PAX East is upon us and it is the time for gamers everywhere to rejoice (so long as they're in the North-East area). one of the most exciting things about PAX is that once in a while, software companies will use the opportunity to announce new titles, and that's just what we've got today. ...Sort of.
At the Capcom panel at PAX East, Mega Man fans had a lot to be happy about. Community manager Brett Elston announced a special light-up Mega Man figure to go along with the rest of the franchise's 25th anniversary celebrations, and also confirmed that Mega Man 4 is coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop on April 25th, while Mega Man 5 is coming on May 16th. The most exciting news, however, is that Elston also announced that Capcom is developing a new Mega Man game, but they are not ready to reveal any details.
Quickly afterwards, however, the full corporation stepped in and clarified that the company is having "ongoing discussions about Mega Man," but that there is nothing they are ready to announce. Did Elston slip up on his word choice, or did he reveal a new title before he should have? Not too long ago, Christian Svensson revealed that the company was discussing the future of the Mega Man series, and it looks like they've settled more firmly on a solid direction to take it. Are you excited to see what Capcom has in store for us?
