After titles getting canceled and unwanted iOS games releasing, Mega Man seems to finally be getting a game worthy of his 25th anniversary for free. Street Fighter X Mega Man will be a PC downloadable title and releases December 17th. You will be able to download this directly from Capcom's Mega Man brand page.
This will be an all new 8-bit game much like Mega Man 9 and 10. The main addition this time is instead of robot masters there are characters from the Street Fighter franchise. The two mega series team up as they both share a 25th anniversary this year.
This project started as a collaboration between Capcom and Seow Zong Hui from Singapore. Hui had a build of the game at EVO 2012 and since then has been on track to have a mass release. Along with an 8-bit soundtrack by A_Rival that blends the two series together in song. Check out the reveal trailer below to get a taste of what the game will look like.
