Capcom has released an official, fan-made homage upon celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter and Mega Man franchises.

The crossover between the two series merges conventions from the platformer Mega Man and its fighting game stablemate, as nimble-fingered players guide the blue robo-hero to face off against eight named Street Fighter characters.
