So I finally got some time in with Mega Man Universe, and so far, my feelings are mixed. I was initially put of by the game's visuals, but seeing them up close changed that. Other than a few unispired animations, the game is more or less on par the PSP title Mega Man Powered Up, except in HD, and without the super-chibi art direction. New characters like Bad Box Art Mega Man and Metto Man (both seen in this 12 minutes of footage) are surprisingly charming when seen up close. Bad Box Art Mega Man's huge lavender lips are hilarious.
Sadly, the only issues I had with the game came from the controls. There is some question of the game's collision detection, which Tim will be telling you about seen. The jump button also seemed to suffer from some lag, which is something that Capcom can easily fine tune before release. It took a little getting used to, but once my instincts adjusted to the slight delay before every jump, I managed to clear the game's demo on Easy. On Hard, not so much.
Anyway, enough out of me. Check out the interview and tell me what you think.
