Capcom Says It’s Always Considering What’s Next For Mega Man

“Mega Man is one of our highly-valued IPs”.

Mega Man has received a lot of collections in recent years, but there hasn’t actually been a new mainline entry in the series since the release of Mega Man 11 in 2018. It seems there is no need to worry though, as Capcom has once again reassured fans that this classic series is still a big part of its plans going forward.

During its 45th General Shareholders meeting, Capcom mentioned how Mega Man is still one of the company’s most “highly-valued IPs” and it’s always “considering how to create games for it on an ongoing basis” (thanks, Rockman Corner).

Unfair fight.

Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Skeleton Crew Studio have revealed Forestrike, a kung-fu roguelike all about solving puzzles and landing punches.

Set to launch on Switch next year, Forestrike will put you in the shoes of Yu, a martial artist on a mission across the country to save his Emperor.

Random: Artist’s Pokémon-Meets-Paper Mario Mash-Up Is Seriously Awesome

Bold folds.

We have mused on the idea of a ‘Paper Zelda’ game before, but ‘Paper Pokémon’? That’s not something we ever thought we needed. Until today, that is.

Animator and artist Spyrook has created a Pokémon-meets-Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door mash-up and it looks incredible.

Pik up your life.

Soapbox features enable our individual writers and contributors to voice their opinions on hot topics and random stuff they’ve been chewing over. Today, on Pikmin 4‘s first anniversary, Alana thinks the half-plant, half-animal creatures known as Pikmin helped her move across the globe…

I define many of the biggest moments in my life contextually. What was I doing, what movies did I like, where was I living, and – perhaps most importantly – what games was I playing? Attaching memories and moments to objects or things is just human nature, whether they’re positive or negative. Personally, it helps me form an attachment that goes beyond “Hey, this video game is pretty good!”
