The Daily Hotness: Mega Man, did you lose weight?

IGN revealed a trailer for the upcoming Mega Man Universe, featuring an extremely lanky Mega Man pew-pewing his way through levels composed of Mega Man 2 assets. Then 1UP and GameSpot dropped their own trailers, starring a more normal-proportioned Rockman and the US box art mistake Mega Man respectively. All exciting stuff. When can I give you my money, Capcom?

Today’s recaps cover Wednesday as well as Thursday. The newest Bit Transmission episode is finally available, DtoidAustin had a killer NARP, and King Dedede is also made out of string.

Destructoid Originals:
