In general, the US legal system, especially patent law allows for companies to be far more litigious. I can guarantee you that Capcom did not patent "multiple boss format platforming game with the ability to acquire the boss' powers", and even if they did, they would most likely not pursue legal action.

They have been far more content to **** all over Inafune's creations and the legacy of Mega Man, because that's honestly more of a dick move than suing for money.

Also I'd just like to point out that there were multiple games that aped Mega Man's style back in the day.

Check out Whomp 'Em, Power Blade, and Shatterhand.

So is this what Inafune has been doing the past 2-3 years? Now he has the balls to ask for fundraising to make a MM clone?

Of course it's going to reach it's goal. The thing that bothers me is that it appears the game is near completion so why does he need money now?


Apparently solidifying the concept of the game means that they're nearing completion.

I can't say I'm interested in it tbh but Inafune is the man. Onimusha was such an awesome series and it desperately needs a reboot!

Technically, if he gets the support he wants here, he may go to other neglected franchises he once dealt with.

The guy obviously wants to take care of the franchises that Capcom effectively buried and butchered.

All I really wanted Capcom to do was give us HD remixes of the Megaman series. I would easily pay $100+ for that. Sadly, I doubt we will ever get a thing since Capcom hates its fans.

About 600k in one day. That's not bad at all! I reckon the Japanese must be backing this one en masse.

At this point, I don't think Capcom would even approve a Megaman LAWSUIT.

60 dollars in.
I used to play Megaman X like it was a religion. xD
Even today I can still do ~1 hour speedruns without even so much as a worry or missed timing.
