What I think nobody at Capcom took into consideration is the poor timing of such a comic reveal. I'm all for "Hobo with a Megabuster" Megaman here (because I have a sense of humor), but after the cancellation of Legends 3 and Universe, and the "lack of Megaman in MvC3" (despite having two VERY POPULAR characters to represent the franchise regardless), this goofiness can very easily be misconstrued as a big middle finger.
Independent from that statement, though, Capcom is perhaps the single largest corporate gaming entity that has such a thorough loathing for its fans and consumer base. While I have no doubt that Hobo with a Megabuster is just an unfortunate coincidence (Inafune himself signed off on it after all), Capcom is still pretty awful to the people who want to buy their products, even moreso lately.
Capcom are just plain refusing to let me give them money lately. Mega Man and Ace Attorney are series I'm near guaranteed to buy, but every Mega Man game gets cancelled and the chances of us getting another Ace Attorney outside of Japan are looking slim...
Eh... games get canceled all the times. Mega Man isn't the exception to the rule. Okay, it sucks that both MML3 and MMU got canceled and MvC3 doesn't have a playable Mega Man... but that does not mean Capcom hates Mega Man or his fans. Most fans are just too anal about it. They could easily use Zero's alternate costume... he looks exactly like Mega Man X. At least Mega Man X used the Z-Saber in Mega Man X6.
Because of Bara Man being in SFxT, I want to give Capcom my money because I love how they actually made him look awesome (and sexy) compared to the original American NES box art.. Rock Man? Pffft!! Gimme me a real Mega MAN!
Oh, yeah... Love them big... I gotta pick up this game... it's got what I want... Final Fight characters (Rolento, Poison, Hugo Andore, maybe Cody and Guy) and big handsome men like Abel, Bob and Mega MAN, and as a bonus, Pac-Man, a bear and two cats are in it, too.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
