Capcom has confirmed that it's going to release an updated version of Street Fighter X Mega Man, dubbed V2, which should bring many bug fixes and improvements to the free downloadable game that was released last month on the PC.Capcom concluded its Street Fighter 25th Anniversary projects last year and, right in December, it started celebrating the 25th birthday of its Mega Man franchise.
The first anniversary gift for Mega Man fans was a special, completely free downloadable game called Street Fighter X Mega Man, in which the iconic hero must face off against characters from the Street Fighter franchise.
The game was a success and now Capcom's Senior Community Manager, Brett Elston, has confirmed that an updated version of the game will be released later this month.
"We’ve heard some reports of issues with certain controllers, and we hope to address some of that with the upcoming V2 of SFxMM, which is set to come out later this month. It’s not adding content, but should address a handful of performance issues," he told the Mega Man Network.
Elston also highlighted just why Capcom, together with the fan responsible for the project, decided to release Street Fighter X Mega Man on the PC and that there are no plans to add new content or bring it to other platforms.
"PC is the easiest way to deliver a free game. Open platforms are made for this. Bringing it elsewhere requires all sorts of approvals, submissions and so on, which affect price and timing. Furthermore, once it’s out for free, how many would buy the same game on a console when it’s identical? Could we add more stuff and charge for a different take on SFxMM? Possibly, but there are no plans at this time."
You can expect Street Fighter X Mega Man V2 to receive a release date soon.
