A new game in the long-running Mega Man series of games, and planned for release over Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network, Mega Man Universe will be “a revolutionary take on the seminal classic, setting course for a new chapter in classic gaming.”
It’s classic, but also revolutionary!
Announced in an official press release from Capcom, not much was actually revealed about the game, except that Mega Man Universe will continue the franchise’s ability to evolve to meet the demands of modern-day gaming audiences, while retaining the elements that make Mega Man unique.
