Even for an avid Mega Man nut like myself, this avalanche of goodies borders on excessive. Not that I won't get my hands on each item eventually, but Capcom isn't giving me a break! You know what's missing from the celebration, though?
A new game.
I know that Rockman Xover is coming soon, but even if -- and that's a huge "if" -- it winds up not being complete garbage, I can't picture it making any waves in the gaming community. And with Capcom's Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson telling us to "keep expectations in check" regarding a new game announcement, the outlook doesn't look rosy.
I've been thinking about this over the past few months, and I'm no longer sure I even want Capcom to announce a new Mega Man game. The company hasn't exactly done much to inspire confidence in any of its output outside of maybe Monster Hunter. Whether it's on-disc DLC in Street Fighter X Tekken, an update to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 not even a full year after the original's release, the negative critical reception of Resident Evil 6, the failure to properly sell fans on what's shaping to be a decent game in DmC, or the continued insistence that Lost Planet is anything better than a middle-of-the-road series, Capcom seems to have lost all direction.
When the most exciting product in a company's lineup is an HD remaster of a pair of niche fighting games, what kind of message does that send?
