Game Description: The Mega Man Anniversary Collection pays tribute to the brainchild behind this multimillion unit selling franchise, Keiji Inafune, and the original games that he created, said Todd Thorson, director of marketing, Capcom Entertainment.

In the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, players will be challenged to see if they have the skills to master some of the most extreme Mega Man titles ever released and to unlock a cache of bonus features that includes 30 minutes of anime, producer interviews, footage from the original TV commercials, and a history of the series.
No longer a platform-hopping lil' guy in blue, Mega Man is now a muscular online avatar of sorts, an extension of his offline counterpart Lan. I'm reminded of the anthropomorphic logos that were common in the 1950's but were retired in modern times, because a walking stack of tires (Michelin) just wasn't "cool." Perhaps this MegaMan.EXE avatar was brought to the console by Capcom in order to prove that their gaming icon can stay relevant.
Culture changes. And whatever the intents or purposes of the culture makers (or artists, choose your term), they have to change with the times. On one level, it's a rather cynical process: aging artists and gray-haired entertainment execs trying to stay hip and fresh by copying what the kids on the streets are doing. Appropriation and exploitation is sometimes the name of the game.
