Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS newcomer Mega Man seems to have learned how to execute Ken’s fierce Dragon Punch from Street Fighter. Does that instantly make him the cheapest character on the circuit? No, probably not.

Capcom has announced an all-new Mega Man game is headed to iOS. Andriasang reports the social RPG will mark the franchise’s 25th anniversary by including bits and pieces of every game world the series has spawned to date. Players build their own unique Mega Man from bits and pieces of various models scattered around the world, and will be able to team up with friends some how. The game’s Japanese title is Rockman Xover, and there’s no word of western localisation – but Capcom’s mobile arm is pretty profitable, so there’s some hope.

Capcom has announced Pac-Man and Mega Man will be available for download via PSN on March 13 for Street Fighter X Tekken. Both are rather odd-looking renditions: Mega Man is based off the “bad box art “from the original NES game, and Pac-Man rides around a “Mokujin mech-thing that shoots lasers.” SFxT launches on March 6 in the US and March 9 in Europe. The PC version will be released in May, and the Vita version is slated for fall.

Not much else is known other than the logo, but it can’t be as worse as it was last year when Capcom cancelled spin-offs Universe and Legends. Despite the cannings, the publisher’s already said the IP still remains “key” to the company.
