Mega Man Universe Explained
Written Saturday, September 04, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Capcom has decided to clear up some of the confusion surrounding the first trailer for Mega Man Universe by releasing four gameplay videos showing some of the game's many characters doing their thing.
It looks as though the Blue Bomber won't be straying too far from his 2D platforming roots though and it should still be as hard as nails, but Mega Man Universe now has a new art style, which is a little bit of a departure from the old 8-bit Mega Man that we all know and love.
Each of the videos begin with the same introduction from Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune and has the same "Play as Ryu! [No way!]" followed by Inafune's exuberant air-punching "Your World! Megafied!" sign off, so don't worry, we haven't gone mental and published four duplicate videos. The middle bits are all (sort of) different.
Mega Man Universe has yet to be given a release window, but we'd expect to see Mr. Cannon Arm and his posse on the XBLA some time in 2011. Take a look at the first screens in the gallery too.
