  • Before switching to Mega Man 11, An entirely different Mega Man project was being worked on. The details will remain secret because he still intends to do it.

I'm still hoping for a new Mega Man X title with 16-Bit style graphics. I'm hoping for something like that ever since Mega Man 9 was announced. =/



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

If there is anything that we can be assured on is that Mega Man will be going anywhere for awhile. Next game is definitely X though, the new designs were used in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite.

 The team decided that striving for an extended sense of nostalgia seemed a bit off from what gamers were looking for, and decided to use new graphics to show that not only is Mega Man back, but also improved.[2][4]

I'm sure it will be the same for X as well, not to mention brand new designs for X,Zero and Axel already shown and 16bit would do them no justice.



I hope they drive the series forward, 11 was good but I want the next big leap forward for the series to be next. A new version of mega man with new characters and story.

I hope that at some point we get a Mega Man Classic game that finally ties it together with the X series. MM11 was a great game, and I hope that keep that style if they choose not to go back to sprites. If Capcom ever feels like classic MM has run its course, they need to give it that grand finale that sees the timeline debut of Zero and reveals what happened to Mega Man, Dr. Light, and Dr. Wily in the decades before the events of MMX.

+1 to this. I do want them to close out the X series though, not with X9, but X9 could start the final arc of the X series. I also want Legends 3 and maybe that is the project he was working on first? Probably not.

Inafune talked about this. 

For everybody waiting for Zero to come and tear classic era apart...let it go. Zero is never awoke in the classic age and on top of that, Mega Man classic was intended to be like Mario and Sonic where its just "What is Wiley doing this time?" forever and ever. No intended end.

Im just not sure if that's a good idea. People who are already Mega Man fans and like previous games are the ones they should appeal to. I mean how do you appeal to people who don't know much about Mega Man at this point? I think its better to stick to the tried and true than giving it a bigger budget and hope more people will jump in. 



Welcome back, Mega Man. Now get your ass out there and start shooting shit up!

We've had tried and true so much at this point, they need to try and actually grow the franchise a bit.
