Capcom on why Mega Man is the company’s unofficial mascot

This information comes from the Capcom-Unity forums…

“…we don’t have an “official” mascot. We have a logo, that’s it.

As far as unofficial mascots go, however, yes, MM would definitely be that. I have actually heard someone discuss this, and I think the reasoning was something akin to Mega Man best embodying the spirit of the company.

So apparently in addition to making great games, Capcom is also here to save the planet from overthrow by evil robot masters (and according to recorded history so far, I’d say we’re doing pretty well–2009 and still no overthrows). ” – Capcom’s Senior Manager of Community, Seth Killian

For me, when I think of Capcom, one of the first characters that comes to mind is Mega Man…Other than Amaterasu! All jokes aside, I really think that he is a great character to represent the company. What do you guys think?
