When Yoshinori Ono was asked on Twitter why he chose to put Bad Box Art Mega Man in Street Fighter X Tekken, he responded in a fairly interesting way.

I consulted with Mr.Megaman(his name is Mr.I…) about it 1 years ago.Its result! ;D

Mr. I eh? A reference to Keiji Inafune, Mega Man’s creator? Might he have had input on the game even after he left Capcom?

Ono also went on to talk about why there are so many guest characters in the first place. He assured us that these guest characters aren’t “using up character space.” He said that the Street Fighter and Tekken Characters are using up the actual space in the roster and every other guest character was made on top of that.

He finished by saying that more normal Street Fighter X Tekken characters will be revealed soon.

    I wonder what your opinion on Megaman’s popularity is now after Mighty No. 9 became the 7th most successfully funded project on Kickstarter 😛
