  It’s always shame when characters get cut from games, but I suspect that it’s never an easy thing to do. Afterall, for to know about some of these characters means that someone must have put in a lot of time and effort into making them at least somewhat presentable. The Link and Samus in …

The Fans of Mega Man Created His Enemies – Did You Know Gaming: Mega Man Part 2

So Capcom had a bunch of fans submit ideas for Robot Masters?
