With this year marking the 25th Anniversary of the blue bomber, with nary a mention of a new or bundled title so far to celebrate (aside from the so-far dismally received iOS game Mega Man Xover), many Mega Man fans feared the notoriously difficult platform shooter wouldn’t make it to 26. However, speaking in the upcoming November issue of Nintendo Power, Capcom US Senior Vice President Christian Svensson dispelled such anxieties with the confirmation of a new game in the works.
Svensson explained, “I can say with certainty that you’ve not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we’ll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you’re going to enjoy over the next 25 years. That said, an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details.”
Mega Man’s 25th anniversary is this year, with Capcom US and Capcom Japan set to celebrate in their own separate, yet to be determined, ways.
