Mega Man Maker does what Capcom didn't


A new update brings extra items and weapons into the mix

Years back Capcom was set to release a Mega Manlevel creator project that pre-dated Nintendo’sMario Maker called Mega Man Universe. Given the massive history Capcom could have drawn from (think of say, Battle Networkassets mashed up with old school titles), it could have been something truly special. But alas, it was a victim of the Mega ManApocalypse, where basically every vestige of the Blue Bomber outside of compilations and re-releases was erased.

A small team of fans managed to create a “Maker” of their own though, and released Mega Man Makerearlier this year. Just this week Version 1.1 hit, which provides extra content like items, tools, and weapons to use. Right now Makerclocks in at “46 enemies, 29 level objects, 12 bosses, 24 special weapons, 40 backgrounds, 129 tilesets, and 63 music tracks.”

It also has an amazingly adorable mouse cursor with little googly eyes.

Version 1.1 [Mega Man Maker] Thanks Jeff!
