A new patch is available for Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One that adds the Rewind feature from the Nintendo Switch version. The feature allows players to hold down a button to turn back time. It comes in handy for beginners and rusty old-timers.
So yeah; update your game now! It's up!

To mark the onset of the winter season, Capcom are rolling out a pair of super slick Irregular Hunter jackets. They come in two flavors: "17th Elite Unit X" (pictured) and "0th Special Unit Zero." Each jacket features their own unique Irregular Hunter symbols and markings. Be warned, my friends; these jackets aren't cheap. How does $110 sound? Yikes!
Additional sizes, images and pre-orders are available via Play Asia.

The time has come, good friends. Here is the final wallpaper of 2018 from the Rockman Unity app. Unfortunately there's nothing new this time – it's a collage of old art from different sources. It's not bad... just 'eh'. And it's weird, right? I mean every other wallpaper this year has been stellar. They're going out with a whimper here.
Regardless, you can download the full resolution here!

If you missed out on UDON Collectables' various convention-exclusive Mega Man goods in the past year, you're in luck. For the next three days you can pick up those sweet collector pins and the 30th anniversary cross-section shirt at UDON Collectibles' pop-up shop. They're gone after December 10th!
So if you're in need of some fun Mega Man stocking stuffers for the holiday season, this is it. The lucky draw pins are my favorite of the bunch – highly recommended. Do note that they're sold in blind bags, though. You won't know what you get at first.
Grab yours ASAP at the link above!

The chapter discusses X's battle with Spark Mandrill, as well as a little more than X bargained for...
Anyone is able to read from the cover of the novel up to Chapter 3 at this point, so consider reading all of what's done so far. The project is still under way, so please be patient with the group as they continue to release updates.
Please also support Todoroki's novel! The novel is available on Amazon (JP) for purchase.

Following the ill-reception of the just-released PlayStation Classic, if there were any more reasons to be disappointed with the console, the Mega Man community would certainly have one for them to add to.
It would appear that Mega Man Legends was, at some point, considered for inclusion in the PlayStation Classic mini console. The source code released by Sony Interactive Entertainment earlier this week references the game, along with international versions, under the individual names MEGA_MAM_LEGENDS_EU [sic], MEGA_MAM_LEGENDS_JP [sic], MEGA_MAM_LEGENDS_US [sic]. No, not a Mega mother. Its suppose to be Mega Man. N and M are right next to each other on keyboards.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate countdown continues with our very own blue boy! The official Rockman Unity Twitter account posted a special tribute piece featuring Mega Man's Smash Bros. and Mega Man 11 incarnations. Just one day remains! (in Japan time)

If you've been hoping that UDON would reprint Mega Man Zero: Official Complete Works, well, the stars may finally be shining upon you. Amazon Canada recently put up a listing for a hardcover "Mega Man Zero: Official Complete Works" with a June 4th, 2019 release date (UPDATE: it's up on Amazon US now). It'll set you back $59.99 CDN or roughly $45.47 USD. That's so much more affordable than what we've got going on right now.
No word yet if this reprint will include any additional content. Based on previous Mega Man hardcover re-releases, though, it's doubtful. Still, it'd be nice if we at least got a spiffy new dust jacket. I mean, any opportunity to get Nakayama to draw new Zero art is a blessing.
We shall see. More news on this front as it comes!

We've known about these little guys since May, and it sounds like they're starting to pop up in the U.S. According to Rockman Corner readers Jimb0, RockMax, and Derek, individual blind packages of Mega Man Figural Keyrings have been spotted at Target and Walmart in Washington, California, and Michigan, respectively. Characters include Mega Man, Rush, Dr. Wily, Guts Man, Cut Man, Elec Man, Ice Man, Fire Man, Bomb Man, Roll, and Proto Man.
A few online retailers are loading up on these guys as well. Toywiz, Box Lunch, and eStar Land to name a few. Distribution is relatively new so we'll definitely be seeing these figures pop up elsewhere, too. Either way, these might make decent stocking suffers!
Thanks for the tip, fellas!
