Sakurai MAY! team up with capcom on SSB4.
During IGN's interview with Masahiro Sakurai, the legendary designer behind the Super Smash Bros. titles and the inventor of Kirby, we asked him about the possibility of a Capcom character crossing over into the next Super Smash Bros., which is coming to both 3DS and Wii U. Here's what he had to say:
"I can't say that it's entirely out of the realm of possibility that some Capcom character could appear in the next Smash Bros. The big problem, though, comes from the idea of trying to get characters from a completely different universe to fit with the style that has been dictated by Nintendo's characters in a fighting game.

"In fact, I actually think it's a miracle that we got Smash Bros. and all the Nintendo characters to work together in the first place. Especially when you bring Pokemon into the mix and a lot of the complications that are caused by that being an almost completely different entity on its own, it's really something. So this is something that obviously will come up more as we get started on the new Smash Bros. development, but keeping those things in mind I think is important."

Development on the title hasn't begun yet, but it's encouraging that Mr. Sakurai sees the biggest hurdle as one of ensuring a good fit, as opposed to other potential complications. Given that both Solid Snake and Sonic appeared in Brawl, a classic Capcom character or two could definitely work in the new title.

We also asked Mr. Sakurai whether, looking back at Brawl and Melee, there were any things that he wasn't able to include - but really wanted to - that he could potentially put into the new title? He told is that: "There were actually a lot of things, but perhaps that's something to be talked about when we get closer to discussing that game in more detail."

Guess we'll have to wait and see. We'll have our full interview w
ith Mr. Sakurai up next week, so stay tuned.

People need to realize that Sakurai's wording is in the quotes and the rest is just speculation.

This proves nothing for the characters, really, but it's still good to know that we at least have a chance of having Mega Man fight Samus.
Dashing Professor Beef wrote at 10:21 PM on Jun 9, 2011 :
There's nothing in the quotes or elsewhere that even hints that they're thinking of teaming with each other. It'd be like me making a blog that said "SONY AND NINTENDO MAY TEAM UP TO MAKE KID ICARUS AND GOD OF WAR CROSSOVER," and in the blog all anyone says is "it could happen."

Because Megaman can screw attack, lay bombs, is as athletic as samus, haz a zero suit and can morph into a ball right?
I hate this mentality: 'THEY BOTH HAVE ARM CANONS SO THEY'LL BE CLONES'
