With Captivate 2010 (Capcom’s industry showcase) having just come to an end, many are still awestruck by the announcement of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, having been in development since 2008. In continuing with this ninja approach, Capcom has just recently trademarked Mega Man Universe with the U.S Patent and Trademark Office.
Speculation has been running rampant with what could be next for our blue robotic hero, but I know it can only mean one thing: Mega Man Hentai!
Wait! No! I meant MMO, I swear!
Everything is anybody’s guess at this point, as there has been literally no disclosure from Capcom about what type of game it’s going to be. I think an MMO is the most logical choice; not based only on the name, but the trend of the industry since the incarnation of WoW has lead many-a-publisher and developers towards a massive multiplayer scale and, at least for a little while, it’s a cash cow. Besides Monster Hunter Tri (which doesn’t apply to the U.S), Capcom doesn’t have their hand in any MMO at the moment, other than that “secret game” they’ve been working on with Monumental Games since sometime last year. Seeing that MvC3 has been in the works since ’08, Mega Man Universe and the “secret” Monumental Games project could very well be one in the same.
Or I could just be a huge asshole and be totally wrong. Keeping checking Gamer Limit to find out!
