Awesome news.

Hopefully they can do some interesting stuff with the gameplay without trashing the formula.

Game was obviously successful or they would not be making a sequel.

I would say such a rediculous statement borders trolling but, I'm not a mod so...

I wasn't a fan of MegaMan Legends, but MegaMan Legends 2 was pretty fantastic. They're basically the MegaMan equivalent of Zelda games. Control wise they're both dated, but not unplayable (You manipulate the camera left and right using the shoulder buttons). The Legend series has a fantastic world and visual style to it. I guess you could say there's plenty of charm.

This is the only way I want my mega man. MM9 was fully brilliant and I expect MMX I mean 10 to be as well. Anything else is style over substance. Extremely psyched!

To me it's gameplay -- this is the true reason why it's better than their 16bits counterparts.

Now use a little imagination and imagine a Megaman that has this wonderful 8bit gameplay in a wonderful 2D world looking 16bits or better, all in 2D. That would simply trounce other megamans not only in gameplay but in visuals as well.

I flipped out. :)

I love the 8 bit Megaman games, not for nostalgia reasons, but I feel like that they are the best mechanically... Megaman is small, so you can see around you well, and he feels light, agile, and powerful. In Megaman 7 and 8 and X series, I felt that Megaman (X) was big, slower, and clunkier.

Some of these reasons are why I like the NES game Kirby's Adventure over its GBA remake, Nightmare in Dreamland. The enemies and Kirby were just way too big in the remake.

wat

Mega Man X... slower... clunkier? I think there has been some confusion.

Anyways, great news all around, but I'm still holding out for the 16-bit-style MMX.

This, on the other hand, is more my speed. SO EXCITED.

In a perfect world we would have a Mega-Man title with Blaz Blu fidelity, with the fluidity of Sf3....

Sadly we live in the real world, in which the polish of the 8-bit Mega Man series is untouchable....
Best "engine" in the series since day one~!

I myself look forward to another dose of 8-bit goodness being a child old school 80's gamer @ heart....
Still the millennium man to the 10th power inside of me yearns for a 2-D game that would push the likes of the PS3 & 360....
I'd like a new 2-D Mega-Man so insane that it would have to be downported dramatically on the Wii....

I will say New Super Mario Bros. Is phenomenal, It's so awesome blending a little of this & that from SMB 1 & 3 as well as Mario 64....
It does a good job of hitting the nostalgic sweet spot while balancing in a more modern look....
I'd rather it be Hi-Def sprite based
2-D but we can't have it all....
I am very pleased with the SMB1 momentum based "physics"....
The added wall jumping adds a huge mechanic to an old tried & true formula....

Even a similar New Mega-Man would be nice....
You got the tech now make the best Mega Man ever Capcom!
The MM nes style 2-d throwbacks should continue, secondary to the mainline series....

Back to the real world this game is so cheap to make, Why bother investing money into a new MM game?

It's about time Mega-Man lived up to his name & grew up....

Personally, I feel that the larger size of X makes him feel a little slow and clunky in the X series, and as such, I actually like the X series the least of all Megaman games, but that's my personal taste.

I disagree, because I feel that the NES Zelda and Metroid aren't the best in their series and are very antiquated.

The NES Megaman games, on the other hand, hold up very well today, and I'm pretty sure many say that they were the best in the Megaman original series. I love Zelda, but seeing a Zelda go back to the NES days would almost be like someone making a new Adventure in 2600 style, at least to me.

ah, yeah, you're right. plenty of jokers on this forum think LINK'S AWAKENING is the best zelda. so, they should definitely make it look like a game boy game.
