[Every week (until I get bored), Art Juice takes a recent videogame story and provides an unremittingly artistic slant, telling us a little something about ourselves in the process ... whether we want to know the truth or not!]
As soon as I heard that "Crap American Box Art" Mega Man was coming to Street Fighter x Tekken, I was overjoyed. It is the greatest thing a videogame company has ever done for its fans -- ever. Unfortunately, some people are always going to look a gift horse in the mouth.
Hardcore fans apparently hate the design for the character that will be in Street Fighter x Tekken, but it's really not that bad! All it needs is a little tweaking, something to bridge the gap between the old Mega Man of yesteryear and the sleek, asskicking Mega Man of today. Naturally, it's up to award-winning artist Jim Sterling to resolve the issue.
So it is that I give you -- The Mega Man. This is the definitive design for Capcom's iconic hero. Hopefully they use it!
