CAPCOM made a series of announcements for its Megaman franchise at PAX East's World of CAPCOM Panel, which celebrated Megaman's 25th anniversary. CAPCOM hinted at a new project to answer the call of fans, but stated that they still are working "behind the scenes" before they can announce anything officially. Other announcements included the sale of Megaman 4 (the NES game) on 3DS Virtual Console on April 25, Megaman 5 on May 16, and Megaman 6 in June, as well as introduction of a Megaman USB stick and collectible figures in the CAPCOM Unity Store and localization of a new series of art books due in the second half of 2013.
A more recent game for iOS devices entitled Megaman Xover was released in Japan last December, however, the North American release of the game has been postponed based upon largely negative feedback from Megaman fans. CAPCOM did release another crossover game for PC entitled Street Fighter X Megaman, made by a dedicated fan in December 2012.
