Free 8-bit PC downloadable crossover game arriving December 17; stars Blue Bomber and features eight Street Fighter-themed levels and bosses.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter and Mega Man franchises, Capcom today announced a new 8-bit game called Street Fighter X Mega Man. The PC title will be available for free through Capcom's official website at Capcom-Unity.com beginning December 17.
Developed by Capcom fan Seow Zong Hui, with "direction and support" from the publisher, Street Fighter X Mega Man focuses on Mega Man and boasts eight Street Fighter-themed levels and bosses from the history of the fighting franchise. In addition, Street Fighter X Mega Man features an original soundtrack created by fan Luke Esquivel.

Free stuff and some nerds still find a reason to get angry. When the zombie apocalypse comes, the angry nerds will hopefully be the first to go.
@BoozerX That shows just how much of an idiot you are. An 8-bit Megaman game is better than a lot of new gen games currently out there
This isn't Capcom scrapping a game to make this... This is a huge Mega Man fan, like us, making something really cool. At least Capcom isn't giving a cease and desist. Doesn't make up for how bad Capcom has treated the franchise but this isn't getting released instead of a "real" game, it's this or nothing.
@HandsomeRay The sad truth is Mega Man games just don't sale as much copies as "real games" do. Only fans are buying Mega Man games at this point.
What's ridiculous about this is how fanboys are easily letting Capcom off the hook for this fan made game that nobody really wanted to begin with. I mean, where's Legends 3? And do those fanboys even care for Legends 3? Heck no, some of them even said to forget about it.
You can tell right away that these people that are defending this are more like defending Capcom rather than Mega Man himself.
wow....they scrapped Megaman Universe....to release this? another cross over game, another gimic.
great move, bravo
@boarwar I see Capcom got you. It's sad to see a comment such as this so I will just tell you the truth: there was no such thing as Megaman Universe. It was just one teaser trailer that they made. It was never developed as a game nor did they have any intention of making it as a game.
It's sad how Capcom celebrating Megaman's 25th anniversary by releasing a 'FAN'-made game. To me Megaman is my favourite out of all Capcom's IPs. It's like Mario of Nintendo. I neglect Capcom as much as Capcom neglects Megaman. Hey at least the game is free :)
shit i cant wait for this one! thx to the guy who thought this lil gem up and came through big time! your that dude!
Why bother making a game, in reality Mega Man characters on the whole would simply blast those Street Fighters from a range beyond which the silly and worthless hadouken can't even whip up a breeze...But then arcade fighters aren't about realism or, in this case, even balance, just about making an unlikely comparison between truly unmatched foes. Oh, and trash talk.
@Poinciana funny thing is that they did that With Megaman Powered Up with the Roll DLC.
it was still free.
Good for the person who found some support from Capcom to do this legaly. But still CAPCOM is shafting PC gamers with SFXT still in version 1.02 and still no info on RE6 PC.
Time to put things in perspective. Anyone who thinks Capcom is doing us a great service by allowing a fan to make his/her own SF cross-over is sadly mistaken. For one it's awfully nice of this person to make an SF/MM game however I feel Capcom is using him as a scapegoat. They left it up to this person to create an Anniversary game because the company refuses to properly acknowledge the blue bomber. When it's all said and done we still don't have the following:
1.) No Megaman for Marvel vs Capcom 3
2.) STILL no Megaman for Ultimate MvC3
3.) No Megaman Legends 3
4.) No Megaman X HD Collection
5.) No new Megaman games
The least they can do is release the Arcade games (Power Battle 1 & 2) for all major platforms but they don't even do that. Why do they hate MM THE CHARACTER so much? They KNOW what most people want, they insist upon ignoring us the fans. I'll download this game since it required a whole lot of effort and decipline for said user to execute such a fan tribute but I'm NOT letting Capcom off the hook and you guys shouldn't either. We should be pulling their coattails instead of kissing their feet.
Agree. I don't like Capcom nowadays
@TheArcade Yep, but knowing Capcom they could have easily charged for this. The fact they won't is nice.
@SaltyMeatballs Actually, Capcom took a fan made game that would have been made available to the public regardless (i.e. using Streets of Rage Remake V5 logic) and now they're releasing it as their own.
This is not their game and they're touting it as if it belongs to them. Let's be careful about granting them credit they don't deserve.
@TheArcade Dude, did you not watch the trailer? There are no robot masters to defeat.
I saw it... you fight a bunch of Street Fighters. But what are you trying to say?
why do i get more excited about fan-made games than published ones? you can almost feel the emotion of the makers pouring from the game. www.sonicfanremix.com < PERFECT example
