Street Fighter x Mega Man patch coming on Friday

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 14 January 2013 23:59 GMT

Street Fighter x Mega Man’s “Version 2.0” patch is due before the end of the week, and includes a number of much-requested fixes.

As detailed on Capcom Unity, the patch will be available directly from the publisher’s Mega Man hub from about 5:00PM PT on Friday.

The patch only adds one significant new feature, which is passwords in the style of Mega Man 2. Otherwise, it’s all business:

  • Confirmation prompt before exiting (ESC) or resetting (F12) the game
  • E Tank glitch and various other bugs fixed
  • Improved controller support (Game defaults to keyboard on launch; make sure controller is plugged in prior to opening the file, then go into Options menu and set keys)
  • Take screenshots using F9
  • M Bison buffed a bit

Capcom also noted that the fan-made fighter suffers performance issues on Intel Integrated GPUs, but has not announced a fix of any kind.

Street Fighter x Mega Man is a free download released to mark the blue hero’s 25th anniversary.
