Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 Announced

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 is indeed happening. The good word comes from the official Gunvolt Twitter account following the opening of Inti Creates' FanFesta 2105 event. The game's website has gone live but it's a bit topsy-turvy at the moment due to heavy traffic.

In the meantime, Famitsu has a first look at a brand new character (above). Gunvolt 2 will hit the Nintendo 3DS later this year.

More details as they come.

Rockman X Prototype Hits eBay

If you'd like to own a little slice of Mega Man history, you may have a chance on eBay right now. A prototype for Rockman X has appeared on the auction block and, as noted by SNES Central, it could be the same one that appeared on D4's website some years ago. In other words, we could be looking at an early development build.

Nothing is confirmed just yet, however. I am communicating with the seller to verify just how early we're talking about. In the meantime you can scope it out for yourself right here. With six days left to bid, the price is going to skyrocket.

Thanks to Keiji Dragon for the tip.
