Let’s take Mega Man‘s 8-bit glory and mash it up with the wonder that is Street Fighter, and then release the result as a free download exclusively for PC gamers.

Sound good? Good. Because Capcom has announced that they’re doing just that.

Street Fighter X Mega Man is a new take on the classic Mega Man formula. Players play as the 8-bit Blue Bomber and take on Street Fighter characters in place of Robot Masters. Yep, from there you’ll be able to acquire their powers and use them against other villains.

It’s free, folks. You’ll need to head to the Capcom Unity page linked in the source at the base of this post in order to snag the game for PC.

This freebie comes in celebration of Mega Man‘s 25th anniversary. You’ll be able to download it starting December 17th, 2012. That’s a week from now, so mark your calendars.
