I mean, everyone who heard the news was overwhelmed by the warm fuzzy feelings they had. I was excited too, until I saw the game in motion. What I saw took me back to the first footage of that abomination Keiji Inafune announced a little after his departure. Mighty No 9 had all the trappings of a Mega Man game, but something smelled off. As more footage and eventually the finished game got into the hands of gamers, the off smell became a fully rotten egg. Do I think Mega Man 11 will be that bad? Not at all. I can't help but be nervous when I look at the announce trailer, though.
It's pretty obvious whenever Capcom has done too much with the Mega Man franchise, the results aren't that great. Mega Man 7 and 8, which were released on the SNES and PS1, respectively, paled in comparison to what we were used to in the NES games in the franchise. Before you get in an uproar about Mega Man X, Legends, Battle Network, etc Those games did what they were supposed to do on the consoles they originated on, but deviations led to them not being so good. Take for instance Mega Man X7 and X8. Those are easily the worst games with the words Mega and Man on the cover. I'm purposely ignoring that Mega Man Soccer happened, by the way.
