First Look At Mega Man Universe

Back when Comic-Con 2010 started, we got a neat announcement trailer for Capcom’s upcoming Mega Man Universe game. While it didn’t show any game play, it did show Mega Man changing into Street Fighter’s Ryu and Ghost ‘n Goblins’ Arthur fighting memorable Mega Man enemies. We also got a glimpse of the bad box art version of Mega Man. Well, with PAX around the corner, it seems that Capcom decided to release not one, but a few different trailers.

While each one starts off with Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man, talking about how the announcement trailer has led to to folks discussing what kind of game Universe is, he goes on to say that he hopes that people will get even more excited by the new trailers. From the trailers, it seems that players will go through stages like any other Mega Man game but with different characters. That’s right, there are three trailers and each one has a different version of a “Mega Man.” Also, each trailer ends with a tease of Ryu being chosen but no game play was shown.

I’m calling it now, players will be able to create stages for others to play and that a variety of Capcom characters will be playable, such as Viewtiful Joe and Dante. While I’ll be working during my Labor Day weekend, I’ll try to post any news and update from PAX about Mega Man Universe. Meanwhile, why don’t y’all check out the three trailers, where the other two is available after the jump, to check out the other playable Mega Mans.

Sometimes I sit back and think to myself, why the hell did I ever have my girlfriend buy me that Boom Chair? It sits in a corner of my room, upside down by the way, and has been it that position for a few months now. I hate that thing. Having to hook it up every time I want to play video games and always having the sound completely f*cked up. What a complete waste…
