Capcom USA’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson has told members on the Capcom Unity forums that the problem with Mega Man was that the franchise had too many competing sub-series. Svensson said that they are very concerned about creating, what he says is, greater brand confusion.
Thanks for the suggestion. I (and probably I alone so please don’t ascribe said belief to “Capcom”) think one of the problems MM has had as a brand is that we’ve had too many competing splinter sub-brands within it. I’m not sure starting yet another is the way to get the franchise as a whole back on track more than creating greater brand confusion but we’ll take it under advisement.
Thanks for the suggestion and your passion.
