A few weeks ago, Capcom announced that Megaman Mobile would be coming to Android in early January 2017. Now, that release time frame has been narrowed down to an exact date: Thursday, January 5, 2017. That’s right! In just under 48 hours, Megaman will be officially available on Android worldwide.
Everyone has a pretty good opinion about what Mega Man should be like on any platform. This is doubly true for mobile devices, and once everyone saw the gameplay preview video for the upcoming mobile ports of the first six Mega Man games, a lot of people became concerned about the performance that was witnessed in that video.
Capcom apparently decided to follow up their news from the other day regarding the upcoming release of the original Megaman 1-6 games for mobile devices. If you missed this news, Capcom announced that they will be porting over the first six Megaman games to mobile devices. Each one will be sold individually.
Capcom has always had a love/hate relationship for mobile games. On one hand, they love releasing mobile games on iOS, but for some reason it seems they hate to do the same for Android. It seems Capcom is finally giving Android a real chance, as the first 6 games from the Blue Bomber’s 8-bit era are coming to Android in January of 2017. This isn’t the first time Megaman has seen a mobile device.
