Capcom's Mega Man is now twenty years old which means it's time for all the gaming magazines and websites and blogs to gush the blue bomber love. Before I get around to blubbering, however, I find myself blindsided by the pure concentrated awesome that is Capcom's abandoned all-star Mega Man fighting game. Word on the street is that there was an idea for a brawler featuring each of Mega Man's many incarnations.
"What I found interesting is that Horinouchi had planned to create a game for the 20th Anniversary of Mega Man where all of the iterations of Mega Man could fight each other. Sounds almost like a Street Fighter or Marvel Vs Capcom type game. Unfortunately there wasn't enough man power to make the game a reality. Horinouchi concluded that he'd like to give that type of game another shot if given the chance."
I hope that idea will come back around some day, and hopefully when it does it will include a sizable chunk of robot masters as playable characters. Haven't you always wanted to know who would win in a battle between Heat Man and Flame Mammoth? How about Blast Hornet versus Ring Man? Hell, what about Sigma versus Toad Man? Piqued your curiosity with that last one, didn't I?
