The PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken gain two more exclusive characters today - both Namco and Capcom lend their mascots to the battle, but in ways you might not expect... Yes, Pac-Man and Mega Man are indeed tossing their heads/helmets in the ring. These two join Cole (from inFamous) and the Kuro/Toro cats for a total of five Sony-exclusive characters on that platform. However, both 'Men arrive in altered forms, making their appearances in SFxT totally unique to this game.

If you're like me, you may be wondering, "w... why that version of Mega Man?" Well, in the spirit of crossover fun, the dev team wanted both Capcom and Namco's mascots to join the fray in a slightly silly, goofy way. Pac-Man riding Mokujin is about as weird as it can get, so the best equivalent for Mega Man would have to be the so-bad-it's-good-but-still-kinda-bad box art from Mega Man 1 in the US.

Make no mistake though, classic Blue Bomber Mega Man still has a future, and we have Top Men (not Top Man) on the case. December also marks the 25th anniversary of Mega Man, and we'll have more news in the future about our plans for the milestone.

You know, I hear that this version of BBAMM is actually blatantly insulting.

Even if he's not, they'd better goddamned prove that classic MM's future will be a good one. And enough with that [tornado fang]ing "top men" joke.

/brain has locked up from anger, sorry

I think my favorite thing to come out of this is evil Pandora Pac-man. Seriously, just look at those glowy purple eyes of doom.

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

I thought I saw a tweet that said this had been planned since 2010. It'd probably be more well received and laughable if not for the cancellations/everything that happened last year.

Haha, I did love this one tweet though...

BBAMM is like an amalgamation of the disappointment that is MMU's/MML3's cancellations & MM's absence from MvC3...

Pretty much. I want to love it and just find it hilarious, and I understand that this is pretty much just bad timing too, but god damn it it's timing certainly couldn't be worse.

I feel like this is hilarious and, even with all of the [parasitic bomb] going on with Capcom and their handling of the franchise, I appreciate this for a moment of humor and nod to the fan base. At the same time, hell is going to be razed everywhere now due to the timing.

Now then, I can has X in Marvel? That's more important right now. XD

Blues gets in as a classic rep, X reps X series, Zero gets retconned into his MMZ design and Bass.EXE hops on the train just because. Deal?

That's kinda silly.
...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.

Where is this drawing you say?


Now to my opinion on BBA Mega Man...

The Bad Box Art Mega Man? Well I never played the original Classic Mega Man (save the Powered Up version, the Mega Man ZX Advent mini-game, Mega Man 9 and 10) but I do want play the old versions. However even without playing the old Mega Man series I remember this Mega Man truly.

I'll admit BBA Mega Man, "This is my destiny" cracked me up, and I like his fighting style. True I wanted Mega Man X to appear in a fighting game, he is LONG overdue as Zero has appeared four times in a fighting game (twice as X series Zero and twice as Zero series Zero). Because of BBA Mega Man I might get this game now! XD

I'm mad that Capcom said Mega Man wouldn't work as a "fighting character" like for UMvC3, as I voted for Mega Man X to be in and he was first place and they lied he wasn't on the top choices, and now they added this guy in here (but given one of the commenters said, it seem Inufane Keiji discussed letting them have *this* Mega Man in a fighting game before he left) but I'm happy a Mega Man character is in a fighting game. Maybe they'll re-consider for the future of having other Mega Man characters appearing in fighting game and FINALLY move on with the X series and its conclusion to the Zero series.

It's pull and tag with Capcom here, but well-played... if they didn't cancel a certain highly anticipated Mega Man game of the year.

Its because Capcom has shitty timing, or really does want to troll its fans.

In fact, im convinced thats exactly what's happening here. There is no other explanation for that bio. They cant possibly be that dense.
