Keiji Inafune, producer of Dead Rising 2 and the original designer of Mega Man, has confirmed that he is indeed working on Mega Man Universe, a downloadable game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
"We are thrilled to finally be able to announce Mega Man Universe," says Keiji Inafune. "This game will break the mould and challenge the conventional wisdom of what a Mega Man game can be. When fans finally get to see it, I believe they'll envision their most far-out Mega Man dreams coming true.
"Gamers can expect Mega Man Universe to bring the core experience fans want while delivering on the promise of innovation that Capcom is known for. Its official: classic gaming will never be same again."
