any chance they'd put the Mega Man World GB games as downloadable games for the 3DS's DSiWare thingy, and he told me while he doesn't know any plans, he can't think of a reason why Capcom wouldn't put them on there. LoL, a SHRED of hope at least."

A side-scrolling multiplayer Mega Man game. GB Mega Man on 3DS Virtual Console. Yay or nay?

  1. It'd be great to be able to play mm5 for under a 150 dollars * i only buy mega mans cib :/

  2. Considering how disappointed I was by Mega Man Mania's cancellation, I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing the five Game Boy titles make their way to the 3DS' Virtual Console. I'd buy them without the slightest hesitation.

  3. I want this badly. I was so said when MegaMan Mania never got released. =(

  4. Multiplayer for MMU would guarantee my buy for Capcom.

    When I first saw the gameplay trailers, I thought it would be pretty good if you could play it with your buddies. But if that's not the case then I'm afraid I'm not very convinced to buy this game just like that.

  5. Eh, Rockman World 4 and 5 were in my opinion the only good titles of the gameboy series. The other three were alright, but not really something I would want to purchase.

    And MMU not having co-op seems wasted to me. And by the sounds of it, they probably won't really consider it.

  6. Please stop bring old library and make a new one or remake of rockman world with an additions to 3DS would be great. No more bring old library for it is really a waste of time !

  7. @Shayne - lol, but if you bought this, it wouldn't be CIB, heck, it wouldn't even be cart, it'd be DLC.

  8. I'd buy it ... if it was canon.

  9. I never played all the way through those GB games. I wouldn't mind trying them again.

  10. GB MegaMan games coming to the 3DS in a Virtual Console?! Awesome.

    Something tells me the 3DS is gonna be the next Wii since the Wii is so popular. :D

    Once it comes out next year, I'm gonna buy me a 3DS!

    And MML3 is coming out for the 3DS. As for the guys who think the 3DS is gonna suck, shut your traps all of ya! > : 3
