Unfortunately, I'm being dead serious. The Mega Man you see above, based off the horrendous original Mega Man box art is going to be a playable character in the PS3/Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken. Looks like he really killed it on the donuts, eh? Check out this bit of info straight from the official Street Fighter X Tekken website.
Known as a Digger, a person who digs up relics from the past for research. He is a hot-tempered man, but has a strong sense of justice and is also very polite. His weak point is that he is easily rattled when backed into a corner. He is always running around in a hurry due to the demands of his partner Roll, and this time he's been asked to travel to Antarctica to retrieve a mysterious box.
Hm, so we got an older, fatter Mega Man Volnutt from the Mega Man Legends series. If this is Capcom's way of making amends for the cancellation of Legends 3, I don't think many bitter fans will find it amusing. But according to a tweet from Yoshiro Ono, the game's producer, this incarnation of Mega Man was in the works for some time.
I don't mean to sound like a typical Capcom hater, but why couldn't they include Classic Mega Man or even X? Would that be so hard? Or maybe Capcom is saving those guys for DLC, or better yet, Street Fighter X Tekken Ultimate Super Turbo HD Remix Arcade Hyper Plus Alpha Edition. Yeah, I know that joke is old hat, but for all we know, Capcom may have some update in store.
