The idea of Nintendo making a new MegaMan game for the Nintendo Switch has been discussed over and over for a while now. In fact many fans of the series had hoped that there would be a new MegaMan game for the Nintendo Wii-U as well. However, the truth is that it’s less than likely to happen. The closest thing that we got to a 2D side scrolling MegaMan game with 3D graphics was Mighty No. 9 which was available on multiple game. Insoles including the PS4, Xbox One, Wii-U and the Nintendo 3DS.
Shortly, after its release back in 2016, Mighty No. 9 had received a poor reception mainly from critics due to technical issues. Then again, Mighty No. 9 was developed by mainly by two other gaming companies instead of Capcom. The closest thing that we might get from Capcom in terms of a new MegaMan game for the Nintendo Switch would be hardware releases of older NES, SNES and PSX titles. While reviving the MegaNan series sounds great in theory it might be a poor idea in practice. However, even though the 2D side scrolling shooter genre is not as popular now as it was in the 80’s and 90’s the nostalgia of reviving the series would probably turn the heads of many people who grew up in the 8 & 16 bit era.
