Mega Man, one of the much loved and much betrodden staples of our childhoods has finally returned to us via the medium of film!

He was once Japanese game developer Capcom's poster-bot, but after a spate of sub-par console outings he was placed back in the official cupboard to never see the light of day again, despite a few well-worthy fan-made adventures.

But, for our viewing pleasure, Mega Man has been let out of his boxroom to stretch his robo-legs and dust off his arm-blaster by the legends over at Loot Crate, who've produced this kick-ass fan-made short! Have a look will ya?

That was pretty sick, no? Not bad for a gritty realization of a now defunct hero? So why Capcom, why must you keep him from us?! Imagine a Mega Man movie, or even a tie-in where he takes on Robocop or something...hmm, I smell a fan fiction coming on...

If you haven't got the time to watch the video, you must be wondering what I'm talkin' about. Let me fill you in with a -

Breakdown!

Didn't see that one coming, huh?

Meanwhile, Somewhere Downtown...

"It looks dirty."
"It looks dirty."

It's lovely here this time of year. Here we have the scene being set with a super pretty establishing shot.

Uh-Oh...

Down at the Robotics Warehouse, some scientists have been taken hostage by "a small band of terrorists," in their effort to steal some "top secret materials." Ooh, if only they had someone super powered to save them!

Not the Scientists!

Not so clever now, huh?
Not so clever now, huh?

Yeah, they've definitely been taken hostage.

A Shadowy Figure Approaches...

"HE'S BEHIND YOU!"
"HE'S BEHIND YOU!"

Here we have a robo-sentry doing a perimeter search. Yeah, good work ro-bro. Surprised he didn't notice the shadow.

Man Down!

"You should learn to mind your surroundings."
"You should learn to mind your surroundings."

One of the robo-creeps has been mysteriously taken out as the tension escalates...

D'you Feel Lucky, Punk?

Spooked by a quick moving shadow, the terrorists check out a darkened room, only to be met by a charging arm-cannon!

He's Here...

Now the remaining few terrorists regroup with their hostages awaiting...

Mega Man!

Awesome's awakening

He has returned and is ready to kick some evil-doer ass!

Charging Arm Cannon...

"MOM, LOOK!"
"MOM, LOOK!"

Oh sick!

Facetime Activate!

"Snake?"
"Snake?"

He's so badass he's even got time for a quick call! But this is no bragging opportunity, word is a new challenger approaches...

Enter, Ryu

AWESOME!
AWESOME!

Because, why not?

Haduken X Arm-Cannon

Sick, sick, SICK!
Sick, sick, SICK!

Then...
