Today is the 26th anniversary of the Mega Man franchise, as the first Mega Man game was released in Japan on December 17, 1987. This also concludes the 25th anniversary celebrations in North America. While no new games were released, some commemorative merchandise such as this statue were announced by Capcom then quickly sold out.
Happy birthday, little buddy. Don't forget that we're still here.

Just off the press comes the news that Capcom will finally rerelease all the Mega Man games available for the original GameBoy / GameBoy Color to the 3DS eShop. This includes Mega Man II to V, alongside the two Xtreme titles. The first Mega Man game had already been made available some time back. No release date is known yet, but be assured that it's only a matter of time now!

With the Mega Man franchise now entering it's 25th anniversary, Capcom officially released the fan-made Street Fighter x Mega Man last December. More surprises are said to be in store until the end of this year. While the series has unfortunately seen it's third major cancellation in three years, with the Korean-only Rockman Online getting the axe, there have been plenty of downloadable re-releases to keep players busy on new systems.
As local news go, the big project I've been alluding to in the past few years has seen a quiet launch last month in the forums. A formal announcement will be made here once it has matured a bit!
Thanks for being around for all these years! :-)
