To be honest I think if Capcom is going to make another Megaman game they really need to take their time to develop it.  I wish deadlines didn't exist.

Maybe it's as simple as Mega Man not making that much money anymore. I mean, if Capcom has the choice between spending their resources on a new MM or an "updated" SF4 with a few extra characters that will probably be a million seller, it's not too hard to understand what will happen.

That's why I really thought the new 8-bit games were doing fine. Oh well.

I still have a tiny hope that they'll announce a new game near the 25th Anniversary, though. Even if it's something early in development.

But the thing is they allowed SF 4 to happen, despite SF being in the same boat. They pressured Ono to make something more profitable. What happened when SF4 finally hit the shelves? an explosion of sales.

Also, Capcom had stated that the prototype sales would determine the greenlight. So they could have been far more smart with this, since they essentially wasted money on the development and fan interaction, and didnt even bother collecting on the 2$ price tag. They easily could have released the prototype, collected some dough from it's cost, and then cancelled the project, citing a lack of sales. Instead, they just cut it off without even delivering the promised sales determining product.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

Not to mention, there doesn't seem to have been an MM advert OF ANY KIND after ZX (unless magazine previews count). Capcom can't really whine about MM's low sales when they won't properly advertise the games.

Let's see, Capcom was whining on how MMZXA didn't sell well in Japan and decided there would be no sequel, even though MMZXA sold decently well in the West.

And if you need a citation: http://www.rockmancorner.com/2011/07/mega-man-zx-celebrates-5th-anniversary.html

Kopaka: "That leaves you and I, Tahu Nuva."
Tahu: "No. That leaves only me."

Always, particularly for newer series like ZX or Star Force. I rarely ever saw Commercials or any ads outside of in VG magazines.

older MM games, MM1-8, X1-6 at least had Japanese commercials. the rest seemed more rare as far as commercials go. And forget the US- I dont think Mega Man's ever had individual game commercials here. Only for X collection and for the 15th anniversary I think?

It seemed appropriate.

I wouldn't say Rockman is dead, but he's in a coma, at least until management changes.

That grainy screen on the bottom right has got me curious. There seem to be several OVER models fighting against a big something on the other side of the screen. Squid Adler?

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Good eye! Now I see it.

You know, if the music, sound FX, and animation are spot on for this mobile RPG, I might take it as a nice throwback title instead of a blatantly cheap ripoff.

I think I'll just keep calling him "Luka". "Akiyo Haruka"'s not a bad name, either--in fact, something tells me that a lot of people are gonna stick with their fanon names.

Also, if Capcom wants me to believe that this is as involved a crossover as they're making it out to be, they'll have to show me more than just the X elements.

I like to think that "OVER-1" basically means "the first OVER unit," since Rockman OVER is supposed to be a mass-produced model of Battle Android.  That just kind of begs the question, "What does 'OVER' stand for?"  "Omnipresent Variable Equipment Robot?"  *shrug*  We'll see at some point, I imagine, what's to come of our friend in the Squall Leonhart-esque jacket.

It wasn't a joke. I was asking/stating that such a joke was unnecessary.

seeing this just makes it more of a shame that the interesting design is being wasted on this. Instead of... i dunno... an X Armor. Or something.

I don't even think WAM-X looks good as even an X armor.

I just find the design intriguing. I just wish they'd use it for something better.

Now that I see his full design he looks like X and Axl's love child with elements of Megaman.EXE and Starforce Megaman.  Too bad he's inheriting Axl's fan hate.
