Keiji Inafune sees it as a possibility.
In a recent interview with Planet Mega Man, Capcom's Keiji Inafune discussed what's new for the blue bomber. Eventually, the subject of the franchise on next-gen consoles came up:
Sean: That's really great. And, one really quick last generic question, are you considering any Rockman titles
for the Nintendo Wii or PlayStation 3?
Keiji Inafune: PlayStation 3, probably the target audience that's going to purchase the PlayStation 3, uh, it's
going to be people with a lot more money, and maybe it would not be the most suitable, uh, platform for the
Mega Man series.
Sean: I agree.
Keiji Inafune: However, the Wii definitely has some potential, and it's maybe one where our target audience
could embrace the Mega Man series. So while we haven't planned anything specific now at this time, I think
probably that the potential is the highest on that piece of hardware.
While nothing was confirmed, the positive response by the series' head honcho can only mean good things in the future. Read the interview in its entirety here.
