In “Oh, what ever could it mean?!” news, Capcom has filed a trademark for a new Mega Man game called Mega Man Universe.
The patent covers everything from “computer games in the form of cartridges, cassettes, discs or tapes” to downloadable mobile games to screen savers and ring tones. No mention of online games, which seems a strange omission given the MMO-like nature of the title. Still, I guess that could be included under the vast umbrella of various media types outline in the filing, so don’t lose hope just yet (assuming you are desperate for an MMO based on the Mega Man universe).
I reached out to Capcom to see what info they’re willing to share. I’ll let you know if they pass along anything worth passing along.
