Dead Rising 2 producer Keiji Inafune is working on downloadable Xbox Live and PlayStation Network title Mega Man Universe, Capcom has confirmed. "For the next chapter in this legacy of excellence, Capcom aims to deliver the most creative Mega Man experience yet. In Mega Man Universe, imagination is the star of the game," the official blurb says.
"We are thrilled to finally be able to announce Mega Man Universe," Kenji Inafune, head of research and development management, and Mega Man's original designer, said.
"This game will break the mould and challenge the conventional wisdom of what a Mega Man game can be. When fans finally get to see it, I believe they'll envision their most far-out Mega Man dreams coming true."
But what kind of game is it? "Gamers can expect Mega Man Universe to bring the core experience fans want while delivering on the promise of innovation that Capcom is known for. Its official: classic gaming will never be same again." Glad that's cleared up.
We've heard mention of Mega Man Universe before. Back in April Capcom trademarked the title.
