Mega Man is a very popular character and if you are a 90s kid then this will be very nostalgic for yours. The devs working on the new Mega Man game provided some insights regarding what the game is going to be like and according to them, they were given a lot of freedom from Capcom and players will get to see familiar faces, but not as they would expect. Man of Action’s Joe Kelly touched on the matter and the following is what he had to say in this regard:
Capcom encouraged us to explore new ways to tell Mega Man’s story, and we did while keeping certain touchstones from the last 30 years intact. Mega Man is a young hero, just learning the ropes. He’s got a family. He fights Robot Masters … to tell you more would spoil it! We promise that there will be familiar faces, though some of them will appear in very unexpected ways.
The next title in the franchise is aimed at players both old and new and while there is a roadmap that devs have in mind they did not talk about it much. We do know that there will be older characters in the game and that is something that we are looking forward to. The devs further went on to mention the following:
There are many long term plans for Mega Man and Co. Can’t tell you what, but again there will be recognizable characters in the future that should thrill old and new fans.
The game is making a comeback but it seems that the devs believe that the character did not go anywhere. The devs mentioned that they want the fans to be as passionate about the game as they themselves are. The following is what they had to say in this regard:
Frankly, Mega Man never “left”, hence he doesn’t need a comeback. We’re pumped to share Mega Man: Fully Charged with the world, and think that the audience will be as passionate about Mega Man as we are, whether they have been there from the beginning or are discovering him for the first time.
