Capcom has just announced through its official Twitter account that Mega Man I-VI will be landing on iOS, and Android. Called Mega Man Mobile, the game releases in January, and there is also a link to a sign-up page that will notify players when the title is officially available.
What’s interesting here is the question of wether these games will be released separately, or as a package? The title: Mega Man Mobile seems to suggest that these games won’t be sold separately. However, Telltale Games usually has a single download that serves as a portal for further episodic purchases. Perhaps the games will be available through something similar? Still, it would be nice to get all of these amazing games with a single purchase.
Lastly, while this is a nice idea, it’s hard to see how these titles will be playable with a touch-screen interface. The Mega Man series is notorious for its difficulty, and responsive controls are an absolute must to topple the series’ bosses. Let’s hope that Capcom has kept that in mind.
