Mega Man Online Announced…for South Korea

Jun 09, 2010 // jgonzo

Sorry to get your hopes up, only to dash them away immediately with that headline but it’s true: a Mega Man online game was announced last week by Capcom Japan. I was hesitant to post about it BECAUSE it’s only coming out for South Korea, but I felt that you folks should at least know something about it. Says Capcom Japan’s COO, Haruhiro Tsujimoto in an interview with Nikkei Trendy :

First, it will be launched in South Korea. From there, it’s necessary to think about the development in Taiwan and China. Moreover, there are a great deal of Rockman fans in Japan as well. Though there are no plans currently, if Japanese gamers show interest in the game, the possibility to release it here exists.

The game will be developed by Korean company Neowiz and will feature characters from the Mega Man X series in a 2D MMO setting, a la Maple Story.

We’ll tell you more as we get more info!

What do you folks think? Does this sound like something you’d like to get your hands on in a Western release? Maybe it’s too early to make a decision, since we know so little.

Either way, let your voices be heard in the comments!

Thanks to the Mega Man Network for the interview translation!
