In a recent press release, Capcom expressed great interest in reviving dormant intellectual properties, i.e developing new games for series that have not had new entries for a while. In response to this promising prospect, GameSpark polled their readers on which Capcom IP they'd like to see revived. Mega Man Legends topped the poll with over 200 votes. The hopes for Mega Man Legends 3 are certainly not dead overseas.
Second to a new Mega Man Legends, 150 GameSpark readers said they'd like to see a new Battle Network followed by a hundred votes for a new Mega Man X. A new classic series entry landed at #6 with fifty votes, and a new Star Force at #10 with a little less than 50 votes.
It's worth mentioning this is not an officially sanctioned poll, but it's interesting to see where the mindset is for our friends across the pond.

It wouldn't be Dead Rising without a little Mega Man cosplay, no? Dead Rising 4 is out in the wild and sure enough, there's three Mega Man-themed suits for you to find.

Ahead of Rockman X's 25th anniversary, a novelization of the series has been announced. The book is being produced by Japanese publisher PHP Institute, written by Tsubasa Todoroki, and illustrated by none other than Rockman X manga artist Yoshiro Iwamoto. It is tentatively scheduled to release in Japan on January 26th, 2017.
Presently, it remains unclear just how much of the X series will be covered in the book. Iwamoto and Todoroki promise forthcoming details shortly. What's more, there's no word on availability outside of Japan. Importing is always an option, but there's little assurance the book will be available in English at this time. I'll keep you posted nonetheless.

The reveal of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite's Captain America and Morrigan brought an extra surprise: X's First Armor. Though not officially confirmed, it would appear X dons his X1 duds when engaging one of his Super moves. The move in question comes in at 0:32 in the clip above.
I know it's not the best video but it'll make do for now. I'll update this post when Capcom rolls out the official version. UPDATE: Got it!
