There’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news? New Megaman game! The bad news? Stick around after the jump to find out.

So, yeah, a new Megaman game, been a while hasn’t it? The franchise has seemed dead in its tracks ever since development on Megaman Legends 3 broke down and Inafune left Capcom. Fans were pretty hopeless at the thought of ever getting a new game…but hey, we’ve finally got a new game! The game is called Rockman X Over (Cross Over) and as you can tell, it’s a…cross over. It features every Megaman from the past coming together to stop a never before seen threat. So, new Megaman game? Awesome! Now here’s the bad news…

It’s going to be a “social” game available on only on the iOS (at the moment) It’s definitely got the makings of success given the market for social games, but this probably isn’t the grand return to form fans were thinking of when they called for a new game.



The Story

“It’s a world where all the worlds of Rockman have crossed over. The gulf of space-time has been closed thanks to the efforts of Dr. Wily, Sigma and other villains to Rockman and co.! Dr Light and Dr. Cossack work together in creating a new robot to oppose this crisis. A production model, this robot uses “battle memory” that has been scattered over the world, and possesses infinite potential to transform and increase his power. The player battles evil as this new type robot. Create your own Rockman, and battle with others to protect peace!”
