"We haven't heard anything from Capcom at this point. If it turns into a legal battle, then obviously it'll be lawyers that hash out what the solutions are. However, from my perspectiv, Mega Man is something that I created. It would be like having a child, then having somebody adopt that child and then saying that child isn't really yours. That child has your DNA in it, no matter what anybody says. So, since my style, my spirit isn't something that I can't change as a human being, if I create anything and it's something that looks like [Mega Man], well, it was created by the same person, me. To say that Mighty No. 9 looks like Mega Man is to say that my work looks like my work.

But we have been careful. The base gameplay is not the same as Mega Man. The naming, the character, all that is not the same. The details are very different. Personally, I've gone out of my way to make sure that this is something original. And if Capcom does come back and say something, I would be surprised."

i don't think capcom can do something about this , this is not a carbon copy of megaman neither are names or character , the style looks similar but not enough to sue them.

And flipping them off with both hands as I do so.

Why would they react? Capcom doesn't give a s*** about megaman.

They don't care about the series, but they are very protective of the IP.

Though Shovel Knight is basically a Megaman clone gameplay-wise and they haven't done anything.. yet.

Aye but this is...

*checks Mighty's KS*

Currently $721,399 that they're missing out on. They DO give a S*** about money.

Capcom would not give a **** about such a paltry sum of money. What's a lot to you, me and the vast majority of the world is pocket change to a company like Capcom.

That's a little shocking, considering how Capcom doesn't even care about Megaman anymore, I'm still horribly disappointed at how they canceled Mega man Legends 3...

And guess who you can blame for its cancellation. I'll give you a hint; he doesn't work at Capcom anymore and he's currently engaging in a blatant lack of imagination.
