Today Capcom finally revealed the covert art for the official Rockman 11 Original Soundtrack, drawn by no other than Ryuji Higurashi, Rockman 11 character designer. In addition to this, the soundtrack will feature an original vocal theme. It will be sung by Ayaka Fukuhara, the voice of Rockman.
The CD will be released on November, 14 for 3,200 yen.
Hot off the heels of the latest Robot Master reveals Capcom also announced at Tokyo Game Show that Devil May Cry 5 will be getting a "Deluxe Edition" that comes with the Mega Buster Devil Breaker weapon for Nero. See it in action in the trailer above; more details after the jump.
Ryuji Higurashi, one of Capcom's main illustrators who has worked on various Mega Man titles over the years, was interviewed by Rockman Unity about his involvement in his "Supervisor" role when working with Sentinel Mega Man figures. The interviews go pretty in depth about the figure design process, what difficulties there were, and some potential news on the future of the lineup!

UPDATE: Check out the translated pages here! Thanks, Midori!
By way of Rockman Unity, here's a few pages from the recent Rockman 11 one-shot manga by Ryo Takamisaki. These pages appear to cover the game's initial moments: Dr. Wily's army wreaking havoc upon a city and Dr. Light imparting the tale of the Double Gear system to his children.
The 26-page, single chapter story is now available to read within the pages of September's Coro Coro Aniki. You can order the issue from Amazon Japan here. There are no current plans for additional chapters nor an official English-language adaptation.
I'm more than positive a scanlation will appear down the road, though. Stay tuned!

Here's a small sampling of the Wily Numbers Instrumental tracks that come with pre-order copies of Mega Man 11. The video above covers Block Man, Fuse Man, and Impact Man themes.
For the uninitiated, these are alternate tracks that play during the game. The only method to obtain them (so far) is via pre-order. So if you've got your copy of Mega Man 11 reserved, these themes will be available to you at launch!

Want to check out Ryo Takamisaki's one-shot Rockman 11 manga? For 720 yen (plus shipping), you can import a copy of this month's Coro Coro Aniki which is featuring the 26-page story. Grab it from Amazon Japan here.
And because it can't be said enough, bear in mind that this is a one-shot. There are no plans for additional chapters. That, too, also makes it unlikely the manga will be translated in English. Official, that is. I'm sure there's some crafty, well-versed-fellow among you capable of translating it. And when you do, send it my way. I'll spread the good word.
Thanks for the tip, Vhyper1985!
