Street Fighter x Tekken: Mega Man alternate attire possible

Score one for the Mega Man cosplayer?

Yesterday, Capcom revealed that Pac-Man and bad boxart "Mega Man" would be playable in Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) as exclusives for the PS3 and PS Vita. While Pac-Man looks decent, Mega Man looks like he spent 20 years at McDonalds.

This left many fans of the Blue Bomber disappointed. One fan on the Capcom-Unity forums asked if a more traditional Mega Man costume would ever see a release.

See the response of Capcom Vice President Christian Svensson after the jump:

Blind Nova: "Ono just tweeted that Bad Box Art Mega Man was chosen when talking to Inafune a year ago confirming he was planned before the Mega Man messes started."

Svensson: "All true."

Fan: "Is there any chance at a more traditional "costume" for Mega Man in Street Fighter X Tekken? What about using the "Mega Man" seen on the movie-posters in Dead Rising? Or maybe a look based on the Ruby-Spears cartoon? That way, we have the option of a less-creepy incarnation of the Blue Bomber, while still playing along with the slightly-cheesy nature."

Svensson: "Interesting suggestion. Maybe. Let me chat about it with Ono."
