Street Fighter X Mega Man: How it happened
Last weekend, the folks at Capcom revealed quite an unexpected surprise in the form of Street Fighter X Mega Man, a fan-made and Capcom backed crossover that will be free to download on the Blue Bomber's 25th Anniversary (which is Monday!).
Ooh I hope Cyber-Akuma is the last boss...
Considering what's been going on with them in recent years, I've lost a lot of interest in Capcom as well, but considering that this is a fan made project that's being distributed for free by Capcom, I will check this out to show the developer appreciation of the dedication he put into this crossover. No matter what you think of the company, no one can deny that a fan doing this much for two franchises he loves is always a great thing.
It's clearly Akuma.
This pleases me. Capcom, if the world doesn't end, I will meet you at the negotiations table.
This video has got me even more interested to try it out! Hopefully I can find a controller to use soon...
Saw a jungle level in there, calling it, it's Blanka's level. =)
I've lost interest in capcom I don't care its free either I'm done with capcom.
From the little bits of gameplay I saw here, I say the developer got really, really creative with his level and boss designs. Is it really going to be here on December 17th? I seriously can't wait for this game.
To be perfectly honest, I want something that either bridges the Battle Network and Star Force series, or a game that concludes the ZX series. It's funny, because Star Force and ZXA were both anniversary games five years ago.
I guess the last boss is Akuma?
i've got a really good feeling about how this is going to turn out
Capcom should hire this guy full time or search around youtube and newgrounds to recruit fans to worko megaman games...
I'm really looking forward to this! It looks amazing! Please Capcom, please make it available for Mac as well.
I appreciate that, but I think Capcom needs to do something else as an original project. Whether it be Mega Man 11 or Mega Man X9, I think everyone wants that.
"Shut up and take my money!" "... it's free." " Never mind then."
This was actually very interesting to watch. Can't wait to play it!
To be fair, these types of anniversary celebrations usually begin on the anniversary date and then last an entire year afterward.
So now they're saying that the 25th Anniversary doesn't actually happen till AFTER the fact now, huh? Smooth.
