Capcom is finally starting to show its dedication to Mega Man. Next year’s Mega Man 11 certainly helps, and the company also intends to re-release all of the Mega Man X games across various platforms in 2018.
Mega Man 11 fills the role of resurrecting the series that started it all. However, there are other parts of Mega Man that have long been dormant, including Mega Man Legends and Mega Man Battle Network.
Could Capcom eventually return to both of those series? The developer isn’t ruling it out, at least. Mega Man 11 director Koji Oda told Game Informer that Capcom is aware that fans want to see new Mega Man Legends and Mega Man Battle Network games.
“I’m one of those people who thinks that actions speak louder than words. I could say all kinds of things, but at the end of the day, I’d like fans to see that we’re taking it seriously by starting to resurrect the brand in the way that we are and to continue to prove ourselves moving forward. I love reading survey data. It’s a great pastime, and I’m well aware that there is a voice out there that wants something new for games like Mega Man Legends and Battle Network.”
Mega Man Legends in particular has been on an extremely long break. Mega Man Legends 3 was supposed to happen on 3DS, but Capcom eventually cancelled the project. That one still stings.
