Game Gifts of 2012 – Street Fighter X Mega Man



Ok, now this one Game Gift is a bit of a cheat as I’ve never played it before – however I have a good feeling it will do just fine: Street Fighter X Mega Man. To coincide with the upcoming 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite Blue Bomber, Capcom and a rather inventive gentleman by the name of Seow Zong Hui is bring to the masses this new adventure. Yes this is real thing, and unlike that Streets of Rage Remake, this pie in the sky platformer has Capcom’s full blessing so there won’t be any big corporate buzz kill this time. Set still in the future, I guess, Mega Man finally locks down Wily and his robot masters. However a robots work is never done as now the world strongest Street Fighters want to their mettle on his metal. And that’s pretty much it: MegaMan goes to a Street Fighter’s stage, fights their minions (didn’t know they had minions), and if he survives challenge them in a 1-on-1 brawl. Now you’re probably thinking this concept isn’t new (the Capcom vs series, most of them anyway); but this time around MegaMan has the homefield advantage as everything is in glorious 8-bit nostalgia and subjected to MegaMan reality. Even to the point where once MegaMan defeats them he gets their power, freaken sweet. The best thing of all people, its free 100%. Sure it’s only available on the PC but that’s a small price to pay for the most epic non-rap battle in history, and thus a perfect gift for Christmas. The download will be available at Capcom Unity on December 17th.
