Nintendo dropped the bomb we've been waiting for: Mega Man is headed to the all new Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The trailer (viewable after the jump) shows the classic blue robot duking it out with Nintendo familiars. He has a huge arsenal at his disposal -- a number of weapons pulled from a variety of games. Rush and the Yellow Devil make an appearance, too.
Trailer and images after the jump. Hit it!
Images pulled from the official SSB website:
My attempt at the move list:
- Charge Shot
- Rock/Mega Upper
- Rush Coil
- Metal Blade
- Crash Bomber
- Leaf Shield
- Hard Knuckle

- Flame Sword

- Super Arm
- Flame Blast (Final Smash?)
Was your body ready?
My body was not ready for this.ReplyDelete
When i saw megaman i think my heart stopped. Seriously, i could barely breathe.ReplyDelete
mine too, it's beautiful >> resurfaces from its place of rest finally at its peak with several powers he earned during his walk. https://www.facebook.com/RockmanBrasil ..Delete
Am I the only one dissapointed that they didn't pick Star Force Mega Man?ReplyDelete
Uhh... because the majority of the gaming public won't know who the hell that is?Delete
I am glad that they didnt pick Star Force Mega Man. I prefer Megaman Classic. I hope there will be Megaman Classic new game again in the future.Delete
Star Force Mega Man is in the lowest of the low tiers of Mega Men. The only REAL option for a SSB game was Classic or X.Delete
Same here. Picking SF MegaMan (I'm a fan of him, but a big fan of Classic MegaMan) would only piss off the MM fanbase even more. Still, this is great news for us MM fans.Delete
Maybe Zero will be in it too?Delete
Let's not have Zero in it. He's made enough appearances already. How about having X team up instead because he's only been in PXZ...Delete
"Star Force Mega Man is in the lowest of the low tiers of Mega Men. The only REAL option for a SSB game was Classic or X."Delete
^Couldn't have said it better myself.
He barely even qualifies as MegaMan....
I cant be more agree with you, Megaman Clasic is the best choice and the only oneDelete
As much as I'd love to have seen Star Force Mega Man, it wouldn't be the proper choice. Classic Mega Man had to be it.Delete
Oh please, and a program qualifies? Star Force Mega Man is good in his own rights and DOES deserve to qualify as Mega Man.
OMG, it's fabulous, i was like crazy when i have seen that. I'm calm now lol, megaman is liked by Capcom....certainly ;3ReplyDelete
I know what is the console i will buy now :D
Is it the 3dsDelete
YES oh frick YES!ReplyDelete
Hopefully this will mean that Megaman gets some more recognition kinda like what Marth & Roy did for Fire Emblem & Pit did for Kid Icarus & put him back in the public spotlight!
WOW Thank-you Nintendo!
The stream's chat exploded. Oh my god.ReplyDelete
OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! YES!!! :DReplyDelete
Maybe that rumor about a franchise turning Nintendo exclusive in 2014 is MegaMan, if this news means MegaMan will get new games so be it! :)ReplyDelete
Man, that stream was LAGGY though
If MegaMan goes Nintendo exclusive again I'll immediately buy a Wii U.Delete
Oh, screw it. I'm already gonna buy a Wii U.
If I get the chance to have a Sonic the Hedgehog vs Megaman match I think I'll nerdgasm SO HARD I'll pass out...ReplyDelete
Nintendo better make his backstory that he left Capcom.ReplyDelete
Sorry, what? Capcom needs all the help they can get, and Megaman is generally loved by the population. Hell, all we really want from Capcom is another Megaman game!Delete
...or another Street Fighter. That would be nice too.
Gwoooooooooo...!! That was awesome!! I don't know what's more exciting! The fact that Megaman finally joined the battle, or the Yellow Devil being part of things as well...!!!ReplyDelete
Also! The uppercut Rock uses is called the "Rock/Mega Upper". It was originally seen in Mega/Rockman 2: The Power Fighters, but also appeared in the first two Marvel vs. Capcom games. Usually, Rock announces this attack with a simple "(Rock) Upper!" as he uses it.Delete
YES. NOW THERE HAS TO BE A NEW GAME.ReplyDelete
Am I the only one who is really disappointed at the Nintendo Direct? MM on SSBB was AWESOME, but there were barely any new game announcements...ReplyDelete
it's not about the numbers, it's abput the qualityDelete
Mega Man is dead they saidReplyDelete
Capcom doesn't care about Mega Man they said
Exactly, they like it, they like the community, lets continue to show how awesome WE ARE with MEGAMAN!Delete
But Mega Man is still dead, and Capcom still doesn't care. This is a cameo in other franchise and in other company's game, not a Mega Man gameDelete
Megaman in Smash Bros... TOP THAT SONY! BWA HA HA HA!!!!ReplyDelete
And giving him the Metal Blade weapon is just plain cheating, but I love it. They even included ol' Yellow Devil as a boss character. This is the epitome of "YES".
