Well this is a surprise. Capcom has announced that Street Fighter X Mega Man, a fangame created by Seow Zong Hui has been given an official blessing by the bigwigs and will be available as a free download through the Capcom-Unity blog on December 17.
So what is Street Fighter X Mega Man? It’s a PC game that brings Mega Man back to his 8-bit roots for a battle against eight Street Fighters. Each Street Fighter character has been given an 8-bit makeover, but their powers (including Ryu’s Hadoken, Dhalsim’s stretchy arms, and Chun Li’s Lightning Kicks) are all included. Naturally, Mega Man will be able to equip each Street Fighter’s special attack after defeating them in a one-on-one fight. In addition to eight Street Fighter-themed levels, the game will include an original soundtrack supplied by noted chiptune maestro Luke Esquivel (aka “A_Rival”).
