During a question and answer session with Capcom at Comic-Con 2009, a young kid declared he wanted to know what's next for Mega Man. Capcom tried to steer the kid towards Mega Man Star Force 3, but since the kid already owned that one, he wanted to know what was happening next.
Capcom community manager Seth Killian tried to answer best he could. Killian said Mega Man 9 was a "big surprise" to much of the company. Keiji Inafune, the man behind the blue bomber and a driving force for much of what Capcom develops these days, is the one who makes that decision.
"When Inafune-san wants to make a game happen he can really make it happy quickly," said Killian. "I think it's worth being hopeful."
Another game just like Mega Man 9, please.
