On December 8th, Capcom announced that they’d be bringing out Street Fighter x Mega Man to commemorate Mega Man’s 25th Anniversy on December 17th, 2012 as a free PC download.

Street Fighter X Mega Man, our playable Xmas card to the 25th anniversary of two of Capcom’s most revered franchises, went live in the wee hours of the night. As one might expect for an awesome FREE game, our servers are getting hammered somethin’ fierce. While you wait for your download, why not enjoy a candid look at how this grassroots love song came together?!

Capcom also released a video detailing how this project all came about, shared some info about the game…

But the game has been met with some problems, not only have the servers been hit with a lot of fans trying to download the game (which results in slow download speeds, or receiving a corrupted file), the game itself has been slow for some fans. I downloaded the game as soon as it was available, and I have found the game to be slow. I started a thread about it at Capcom Unity, and some fans are experiencing the same things I have been experiencing.

Nonetheless, Capcom released a few direct downloads for those who’ve been having problems with downloading the game: US version, EU version. To learn more about Street Fighter x Mega Man, check out the FAQ.
