First Mega Man Universe Footage
Well...not exactly exclusive. Gamespot, IGN, and 1Up each received a unique gameplay segment from Mega Man Universe, but each two-minute clip shows the same starting segment: Mega Man Producer Keiji Inafune explaining that now it was time to demonstrate how Mega Man Universe finally plays.
The Gamespot video focuses on "Bad Box Art Mega Man," a character based on the poor rendition of Mega Man on the original title's box art. The IGN video demonstrates a montage of gameplay with "Mega Man," which is a lankier, more robotic version of the blue bomber from what we might be used to. Finally, the 1UP/Gamevideos video takes a look at a montage starring "Rockman," a Mega Man character that looks authentic to Inafune's character designs.
The videos end with the same tableau, a fourth character shown off as "Ryu," playable in Mega Man Universe. Of course, the teaser trailer probably hinted at that already.
Mega Man Universe is expected for a 2011 release for XBLA and PSN.
