Most of us recall the crazy Mega Man Universe teaser which featured claymation Mega Man, 8-bit Mega Man, NES Mega Man cover Old Man Mega Man, Ryu from Street Fighter, and more (which is not to be confused with the Korean-made MMO Mega Man Online). Most of us probably recall there wasn’t any gameplay to be seen — although now that some has shown up, I kind of which it hadn’t. Right now, it just looks like a normal 2-D Mega Man game with oddly designed 3-D characters. It’s not exciting at all. Sure, there’s a glimpse of Ryu at the end, but not playing — and even if he did, it’s just be a weird looking Mega Man version of Super Mario Crossover. I just hope there ends up being more to it than this. Thanks to SelectiveRealism for the tip anyways.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.
