I almost wish Mega Man games would stop doing this entirely. Not because it can't be well done. I enjoyed it in Battle Network 2, in Zero 2, and so on. But when the prospects of a sequel are known to be doubtful, I'd prefer we tie up some loose ends so the players can enjoy a little closure just in case. Not do the exact opposite.

We had to wait over a decade to see MegaMan Volnutt get rescued from Elysium and fight the elders (actually, I should probably watch what I say here, since that isn't guaranteed yet). How long do you think we'll wait before we find out Master Thomas' reset plans? Another 6 years? Longer? Never?

Mega Man Battle Network 2 was obviously set to get a sequel, so I was fine with the cliffhanger. The same goes for Zero 2 (which I played after Zero 4 was available, actually, but how cares). One of the endings I'm the most satisfied with is Battle Network 6's: everything's done, you recap the follow-up events, you end on a positive note, and it's over.

I'm with you on keeping those cliffhangers to a minimum. ZX Advent's ending closes a story chapter nicely, even if I found it to fall a bit flat. The secret ending, however, completely turns the plot of the entire game on it's head and very obviously requires a follow-up, and yet it's been over 3 years already. The Inti Creates team has been good overall at keeping the plot consistent, I'm surprised to see them do this.

IntiCreates probably wants to make a sequel, and Capcom probably won't let them.

That's actually very possible. They were the ones to make the pitch for Mega Man 9, after all, so while their voices can be heard, maybe they don't have enough pull to make this happen right now.

OH MY GOD. I NEVER SAW THAT ENDING!!!

I... wow.

Anyway, a comment on the Youtube video says...

Is that Capcom's way of saying the're sick of this series and want to start over?
