Mega Man Universe Gets Mega Canned


Mega Man was to have his own little virtual universe in which users could create and share self-created levels with each other, but alas, fate is a cruel mega mistress. Whether due to Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune leaving Capcom, or “various [mega] circumstances”, as they’ve stated, Mega Man Universe has indeed been cancelled. The game didn’t look super exciting, but I’m sure with the level editor, it could have been mega cool. It was due to hit PSN and Xbox Live later in 2011.

If you’re wondering what’s up with all of the “mega” talk, it’s because some old 80’s cartoon called “Captain N, The Game Master” had Mega Man saying mega all the mega time. Just watch this clip and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Good grief, he even says “mega hi” right there in the beginning. I’ve never wanted to punch Mega Man so hard.

Here’s a clip of Mega Man Universe to get a glimpse of what could have been:
