After the release of classic game, "Super Mario Run" into the iOS phones, another classic game will have its comeback next year. Capcom also wants a piece in the mobile industry with the game developers reviving "Mega Man" and making the game available for all iOS and Android phones.

Confirmed 'Mega Man' For iOS & Android Phones

According to iDigital Times, Capcom confirms that "Mega Man" would most likely have a comeback by making the classic shooter game available in iOS and Android phones. The announcement was confirmed by Capcom's official Twitter account along with a registration link attached.

During the "Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite" announcement, Capcom stated that the game developers are currently focused on reviving games that have had no new entries or are otherwise dormant. After that, Capcom was right away making "Mega Man", but it's just not what fans and gamers had expected to be.

There are several "Mega Man" fans that worry if the game might suffer into a difficult control system in the mobile device since "Mega Man" is known of its requirement of timing and precision. The game's tight controls and a fast-paced gameplay might not work on mobile phones.

Meanwhile, Capcom will release six "Mega Man" titles for the mobile phone game this upcoming January. Each "Mega Man" game is available in Google Play for Android and App Store for Apple devices and every game is $2 each for download.

"Mega Man" was a game in the Nintendo Entertainment System with the first game introduced in 1987, almost 30 years ago and expanding up to 1993 when the sixth game was released. For more "Mega Man" news and updates stay tuned to GameNGuide!
