Capcom Europe wrote:Mega Man Universe, the latest entry in Capcom’s long-running Mega Man™ series, will be a revolutionary take on the seminal classic, setting course for a new chapter in classic gaming.
Mega Man games are beloved by fans all over the world. Since their debut in 1987, Mega Man has remained a videogame icon, having starred in more than 140 titles over the last 22 years. The connection he’s made with pop culture at large has extended beyond games and into cartoons, toys, clothing, comics, kid’s meals, and more. Part of that popularity is driven by the series’ ability to evolve over time yet consistently retain the addictive gameplay experience that sets Mega Man games apart.

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.

“We are thrilled to finally be able to announce Mega Man Universe,” said Kenji Inafune, Head of Research and Development Management for Capcom Entertainment. “This game will break the mold 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.”

Inafune is committed to helping craft a Mega Manexperience that meets the highest expectations of Capcom fans. Most recently Mega Man™ 10echoed this fact when its classic design and compelling gameplay made it one of the most sought after digital downloads of the year. 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.


Gamespot Preview and Teaser Trailer

Multiple versions of Mega Man (men?), Ryu and Arthur? It's pretty vague on what kind of game this is supposed to be, but the teaser appears to imply customizations out the ying-yang.
Sega 02: "SONIC TEAM. The Sonic Team development studio was established to execute the wishes of Sega."
Sega 03: "It was intended to enact the business strategy we had created."
Sega 05: "However, it appears to have become dominated by a single, zealous individual."
Sega 04: "Yes it has. We must take it back into our own dominion."
Sega 01: "It is time. We must restore SONIC TEAM and the Sonic series to their proper role."

"Iizuka, you will take responsibility for betraying Sega."

Yeah, see. I was going to post that, but I already have like three topics in this thread, so I was just waiting for someone else to post it.

I'll wait till more news and details comes out, but when I first heard this I though it was the Korean MMMMMO but  expanded for an North American audience featuring a huge cross over of ALL Mega Man series (ZX included).

Of course they are questions, but part of me figured that CAPCOM only unveiled this as a counter act the yearly "WHERE'S LEGENDS 3" questions.

Looking forward to this.
A person's thoughts are like water in a deep well, but someone with insight can draw them out.

Tokyo Game Show was the last we heard anything new of Mega Man Universe. If you don’t recall, that was back in September of last year. There’s been speculation abounds concerning the game’s fate, but we finally have an official word on Universe’s status. Over at Ask Capcom, Christian Svensson has this to say:
“Unfortunately, I have no new news to share on the project. It’s not dead though… and it’s changed a lot.”
Back at PAX, we’d gotten word that the game was being aimed for a March release, but it seems like we’re probably going to miss that now. Mega Man Universe has had a lot of criticism, both for its art style and play controls for those who have sampled it. Personally, my main issue has always been about a reliance on user-made stages and a perceived lack of content. But other than that, I can’t say I thought too poorly of the game. Still, it will be interesting to see where these new developments take it. We’ll keep you posted.
EDIT: Nevermind. Game is canceled!

^ Yeah, I saw that. Can't say I didn't see it coming, it's been months since we've heard or seen anything new. Without Inafune it was bound to be shelved.
