Mega Man has been sticking with the 8-bit retro style recently, but it looks like Capcom might have something new in store for the series.
On Destructoid’s Bit Transmission Podcast, Capcom’s Seth Killian gave a little bit of a tease on where the series will be going next.
“It’s good. I don’t want to say nobody has seen it coming. Somebody may have seen it coming. But it excited me and when I heard about the project, I was like, ‘Holy crap. That’s rad.’ I actually haven’t seen anything that’s going on with the project right now but the idea was exciting. This is still kicking around as a concept. But there are exciting ideas in the Mega Man space.”
Sounds almost as rad as The Legend of Zelda (ohohoho).
I always thought the 8-bit Retro concept for Mega Man 9 was cool. But by Mega Man 10, I had pretty much lost interest since the novelty of being a current generation 8-bit title sort of wore off.
It will be nice to see the series go in another direction…or maybe finish up a certain cliff hanger.
