Introducing Rockman X Dive's New Operator: RiCO

Ever since the Rockman X Dive Official website opened, a new Operator-like character has been teased by Capcom Taiwan. And finally, we have our first look at her via an early press release sent to Taiwanese media outlets and later an update on both the Facebook Official Page and the game's Official website.

Her name is RiCO and will be voiced by Reina Ueda. She will be responsible for assisting the players and her personality is described as cheerful and lively.

So what do you think? Let us know in the comments!

Command Mission's Ferham Teased for Rockman X Dive

Rockman X Dive's love affair with Command Mission continues with the possible return of a fan-favorite adversary.

The above image was posted to the game's official Facebook today. It features a silhouette of an unannounced character overlooking the main playable cast that, when zoomed in, looks pretty darn familiar. The sharp, pointed edges of a harrier. The "winged" head crest. Yeah; she's back.

Now, there's absolutely no official confirmation that Ferham will be a playable character. But like I said above, she is pictured alongside characters that are confirmed to be playable (Cinnamon has yet to be officially announced but I know for certain she's in). Also (and I might have said this already) but Capcom Taiwan very much intend on filling Rockman X Dive with a variety of playable characters over time. It won't just be X series characters they'll add, too. You can expect to see other "Mega Men" too... eventually.

More news on Rockman X Dive soon!

Rockman X Dive – Co-Op Mode Announced!

Via Capcom's Taiwan YouTube Channel, the first Rockman X Dive update for the week is none other than a trailer to announce the inclusion of Co-op gameplay in the game. Rockman X Dive is now the first official Mega Man game to offer traditional, same-screen co-op mutliplayer.

In the video, we can see Vile using the Rifle we saw in another video some days ago and perhaps more interestingly we can see a microphone button in the upper right corner of the screen, which suggests we might be able to chat with our Co-op partner. Also, below Vile's player icon, we can see some kind of score meter that, curiously, doesn't go up when Vile kills enemies. Perhaps it has another function?

As for the stage itself... it looks like an homage to Aeolus' stage, the Floating Ruins from Mega Man ZX Advent. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

REMASTERED TRACKS ROCKMAN ZERO Translation Part 1: "Notes on Zero World & Notes on Tracks"

Continuing our Remastered Tracks translation project, today we bring you a complete translation of  Remastered Tracks Rockman Zero's booklet. This is the first music CD Inti Creates published under their record label and was originally released on January 23, 2004. Typical of Inti's albums, there's a mix of remastered music and drama tracks here. However, as opposed to future releases, this album only contains one disc.

The Mega Man Live-Action Movie is Probably Shelved

Back in October 2018, Capcom announced a live-action movie revolving around the Blue Bomber tentatively titled "Mega Man". It was intended to be produced by Masi Oka and written and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, respectively. Since then, no major updates on the flick had emerged until this past Tuesday.

Following Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox, news recently surfaced from Variety that Disney would be making some big changes, including a major refocus of Fox's movie projections and a complete overhaul of their upcoming projects. Only a few of the projects projected over the next five years remain: remakes of Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and a slate of unannounced superhero projects. Of the 250 projected films removed from the road map, Mega Man was included.

It is important to note, while it looks as if the Mega Man movie was shelved, it is potentially possible for another studio to pick up the project. Disney has no legal ownership of the movie's theatrical rights, mind you. Capcom and the creative team behind the project could be shopping it around as we speak.

Should more news surface in the future, we'll be sure to let everyone know!