It's a real no-brainer and why it took so long is a total mystery.
Perhaps Nintendo should buy the franchise from Capcom, keep it the hands of responsible game developers.
LIFE MAKES SENSE AGAIN! SOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY I COULD DANCE!!!!ReplyDelete
Ahem, now gimme some BLUES! :D
Oh, and Little Mac also confirmed judging by the stage.
This is an actual dream come true. Oh my god. No other announcement ever could have topped this.ReplyDelete
All of my love.
Megaman shows up in Nintendo's fighting game before Capcom's.ReplyDelete
I never thought I'd see the day.
@10:07 AM Anon: Well, who knows, maybe it was Nintendo that asked and Capcom was all "sure, whatever".ReplyDelete
BUT NOW'S NOT THE TIME TO WORRY ABOUT THAT BECAUSE MEGAMAN IN SMASH BROS. WOOOOOOO
Definitely have to get a WiiU now (or a 3DS).
Great, Mega Man has been reduced to another cameo rather than getting his own gameReplyDelete
Maybe, but it's obviously a show-stealer of a cameo, not buried in the background like so many other things. SSB has the power to show the world who's truly important. They did with Samus, Pit, Sonic, and even Ness (Not in the US, so much). Also, "MEGA MAN" was even trending on twitter worldwide as a result of this announcement...Delete
Mere cameo or not, it's gotten him noticed again. More-so than any of the independent movements had been able to achieve in 2 years time, combined.
You forgot about Marth and Roy. Them being in Melee caused the games to start being localized here.Delete
I knew I was forgetting something important. ^__^;;Delete
HYPE FUCKING DELIVEREDReplyDelete
@ 10:39 AM AnonReplyDelete
Think about it. SF Mega Man would have made a lot more sense.
SF Mega Man is the most recent Mega Man incarnation (excluding OVER-1 because people hate him) and all games in his respective series (minus a really obscure TV game) have all been on the DS. Also, I bet you nobody (in the US and everywhere else at least) knew who the fuck Roy and Marth were until Melee was released.
Fuck NO. The SF series sold like shit. The general public -- millions of gamers who don't play Mega Man -- wouldnt even recognize him. Classic Mega Man is iconic.Delete
Nope. The only other Mega Man who would fit this would have been X.Delete
Using Fire Emblem as a shield (no pun intended) is pathetic. Fire Emblem is a known Nintendo franchise with over fifteen years of history BEFORE Melee ever happened. Whether or not you knew of it/the series was known in America is irrelevant. It's an ongoing staple of Nintendo's arsenal.
Star Force's protagonist (laughably called "Mega Man", despite no connection to even the Battle Network character, let alone the world renowned Classic incarnation) is obscure to most Mega Man fans, let alone Smash Brothers players and non-fans entirely. Being the most recent doesn't mean squat when your last release was in 2008 and your series that didn't sell has been over since then. Star Force "Mega Man" would have made so little sense it makes my face hurt. Nintendo and Capcom made the right decision, and it's freaking excellent.
Star Force is a concluded/dead series. Its last game was about 4-5 years ago, before the last Classic game to be released.Delete
It WOULD have made more sense... Had this been at least 3 years ago and they planned on creating more entries.
But as much of a Network timeline fan I am, even I must admit you'd be freaking delusional to deny that Classic's, well, classic status makes him a FAR better candidate for SSB.
Also, I have no idea why people are saying that X is as good of a candidate as Classic is. You guys are delusional too.Delete
I really think the only other viable Mega Man-related character would be the MMZ version of Zero, given that all his games were Nintendo-based and he is immensely popular.Delete
Even if classic Mega Man is the only one in, I'm really psyched. His moveset looks awesome.
