Nintendo unveiled the next entry in the long running Smash Bros franchise, and the upcoming game for the Wii U will be due for release in 2014 sporting many fan-favorite characters from a wide girth of popular titles and brands, including Capcom's own little blue bomber.
Nintendo decided to play a dear homage to Mega Man, including the original Blue Bomber that made waves on Nintendo's earlier consoles and handhelds, opting to keep the entry as traditional as possible. No gross bad-box-art Mega Man, no Mega Man X, no Maverick Hunter, no Hollywood blockbuster AAA-style Mega Man reincarnations like that mess that was Bomberman Zero on the Xbox 360, just the classic proto-blasting, wall-hopping hero that we used to watch and love on Captain 'N'.
In fact, in addition to the trailer above that includes the new Animal Crossing entry, Nintendo had a very specific trailer made just entirely dedicated to Mega Man, similar to how they paid tribute to Sonic with some special promos for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I'm kind of hoping Sonic stays this time around so we can finally have Mega Man, Sonic, Mario and Samus all do battle as a classic four-way between the legends of the 1990s console wars.
You can check out the new trailer for the upcoming Smash Bros. Wii U game below, featuring nothing but Mega Man, or you can pay some love to Nintendo and Namco Bandai for the four-player fighting game by hitting up the official website.
