If you’re a fan of Mega Man, Street Fighter, or just stupidly difficult platformers in general, then Capcom’s announcement a few days ago should have brought joy to your heart. Celebrating the anniversary of both Street Fighter and Mega Man, Capcom announced on their Unity blog that they will release a free PC game on December 17th titled Street Fighter X Mega Man. You’ll play as Mega Man, with iconic Street Fighter characters standing in for the traditional robot masters.

I just wonder who is going to be the first to come up with the proper order for taking down all of the Street Fighter bosses.