This must be the best and only smart move capcom has made in how long now? Wonder what the universe will take as price for the consequences of that. Or maybe Ive died and gone to heaven where nintendo has bought the mmrights and hired Infaune!ReplyDelete
I'm honestly torn... As I'm glad to see Megaman included but I much rather have had X, Trigger, Zero, or Aile as the token cameo then classic Megaman. I suppose it's in part because all the ones I listed actually have more of a Melee move list then Classic in a sense.ReplyDelete
Classic Megaman makes the most sense because Megaman made its mark on gaming history on the famicom/nes. Volnutt appeared in TvC, Zero (as much as I love him) is spoiled, and Aile...just...NO.Delete
I could understand X as a choice because that was entry point for a lot of fans (including me). However, we wouldn't have X, Volnutt, Zero, or Aile without the original Megaman. So let's give thanks to Nintendo for doing something with Megaman while Capcom continues to milk Street Fighter to death.
Nope. My body was not ready. Totally caught me off guard. When I saw a picture celebrating this on dA, I thought it was a prank, or wishful thinking.ReplyDelete
Now I know the truth. And I am overjoyed. Thank you Capcom and Nintendo for making this happen.
And for those making a fuss about MegaMan being reduced to another cameo, may I remind you it was Pit's appearance in Brawl that prompted Kid Icarus: Uprising? Speaking of Pit, I'm glad to see he'll be returning in this game as well.
Okay, I once said to a poster here that I hate fighting games regardless. I was wrong, poster. While I am not a big fan of the fighting genre, I cannot believe I forgot about this game! No, not Smash Bros! That is THE only fighting game I like! And this is some fabulous news!! Guess who I am choosing once this game comes out! :DReplyDelete
Smash is to fighting games what bikes are to automobiles.Delete
Check out the castle in the Wily Castle stage, specifically the right side.ReplyDelete
It's even got that little L-shaped pipe that all the Wily castles have!
I hope Mecha Dragon shows up in Wily's stage to wreck s**t.ReplyDelete
@11:32 AM AnonReplyDelete
Ok, I'm pretty sure you're either a troll or you have an extreme hate of Star Force. Since you keep on hiding behind 'no sf megaman stay out of the game nobody knows you'.
Zero, Zero series Zero, Vent, Aile, Grey and Ashe would have also been good choices.
I don't give a shit when Fire Emblem was released in Japan. The point I was trying to make is that Fire Emblem only became well known in the western world after Melee, maybe you should re-read my sentence before throwing excuses like that again.
Anyway, back on topic. I'm really hoping all the Mega Man incarnations (with the exception of Volnutt/Trigger and OVER-1) appear as trophies.
For the love of whatever deity you worship, stop bringing up Fire Emblem. It has no bearing on the Mega Man franchise situation.Delete
It is true that Fire Emblem became a known series in the US partly because of its two characters in Melee. However, the characters themselves made up the top-tier in that game's scene, and they're swordsmen in a fighting game where most characters fought in rather cartoonish unconventional means.
From a franchise standpoint, they're not even comparable. Fire Emblem characters exist. Classic MM is in this game. So what? Fire Emblem was an ongoing SINGLE series in Japan, while MM right now is composed of SEVEN sub series, of which all but arguably Classic are dead/inactive now.
Would it really have mattered which MM made it in, if we already have a representative in the first place?
Being a character in SSB is not an automatic 'popularity in the West' ticket, otherwise ALL of the Nintendo franchises represented in SSB would be getting the same sort of attention as Fire Emblem. What of Game and Watch, for instance? It's not that simple at all.
Game and Watch is old(he was literally a series of portable games that happened before the Gameboy), and reserved for the eShop and Club Nintendo items in case you didn't know. And he and ROB weren't put in to revive series(ROB is literally a fancy accessory like the Wii Zapper), they were put in as tribute to the history of Nintendo.Delete
It's about time.ReplyDelete
I've always wanted to see that match up (Mario vs. Megaman). I always thought that Mega Man would be more popular than Mario if they didn't include Super Mario Brothers with the NES.
Anyhoo, love the graphics and MM's look.
Would love to see a new series with these graphics. Was never crazy about the "Chibi" look in powered up. But I could see this style working for any age.
