It’s pretty hard to argue against the fact that free games (well most, anyway) are great, especially when it involves a franchise that fans have been clamouring for! So when Street Fighter X Mega Man was released last month, it wasn’t much of a surprise to anyone that the game was wildly popular and rightly so as the game was extremely fun to play, however, it’s not to say that the game was not without it’s problems. The lack of a password or save feature as well as the lack of a confirmation prompt when the player hit (ESC) to exit were particularly frustrating and players were quick to pass on their feedback.
Thankfully, Capcom has taken all of this feedback on board and have announced that Street Fighter X Mega Man V2 will be released this weekend (late Friday the 18th or early Saturday morning). Once again, this update will be free of charge and will contain the following updates and bug fixes:
-A Mega Man 2 style password feature!
-Confirmation prompt before exiting (ESC) or resetting (F12) the game
-E Tank glitch and various other bugs fixed
-Improved controller support (Game defaults to keyboard on launch; make sure controller is plugged in prior to opening the file, then go into Options menu and set keys)
-Take screenshots using F9
-M Bison buffed a bit (This place shall become your grave!)
Note: We have identified known performance issues when running the game on Intel Integrated GPUs and as a result you may experience some slowdown on these machines. My home and work laptops are such machines and ran both the old and new versions without issue, but if you have experienced slowdown on a computer that really should be able to run this, that could be the reason.
You can find the official download for Street Fighter X Mega Man V2 at the official Mega Man group, over at Capcom Unity.
