At midnight of December 16th, into the wee morning of December 17th, Street Fighter x Mega Man was released. Street Fighter x Mega Man is a free PC download that can be downloaded at Capcom’s Mega Man Group Page. So, you may have a lot of questions…
Keep in mind, most of this info can be found in the game itself….
What’s the story of Street Fighter x Mega Man?
Having fought countless robot masters over the years, Mega Man is ready to lay back, relax and enjoy his 25th Anniversary. Getting wind of this, Ryu and his fellow Street Fighters want one last battle before they let their own anniversary finish. Charge up your mega busters and stretch out your lightning legs, this is Street Fighter X Mega Man!
A true collaboration between Capcom and its fans for Mega Man’s and Street Fighter’s 25th Anniversary, Street Fighter x Mega Man was created and developed by Singapore native Seow Zong Hui (aka “Sonic”), with an original soundtrack by Luke Esquivel (aka “A_Rival”), and with support provided Capcom, Street Fighter X Mega Man stars the Blue Bomber as he goes toe-to-toe with some of Street Fighter’s most beloved characters complete with their own individual themed stages and boss battles. Jump, shoot, and use your special new Street Fighter abilities to defeat your foes and become the world’s strongest robot!

How can Mega Man copy the World Warriors’ powers if they’re human?
SFxMM is not a cannon story to the Mega Man universe, and according to Capcom, the game is supposed to be taken as a fun game…
Well, the game is non-canon, so it doesn’t have to follow the in-universe reasonings for how things works, it just has to follow how the gameplay formula works.
Alternatively, one could just believe that the Street Fighters that MegaMan fights are robotic copies or something.
I will update this story as I receive new information about SFxMM.
