Mega Man 7 Was Completed in Just 3 Months

Mega Man 11 producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya goes behind the scenes

While fans wait in anticipation for CAPCOM's newly-announced Mega Man 11 game, now is a great time to revisit the popular platformer series. Game Informer sat down with the newest game's producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya to discuss Mega Man 7 and how the creative team somehow managed to put together a whole game in three months.

Tsuchiya divulges that he has a love-hate relationship with the game's Freeze Man stage. Namely, that while he considers the game his favorite, he also always plays the stage first to get it out of the way since he can't stand the sliding floors.

Maybe even more shocking than the game's overall turnaround time is that two weeks prior to finishing, Tsuchiya was asked to implement the game's Battle Mode. In the interview, he swears he'll never ask his team to do something like that again.

Mega Man 7 is included in the upcoming Mega Man Collection 1 and Mega Man Collection 2 release for Nintendo Switch in 2018. The games will have amiibo support. The two collections together comprise the first 10 numbered Mega Man games.
