Bad Box Art Mega Man Enters the Ring

Bad Box Art Mega Man Enters the Ring

by Steve Napierski to Videos

I kid you not, the bad box art version of Mega Man from the original Mega Man game is going to be an exclusive playable character in the Sony (ie. Playstation 3 and PS Vita) versions of Street Fighter X Tekken. Can you say horribly awesome? Oh, yeah… There’s some “other” exclusive characters too, but probably no one you’ve ever actually heard of…

    It’s slowly becoming Capcom X Namco…

    But I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t look awesome.

    the difference between Mega Man and Rockman is only in the belly

      Not just that, Rock was initially designed as a kid. An adult looking Mega Man is just wrong somehow. He was initially raised like Dr. Lights kid after all, replace the cute kid robot with a fat man and that suddenly becomes really creepy. (but it probably validates a few fanfics) Also, there isn’t usually any yellow in Mega Man’s outfit.

        Like he said, it’s not the usual Mega Man, it’s the one from the box art of the original NES game. I own one, and it’s pretty accurate. He is an older guy with a laser pistol instead of a childish robot with a gun arm. Funny how that’s the version they decided to use, but it looks hilarious.

          Ono had discussed with Inafune about using him before Inafune left. That was the result of the conversation, which was when Universe had yet to be cancelled.

    That, is not, how you use, a comma.

      Unless, of course, you are William, Shatner.

    At least putting the MAN in Mega Man is understandable… why is Pac-Man riding a headless version of Gigantor? THAT is the truly bizarre entry here.
