Mega Man 2.5D is a fan-made game eight years in the making

Fans do what Capcom won't.

With Capcom seemingly uninterested in making Mega Man great again, it's up to fans to show the Japanese company the way forward.

Enter Mega Man 2.5D, a fan-made Mega Man game eight years in the making.

What's cool about Mega Man 2.5D is that it includes a co-op mode, which sees two players team up to fight Dr. Wily, and the camera perspective can be changed - a mechanic used in the single-player mode.

The video, below, shows off gameplay. It looks pretty cool!

Mega Man 2.5D is out now and you can download it from the website of chief creator Peter Sjöstrand. Give it a shot before Capcom sends in the lawyers.
