Keiji Inafune Explains Why Mega Man Is Blue

Interesting piece of #videogames history !

mega man years

The creator of Mega Man and former Capcom producer Keiji Inafune explained at PAX Prime why his iconic character is blue. Inafune stated that the development team wanted to create a blue character, but Inafune thought this was “gross”. However, the team explained to him that on the NES the colour palette for blue was a larger variety than any other colour so they could be more descriptive with the character design. Keiji accepted this and thought it would be interesting to have a uniquely blue robot.  Inafune says that he decided to change Mega Man’s colour when he gets new weapons as he felt it would be strange to have a blue robot shoot red flames.
