Maverick Hunter: Canceled Mega Man FPS Revealed
 

Taking a page from Metroid Prime, Capcom almost gave us a Mega Man FPS in 2010.

From Polygon:

Quote:

In 2010, Capcom tapped the talent behind Metroid Prime to bring Mega Man into the modern age — only to have the game suffer the fate of similar recent attempts to find a new audience for the 8-bit hero.

Codenamed Maverick Hunter, the first-person shooter had the blessing of Mega Man's creator and a talented team tasked with attracting a new generation of fans. But the departure of Keiji Inafune likely killed the most interesting take on the 25-year-old character to date.
We actually need a new, good Mega Man game in my opinion.

FPS is not the way to make a new Megaman game.

FPS IS the way to make a new Contra game.

Or third person that at times would shift to 2.5D for the more crazy missile riding parts...

Wait, Jaz, I think we are onto something here...

Looked a lot like Vanquish without the hyper sliding.

They cancelled Meganman Legends 3 and gave us RE6. Capcom the wise!

It was the reason I got a 3DS at launch. (first one) Ironically the best games Capcom has to offer are in the 3DS.

Mega Man FPS is not the way to go. I wasn't even that happy with the Metroid games going into FPS. There's already enough fuggin FPS games damnit!

And I'm still let down that they cancelled Mega Man Legends 3. Was one of the games I was looking forward to when the 3DS came out. Now all I really have for it is Super Mario 3D and Paper Mario. Well.. Kingdom Hearts as well, but I can't play with that fucking awful camera view.

I can´t wait for a new Megaman game... and I wouldn´t mind it being an FPS. Specially if it was from the Metroid Prime team, I really liked that one.
