You may already be playing the demo for Mighty No. 9, Mega Man’s spiritual successor from the minds behind the original, but there’s also a full-blown, honest-to-god Mega Man game and you can get it right now.
Mega Man: Super Fighting Robotisn’t any reimagining, it’s a pure retro homage to the old games, recreated in the same visual style, with the same animations and game mechanics. It’s also unofficial.
Check out the launch trailer:
It seems like a lovingly crafted product that aims to recapture the magic of the original games. There’s a timer upon completion, tougher difficulties, and there are even secrets that are hinted at on the game’s Facebook page.
The game’s creator Matthew St George has spent the last two years making it, so hopefully Capcom don’t force him to take it down. He has released it for free, after all. You can download it HERE.
Let us know what you think if you have a go.
