Capcom's 'Top Men' Are Currently Discussing Mega Man's Future

The Blue Bomber has been around for a quarter century, but will he stick around for much longer?

Mega Man isn't dead yet, despite multiple games being cancelled last year, according to Senior Vice President Christian Svennson in the latest Ask Capcom video centered around Mega Man's 25th anniversary.

Svennson said about the Blue Bomber: "I hesitate to say exactly what [is next for Mega Man], because I don't want people reading more into it than is there, let's just say there are top men thinking about and actively discussing where we're going to take the brand for the next ten years and how we're going to do it."

Mega Man first debuted on the NES in December 1987 in Japan and North America. The last Mega Man release in North America was Mega Man Zero Collection for DS in mid 2010. Since then, two new Mega Man games were announced (Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3), but both were cancelled in 2011.

Knowing Capcom, they'll release a new Mega Man game with 4 Robot Masters. If you want 8, purchase the "Robot Master" DLC pack!

Unfortunately, I think that is a possibility...

Capcom's brand new idea:

You buy these Robot Master toys and they interact with your video game via a Mega Portal.

For some reason, I suddenly have an image in my head of the Mega Man franchise being rolled out to the Capcom warehouse.  ;)

What's there to discuss? Dude is awesome, and the X series has been the best thus far!

With Wii U and the 3DS, Mega Man will get a "rebirth" and become big again. They can do so much with Mega Man its almost ridiculous.

Here is what Capcom really means when they say their "Top Men" are working on Mega Man's future.

I'll say it again:

Get Inti Creates to make MMX9 with SNES-style graphics. Each of the eight Robot Masters can be from a previous game in the series. We can have Overdrive Ostrich sharing screen real estate with Heat Dinorex and Tornado Tonion. Toss in a surprise like Dr. Wily's head is alive in a robot body and he's got Zero working for him and he's building Sigma a new body or something. This sh*t writes itself.

The headline sounds like it's either intentionally trying to be sexist or intentionally trying to be gay.
