When the announcements that Sonic the Hedgehog and Solid Snake were going to be a part of Nintendo's Wii fighting adventure Super Smash Bros. Brawl, plenty of Capcom fans were hoping that Mega Man would appear alongside them as an honored guest star. It didn't happen in the end, but hackers are known for not abiding by developer design choices. Now someone who goes by the name "worldsgreatestactor" has added Mega Man X material to the game. The Central Highway stage from X's first Super NES adventure (complete with theme music) is the setting for a battle royale between a retextured Samus Aran standing in as Mega Man X and a retextured Link doubling for X's Maverick hunter partner, Zero. 3... 2... 1... GO!
Impressive stuff, but hopefully the real Mega Man (or X; I'm not too picky) will appear in the next Super Smash Bros. title. Make it happen, Capcom and Nintendo. Hackers can't fill the gap forever.
