Yes, there is a new Mega Man game coming in 2015 but no, it’s not a Mega Man game
So this is a Mega Man. Let's not beat around the bush. The team is made up of Mega Man veterans, Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune is leading the charge, and you'll attack the bosses in whatever order you choose while grabbing their powers. So yeah, if you wanted a proper Mega Man sequel, this is the way to get it.
The project is already funded, reaching the $900,000 goal since it's announcement at PAX Prime, so it seems like going the crowdfunding route was a smart move. You'll be able to see development as it happens, and offer feedback about the game's design. The game will be coming to consoles as well as PC if the $2.5 million stretch goal is met.
This is a strong team, working in a genre they know, in a style the fans clearly want. As Kickstarters go, this is a slam dunk, and I'm going to be backing the moment I'm done writing this. I don't have any snark or cynicism, this is cool stuff.
