Capcom nominates Armando Sionosa to handle the game's art
The manufacturer announced Mega Man All-Stars this week on livestream. As the name implies, the game features a star-studded cast -- literally every Robot Master AND Star Droid ever!
The basic gameplay tasks players with defending Dr. Light's lab from an incoming horde of Robot Masters and Star Droids; a concept deliberately inspired Hitoshi Ariga's Mega Man Megamix. To defend the lab, players must seek out and defeat different Robot Masters/Star Droids to build-up a Special Weapons loadout. Once adequately armed, they can take the final battle to Dr. Wily and - if strong enough - save the day.
Mega Man All-Stars will include four playable characters straight out of the box -- full-color mini figures based on Mega Man+Rush, Roll+Beat, Proto Man+Tango (Tango, people!) and Bass+Treble. The game's designers hint that it's possible to play as Robot Masters/Star Droids, even if they don't have an official mini-figure. We'll have to wait and see how that pans out exactly.
Much like its predecessor, Mega Man All-Stars will debut on Kickstarter. Campaign launch date and additional details are forthcoming. In the meantime, you should check out the livestream for more gameplay tidbits, close-ups of the mini figures, behind-the-scenes facts and more official art!
So that's that for now. Mega Man All-Stars sounds like a really promising idea and Jasco are hopeful fans will be receptive to it. I'm really looking forward to watching this one unfold!
More news on this front soon!
