This is what Mega Man under Ninja Theory would have been like.

And it was quietly cancelled, thank goodness.

Holy balls, the combat actually looks amazing.

I would have been for this 100%, as a long time rabid MegaMan fan and especially an X diehard.

Would have bought a dozen PC copies of it.

BTW Metroid Prime team =/= Ninja Theory. Not even Team Ninja.

Leaving the gameplay aside, they shared the same mentality of GRIMDARK dudebro reboots. I mean, what in the name of sanity is this character design? Bomberman Act Zero's bastard son?

Might be just me but I feel that Vanquish gameplay would really fit into the concept rather than an FPS.

at least MM was spared.

It would work as a FPS game, but not a Megaman game. That would be a Metroid Prime with a Megaman skin.

I'm glad it was canned. I don't think Capcom could g on with that, lol.

Really dodged a bullet there.

This X had a human face too. The red dots cyborg thing was only for the armor transformation.

Apparently the face is holographic. I think it looks sick for a spinoff series. We all know unlike DMC, MegaMan has proven to work with several "series" at once.

I actually wouldn't have minded this, but if they have time to work on MM games I wonder why MML3 was shot down...
