Street Fighter x Mega Man, a free crossover celebrating the blue hero’s 25th anniversary, is due for a patch and polish.

Although Capcom “provided financial assistance, as well as ongoing feedback regarding bosses, gameplay and other issues” to the project, the onetime fan project is a little raw. Speaking with The Mega Man Network, Capcom community manager Brett “Brelston” Elston said the publisher has decided to give the retro-styled release a working over.

“Given the tight dev window, we know there are a few rough edges left, even with a dozen people looking at this,” he said.

“To that end, we can say we’re working on a V2 that will release soon and hopefully address some of those known issues. It’s not adding content, but we’ve been reading responses and can tighten up a few things before the end of the year.”

Capcom had said it was considering a patch, but this is the first occasion on which it has given a timeframe.

Elston said one of the new version’s features is likely to be an end to accidental closures when the escape key is smacked.

Thanks, CVG.
