I can’t stop watching this amazing trailer. Thank you everyone who supported Mega Man being in Smash Bros., you made my personal dream and the dreams of many, many others a reality! What an incredible day.
-UPDATE- Additional footage popping up, like Developer Commentary. I’ll have them posted after the “More” link!
There’s not much to say except “make sure you’re awake” and “cross your fingers”. The E3 Nintendo Direct is coming very soon, and a tweet from Sakurai has confirmed it will show off the very first trailer for Super Smash Bros. 4. While it will be an exciting watch no matter what, this would also be a key opportunity to show off any third party guests joining the fight, so keep the hope alive for Mega Man!
The Nintendo Direct starts Tuesday, June 11th at 7 am PST, and you can watch it directly at Nintendo’s E3 site (which also has a handy count down timer):
After two years of near-complete silence since Super Smash Bros. 4′s announcement, Nintendo is finally ready to unveil the much anticipated game next week. Nintendo has set up an official E3 website which hosts a few teases about non-Smash Bros. titles, as well as a countdown clock to the all important Nintendo Direct taking place on June 11th, at 7 a.m. PST. This Nintendo Direct is expected to act as the main showcase for all of Nintendo’s major new announcements, since Nintendo announced two months ago that they would not be holding a traditional press conference at E3 2013. Furthermore, Nintendo has confirmed in recent press releases that Super Smash Bros. news is on schedule for an E3 showcase, which means this E3 will not be a disappointing repeat of last year’s show where Smash Bros. was not seen at all.
In the days leading up to E3, numerous rumors have arisen regarding the upcoming roster for Super Smash Bros. 4. Considering how tight of a lid Nintendo keeps on their games in-development, it is best to not put faith into any list and simply wait for the big day (With big hopes of Mega Man popping up, of course!).
Hey all fan artists (and fans of fan art)! The great and powerful Kaigetsudo recently created a Super Smash Bros. 4 Wishlist MEME for Smash Bros. aficionados to render their top choices on! The piece has a spiffy design that allows for 4 Nintendo newcomers and a single special third-party guest, downloadable as a PSD file or available to copy and edit as is. With E3 inching closer and closer, what better way is there to exhaust all of this pent up hype than to draw your dream roster?
If you wish to participate, please send me a link of your work and I’ll be happy to post it here. Some top notch artists have already completed their work, which you can see by hitting the “READ MORE” button. I’m currently working on my own, and would love to be able to list a whole bunch!
A major new poll is happening over at SmashBoards, headed by the veteran member Shortiecanbrawl. The poll works like a check box survey, allowing voters to choose as many or as little of their most wanted things in each category. Mega Man choices are included in each of these sections, so if you have the time, please participate in this interesting fan poll!
Shortiecanbrawl is providing occasional updates whenever a voter count milestone is reached. Visit his official thread to check for updates; listed below are the latest updates he has posted since the creation of this article.
Thanks Astarisborn94 for the information!
What once was the “Flash Games” page has now become the “Fan Games” page! While it still contains a link to the Flash version of “Mega Man Scramble!!” at the bottom, the page now includes links to all sorts of Mega Man fan games. I have wanted to include a listing of games like this on the site for a long time, but did not know the best way to go about it. While it is still in heavy need of fine-tuning, I figured I might as well give it my best shot. The list on the page derives from my forum topic at Cutstuff where these games and more have been collected from the information of various members. For now, I have left out non-freeware games and games that are incomplete or only have demos.
While I hope that the list is useful for those looking to try some top-notch fan game creations, I know that it still has a long way to go. At the very least, I would like to also incorporate picture thumbnails and list each game’s type. If there’s any other features you would like to see added to the list, reply to this post with your requests. Also, feel free to link games that are not on the list, or talk about some of your favorite Mega Man fan games.
Don’t forget to show your mom some love today!
Last week, Mega Man was released as a downloadable Wii U title for America and Europe, while Rockman 3 came out for Japan. In all, there are currently 3 Miiverse communities for Mega Man available.
I figure this is as good a way as any to show support for Mega Man in Smash Bros., and I went to check if anyone had already voiced their support. There was quite a few text posts about getting Mega Man in Smash Bros., some that were met with a healthy amount of “Yeah”s and some that had multiple replies with heated discussion on the topic. However, pictures speak louder than words on the Miiverse, and so I did my best to collect every drawn image that had some relation to Mega Man in Smash Bros. (posted below!)
Nintendo recently shocked gamers everywhere with an announcement about not having their typical E3 press conference in 2013. The past few years of E3 have had Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo all having a “main” conference where they show off exciting new technology, relay business statistics and strategies, and debut games all live on stage. Nintendo is seemingly dropping that type of presentation in favor of smaller events, where they will personally address smaller crowds and allow them to play the latest games. Many believe the company will use Nintendo Directs around the time of E3 as a way to deliver their exclusive footage of new games to people worldwide.
E3 2013 is also supposed to be when the public gets its first look at the new Smash Bros. game(s). Whether this will be through screenshots, a trailer, or even playable demos at E3, no one knows. What we do know is what we have seen in the past, specifically the debut footage of Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
