FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES - June 14, 2007- Capcom Interactive, Inc. is bringing the blue bomber back to the mobile platform with the North American release of Mega Man® II. Considered by many fans and critics to be the best game in the series, Mega Man II casts players as the robotic Mega Man in adventure spanning 14 high-flying side-scrolling levels.
"Mega Man is one of the most popular franchises in the history of gaming and its legacy to Capcom incalculable," said Midori Yuasa, President, Capcom Interactive, Inc. "For a game to be worthy of the title "Mega Man" it has to meet a certain standard. We believe Mega Man II for mobile lives up to this standard, and delivers a fantastic play experience for the gamer on the go."
Throughout the game, players will encounter eight robot masters dubbed Metal Man, Flash Man, Quick Man, Bubble Man, Heat Man, Wood Man, Air Man and Crash Man each armed with a unique signature weapon. After defeating a robot master, Mega Man can then use the captured signature weapon against the remaining robot masters to devastating effect. In addition to the eight masters, players will have to fight several incarnations of the nefarious Dr. Wily before the final showdown with the mad scientist.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the beloved Mega Man franchise. To date, the series has generated more than 100 titles, the most of any Capcom brand, with sales of more than 26 million units worldwide. In addition to the mobile title, Capcom Entertainment will also release Mega Man Star Force TM and Mega Man® ZX Advent for the Nintendo DS TM system later this year.
