Should there be a new franchise for box art Mega Man?
So like a lot of you I have my own reactions and opinions on the new Mega Man. I think for me over all I'm more confused and intrigued than enraged.
Let’s look back at Mega Man... If you look at the series as a whole it gave birth to not one franchise but several, much like Mario and Sonic perhaps. This got me thinking... maybe Mega Man is due for a new incarnation...
Now some people might be kind of annoyed with that thought... Many feel that the blue bomber they know will never return. This is a silly thought. We've been through X, Legends, Battle network, Zero, and probably some franchise I forgot and you know what? We still had some classic Mega Man games between all those. Mega Man has had many different shapes and sizes.
Any ways this got me thinking. If this actually was going to be the next version of Mega Man would it really is that bad? What would it be like?
From what I know, I'd go with it being mostly 2D beat em up. It would have elements though of the classic Mega Man games and maybe Legends. It would have a choice of you starting with the choice of 8 missions and gaining the bosses powers.
It would have more combat in it than platforming, but there might be some secret areas you can find so it's in totally linear. Also I'd have the regular enemies be weaker to certain attacks in addition to the robot masters. The paper-rock-scissors strategy will be a crucial part of the game. I would also maybe put in some shops to buy additional items like a certain red dog...
So yeah that's all I have to say on it for now. I'm hoping that Capcom will at least give us some sort of Mega Man game this year, but I have a feeling he's on hiatus.
Hmmm....if done right, this could actually make a good game.
honestly if legends 3 was a prequel of how he became megaman and it was an open world rpg with a rocksteady style it would probably be the best megaman ever. IMO i think it would give it a chance of catching up to the level of maturity that megamans original audience is now at and that would be fantastic.
if they made a small side MM game for XBLA/PSN with BBA Mega Man and a simple yet humorous(though not over the top)story I'd play it.
Capcom promised that it would be the sales of the prototype game, that would decide if the final game was made. The whole idea that "fans did not contribut enough" was a fake excuse Capcom of Europe gave instead. There were plenty of fans contributing to the game, plent of fans who bought a 3DS just for the game, and plenty of fans like me who were going to show their support by BUYING the prototype game in the Nintendo eShope. No matter what, Capcom went back on their promise.
i say maybe, if they wanna do something like this start small and contained, like an XBLA game or something
There's already a franchise for it. It's called Mega Man.
don't put your hopes so high...
look at what they've done to megaman universe that was going to be a really great game and megaman legends 3
why would they do a game with an non attractive character on the cover that let's you play it...
"Yeah" but I hope someone else gets the franchise and revive it.
"Official Megaman is dead"
Even though official Mega Man is "dead" but going with box art Mega Man I can see it if they took the character a little more seriously and more back story but to be really honest Capcom give the Mega Man franchise to someone else.
Well sadly not enough contributed, but in the fans defense it was for a new system and there are many reasons why that didn't have intrest in contributing to a 3ds game. Also I don't think the whole "make a game" campaign was distributed well.
and there is no way you could possibly beat him
Megaman Legends 3.
I did not ask for much from Capcom; they even told everyone they were making the game. Is a game they said they were going to make, and even asked fans to contribute to, really too much to ask?
Not a bad idea but it wouldn't sell
And this is how megaman dies mindless followers of capcom eating up garbage like this.
Shitting on Megaman fans, I fucking love it.
only if the final boss is 8 bit Megaman
Ok so my idea of it being a joke and appear the real Mega Man when released wasn't correct. However it's a joke besides he didn't wanted regular Mega Man in it anyway cause he's "overused"
Bad box art is not to be taken seriously. It's just a joke character. Having him in SFxT is basically enough. I think the joke's run its course. Having a whole game based around that character would be overkill.
it would b a nice thought but if they release this before an actual megaman game then that would just completely obliterate the entire megaman fan base, but the trolls would applaud capcom for it
