Capcom knows that it has been almost 15 years and less games than average about Mega Man and the Japanese gaming veterans seem to be tuning up details to make the next decade a little different from our favorite cyborg.
This week, it was Capcom Shareholders day and pretty much an open forum where investors can ask easy and difficult questions.
One of the highlights, as per VGC, is that “what is next for Mega Man?” after the recent Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection reached a million of copies sold and Capcom responded:
“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.
We are considering our approach to ports of past entries titles, which includes addressing technical issues.”
Evidently, a game with multiple dynamics as a Mega Man game is not an easy feat and I think is fair that Mega Man is brought to the attention, specially in days that Capcom pretty much gets justified with every compilation and remakes, maintaining a fresh focus on existing IPs including Mega Man.
