Mega Man Revamp
« on: September 25, 2010, 11:24:10 pm »
Just my personal opinion but I think it would be good to revamp the megaman franchise and make some upgrades to bring it into the 21st century.

Besides Mega Man Zero, Battle Network, and those other dozen games they made in the last ten years?

Unless you mean the classic Mega Man games. But I doubt they'd go further than what they've been doing for MM9 and 10. Plus MM Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X didn't seem to do too well.

Well, there's an MMORPG in the works, and 2.5D platformer with a level creator and character customization option and the Megaman from the American box art for Megaman 2 is a playable character.

...Oh, Legends 3 has been announced for the upcoming Nintendo handheld; the 3DS.

I actually enjoyed the legend games, but Im thinking they need a whole new direction, to keep up with the halos and gears era, it would be different for mega man but im sure they could find a way to make it work. if they tried with the life like graphics and what not.

A Halo-esque Megaman MMO would be neat, but there would be a small chance that it could drive the final nail into the franchise's coffin. Battle Network and Starforce brought a bunch of repetitive sequels that picked up on a few story elements from the prequels making them great standalone games but not really establishing any sort of story short of "The world is in danger, use the internet/wave network to save it from *insert evil organization/god here*".

Classic established a timeline, a villain and an ongoing story and seems more like a single epic saga than a series of prequels and sequels. X serves as the sequel saga to Classic, Zero does the same for X and Classic, ZX does the same for Zero, X and Classic(not nearly as much but it still counts) and Legends has the potential to finish what has so far been 23 years in the making. Drastically changing the formula could kill the franchise(just look at Bomberman Act Zero) or breath new life into it. I don't think Capcom would risk it. They'd sooner crank out a bunch of mediocre games that still sell than make one that takes a huge step outside of the box they're comfortable in and may or may not fly off the shelves in record time and spawn sequels that may or may not become huge hits.

I think the people working on it lack the creativity to effectively help the franchise to boom again. I mean Zelda is still around and very strong, mario somewhat (though i wouldnt think too much)

I would be outraged if they made more remakes for old games. X isn't the same if it doesn't have the bad graphics.
