'Mighty Gunvolt,' a cross-over with Azure Striker and Mighty No. 9 rumored

We're nearing the release of Azure Striker Gunvolt on 3DS soon, and Mighty No. 9 is quite a ways off, but developer Inti Creates may have another project up their sleeve. According to a leak from Famitsu, there is a...

The Mega Man 2.5D project moves into beta 3.0, still has co-op photo
The Mega Man 2.5D project moves into beta 3.0, still has co-op
by Chris Carter

The newest iteration of developer Peter Sjostrand's Mega Man 2.5D is out, and you can download it off the official site.

The 3.0 beta boasts new co-op and single-player stages, including Splash Woman and Quick Man. Overall it's looking pretty great, even if you completely negate the 2.5D art style -- playing a classic looking Mega Man game in full co-op is a dream.

Here's the Mega Man Legends 3 8-bit launch trailer

Just recently we found out that the Mega Man Legends 3 8-bit demake was completed, and now we have a new launch trailer to see it in action. As a reminder, you can shell out for a physical soundtrack disc as well as a copy of the game, but it'll also drop for free on August 30. Be sure and pick it up as soon as possible on that date just in case something happens with Capcom!

New Rockman Xover boss is a cheeky bird

Coming off of the cool Rosso and Blu D boss designs for Rockman Xover, Capcom has another bot on the way -- Verde R. He's a pretty indignant-looking bird, and commands the wind element. His update will hit on August 12 in the...

That Mega Man Legends 3 demake is completed

Last year, a development collective called the Dash 3 Reboot Team decided to create an 8-bit version of Mega Man Legends 3, titled The Prologue. It's finally done, and in addition to releasing the game to the public for free ...

Mega Man 5 hits Wii U, Mega Man StreetPass puzzle hits 3DS

Rehashing is not new for Capcom. Still, does it feel like, just maybe, the excitement over Keiji Inafune's two not-Mega Men has spurred Capcom to release a bunch of Mega Man stuff this month? Maybe. Mega Man 5 ...

August will have one Mega Man game release per week on Wii U

Each week in the Nintendo Download series, I can highlight whatever I want in the title -- and you can bet that I'll continue to pick Mega Man games this month! According to Capcom Unity, every week in August will see a ...

Mega Man 7 will drop on the Japanese Virtual Console next week

As Capcom previously revealed, the polarizing Mega Man 7 will arrive on the Virtual Console at some point in the near future. Japan is getting it sooner than later though, as the game is scheduled to drop on August 6. 7&...

Rockman Xover gets another cool looking boss that's wasted on this game

When people say "Mega Man is dead, I wish Capcom made more games from that franchise" it's not entirely true. Well it is, kind of, but there is also a Mega Man game out that's constantly updated -- Rockman Xover. It's a ...

Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release photo
Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release
by Chris Carter

Nintendo took a minute (well, 15 actually) to check in with Capcom in a decidedly Mega Man themed Nintendo Minute. Speaking to Brett Elston of Capcom, they chatted a bit about recent Mega Man merch, as well as the newest game to hit the Virtual Console -- Mega Man Battle Network, which has already dropped in Europe and is set to hit the US on July 31.

Man, how cool would it be if Nintendo bought Capcom and gave Mega Man the care he needs? Also, how lucrative would a Nintendo exclusive Monster Hunter franchise be over time if it owned the entire IP? It's a match made in heaven.

New Mighty No. 9 video shows off transformation powers, Call gameplay photo
New Mighty No. 9 video shows off transformation powers, Call gameplay
by Chris Carter

Developer Comcept has done a great job of keeping its fans updated on the Mighty No. 9 project -- and for some fans, overly so. Although this new video has a fair amount of recycled footage at the start and the end, the middle gives us a new look at Beck's powers, as well as some solid footage of Call.

I know some people are disappointed at its dash-heavy gameplay and score system, but keep in mind that this is a rough alpha, and the game is still a long ways away. Also, the dashing totally rocks.

Would you play Mighty [No] Legends from Inafune?

Keiji Inafune and crew have yet to deliver Mighty No. 9 (it's still a long way away), but its massive Mega Man fanbase has jumped ship, and is already wanting multiple Mighty games. Last weekend at SGC 2014, fans a...
