No idea why I didn’t put this together sooner! Mix the mythology of Iron Man with the retro stylings of Mega Man and you get a concoction that just works. Don’t believe me? Then hit play on the clip above and watch it all come together in a classic game we all wish we could have played 20 years ago. Quick warning: if you haven’t seen the first Iron Man film, this clip contains spoilers (albeit in abridged form).
OK, I realise Mega Man is a robot, while Iron Man is a dude in an exoskeleton. But there are enough similarities that replacing the cyan-suited android with the red-and-yellow gear, you’d swear it was meant to be, always and forever.
