Megaman X9(Though I personally believe a reboot would have been the best decision, given the messy story of the X franchise), here we come!



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I also would be in favor of reboot reimagining combo. They tried it with Maverick Hunter X, but it was on the PSP. Good to see Mega Man 11 have solid performance(could be better though especially in regards to numbers indies pull)



That's not amazing. Granted these games aren't expensive to produce but... that's worst than EA's NHL series, and there's no way that series has more appeal than Mega Man.

Uhhhh... of all the series that might make a valid comparison, how'd you land on NHL?  



Good numbers, Megaman 11 doesn't look like an expensive game, not even for a 2D platformer.

One of the staples of my childhood video game experience.



Given that the production costs of those titles have to be quite low by today's standards, that amount of sales has to be quite profitable for Capcom. Hopefully this means more Mega Man games in the future, preferably more 2D platformers, like a Mega Man 12 or Mega Man X9, because IMO that's what Mega Man was always meant to be.

Considering the budget of those games(must have been quite low for the price they have asked), and how long they have been absent, those sales are great.

 

And honestly, I think at the very least MM 11 will have good legs.So 1 million is all but garanteed, and 1.5 million is not farfetched.

You could be right. Maybe I just have too high expectations.
