During Capcom's 44th general shareholder meeting, shareholders brought up inquiries regarding the Mega Man franchise. One shareholder asked about the overall future plans, while another expressed curiosity about potential ports and collections:
Q: Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection was released in April and has surpassed 1 million units in sales, contributing to existing IP utilization and user expansion. What are your plans for the Mega Man series?
A: Including Mega Man 11, the latest entry in the franchise, Mega Man is one of Capcom’s historic IPs and is loved by fans, and as such we want to take care in how we develop the series. We are considering how to approach the production of new entries in the series, which requires numerous factors, including the development of a solid concept, ideas and gameplay, etc.
Q: Tell me your plans for new ports or collections in the Mega Man series.
A: We are considering our approach to ports of past entries titles, which includes addressing technical issues.
A promising, if not cautiously optimistic response. For now, it gives us a small taste to ponder as we eagerly anticipate the future to reveal itself.
