Mega Man’s 22nd Birthday featuring Keiji Inafune — Video Game Super Slam

TONIGHT I'M GONNA ROCK YOU

WELCOME TO THE GUN SHOW. NO CONSOLE DEBATES ALLOWED. JUST PURE UNADULTERATED MAN POWER.

Today Is A Beautiful Day. Granted, it's technically 1AM my time and I am tired like no other, but It Is A Good Day Nonetheless. Why??

Capcom Unity, Capcom's in-house social networking site, hosted a Mega Man birthday party and streamed it live to the internet, registering 80,000 unique visitors watching the stream by the end of the two-hour production. Keiji Inafune, creator of the Megaman franchise himself was present, as was Hitoshi Ariga, mangaka for the up coming Mega Man Megamix comic books -- which, confirmed as of tonight, will be published stateside by Capcom's main squeeze Udon Comics. There were plenty of other important Japanese people and I'm sure they had names but I was sharing a video stream with 79,999 of my closest friends...it was kind of choppy. I missed their names. My apologies.

So, what came out of this little event? What was the BIG UNREVEALED NEWS?!
