Fans have lately been worried Capcom wouldn’t be revisiting the Mega Man franchise. Thankfully, during a recent interview, Capcom laid those fears to rest, stating Mega Man is returning to our gaming machines.
Speaking with Nintendo Power, Capcom USA senior VP Christian Svensson revealed that we’ll actually be seeing quite a bit of Mega Man in the future, not only on handhelds, but also on our major consoles.
“I can say with certainty that you’ve not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we’ll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you’re going to enjoy over the next 25 years,” said Svensson. “That said, an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details.”
The Blue Bomber turns 25 this year, with festivities kicking off in the US sometime in December. However, Capcom USA and Capcom Japan will be holding separate celebrations in honor of the beloved character’s birthday.
