Two things.

First, why is this in the Nintendo section?

Second, it's complete nonsense. There are many, many other large franchises that don't have this problem. It's just an excuse for the increasingly poor management at Capcom.

I was looking for a place to put this and had a hassle making up my mind and then i remembered there was a Mega Man legends thread in the Nintendo section. and that was the last part of this franchise that was dropped so it seemed fitting it should be there.

So I thought I'd drop this there. And then it became hard to find in search even though there was a thread of that, I saw some time back. But I hate how it takes so lon
g to find some thing like that when you look it up and it's not easy to find any more all of a sudden. So I just put it here. other wise I'd be in search for hour's / most of the night. and then 2 days would have past before I posted this and it'll be moot.



On the topic of this franchise I agree with you.

I think there are better companies than Nintendo to handle Mega Man, but Nintendo would certainly be preferable to Capcom at this point.

By his logic Mario should've been a dead franchise long ago.

They just need a couple really good games and a good univers. I'd like to see a 3D world and see the character evolve some. Hopefully they'll do him justice in that 10 year plan.

Mega Man X was probably the best transition to new hardware I've seen regarding this series. Hell, he could easily be rebooted into a third person actioner/platformer if they wanted.

I'd murder for a Mega Man X game infused with Platinum Games' Vanquish.

If someone were going to make a new Mega Man X game, I would want it developed by Way Forward on the Ubiart engine with the soundtrack by Simon Viklund or Souleye.

Or just let these guys do it.

Rockman Online Most Likely Cancelled

Capcom needs to hurry up and greenlight some more Mega Man games. They're running out of things to cancel.

Capcom is too focused on being dark and edgy right now.

Why exactly can't Mega Man be dark and edgy? Mega Man Zero pulled it off.

Why does Mega Man need to be grimdark? Not that I'm totally against that, necesarily. Mega Man X was darker and edgier than OG Mega Man.

The way they treat Mega Man, I'm really surprised they celebrate his 25th Anniversary at all.

Rockman X Over? The irony is overwhelming. You really can't tell it means crossover right off the bat. Pretty crappy marketing in my opinion.

I don't think Megaman went wrong. Sonic went wrong. Megaman is still enjoyable. I really liked MM 9 &10, and the DS Megaman (XZ or something like that). I think the problem is Capcom. Their ridiculous DLC money grab bogged 10 down in mini DLC's that didn't add much. Plus Capcom either won't listen to fans demands for a new Legends, or MM X style console game, or views the property so poorly they don't care to release MM outside of fighting game cameos. Sonic went wrong long ago, and never bounced back. Megaman rarely even gets a title on consoles to even have a chance to go wrong (this gen, as there were atleast a handful of games last gen.

Ugh...please no. I already have missed out on too many Zelda's because Nintendo's consoles haven't been appealing to me since Gamecube (which again...I mainly purchased for Windwaker, lol). I don't want to miss out on Megaman too. I do think Nintendo would handle it better than Capcom though, as anything would be an improvement over the current limbo MM is in. I think we'd also see as many MM minigames, and sports/olympics cameos as serious MM titles if Nintendo owned the franchise.
