Responsible for some of the finest 2D games in recent years, WayForward Technologies seem like a perfect fit for Mega Man. But is this dream collaboration within the realm of possibility? Vice-president of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Christian Svensson, stepped in to field the inquiry:
"I'm also a WF fan and I'm familiar with their work. I'll never say never but there'd be a million approvals before a MM title could ever be produced in the West."
It would certainly be an interesting change of pace to see a Mega Man project outsourced to the West. And, really, there's no better candidate than WayForward. The developer has an immense respect for the conventions of traditional 2D platformers, going so far as to incorporate a smidgen of Mega Man elements in a number of their titles. Bloodrayne: Betrayal, specifically, pools inspiration from Mega Man X.
For now, though, don't get your hopes up. Still, it's fun to image what WayForward could do with the property.
A penny for your thoughts?