Words fall short of capturing how happy this makes me. We were way overdue for some good news.ReplyDelete
Chalk one for Nintendo! Megaman is back to the action! In Smash Bros. Wii U! You got my respect, Nintendo and the creator os Smash Bros. You, Capcom. Yeah, YOU! Where is your surprise? Don't tell me you still keeping delay or evade us from hiding for no reason. Otherwise, you are dead to me.ReplyDelete
Now, Megaman is still alive, and I am happy. :)
This is the best thing I've seen in a while. I've pictured this trailer before and now it's reality. Day one buy.ReplyDelete
I am overjoyed!!! I boycotted all of the other Smash Bros. games because MM was never in it. But now I'm ready to wreak havoc!! Also... I wonder if Wily will be in it since some of the other characters also have a villain from their respective universes in it.ReplyDelete
SO FREAKING BEAUTIFUL.ReplyDelete
Now THIS is the sort of thing we needed. I am very glad to see Mega Man in this. And- Wait a minute, is that an Animal Crossing Boy also duking it out?ReplyDelete
But yes, I am happy with this. I'm especially happy how Inafune'ish he looks. Nintendo delivers well again.
I thrashed around and almost screamed.. What? My nephew was sleeping in the room below mine.. >.>;ReplyDelete
I CAN'T STOP SCREAMING!ReplyDelete
LITERALLY! IN REAL LIFE I'VE GOT CAPS LOCK STUCK!
CAPCOM! YOU HAVE FREAKING DELIVERED! KEEP THIS UP AND I WILL BE ABLE TO FULLY RESPECT YOU AGAIN.
His moveset has been revealed : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQD1yJinzeQReplyDelete
skip to the 3:50 mark
TOP SPIN Confirmed!
Well, every time an old character makes appareance in a Smash Bros. he got a new videogame sooner or later on nintendo (the best example is Kid Icarus) because one can see the popularity of the character thanks to this game.ReplyDelete
Let's hope Mega Man is very used in official tournament and not be one of the broken characters banned of the tournaments
Would have preferred SF MegaReplyDelete
Seriously, why does everyone want a knockoff of a knockoff of a knockoff instead of the original package?
Because there's a good number of us that enjoy that incarnation. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for BN and SF.Delete
No, you wouldn't be here if it weren't for Classic. No Classic success = no BN or SF. ;)Delete
I could not be happier with Megaman's appearance in this game. From the 3D model which imitates the 8bit look, to the sounds and attacks, it all just makes me so happy. THIS is how I always wanted him to be in the SSB games. They are doing a fantastic job thus far, and I can't wait to buy this game!ReplyDelete
I KNEW IT.ReplyDelete
It'd be nice if there were skins of the different series, but that'd be too complicated.
Oh god !!! Please help me and the fan, don't let CAPCOM cancel this one !!! We want it and we want it bad !!!!ReplyDelete
Relax, it's out of Capcom's hands. This is a NINTENDO game, not Capcom game.Delete
I'm disappointed no one mentioned Roll. She can bring her broom or have her own buster!ReplyDelete
Megaman is not 100% nintendo, so, as Sonic, there will be only 1 character for megaman, and it's enough.Delete
I would prefer Protoman (for team) but anyways, i dont care.
I thought my body was ready. I could not have been more wrong.ReplyDelete
He's just how I wanted him to be too. It's perfect!
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. I'd love a new Mega Man game with that graphical style!
I gotta say... This was the one time where I could honestly say that I was not looking forward to the next Super Smash Bros. title. As I was watching this game through the Nintendo Direct livesteam yesterday, I wasn't the least bit impressed until Mega Man showed up. Seeing him pop up was definitely a pleasant surprise I wasn't expecting. Mega Man was long overdue for something like this, seeing how he's been continuously cheated out of playable roles in other fighting games.ReplyDelete
Wow, Megaman looks as though he was pulled straight from D-arts, with Mega/Gigamix elements for good measure. This is probably the ultimate representation of Classic Megaman ever! And, he's been long overdue for a game, not a full-fledged Megaman game, but a game nonetheless.ReplyDelete
This is literally the best thing to happen to the Megaman franchise in years!ReplyDelete
I'm really hoping this feature and inclusion in Smash Bros, and Nintento's support and marketing, will help revive and revitalize the entire franchise as a whole. I'm hoping to see some X and Zero in the near future, too.
Seeing and reading everyone's reactions to all this has also been very fun and exciting. :)
The trailer is one of the most badass things Ive ever seen. Especially the part where MM pulls out the metal blades and Mario and Link go "OH SHI-!"ReplyDelete
..I actually didn't breathe for the entire duration of the trailer O_OReplyDelete
..This gave me a reason to buy a Wii U AND a 3DS!
..Fight, Mega Man! For everlasting peace!
