Capcom announced at the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Grand Finals in San Francisco, CA today that on December 17, 2012, to commemorate the 25th Anniversaries of both the Street Fighter and Megaman franchises, they will be releasing for Street Fighter x Megaman for PC download at the extremely affordable price of “Free”.
The game is a crossover that is done in the retro 8-bit style of the Megaman games of the past, as well as the more recent MM9 and MM10, except that instead of the usual robot masters the Blue Bomber usually faces, he’ll be squaring off with 8-bit renditions of favorites from the Street Fighter universe like Chun-Li, Dhalsim, Rose and of course, Ryu. In true style, Megaman will acquire the powers of his fallen enemies and use them to tackle the next combatant that stands in his way. Additionally, this is a fan-collaborated game and features an amazing mash-up soundtrack by A_Rival.

Wow. What an amazing way to close out the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Celebration and bring in the Megaman 25th Anniversary Celebration. I can’t wait for this game on a personal note, it shows that Capcom hasn’t completely given up on the Blue Bomber just yet and maybe has some great surprises in store for fans!
